If you’re looking for Dressing Table suggestions, we’re guessing your room’s getting-ready area looks more like a Marie Kondo project than a glamorous, feminine haven. It’s true that keeping makeup organized can be difficult – all those lip liners, lipsticks, and individual eyeshadows can quickly become cluttered. It can also lead to you reaching for the same old cosmetics on a daily basis because a cluttered environment makes it difficult to see what you actually have – such as when you keep using the same old pan because you can’t bear to organize your kitchen cupboard.
Expensive makeup should be flaunted. Don’t hide your Dior lipsticks in a bag; they look great displayed proudly on your tabletop. There are plenty of clear perspex makeup organizers with dedicated sections for lipsticks, palettes, and tubes to keep everything organized — and if you buy a few, you can mix and match to create a solution that works well and can be expanded as your collection grows.
Fortunately, there are plenty of dressing table organizers on the market to help you keep track of your belongings. A few perspex organizers and a jewelry box or two can transform a tangled mess of necklaces and a strewn-together makeup bag into a Pinterest-worthy space. Here’s a selection of organizers to help you organize your belongings.
Because these brushes will be used on your face, keep them clean and don’t bury them in the depths of your cosmetics bag. A good set can cost upwards of £100 and look very stylish, so show them off.
If you keep your jewelry in a glass cabinet, you won’t have to dig through a box of necklaces and spend an hour detangling them before you can wear one. If you only have a few items, a box with separate compartments will suffice to keep everything organized. If you have a large collection, you may need many different organizers to get the best results. Necklaces and bracelets should be hung from a jewelry tree, rings should be kept in a ring holder, and earrings should be kept in a small box or dish.
A pen pot or other type of dressing table organizer can keep these items clean and upright so you can see what you need quickly. There are so many different styles to choose from that even if you don’t like clear glass or perspex, you should be able to find one that fits your space. If you don’t keep your hair tools in the bathroom, you can use this space to store them.
You’ll need a place to keep makeup remover pads, earbuds, and other necessities if you remove your makeup or perform your skincare routine at your dressing table. Use a pretty glass jar instead of the standard ugly packaging to make your table a more polished look. It’s a good idea to use multiple jars of different heights to bring interest to a Dressing Table.
Hair accessories, kirby grips, rings, and keys all require a home, but they rarely do so in a jewelry box. Is there a way out? Place them in a trinket tray to keep them safe. These are great if you have a ring or earrings that you wear every day but don’t want to sleep with on – instead of putting them away every evening, you can just pop them in the dish and have them ready to go in the morning.
