How To Organize Your Beauty Products—And Your Bathroom
Organizing your beauty products isn't the easiest thing in the world. In fact, it's really hard. So we consulted an expert for some advice.
LA Closet Design is headed up by organizational genius Lisa Adams (she's more of a genius/wizard hybrid, if you ask me). Adams has made the rounds with several celeb clients, including Eddie Murphy, Carmen Electra, Kris Jenner, Kendall & Kylie Jenner, Kyle Richards, Whitney Port, Jillian Michaels, Kara Dioguardi and Jewel. In case you don't get your fill of Lisa on our site, watch her in a new show called Million Dollar Closets that airs on HGTV starting June 12th.
Here are Lisa's pro tips around all of that bathroom clutter. Trust me—you'd have never thought of any of these on your own. Get ready to be wow'ed and organized.
"A cosmetic refrigerator! In this cabinet, wellness and beauty products, as well as beverages, are perfectly chilled and organized. Order it through my site, Laclosetdesign.com," says Adams.
A ladder can create more towel hanging space and looks good:
"I love this hair tool station cabinet! This keeps all of your hair tools out of sight, and the cords are managed by tucking them behind the cabinet with a built-in outlet."
"Floating shelves are perfect for adding more space for organization, and for giving your bathroom a "designer" look."
"Sometimes you have to think behind the box! This medicine cabinet became more efficient after it was adhered with a sheet of precut galvanized steel to its interior. Magnetic hooks now hold scissors and a mirror, and small plastic cups with magnetic bottoms house small necessities, such as rubber bands and hair clips."
"Divide and conquer your makeup! Drawers in the bathroom tend to be messy, unorganized catch-alls for many different containers and inserts. Use custom or expandable cosmetic drawer inserts that fit into the drawer to take the place of bulky cosmetic bags. Different size compartments will organize lipstick, blush and eye shadow. As you organize your make-up, be sure to throw away anything that smells or is expired. Old make-up contains bacteria that can irritate your skin."
