I don’t consider myself a girl that hoards makeup, I go back to basics and try to have only the things I need. I don’t wear crazy amounts of makeup but I do always leave the house with something on. Since I moved to our apartment (over a year ago) my makeup had been lying on a corner of the bathroom vanity inside makeup bags. Not seen all the makeup that I had many things where just growing old and never been used.
First I looked in Pinterest and started pining things that I liked to a board. From there I got the main idea of what I wanted to do to clean the space and make it look nicer.
Secondly I accessed how much make up I had and did a major cleanup. Starting with throwing out things I had no idea when I got them and started anew. Usually beauty products say their shelf life in the box that they come in. A quick tip I do, is add a little sticker to the back of the product say, an eye shadow, and write down the date that it would expire after opening so if I opened ion 04/14 and the shelf life is 12M then I write down 04/15. That way I don’t keep anything longer than needed.
As for the organizing portion I decided to get an acrylic tray with divisions that would hold most of my makeup. For the brushes I used and vintage style apothecary glass vase with a lid and cored them with some glass pebbles, like the ones used for floral arrangements. The rest of my brushes I added to a mason jar.
To complete the décor look I got a vintage frame for which I drew a special illustration for it. (If you would like one check out my store here to get one). Added a candle and an Amethyst cluster stone that has protection and calming effects, which you know we all need sometimes in this hectic life.
