Welcome To My Make-Up Table (here’s how I organize my beauty products)

I’ve been wanting to do this post for a long time. I love seeing how everyone organizes their make-up and beauty products so I thought I’d share my set-up.

I have a nice table in my bedroom that holds most of my cosmetics. I have a lot of acrylic holders and bins to store things. I also found a nice light-up mirror on Amazon that has a base that holds more stuff. The palettes on the left are the ones I use everyday, I switch these out every few weeks.

The large boxes on the right hold my Ipsy bags and flat samples.

This month I am using the IT Cosmetics Superhero Luxe Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Palette, the New It Girl PaletteUrban Decay Afterdark Eyeshadow Palette and the Laura Geller Best Of Baked Palette. The rest of my palettes are stored on the right in the polka-dot bin.

I then organize my products by type…brow liners, eye liners, lipstick, etc. I try to watch expiration dates too so that I can toss old products.

As a beauty blogger who gets a lot of beauty boxes I tend to get loaded up on samples so I sort those into bins. One bin is for things I keep (which is way too much) and they other bin is for donating to my friends and family. I share a lot of products with my Aunt, MIL and mom. They are over 60 and have so much fun grabbing up my samples.

I also have an embarrassingly large collection of Julep nail polish that I sort on a stand by shades. It’s taken me about 2 years to collect this much and most of it was from the Mystery Boxes which was a great deal.

I keep Bath & Body Works products I use everyday on my dresser. I’m really love the French Collection from last Spring right now.

I keep my Lush craft boxes on the table behind my computer. You can see these in most of my YouTube videos! PS – Feel free to subscribe to my YouTube Channel, I do lots of beauty unboxings and hauls!

Finally I have a large bin that holds my newest beauty box products on my desk. These are the things that I need to review for this blog!

So there you have it! I have plans to get even more organized. Please do share your tips with me too.

Nail Polish Q & A Time!

Today I just got a brand new nail polish stand from Amazon and organized my polish collection.

I learned 2 things today 1) Organizing makes me really happy. 2) I clearly need more nail polish to fill my new organizer!

So let’s go. Nail Polish Q & A time.

How many bottles of nail polish do you own?

38 (although I may have a few more hidden around the house).

What’s your favorite shade of nail polish?

I prefer pinks, reds and corals.

What’s your LEAST favorite shade of nail polish?

Black or green, except maybe on Halloween.

What’s are your favorite brands of nail polish?

I just discovered Essie and am in love with their line. I also like OPI, Zoya and Orly.

Home or Salon?

Definitely home. I don’t like people working on my nails and I hate acrylic nails.

To glitter or not to glitter?

I love the idea of a little glitter but it’s so hard to remove I rarely use it.

What do you use to organize your polish?

I was using a basket but I just got the Home-it Nail Polish Holder Acrylic 5 Step Counter Display that Holds Up 60 Bottles.

Dream nails! If you could create one design what would it be?

Harry Potter nail art! http://www.lacqueredlawyer.com/2014/09/harry-potter.html?spref=pi. Maybe I’ll attempt this for Halloween.
