Whether we want to admit it or not, most of us tend to be beauty hoarders. We’re guilty of having an abundance of products, overflowing cupboards and one too many of everything. So, how do we begin tackling the exploding drawers? Follow these simple rules!
Out with the old, in with the new
It’s time to take inventory! Toss what you don’t use, keep what you do, and organize what remains. My rule of thumb is: When in doubt, throw it out.
Use freezer bags for an inexpensive and fast way to sort and store your beauty items. They’re a great way to see your products at a glance and include a label area for quick reference. Clear shoe or storage boxes are a handy way to store these bags, as well as palettes, beauty tools, nail polishes, etc. They easily fit into drawers or are stackable for room-saving convenience.
Get more beauty for your buck
One of the best ways to cut down on costs and cut out the extra products is by making palettes your new go-to beauty must-have. There are so many fabulous all-in-one palettes available to help you get you ready in a flash. Look for palettes that include products for eyes, lips and cheeks so that your basics are covered. You’re more likely to use up what you have by having less and palettes make beauty routines so much simpler.
Less impulse, more investment
Think quality over quantity – always! You get what you pay for so spend wisely and always think long term.
