Answer this question. On a scale of 1 to crazy, how much of a beauty hoarder are you? With a new product dropping every other day and Instagram and YouTube urging you to buy new finds, every girl is guilty of buying one (or 100) too many products. The result? Products that lay forgotten and abandoned, confusion when you are trying to do your morning routine in a hurry and not to mention products that expire without you hav* made full use of it!

If you are a Netflix fan, you know the popular show by Marie Kondo who encourages you to keep only the things that spark happiness in you. We took inspiration and decided to clean out, organise and declutter our beauty cabinets and we tell you how you can do it too!

There are easy ways you can organise your beauty shelf so that your mornings are streamlined and you are not confusedly searching for that highlighter that you got last month.

That eyeliner you got from your trip abroad or that lipstick that your bae gave you (but you secretly don’t like the colour), if you have not used a product in a long while, and you don’t miss it, then it had better make its way out.

Organise into makeup categories
 

Organise into makeup categories

Start by laying out all the makeup you have. Organise them into categories. Get clear acrylic boxes and put all your face brushes into one, all your eye brushes into another and all your blushes into one… you get the idea. This way, when you want your face products, all you have to do is pull out your container dedicated to foundations and concealers and you have it all in one place!

Keep the ones you use frequently nearest to you or at the top

Makeup like foundation, concealer and powder and tools like brushes are the ones you use first and most often. So keep them in the front, so you don’t have difficulty reaching for them in the mornings. Whenever possible keep products upright so choosing and picking the shade or colour you want becomes easier.
