Spring Cleaning: Organizing Your Beauty Station

orgbeautystation4

Spring is here! We all seem to associate this season with cleaning- why? Warmer weather and a fresh new feel gives us the idea to clean up after a long winter. When was the last time you went through your makeup drawers and organized? We came up with a few ideas to help you organize your beauty station this Spring!

Out with the Old

First things first, toss or donate! Go through your beauty supplies and ask yourself, is this expired or will I ever use this? (Find out when products expire, blog link here). In the effort to organize and declutter simple get rid of products that you no longer need, want, use, or like.

Compartmentalize!

It is time to separate and conquer! Purchase clear plastic containers to place in your drawer and organize your products by category. You can separate your lotions, makeup removers, skincare, and makeup in different containers. If you are a beauty subscription box subscriber, save your boxes and use them instead of purchasing plastic containers!

Counter Space Organization

Reduce clutter and keep your counter neat and tidy with jars! The clear white jars give you that classic home counter top look, add your makeup brushes, Q-Tips, and makeup removing pads to fill the jars. Not only are your supplies in order but they are easily accessible!

Hang up the Hair Goodies

Let’s face it, we have so many hair products and tools that take up space! Move them out of the way and hang them on the back of your bathroom door with organizers available at Target and Ikea.

Packing 101 Tip- Bring a garment bag when you pack your dresses to avoid wrinkles during travel!

High Heels without the Pain

Attending a wedding it is safe to assume you will spend a lot of time on your feet and on the dance floor. Be sure to pick out heels that can last you all night long. There is nothing worst then having to sit down for the second half of the wedding. First things first, do not wear brand new shoes! If you have new shoes be sure to wear them out several times before the wedding. Second, if you know your feet won’t be able to take the heels all night we have two options for you!

  1. Hollywood Fashion Tape has a few options for your comfort! Their Haute Feels (Shop Here) is a soothing foot spray to spay before the pain starts! It is effective and works in minutes but lasts for hours.
  2. Pack a pair of flats! Take a pair of Tieks by Gavrieli (Shop Here) for perfectly portable flats that fit in your little clutch. If need be, remove your heels and replace them with this comfortable flats!

Tieks

Lastly…

Remember that if you forget something not to panic! You can most likely purchase something that the destination. Take advantage of the trip and reduce the stress. As long as you keep your cool there is always a way to make things work.

 

Skincare Prep before the Wedding!

We all want to look flawless for our wedding day, so make it a priority to start your beauty and skincare regimen early if you don’t already have a daily one. This shouldn’t be left to the last minute, the longer you have to correct any skin care issues you have, the better!

There are a couple options for to start off your wedding skincare routine, you can do some research or you can visit a professional and get their opinion. I would opt for the professional because you want the best results, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t want a relaxing facial? After your facial and your recommended routine, don’t drop the ball. Wash your face nightly and apply any serums to work on the issues you want to correct. Also, make sure to moisturize your skin, this is a stressful time so we want to get ahead of anything that can come up!
