If you wear make-up, you probably have your own make-up area. Whether it is in the bathroom or the bedroom, you have a place to put on make-up, dry your hair, and take care of yourself. But, how organized is your bathroom vanity area, and is all your stuff in one place?
I love my vanity. Feel free to visit my post on how I made my vanity area. It is a vanity that fits right in an alcove in my bathroom. And, to top it off, I have a plush chair to sit on. I'm a happy girl! However, I noticed when I am with my clients; they struggle with what to put in their vanity area. Below is a list of seven general things that are in my vanity area.
Remember having all your items in one place will help you save time in the morning and save money at the store, helping you not buy duplicate items.
7 Essential Things to Store in the Bathroom Vanity
Make–up products, make-up brushes, and cotton swabs and anything you use to get ready in the morning goes in this area.
Replace the make-up products that are more than 6 months old. If you use makeup brushes, clean the brushes often to cut bacteria and other germs out of your space.
Below are some examples of organizers to use for these items. I found them from Amazon (affiliate):

Clear out the hairdryer vent on the dryer, it will collect dust easily and will overheat the dryer when clogged. Below are some examples of products to organize these items. They are from Amazon (affiliate).
Hairstyling products and hair accessories
If a hair product doesn’t work for you, before buying a new one, give or toss the old one. Don't keep all the products you are not using. It may work for someone else.

Having a vanity mirror with storage above your sink or vanity is a great way to add more storage space to your vanity area. Below are some options for organizing these items. I found them on Amazon(affiliate).
Most of all, keep your bathroom vanity clear so you have surface room to spread out, decorative bins with lids make space look feminine and still functional. Label each bin with the group name for easy reference.
