Get your makeup drawer in top shape

If your makeup drawer looks exactly like how mine was before, having tons of makeup tossed together in one big mess then read on. Have fun!

Step 1: 
Dump everything
We want to begin by cleaning the drawer itself.  Pour all the contents of the drawer on an old towel you don't mind getting dirty.  Just be careful and watch out for potential spillage.

Step 2: 
It's Spring cleaning
If you haven't used this product for the past 2-3 months then it's time to let go of it. If they are unopened you can sell them, if they have been opened you should give them to a lucky friend.

Typical shelf-life of cosmetics:Loose powder, powder blush: 2 years
Foundation, lipstick: 1-1.5 years
Mattifier powder: 1 year 
Mascara: 3-6 months
Cream blush: 6 months-1 year
Concealer, eyeshadows, liners : 1 year

Step 3: 
Get rid of the broken
Still holding on to that shattered compact of your favorite blush/bronzer/eyeshadow?

Option A, transfer contents into a loose powder jar. Option B, shed a tear and throw it out-the goal of this activity is for you to be able to easily access makeup you actually use.

Step 4: 
Get organized
Get some plastic bins, wire boxes, cups or jars and makeup trays to keep your drawer in ship shape.  Pop by the local office supplies shop, they usually have great clear document drawers and organizers that can be used as cosmetic organizers.

Remember: Always keep your organizer fixed.  this will save you a lot of time when doing your makeup.  Plus it's always inspiring to see all your cosmetic products neat and organized.
