I always look at boxes, baskets, or anything that could become a storage box. It's always hard to stay neat and organized when it comes to the makeup and bathroom products. What I hate more, is having a whole bunch of stuff on top of my vanity. So, I found this beautiful box/basket for $10 at Ross.
I love that it has a lid too. This what I did with it.
I took all the things I use on a daily basis and put it inside. I have Huggies Natural wipes that I use to wipe off makeup, wipe my vanity, or even spot clean my brushes. They are hypoallergenic and have aloe and vitamin E in them. Then I have my foundation, concealer, bronzer, foundation brush, eye/crease brush, and my 2 favorite Mac palettes. For my everyday routine this is perfect. I'm not looking through my drawers and pulling stuff I don't need out, making more of a mess.
I think what I like more, is it has cut down on the time it takes me to get ready. Everything is right there and it looks neat.
How is your makeup area set up? What's your favorite storage item?
