Organize Your Makeup: How to Organize Cosmetics in the Bathroom


Hi everyone, it’s Alejandra. And I am sitting
here inside my bathroom and I want to show you my new makeup setup that I have inside
my bathroom that’s super easy to use. It’s convenient, it’s accessible, it maximizes
space, and I am just loving it. So whenever I get ready in the morning, I’m
always sitting here on top of the toilet and I have my mirror right here and I bring my
makeup here to come and look in the mirror and just apply everything because this is
like the best lighting. This is where – yeah, the best lighting is in the bathroom. So instead of having to get up from here and
like go get each like makeup item and bring it back, I wanted everything – I want to bring
everything to me. So what I’ve done here is I have put all of my makeup in this little
slim cart that just hangs out on the side of the wall right here. It’s only about six
inches wide which means it’s not going to take up all of this like a walking space right
here in the bathroom. So I love it. It’s on wheels and all I can do is just like when
it’s time to get ready and do my makeup, I just bring it over here and then I just wheel
it over, and it’s super convenient because everything just comes with you and you have
everything right there. All I did here was I got these little acrylic
organizers. There are four sections inside of this one container and I just got two of
them. They fit perfectly inside. And I’m putting all of my brushes, my liners, my lipsticks,
my tweezers, my scissors, anything that’s like small and tall, I’m putting inside of
here. And when I got these, I immediately thought of those little pebbles or those little
rocks that you see at Sephora. Like when you go to Sephora, they have all the makeup brushes
and they’re all inside these nice pebbles that keep it from falling over and stuff. And so, I went online to try and look for
them and they’re kind of expensive and they’re hard to find. And so, I was trying to think
like what else can I do without having to go out and buy something else? So I decided
to try using rice just like rice from the pantry. I tried putting it inside and then
I put everything inside of it and then I realized that I should probably rinse the rise because
a lot of the grains were kind of – like it was kind of a powdery substance was coming
out. So I rinsed the rice. I let it dry overnight and then I put it inside here and then I put
everything like inside of each section and it’s working wonderfully. None of them was
like the powder is not getting on any other cosmetics or anything. So I was quite pleased
about that. Over here, I have all of my bronzers, concealers,
foundations, lotion here, eye makeup remover here, Q-tips here, and then on the side right
here, I mounted a magnetic strip just like this. This is from The Container Store. It
comes in different colors. I just mounted it with double size-sided mounting tape and
then I put all of my bobby pins on these little magnets because these things are magnetic
so you can just go like that. And it’s an easy way to store your bobby pins and they’re
super accessible and they now have a home. And then down here, I found these little Sterilite
organizers. You can just get this at Target, Wal-Mart, or maybe even Dollar Store. But
they fit perfectly inside of here when you put them vertically just like that. So I use
these organizers for my blush, my eye shadow. This is kind of just like an open section.
I just have a little divider in place to kind of hold these bins over here so they don’t
slide over here. And then I have more eye shadow down there. And then at the very bottom, it’s where I
have all of my travel cosmetics and toiletries. So there is like packets of shampoo, conditioner,
and then there is like little Shout removers, there is body wash and then there is hairspray,
hair gel and stuff. And I’m still using these little containers down here just like that
because they fit so nicely. And then I just took my label marker and I put a clear label
on the very back of the bin so I know exactly what goes where. OK. And then wrapping around the cart, I wanted
a place to put all of my claws for when I’m doing my hair that would be out of the way
and it would be easy to access, easy to put away because these things – I feel like if
you don’t store them correctly, they might break because they’re so delicate and fragile
and stuff. So all I did was wrap bungee cord. I just
took colored bungee cord that I got from, I think it was G Street Fabrics. That’s the
only place that sells colored bungee cord other than like black which you can only get
at Home Depot. So I took bungee cord, wrapped it around really nice and tightly and then
I put all the claws right there. And then on the side of the cart, I think
this is the coolest idea out of everything. I took leftover door pockets that I had to
cut down in my last house just like cut them and I kind of just clipped them to the side
of the cart. The cart had like a little cover right here to kind of – I don’t know had like
a wall cover right here to kind of – I don’t know what the cover is for, just to over it.
But I just took the cover off and I took a binder clip just like this from my office,
and I clipped it, the door pockets just like that. So now, they’re not going to fall down. And then I put bungee cord in the middle of
it so it will just hold it in place. And I thought that was really creative because now
I have a place for all of my pony tail holders and all of my elastic headbands. And then
of course, I just put a little label on the very front so I know what goes in and what
section. And then I did the same thing on the other
side. You can’t really see it here but I just did the same thing for some of my larger headbands
like some of – like these ones that you wash your face. You hold your hair back to wash
your face. And then down here is like your standard, typical, regular headbands just
like that. But I just love this cart. I love how I can just bring everything to me instead
of having to get up and go get everything and bring it back. It’s just – it’s all together
and it’s easy to access. And I kind of feel like when I was setting
it up like you know when you go to a nail salon and you’re getting a pedicure and the
nail technician just like rolls a cart over to your station and they have everything right
there. Everything is convenient and easy to access and stuff. I kind of feel like it was
the same setup. So I don’t know. Yeah, it’s like the same setup. So anyways, I hope this video was helpful.
When you’re organizing your cosmetics, what you want to do is group like with like. So
you can go to one section to grab one category of items and yeah, just make everything easy
to access. So I hope this video was helpful. If you want

I’ll see you soon. Bye! 1
