Makeup Hoarders!!

By Huda Heidi Kattan

Admit it, we all have this problem! We can’t stop buying beauty products! There is something fun about buying a new product, I always feel like I have opened a new door on something that will surely make me look more glamorous! Sometimes the products work, most times they don’t, but regardless, I MUST try as many products as possible–anyone feel me? When I saw this video of a woman who is addicted to buying makeup, I thought, ‘gosh, she reminds me of someone!’ So with all the stocks of makeup, I thought it would be interesting to point out some great tips on ways to organize your makeup! I like the tips on the video, but I also think it’s great to use clear boxes or acrylic drawers to organize your makeup. You can find some great drawers at Ikea or even use old shoeboxes!

  1. i like this… nice one

  2. I agree with suntemple. The woman in this video clearly has an emotional problem, which she admitted also. These tips like when buying a product, throw something away are very useful to people who have tons and tons of makeup that they do not use, or have not used in a long time so they’ve gone rancid.

    I think that people with small, middle-sized and even relatively large makeup stashes might benefit more from tips like how to organize your makeup into smaller acrylic or decorated cardboard boxes or organizer towers or even how to make most of your makeup drawer with using special dividers. There is nothing wrong with having a lot of makeup if you can afford it, don’t use it as a crutch (meaning that you don’t tie your emotional and physical well-being solely to looking good with a made up face) and if you actually use everything you own.

    If you’re not a makeup artist (or an aspiring one), or an organized makeup collector who keeps their collection in a good condition, there is no point in owning lipsticks in colors that don’t suit you and if you feel like you still have to own them and spend lots of money on them, you should probably think about the underlying issues that make you act like this and if necessary, search for help.

    Makeup should make you feel gorgeous and it can be helpful in building confidence, not hinder your everyday life.

    Oh my comment is deleted – why Huda. Is it so cruel from my side to say that another video would be more helpful to give an idea about make-up storage and organizing?

    I met you personally and I didn’t expecting that you are deleting comments. I have big respect for your work and what are you doing. But be honest – this blog is business and a big successful blogger who runs a professional blog like you should be more open to comments from their subscribers.

  5. I have plastic bins in my bathroom for my make up and nail polishes, but this is ridiculous! I like the organization part of it though…I’ll probably share this with my readers as well. Thanks for the info!!

  6. amazing tips! thank you :)

    hey gorgeous!amazing ..keep it tight…work it out gal

  11. I’ve been surfing on-line greater than three hours as of late, yet I never discovered any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the net will likely be a lot more useful than ever before.
