Let’s be honest, your makeup counter is probably the most cluttered space in your room, second to your jewelry. It’s hard to keep it all together, from lipsticks to lip gloss to cream shadows and powder… who can keep up?! We sought out to figure out the best way to get it done (if you have a beauty counter) in just 7 steps.

Here’s how you do it:

Step 1: Find a space with good light and ample room
Step 2: Organize your makeup into groups
Step 3: Select & arrange a variety of containers (household, vintage, new!)
Step 4: Store by category from face to eyes, lips, nail polish, etc. Don’t forget your brushes!
*Tip: When storing lipstick, turn the labels up so that you can see the colors easily
Step 5: Don’t forget your beauty tools: mirror, Q-tips, cotton balls, tissues, tweezers & sharpener
Step 6: Add in other essentials: Moisturizer & Perfume
Step 7: Mark the date of purchase on makeup that expires

BONUS: Fill your makeup bag with everyday basics – easy to access & always ready to go!
