Q: What are some ways to store all my products so that they are easily accessible, protected from light and heat, and looks somewhat neat and orderly?
Here's what I've started to do after my husband threatened to throw it all away! We all get about a million free cosmetic bags with our gift with purchases (GWPs) so, I have one that goes in my purse, one that sits in my car, one that is in the bathroom, and then on my vanity table. Then I have about four more - one with all lipsticks and glosses, one with eye shadows, one with pencils and one with foundations and other necessities. Then, when I want to switch what is in my car or in my purse, I just pull the necessary stuff from the cosmetic bags and put the others away. And, probably every year, I throw out some of the old stuff.
Another idea is to get a functional, plastic set of stackable drawers, which is nice for things like lipstick, gloss, pencils, and bodycare items. It looks relatively neat, and is a great clutter-buster. If you get the clear kind, you can see everything inside, and you could even label the fronts with what the contents are.
If you organize everything in a fun way, you could even treat it like shopping for new makeup every time you choose your products for the day!
