Messed-Up Makeup Boxes? Steps to Organize Products Safely

If you love your makeup, then you might be familiar with how important it is to organize your stash safely. 


And let’s be honest, it is heartbreaking to see those broken lipsticks and smudged eyeshadow palettes.


Plus, if you own tons of makeup, there’s a good chance that you might end up shoving your stash under the sink or throwing everything in boxes, especially if you are in a hurry.


Thus, the messed up makeup boxes. 


But that’s really not the way to store your precious products. 


Organizing your makeup products not only prolong their shelf life but also make it easier for you to find whatever you need without messing up your entire room.


That’s the dream. Right?


So, this weekend, tap into your organizational skills and save your lipsticks, eyeshadow palettes, and perfumes from getting messed up.


Keep reading to learn how. 


  • Step 1: Segregation and Categorization


The first and probably the most important step to store your makeup is to get rid of the stuff you don’t use or need anymore. Thus, before you even start organizing your makeup products, start sorting everything out. 


The best way to do that is to make two separate piles. One for expired products and the other for the unused ones you don’t want or need. 


You should know that using expired makeup products might end up leaving you with various skin problems such as acne and rashes. And keeping them with you might increase the chances of you accidentally using them.


After you’ve decided what products you want to keep, start putting them under different categories. You need to separate your skincare products from your makeup products to find adequate storing space for them. You can also bring in subcategories, depending upon the number of products you own. For instance, separate your lip balms from your lipstick pile. 


  • Step 2: Start organizing and packing


Now that your products are all categorized and sorted, start organizing them in your vanity. Make sure you have your daily-use products upfront so that you can use them easily. 


Use transparent jars and boxes so that you know what goes where. Refrain from storing your makeup products in your bathroom, as the moisture can easily make them go bad. 


Store all your lipsticks in a cool, dry place to prolong their shelf life. And use air-tight containers for your perfumes to ensure their freshness and durability. 


Try to use shelves and racks to keep your makeup products from getting messed up. If you don’t have racks or shelves in your vanity, you can always use different makeup bags to keep your products safe. You can also use different labels so that you don’t have to open all bags at once. 


Also, you need to keep in mind that if you have kids running around your home, you need to keep your makeup products away from their sight.


Makeup can be toxic for kids. You can use child-resistant packaging to store your lipsticks, foundations, concealers, and powder for extra protection. This is because even if your little ones find a way to get their hands on your makeup products, they won’t be able to open these bags easily. 


  • Step 3: Pay extra attention to the tools


According to industry experts, people seldom pay heed to their makeup tools. But that’s not good. You need to know that your makeup brush and sponge are porous, making them an easy target for bacteria, oil, and dirt. 


So, make sure you clean your makeup brushes and sponges after every use. And before you put them in their boxes, make sure they are dried up properly to steer clear of moisture and bacterial growth. 


Try to keep your makeup tools such as brushes, sponges, and eyelash curlers in air-tight boxes to minimize exposure to moisture. 


In the end,


Keeping makeup products safe can be challenging but can be simplified with a few easy steps. So, use the steps mentioned above, and you won’t have to worry about messed-up makeup boxes again.
