Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

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!

@misscg I'm digging those wall shelves! I think that's a great idea. But like you said, heat Smiley Sad Living in So Cal I'm afraid things would melt PLUS I'm always worried about earthquakes. I can just see a tremor sending all my makeup flying.

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

Ohhhh wow!!! Pencil holders?

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

Acrylic eyeliner holder from Amazon.  It has one row that is wide for larger pencils and liquid eyeliner.

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

Oh cool! Thx! Would probably like that for the liquids and bigger pencils. Those are just in a normal holder (like pencil holder) at the moment. My regular size pencils are in a cosmo cube Smiley Happy

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

OMG. I want to live here. @LeLeo

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

me too @fairlywell! it's so organized!

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

This is a fabulous set up!   Love it!  ❤️  @LeLeo

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

This kind of setup is exactly why I want to knock out the dividing wall between my bathroom and the walk-in closet to the guest bedroom.  Smiley Wink  It'd be nice to have a space totally dedicated to my makeup that is NOT in a bathroom (my collection is starting to take over the downstairs bathroom now).

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. 

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

*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!!

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

@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

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

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).
