Makeup Organization (My Second Attempt!)

Awhile ago, I did a post on makeup organization back in June. I attempted to organize my makeup-I did organize things into categories, but; it ended up looking even more cluttered than before. This is my second attempt at organizing and I must say, I'm proud of the results. Here is the before and after! *Click the pics to enlarge. *


BEFORE


Things are categorized, but it's still cluttered...



AFTER






My new makeup set up! I love it :-)




My bathroom sink area looks ten times better and I can find things a whole LOT better! I bought a large 3 drawer Sterilite container from Target to store all of my makeup, it cost $13.99... it's one of my better purchases this year.


I organized the first drawer with foundation, powder, concealer, brows and eyelash stuff. The second drawer is full of stray eyeshadow quads and palettes and the third drawer has blushes, mascaras, eyeliners, pigments and eye bases. On top, are my eyeshadow, concealer and blush palettes and the containers on the right contain lipsticks and glosses...the containers on the left contain brushes and lip liners.


Do you have a system for makeup organizing?

Looks good. I like how everything is laid out so you can just pull what you'd need for a job.
Ms. Viva Glam said…
Thanks, Lynnie... I finally got it together.
Good job with the 2nd attempt. The 1st attempt wasn't a total loss. At least you were able to separate things.

Those sterilite products really come in handy. I have several of them in different sizes. I usually get them around August when they're on sale for all of the college kids. Ha ha! Plus they come in different colors. It seems like you can only find white during the rest of the year. I purchased most of mine from Wal-Mart, but I did get a few of them from Target. I've also found cute ones in the children's furniture section of Target and Walmart.

For my palettes, I've found that using DVD towers has worked great for organization. :-)
Ms. Viva Glam said…
Thanks, LeRenda... yeah, the 1st attempt was a mess.

The dvd tower is a good idea! I would love to see pics of your makeup collection :-)

How I Refurbished my Louis Vuitton Speedy...

I bought an authentic preloved Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy bag a few months back. While I was so excited to finally get the bag and wear it, I realized (at that time of buying and when I received it) that the bag had some wear on it that could use some fixing up. After searching online, I found a blogger, Lollipuff, who posted an article on how to refurbish LV bags.

Based on the recommendations in the post, I used the following products: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, Blue Magic Metal Polish cream (tube) and Cadillac Boot and Shine leather conditioner. I also used laundry detergent and baby wipes. All of the products used can be used on any bag to spruce it up. Read on for the deets, to see how you can spruce up your handbag!

At first glance, the bag had some sheen on the exterior. Most of the brass fixtures had green tarnishing (which happens with aging of brass). The leather handles were dull. The bag had lost some of its shape. The inside was the kicker! The red interior was terrib…

Alexandra Butler's A Beautiful Face 101 :DC Makeup Class (Recap)!

This past Sunday, I had the pleasure of attending Alexandra Butler's A Beautiful Face makeup class. I met Alexandra the first time at The NYC Makeup show last May; before then I had been following her work since an interview she did on Erin Bailey's (Scandalous Beauty) beauty blog.


Alex is a beautiful and amazingly talented freelance makeup artist who currently lives in Atlanta. She worked for Mac for a while and now she's professionally freelancing on her own. She has all kinds of clients from your every day women to celebrity clients. She has done makeup for cast members from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta and also Real Housewives of Atlanta TV shows. I've always admired her flawless face makeup, especially the way she sculpts and contours or as she would say "snatched up your face."


Alex has been hosting makeup shows in several states and she made her way to DC this past Sunday, I couldn't wait (I registered back in February)! I loved the class so much, I r…
