Organize Your World Part 1: Makeup

For as long as I can remember, I have been obsessed with organizing (thanks to the OCD gene was passed down to me from my father).  His shoes were always neatly lined up at the foot of his perfectly made bed, while his color coded t-shirts were tightly rolled to fit into drawers.  I’d consider this a blessing and a curse, but luckily for me, I was never a kid who got in trouble for not cleaning her room.  I may not be able to function unless my habitat is immaculate, and living with me may be a nightmare if you are the least bit messy, but I certainly have a knack for making a lot of “stuff” fit in any size space.   I figured this out fairly quickly as a young girl, when I got my first job just so I could buy my own clothes and shoes.  Then the bag obsession followed and the need to accessorize felt like a matter of life or death.  Soon after, I discovered makeup and before I knew it, I had created little living arrangements for all the belongings that represented my hard work and joy.

Living with my parents and keeping all my things in my bedroom was good practice for college, where I had already mastered the dorm room life well before I got there.  Fast forward to adulthood in my small one-bedroom apartment, and it is safe to say I am the guru of organizing your things.  My friends laugh at me and tell me that my place looks like a showroom, but when you have little closet space, you have no choice but to make your own!

Pictured above is my makeshift vanity area in a small corner of my bedroom.  As you can see,  I have a decent collection of makeup/brushes and storage is limited.  Thanks to Amazon, you can support your habit at an affordable price and make your small living area, vanity, beauty room, bathroom (or whatever area you choose) look fabulous and neat!
