Spring Cleaning and Organizing Series – Makeup Organization


Make up organization post might make you feel like oh she has tons of makeup and will do a detailed paragraph on purging and would share fancy pictures of a girly vanity with acrylic organizers. Well if that is what you are expecting I am so sorry folks this momma aint got no fancy vanity or oodles of makeup. Then why do a post you may ask. Well I have a few tips up my sleeve and thought to share the same with you all.

Let us go in pointers style what say?

What I did and why

  • I streamlined regularly used products including brushes and placed them in my pouch
  • This ensured I had no nervous breakdown doing my make up in 5 minutes while having my toddler tugging on to my legs and a hubby asking,” Are you ready?”
  • The little drawer could do with some drawer organizer and I opted for an empty tissue box as the bottom tier and a chocolate box with lid as the top tier


  • Stacking it up ensured maximization of space
  • The bottom empty tissue box tier had my rarely used products as you can see in the image
  • The upper tier with lid had my make up brushes with an elf eye-shadow palette, lip balm etc.
  • My brushes are put in enclosed boxes to prevent dust accumulation and may I say I have seen a reduction in my acne after doing that
  • I used a decorative candle used for Diwali (that already served its purpose) to keep my regularly used ear rings.

The final look of the drawer is as such.


Now, I need to find out where my eye cream is and place it here and yes, as usual Shaurya is the suspect.

Have a nice day !
