Tips & Tricks To Arrange Your Makeup Products

Which girl doesn’t like makeup? They are love! The collection of different brands of makeup is every girl’s hobby. But organizing them is not that easy. A shabby makeup kit creates a lot of confusion. This can make it tricky for you to access the items as and when required.  

Some makeup items’ casings or bottles are fragile. Keeping them messy can lead to breakage or spillage. When they are arranged systematically, these issues can be avoided. Hence, the shelf life of these products increases and they can be easily accessed. 

But how to keep them organized? Here’s the solution! 

Following are the tips that will give you an idea of how makeup products can be arranged systematically. 

1. Throw Away Expired Products  

The first thing you should do is check the product's manufactured year and the shelf life. If any of these products are expired, chuck out all of them. Avoid using expired or spoilt makeup products as they can cause allergies and harm your skin tone, causing skin diseases. 

2. Drawers, Boxes Or Pouches For Storage 

Makeup must be kept in a dark and cold place, away from sunlight and dust. Drawers have ample space to store all the makeup products. Make various sections in the drawer where different makeup items can be kept. 

Drawers protect these products from specks of dust and sunlight and keep them cool. Thus, spoilage of these products can be prevented. 

In case, you do not have a drawer, store makeup products in wooden or plastic boxes as they shield them from dust. If such boxes are not available, then use pouches or pencil cases to store these products. Pill Boxes can be used to store eyelashes. 

3. Labelling Benefits 

Makeup products stored in boxes or pouches without labelling can create confusion. For example, if we are in a hurry and want a particular coloured lipstick, we will have to check every box or pouch to find it. This time-consuming process can cause irritation.   

Labelled boxes and pouches as per the products can be time saving and easily accessible.  

4. Brushes In A Holder 

Different makeup brushes are available for eyes, lip and face makeup. These brushes can be stowed in a holder that has different sections to keep them separate. Make sure to regularly wash your makeup brushes and sponges to avoid any bacterial infection or allergies. 

5. Group Items As Per Their Brand, Use and Colour 

Makeup products should be grouped into any of these three sections: 

1. Brand 

2. Colour 

3. Use 

Lipsticks and Nail Paints should be stored as per their colour making it easy for you to reach them. Makeup products like pallets, blushes, and foundations can be stored together as per their brand. 

6. Safety While Travelling 

While travelling, wrap your fragile makeup products like compact, with bubble wraps and cushion them well to avoid breakage or spillage. Pack them systematically, so they take up less space in your bag.

A Guide To Keep Your Apartment Clean

In this hustle-bustle lifestyle, we often neglect cleaning the house. An uncleaned and dirty house becomes an abode for insets and pests. Such infiltrated house becomes a centre of contagious health issues, and people living in such a house can become prone to diseases.  

Hence, cleaning your house is essential. But, at times, it is difficult to decide where to start the cleaning process. The work appears stressful and sometimes even impossible.   

So, here is a detailed guide that will surely assist you in keeping your house squeaky clean.  

1. Buy Only Essential Items 

First and foremost, buy only essential items you need at present or the items that will go out of stock. Sometimes, we end up buying unnecessary stuff because either they are sold for free or at a discounted price. Buying extra items often leads to eating up more space. It makes the cleaning process harder. The lesser the things are present, the lesser the space is taken, making the cleaning process easier. 

2. Scheduling The Cleaning Process 

Make a detailed schedule for a week, dedicating on what day you will clean which room first. It makes the process easy and lessens the confusion about where to begin. For example, you can plan to clean the dirtiest room on the day when you have the maximum free time.   

3. Items That Are Unused or Unwanted 

Bifurcate unused or ruined and broken items from the essential ones. Chuck out the broken ones. Store unused items and those that may be required in the future. Donate or sell all the unwanted or extra items. Collect them in a bag and keep them aside.  

4. Focus on Hygiene 

Dust and rotten goods contaminate your house. Try maintaining as much hygiene as possible at home. Make sure to clean your bed every day. Frequently change the covers. Scrub out any dirt on the kitchen platforms. Throw out stale or rotten food and clean your fridge. Wash the dishes with the best disinfectant dishwashing liquid.   

Put all the unwashed clothes in a washing machine and wash them with warm water and laundry detergent or sanitiser. Clear all the water that must have cumulated near plants. Dust off the cobwebs and sweep the house floor with the disinfectant floor cleaning liquids. 

A hygiene home keeps the pests away and protects you and your family from diseases. Spray air fresheners to make the house smell better. A clean house emits positive vibes at all times and even reduces stress levels.  

5. Well Organized 

Once you start cleaning and arranging the items, keep them where they belong. It makes it easy for you to access them. Do not fold wet clothes to avoid the growth of mould or mildew between the folds.   

6. Regular Cleaning Plan 

Frequently cleaning the house makes the cleaning procedure easy. Regularly dusting and sweeping will give no chance for cobwebs to develop and keep the pests away.
