Cosmetic OrganizersCosmetics create clutter.  Think about it:  Lipsticks, mascaras, eye shadows, eye liners, foundations, concealers, blushers…the list seems almost endless.  Even if you only have one of each type of makeup, it’s easy to have cosmetic clutter.

Luckily there are a number of effective cosmetic organizers designed to help you conquer cosmetic clutter.  Here are three excellent examples:

  • The Extra-Large Three Piece Make Up Organizer features three separate units: an extra-large drawer as the base and a nine-compartment cosmetic tray on top, including a removable lipstick organizer with 12 slots.Extra Large Three Piece Make Up Organizer Image All items can be used together–the tray stacked on the drawer and the lipstick organizer nested inside– or they can be spread out separately to create maximum storage possibilities. When stacked, items are secure since units interlock with grooved edges.  All pieces are made of heavy duty acrylic and the clear surfaces make it extremely easy to always find any item quickly.
  • The Danielle Socialite Acrylic Organizer has seven top compartments and three large drawers in a 15-inch by 10.5-inch footprint.  One of the top compartments is a lipstick organizer designed to hold up to 12 lipsticks. The clear acrylic lets you identify and easily access all your makeup, and the steel frame ensures long-term durability.
  •  Metal mesh Makeup Carousels (available in a variety of colors) are double-decker spinning organizers  that feature six storage bins (three on each level) spinning around a center section on each side of the handle.  The center section is designed for storing long and slender supplies such as makeup brushes and nail files.

Answer: Vanity turntable organizer

Q.  Your recent blog about Lazy Susans got me thinking I’d like a revolving organizer for my vanity counter. Are there any with more & deeper compartments than the ones you wrote about?  I’d like something that can hold toiletries and haircare supplies so they won’t fall over.

A.  Depending on how many toiletries and supplies you want to keep on your vanity, there are two main types of vanity turntable organizers to choose from:

  • The clear Spinning Vanity Organizer has four small slots, four small sections, and one center section, all sized to hold hair and makeup accessories. The center section is 3-7/8 inches high by 3 inches in diameter; the adjoining four sections are 2-1/2 inches round and 2-7/8 inches high; and the four slots are 1-1/2 inches wide and deep, and 2 inches high.
  • Metal mesh Makeup Carousels (available in a variety of colors) are double-decker spinning organizers that feature six storage bins (three on each level) spinning around a center section on each side of the handle.  The center section is designed for storing long and slender supplies such as makeup brushes and nail files.

Cosmetic clutter isn’t pretty. All those little pots, tubes, palettes, applicators and other makeup necessities have a way of creeping like kudzu over every available bathroom counter and vanity surface.  How can beauty supplies be so unbeautiful?!

Quantity is often a contributing factor. Obviously it’s important to periodically weed out any cosmetics you don’t use on a regular basis.  But even if you’re good about weeding, you may still have enough makeup to create cosmetic clutter.  That’s why choosing the most effective counter-top and vanity organizers is crucial.

Here are three cosmetic organizers designed to maximize your make-up counter space:

  • The Acrylic Organizer with Drawers is a sleek space-saver offering five levels of storage in a one-square-foot unit. Acrylic Organizer with Drawers Image  Four clear drawers are topped by a clear compartment with a hinged lid that can be left open to accommodate taller products.
  • The Make-Up Carousel is a two-level Lazy Susan-style organizer that features six mesh storage bins in only a nine-inch-diameter footprint.  The rotating design provides easy access to all your cosmetic supplies.
  • A more portable option, the Bathroom Vanity Tray, has adjustable compartments.  Ten removable panels Bathroom Vanity Tray Imageallow you to create up to 25 custom storage pods, and the convenient carrying handles make the tray easy to transport.

​​Kitchen and Bathroom Organizing, Part 1: Counters

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinteresttumblr

Kitchens and bathrooms are alike in terms of their typical clutter-collecting areas: counters, cabinets and drawers. To reorganize and keep these areas clutter-free, start with the most visible sections. Here’s how to counter your counter clutter: 1. Clear off counters by moving all items temporarily onto trays or into baskets. Bathroom Storage Chest Image2. Put back only the things that are used at least daily, and use counter-top organizers for keeping those items handy. If your counter space is very limited, choose storage solutions designed to utilize vertical space, such as a doubledecker Lazy Susan, a make-up carousel or this clever Bathroom Storage Chest. 3. Weed whatever’s left so that you only have what you actually use, and relocate those items to drawers or cabinets. Next week:  Tips for organizing drawers.
