In honor of back to school season, we thought it would be fun to share some insights from a few of our favorite savvy students—the girls over at Dormify. This week, they’ve tapped into their legion of style advisors to give us tips on long-lasting makeup, the best way to organize your products, and how to look bright-eyed after a long night.
At a certain point, instead of just keeping all your products stored in various cosmetics bags, it’s time to give your makeup storage a makeover. Here are some pieces of advice from our style advisors on how to organize all your beauty goodies:
- Instead of hiding your things away, use them as decor in your bathroom or on your vanity. Keep brushes in a short clear vase (bristles facing up up) and fill it with sand, sequins, or little pebbles (depending on the look you want).
- Graduate to a fashion-forward case like this ikat one. If you travel a lot, try something that packs easily and can hang on the back of a door.
- If you keep your products in drawers, invest in drawer organizers or even kitchen utensil organizers to keep things neat. If you’re using something that’s clear, think about lining the bottom of the drawers with fun patterned paper, photos, or magazine images for a more stylish look.
- Think outside the cosmetics case. This Little Black Dress Organizer is great for storing your makeup because you can easily see everything. A similar idea is using an over-the-door shoe organizer to store larger products and hair tools.
