I hope you had a lovely weekend. Mine was kinda crazy the moment I took a look around my room and realized how messy it was. Stuff were piling on top of my desk, the night stand, and the vanity table. Yikes! I have assignments to do and I could not work in that condition. The mess blocked my qi. After analyzing the situation, I came to a conclusion that my makeup needed some sort of division. The cookie tins don't cut it anymore. I had a hard time finding things from them. I needed a centralize unit.
I decided right then and there that I would put the things I use frequently on the vanity table while the rest of the stuff is systematically stored in the drawer. I found a wooden tray that was small enough to fit the area near the wall and after sorting things out, I came up with a pile! I thought hard and fast and finally decided to use EnKore's lipstick organizer method to construct boxes with dividers. I didn't realize he already made something for the compacts when I did the measuring and cutting. I just winged it myself. All was well, back-breaking well, and now I have a much, much more organized environment within my vanity table.
Here are some pictures. My inner Martha Stewart is awesome but if you ask me, I would prefer someone to do it. This is some really meticulous work that I don't wish to do again anytime soon!
|All the essential things I use are on the table. It's amazing how 2 organizer boxes can make everything look nicer.|
Before, it was just a pile laying at that exact corner but spread through 1/3 of the table
|I reused a wine box and made dividers for my eye shadows, palettes, lipsticks, pigments, and even false lashes|
|Lipsticks, cream blushes, falsies, and blush pigments|
|Eye shadow and eyeshadow palettes|
|Paint pots, pigments, and mineral makeup|
|The whole drawer with other stuff.|
Before, it was full to the rim and I had a hard time pulling it out. Now, everything is fine!

That's all for today, folks! Have you unleashed your inner Martha recently?
