Bathroom Organise

Makeup Organisation

June 25, 2013

I have had an organising dilemma with my makeup for longer than I care to say. Every other month I would come up with a NEW and BETTER solution which, quite frankly was never really that much better than the last.

I had all but given up and resigned myself to the fact that I would be carting my makeup around in a travel beauty case forever when I had a vision. What if I used a caddy? Like I do for my cleaning gear. Only, smaller and way cuter.

B shift works so every other day I am doing my makeup in a different location around the house while he is sleeping. I would cart my ugly makeup case from one room to the next everyday. I would forget to grab moisturiser or hairspray or my perfume every single time and would end up waking him up going backwards and forwards anyway.

So, I searched and searched for the caddy of my dreams. It was tough let me tell you, but finally I found the PERFECT caddy! I wandered in to Howard’s Storage World one day on my lunch break (which, if you follow me on Instagram you will see happens quite regularly) and there it was. I almost squealed I was so excited!

Note: They don’t seem to have it on their website but it is with all the makeup storage if you go into a store.

I couldn’t wait to try it out, as soon as I got home I practically ran to the bathroom, grabbed my ugly old makeup case and dumped the contents onto the counter. I did a quick cull of all the old unused makeup and gave the rest a clean with a microfibre cloth.

The caddy is clear acrylic with a handle and has 9 different sections, they could not be more perfect in size. In the different sections I have:

  • Foundation and Concealer
  • Mineral Powder
  • Bronzer and Blush
  • Lips – stick, gloss and balm
  • Eyes – Eyeliners and Mascaras
  • Brushes
  • Bobby Pins and Hairbands
  • Moisturiser, Primer, Perfume, Deodorant, a Comb and Hairspray
  • Eye Shadow and a Nail Polish

It seriously holds everything I need to beautify myself for the day. I no longer forget to grab something because it is all there, and now I only sometimes wake B up (usually when I am squealing about my makeup caddy).

Can you tell I am super excited about my caddy? How do you keep your makeup? Have you ever squealed because you were so excited about a storage solution (I’m not the only crazy one, right? Guys?).
