It’s criminally easy to amass a medicine cabinet full of nail polish. And lip balms? You keep finding ones you thought were lost forever in your coat pockets. This is no way to live. So here are ten clever ways to store all of your beauty products with things you already own.
PERFUME ON A SPICE RACK
A recipe for success if you will.
MAKEUP BRUSHES IN AN EMPTY CANDLE JAR
Those Diptyque candles don’t come cheap. Might as well get some extra mileage out of those gorgeous jars.
OR A PLANTER
You could say that makeup brushes, like vegetation, bring things to life (in this case your sleep-deprived face).
NAIL POLISH IN A COOKIE JAR
With names like “angel food” and “hot coco,” it makes perfect sense.
OR A PICTURE FRAME
The perks of a polish wall without the full-blown pressure of answering your manicurist’s question: “Have you picked a color yet?”
COMPACTS ON A MAGNETIC BOARD
All you need is a magnetic board, some fetching fabric, a hot glue gun and some magnets to affix to the back of your compacts.
LIPSTICK AND LIP GLOSS IN SMALL LOAF PANS
Because let’s be real: you already upgraded to bigger pans.
HAIR PRODUCTS IN A SHOE ORGANIZER
Have you ever tried to jam a pair of boots into these tiny slots? Flat irons and mousse fit much nicer.
OR A WINE RACK
We can’t seem to keep our wine rack filled these days anyways.
EYE SHADOW AND BLUSH IN AN ICE CUBE TRAY
You can even arrange by color because that’s just how we roll now.
