Organization for the chronically disorganized: MelodySusie and Zen Cosmetics

I had to laugh when I found out that the Beauty Spotlight Team’s special post was on organization…as my blogging partner Marcia can tell you, I am not exactly the poster girl for having my stuff – or my life! – in order. However, there are two organizational systems that I swear by for organizing my makeup.

MelodySusie Large Capacity Cosmetic Organizer

First is my MelodySusie heavy-duty acrylic Cosmetics Organizer.  It has four drawers and two separate compartmentalized pieces. It’s sturdy, easy to clean, and has 24 different compartments. I can house all of my latest favorite cosmetic items and always have them right in front of me so I’m not digging through bags or larger drawers looking for something. Each drawer has a removable black mesh padding that keeps items in their place so they aren’t slipping and sliding around.

The main compartment holds my gel eyeliners, MAC Paint Pots, and blushes.

The lower drawer comes with a removable unit that has 10 compartments. I actually put this one on the top of the main unit and use it to hold lipsticks, highlighters, bronzers, eye products like mascara, brow gel, and my eyelash curler, plus various mixing mediums.

The third piece, which is the upper box that is typically placed on top of the main unit, also has ten compartments and is tall enough to hold brushes. I put this one on the side and use it for brushes, primer, concealer, foundations, and lip glosses.

I love my MelodySusie organizer because it’s super functional, sturdy, and it holds a ton of stuff in an organized manner that doesn’t come naturally to me. You can find it on Amazon.com.

My second favorite cosmetics organizer is my Zen Cosmetics Quirky Makeup Organizer. Marcia gifted me this, probably because she knows how disorganized I am!!  This cute little organizer is a total blessing for me.  It’s small but has a mighty big organizational punch.

The silicone base is removable, and it has small openings that hold onto scissors, tweezers, eyeliners, and brushes.  Just squeeze the item in and the Quirky organizer holds it straight up, ready for you to grab, use, then squeeze back in so easy. The spaces expand so they even hold my Doll10 BlendSmart Rotating Foundation Brush.

I put my brushes on one end, my eyeliner pencils in the middle, and my tools like scissors and tweezers on the other end. I can’t believe how much stuff this awesome organizer holds – I keep squeezing more in and can always seem to find room for just one more thing.

I need help getting organized and the MelodySusie Large Capacity Cosmetics Organizer and Zen Cosmetics Quirky Makeup Organizer are life savers for me. If you are as chronically disorganized as I am, I hope you will check out these two products. I may be disorganized, but that feeling I get when I am actually organized is wonderful! – Lisa
