Even though I don't wear much makeup, I do have specific items for that 'five-minute face.'
For decades, the frugal me would use little storage baskets or small decorative gift boxes with lids to store cosmetics. The problem with putting makeup in a box is digging to find what you need and forgetting about the items buried in the bottom.
A Five Drawer Stackable Transparent Makeup Organizer
After researching various products, I decided to get "A 5 Drawer Stackable, Transparent Makeup Organizer." The one I purchased on Amazon Canada is here. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the exact same one on Amazon USA; however, I did locate an even larger acrylic stackable makeup holder on Amazon USA here.
Be sure to check out the sizes. I have two stackable items that fit low enough against my mirror.
The Organizational Problem I Solved
To do my five-minute face, I use specific items and pulling each one out was taking up surface area on my vanity table.
I've wanted a better organizing system for cosmetics for years but was never willing to treat myself! I'm so glad I finally bought myself this bonus gift!
As you can see in the above photo, each cosmetic drawer is sorted according to what I use. Best of all, when I need something, I simply pull the drawer open, use the item, put it back, and close the drawer. Nothing has to go onto the vanity table, taking up space.
Here's How I Sorted My Own Personal Cosmetics Unit Based on What I Use:
- The top drawer has eye makeup
- The second drawer has lip related items, nail files, scissors, and clippers
- The third drawer has blush and brushes
- The fourth drawer has mascara and my favorite under-the-eye brightener.
- The fifth drawer holds some musk oil, some cream, and hair bands
