The art of making yourself beautiful is not without its trials. Stained hands, mess on the carpet and keeping everything together are just a few of the hazards to overcome. That’s why we have put together a list of great ideas and hacks, which aim to relieve the stress of beauty mess.
Orange hands are definitely not a good look, but saving yourself from fake tan and hair dye stains is as easy as slipping on some disposable gloves – broschdirect.com has a great range for you to choose from. Even if your fake tan comes with an application mitt, always put gloves on underneath. We recommend that you also wear old clothes and place an old towel or large bin liner on the floor to catch any drips.
Top tip: When applying hair dye rub Vaseline around the hairline and on your ears to prevent it running onto your skin.
Have you ever wondered if your make-up brushes sprout legs at night and go for a walk about the house? Where do they go? Why don’t they come back?
If this is happening to you then it might be time to start organizing your dressing table. There are plenty of tutorials online but we love the idea of glass pots, filled with small, colorful beads with make up brushes standing upright in them, ready for you to grab.
Eyeshadows and blushers also like to go walkies, so take a look at this great DIY magnetic make up board tutorial. It’s really easy to make and keeps all your loose compacts in one place, as well as looking pretty. You could even make one with a large stand up frame, if you don’t fancy screwing it onto the wall.
A simple but effective method of storing beauty products is to create dividers in drawers. We love the idea of using vintage crockery, such as teacups, in a deep drawer to place jewellery and small make-up compacts. You could even keep the drawer open to display your pretty collection inside. Take a look around a local charity shop or car boot sale for some cheap pieces.
Let Them Eat Cake
A really simple and easy way to take the stress out of displaying your multitude of bottles and tubs is to place them on a pretty cake stand. Not only do you cleverly end up with a two-tiered shelf for all your beauty bits but the cake stand works great as a decorative feature in the room.
Organizing your beauty products and preventing mess doesn’t have to be a stressful task, but a chance to be creative. It can be as simple as throwing your nail varnish bottles into a large glass vase, making something from scratch or thrifting cute crockery to use as a practical display. There’s nothing left to do now but get in the bedroom and get to work!
