Makeup Mania

Here’s another round of tips on how to OCfy your makeup and de-clutter your bathroom or dresser! I found some acrylic cases in National Book Store that worked perfectly.

1.     Brochure Stand

This makes a really good container for flat or thin makeup cases like my face powders, eye shadows and blushes.  The transparent case makes makeup easy to find, get, and return afterwards.

2.     Desk Organizer

Originally meant for papers and pens, I use this to organize my makeup brushes and lip-glosses.  The place meant to hold paper is where I put sample sachets and oil blotters.

3.     Multi-Purpose Acrylic Stand

I was very excited when I found a perfect acrylic stand that had the same size holes as my lipsticks and small makeup tubes.

I always get a high over finding perfect containers for my things. Now that my makeup has been OCfied, getting ready for work or a night out is easier.

How to OCfy your Beauty Junk

Us girls, we love to buy makeup! In fact, we have a tendency to buy tooooo much make-up! 

There are 2 tell-tale signs if you are a makeup hoarder. One is if you wear makeup all the time and can’t see yourself going out of the house without it. Hmmm…I think my sister falls under this category.  And two, which is where I think I fall under, love to buy whatever my friends recommend, or see in magazines (I guess I can call this makeup envy) but they all eventually end up in makeup graveyard at the bottom of my bathroom drawer.

So I’ve developed a way to organize cosmetics so it doesn’t litter your bathroom or dresser, and it helps you save time when you prepare for work or a date!


What you’ll need:

Magnetic Board


Super Glue


1. Test the magnets on the magnetic board. Take note of the side that doesn’t stick.  Add super glue to this side.


2. Now glue that to the back of your makeup or cosmetic bottle or tube.


3. Mount the magnetic board to the wall closest to your bathroom or dresser mirror.
