5 Tips to Organize the Makeup Corner in your Room

5 Tips to Organize the Makeup Corner in your Room

***Collaborative post***

Your bedroom cosmetics vanity is most likely your favorite little nook in your bedroom, where you sit every morning and night. Making a makeup corner and setting up to your convenience is very important in order to enjoy your beauty routines and a hassle free day. Having all the products from skincare to makeup in one place is just perfect. Below are some of the organizing tips that will help you to create a beautiful makeup corner in your room.

Discard the useless stuff

In order to start, de-cluttering is the main step to do. Discard all of the makeup products that you no longer use or are expired. Go through all of your makeup, lipstick, and brushes first. Any that are broken or past their prime should be discarded. Look for the time restriction that is printed on the box. Changing your mascara, eye pencil and liner after a year will help you save from the harmful bacteria. Cosmetics can be bought again when you throw away all of your previous makeup products.

Sort and Separate

In order to organize the makeup corner, sort and separate your products. Make two or three portions and arrange them accordingly. You can buy small organizers online to put in all the skincare products and makeup separately. Sort your all makeup by category. It makes sense for many people to divide their regular makeup from that needed to create special event or nighttime looks. Preparative cosmetics should be kept together, primers and powders should be kept together, lipsticks should be kept together, eye shadows and palettes should be kept together, and so on. Keep brush holders; one for eye brushes and second for face brushes. 

Divide the Drawers

Cosmetics draw dividers will be your greatest friend if you have a large makeup collection and want to keep some products hidden. It also helps you to organize the makeup corner efficiently. There are several methods to arrange your cosmetic drawers; simply select one that works best for you based on the sort of makeup you use. This will help you decide whether to keep your cosmetics in a countertop organizer or in a drawer. Also, what you use every day should be visible at all times, while what you use less frequently should be tucked away in the background. Also create a separate rack or drawer solely for nail polishes, hand and foot, body care, and hair care. 

Light it up

Add a lit beauty mirror to convert your space into a genuine cosmetics station. Two sconces are used to frame a contemporary mirror. Just remember to keep an eye on the scale. You’ll be surprised at how much better your makeup looks when you apply it in excellent lighting. Not to mention how useful it is to have a magnifying mirror that can be adjusted to the ideal angle. 

Decorate a Cute Vanity

Add a little bit of warm tones to your vanity. You can get a wallpaper done on the vanity wall. Even if you have a little area, you may convert your cosmetic station into a lovely refuge by adding a few small accents. Decorate it with your favorite quotations, framed photos of family and friends, wall art, and an antique vanity clock. 


Get inventive with your vanity decor to really show off your decorating abilities. Buy cutesy stuff to organize the makeup corner. It also doesn’t have to be expensive since if you think outside the box, you may use commonplace materials. You can keep a cool ash tray or cake stands in order to add beauty and decency to your vanity.

Bella and Bear tweezer set

Bella and Bear tweezer set

Tweezers are probably not something you give a lot of thought to until you need them….as I always find anyway.

Bella and Bear have a beautiful tweezer set that is on hand to help with shaping your eye brows, the removal of that ingrown hair or even to get rid of the horrid splinter.

This set contains three tweezers and comes in a beautiful travel pouch so when out and about on your travels they can be kept safe.

Tweezers that are in the set are:

IMG_0626Slanted tweezersThese are the kind that we all know and love. The tweezers give great accuracy and precision making them fantastic for shaping our brows and keeping them looking their best!

Pointed tweezers – These are excellent for very fine hairs and ingrown hairs, also a fantastic tool for removing the dreaded splinters.

Straight tweezers – This tweezer is very handy for hair removal which is on a larger area of your skin. They are agile and accurate and very handy to have.

The pouch – The pouch I think is beautiful, it is very handy to have as it keeps all the tweezers safe and kept together and not only that it keeps them clean.

Our thoughts

These tweezers are strong and durable, they are a lovely colour unlike my old boring ones I have previously owned. With this set being complete and coming with a travel pouch I now have peace of mind when out and about on my travels that if needed then they are there clean and ready to use. Being a mum of boys who have a love of climbing trees and always getting splinters this set has come to the rescue and removed their splinters with ease on more than one occasion.

If this Bella and bear tweezer set is something you would like to own you can purchase the set here.

Hair she goes

The hair she goes hair removal kit


I have been using this hair she goes hair removal kit and I have been very impressed with it, this has been so easy to use and it has been very effective, it is a lovely size, you can tuck it away nicely in a draw or even keep it in your handbag if you wish, it comes beautifully presented in a lovely box so it can even be given as a lovely gift.

This product is chemical free, 100% natural and there has been no animal testing done, I have found this product to be a much nicer way to rid the facial hair than waxing, and much more quicker than using tweezers just on their own.

How to use :

Hold the hair she goes at each end, you then bend it and place it onto your face, keep it in the same position and slowly rotate the rubber handles, clockwise and anticlockwise, whilst gently moving the remover in an upwards motion.

That is all you have to do, and for those hard to reach places there is also a handy set of tweezers.

How it works

It works by gently plucking and removing the unwanted hair with the tightly sprung coil, it removes a few hairs at a time so it is much faster and much less painful than other ways I have tried.
I have not had any irritation from using this hair remover kit, I have found it quick and easy to use, I have found it great to be able to naturally remove my hair without the use off waxes and creams.

I wont lie, I did find this painful for the first few times I used it, but I find it much more comfortable to use now I have been using it more.


This kit retails at £36 but there is a sale on and they are currently going for £17.99, if this is something that you would like to buy you can find the kit here.

We have a 25% voucher code to offer all our readers that would like to purchase one of these kits, all you have to do is click on the link above and at the checkout add our unique code what is, Housetnr and you will get your 25% discount.
