Oraganization for your makeup room...

This is my makeup area...I am very fortunate that I have a quiet room all to myslef (unless company arrives!). The white shelf is a scrapbooking materials organizer I got at Micheals..it was $89.99 and I had a 40% off coupon, so I scored it for $50! My desk is just a writing desk...and the other pieces are just assorted furniture I picked up at yard sales or off the side of the road!

These plastic bins came from Walmart..super cheap and great for holding things I dont need out in front all the time. Misc. pencils-liners, hair clips, chapstick, mascaras...etc.

An office organizer that I keep things I use everyday in. My favorite mascaras, concealer, lip gloss...you get the idea.

Another office organizer I got at Walmart...palettes fit perfectly in there! Its supposed to be a letter holder, but hey...all I get is junk mail anyway! My mineralized skin finishes and blushes fit perfectly along the bottom!

Brishes are always a little messy...my most important jar in the clear one..it holds my dirty brushes. So after I am done with my makeup - but in a rush and cant clean my brushes..I just plop them in my clear cup and my desk looks clean!

I get asked about this baby a lot! LOL! Here is how I have it organized...

Chromacakes...theatre makeup...sequins...nail polish and bottles are on top. Then I have my MAC pigments and glitters all lined up (arent they pretty?). ALso I have my frequently used Paint pots, placed upside down so I can easily see what they are.

Then I have some skincare...lotions..empty jars, and frequently used lipsticks. Nest are loose pigments that arent MAC (NYX, Taylor Made Minerals, ets.)..Loreal HIP, and translucent powders. Ribbon and assorted palettes.

Even the top of this baby gets used! LOL! Glues, misters...removers, illuminators...etc. go here. And my jar of feathers! LOL!
