3 Tips for Using Cosmetic Organizers Wisely

If you're a woman with a bit of a makeup obsession - you're certainly not alone in looking for helpful cosmetics organizers.

With all the colors and options in makeup today, it's difficult to keep track of everything you own without some sort of organization system. However not all cosmetic organizers are alike.

In order to make the most of your makeup purchases - you need to keep in mind three things visibility, space, and versatility. Once you have addressed these concerns, you can begin to look more beautiful than ever.

Choose a Case That Lets You See

Cosmetic organizers that are clear or translucent tend to be easier to use. Not only do they let you see exactly what kinds of makeup you own - but they can also help you quickly decide whether or not you need to go shopping for something you don't have.

Clear - colorless organizers are best. This way, you can look inside, see if you have that green eyeliner you want to use and then open the case to use it.

You will also be able to get ideas for your makeup application before you even start applying since all of your choices will be at your fingertips.

The Case Needs Plenty of Space

Since makeup tends to be something you need to replace after a while - cosmetic organizers need to be able to accommodate all of your makeup and then some.

When you have too many items crammed into a smaller space, it's hard to see what you have and what you don't have.

Try to choose a case with additional room to grow in, just in case you want to carry other items in the case when you travel, like skin care products, makeup remover, additional tools, etc.

Organizers with Organizing Accessories

The best cosmetic organizers will have trays and containers that help you organize your makeup into categories. For example - you might have a tray or a container that can hold all of your eyeliners and mascara, while another tray holds your lip gloss and lipsticks.

This separation helps you find what you need immediately, while also leaving larger spaces for foundations, powders, and blush.

If you can find a case with trays and spaces that adjust as your makeup collection changes, that's all the better.

Other tips to consider:
  • Hard cases are better at protecting your makeup from breaking.
  • Choose a case with a built in mirror for on the go touchups.
  • Consider options with smaller travel cases to help you separate your everyday makeup from your special occasion pieces.
Cosmetic organizers are built to help you find what you need to make yourself feel beautiful. Though every woman is different, you still need a system that works for you and doesn't make you feel stressed at the same time.
