Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

[ Edited ]

Whatever you call yourself... a makeup addict, skin care junkie, a sample hoarder - I am sure you have something to confess. Is it an out of control makeup stash, bins overflowing with samples or shelves filled with skincare? We want to hear it! Share with the community and let us know how you stay organized (pics welcome)

 

If you have tips for organizing out of control stashes we want to hear from you!

 

ps: I love organizing so love to hear what others have to say!

What a great purchase @trishavt!  

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

Fellow eyeshadow palettes addicts: any ideas of how to make your palettes more organized/easier to get to but I can't have anything on display. My four year old knows what they are and what they can do....yea it was bad. Right now I have them in the back of my closet in a wooden shoe divider thing.

i feel your pain!  I have a very curious, makeup loving, palette ruining toddler too (mine just turned two)Smiley Happy

*pre storage containers*

I've been storing them in clear plastic containers with a snap on lid.  Not pretty and display worthy but it keeps them safe (it's not like anyone really comes over to look at my vanity anyways lol).  I buy them from Target for $3-4Smiley Happy

 

ps: the Chocolate Bar palette I bought to replace the original one (also, pre storage containers) ended up as a semi-successful attempted snack.  

I bought the containers that day lol!!

But it smells so yummy, mom! She is too cute!!!!  @TamTam01

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

I am dying over her snacking on the Chocolate Bar. Smiley Very Happy @TamTam01

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

@TKLJ she was supposed

to be napping but no, she was snacking on the palette that earlier she swiped from my vanity and hid under her bed!  The funniest part is when I asked her if she got into Mommy's makeup, as she said, "no" a chunk of eyeshadow fell out😂 Thankfully, I could tell she didn't eat much lol.  She JUST turned two...I'm in trouble, right lol?!

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

OMG!!  Thank God it wasn't my eyeshadow palettes my four year old got into, but my brand new lipsticks and glosses and proceeded to "put" them on.  Without my husband noticing she had red and pink lipsticks on around her mouth and face.  Luckily coconut oil took it all off without much fuss (or crying).

oh trust me, she found my lipstick (YSL!!) before too😩 hubby sent me this pic and said, "so...I think she may have ruined a lipstick...it was in a gold tube."  I knew immediately which one too lol!

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

@TamTam01 she is too cute and could get away with just about anything!!!!! 

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

Nars and Clinique here.  I left the bag with the new stuff I had bought THAT DAY on a kitchen chair, well within reach.  The YSL and Burberry (or all, really) are up much higher than she can see OR climb at this point.

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

@waterbaby1981 I'm LOLing only because of course it was the day that you just bought them! How do they know?!! Haha.  We could start a thread with all of these makeup loving toddlers/kiddos pics/stories!

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

Aww @TamTam01 ! It looks like you have a little makeup addict in the making Smiley Wink

@TamTam01 Your daughter is sooooo cute!!! Smiley Happy With that face I wouldnt be bothered if she ruined any of my palettes, hehe 😊

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

@trishavt Hahah aww, thank you!

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

Oh my goodness @TamTam01!!  Just popped in to see your daughter's beautiful pictures!  Heart  What an adorable face....

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

@ZombieMetroAnt Awww, thank you! She really uses that adorableness to her advantage lol!  She is the most entertaining toddler we've ever had (she's our fourth- and last lol!!)!!

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

That's so funny. He ruined my chocolate bar too! And I also have a two year old daughter and she's my fourth and last! She knows what they are but hasn't got her hands on any. She only wants swatches if I'm looking at them and is insistent that she get swatches!

That's a good idea about the plastic with a snap I'm not sure how many I would need. It's all my urban decay palettes I have 37 of them. Yea ud is my fav!

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

@sonnydee. haha!! It must be the chocolate smell that's luring them in!  

My little one LOVES makeup swatches too!!  She'll hold out her hand like, "swatch, please!"

They come in a variety of designs and at first I bought some that had polka dots and what not on them but then I couldn't remember which palettes were in there lol.  So I decided to go back and get the clear ones.  I like that you can stack them and they don't take up much room.

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

My suggestion would be a lockable drawer unit like a filing cabinet. The container store has alot of them. 

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

@sinfully thanks for the idea though i dont think i can fit in my closet due to my shoe obsession. I thought about emptying a drawer in my dresser. It's heavy solid wood and antique so it's not easy to open
