An Organized Dressing Table is very much required in our room. A Little discipline, simple organizers and some planning can result in amazingly organised dressing table.
I have a small Dressing Table with 2 Drawers. There is practically no space behind the mirror to keep any stuff. The good part is It is very compact and concised. But, On the Other Hand, My Organizing abilities are put to test when it comes to the Storage space. I have tried my best to maximize the space efficiently.
Since, I have only 2 drawers. I keep all the make up items in the first drawer and all the Hair Styling Machines in the another drawer. I have placed Anti Slip Drawer Liners which prevents items from moving from its place and keep the drawer clean as well.
On the Top Drawer, I have got Acrylic Remote Control Organizer. I found it perfect for my deep drawers. They have different compartments which helps to keep cosmetics segregated. I have kept Wet wipes at the back & cotton pads in one cute little box. I have used Lipstick Organizers to keep different shades of lipsticks and some miscellaneous items like Eyeliner, Lip pencil, Kajal, Nail Filer, Buffer etc. One can arrange lipsticks as per shades or texture like mat to glossy or bright to light. These Organizers keep vertically segregated. One can choose and pickup the right shade easily and after using can be placed back at the designated place without causing messiness. I keep all the combs in a Vertical Shaped Acrylic Tray which helps to keep them at one place.
Tip: If you don’t have deep drawers, then you can use Plastic Drawer Organizers to keep cosmetics segregated. These organizers are cost effective too.
Tip: If you have small kids at home and It is difficult to keep cosmetics in drawers then get security locks which can be placed on drawers.
Now, In the Second Drawer, All my Hair Styling Machines like Blow Dryer, Straightener & Curling Rod is kept. Space left out is used to keep Vanity Pouches where I keep extra Make Up which I use occasionally.
Tip: Do not keep your Hair Styling Machines without tying their wire. They can get tangled with each other and obviously look messy also. I keep them neatly by tying with Velcro Strips. You may use Cable Tying Clips also or normal elastic band. By keeping in this way, They can be easily seen without fiddling with wires.
Now, I don’t have more space. So, I use the table space to keep my rest of the things. I have placed a DIY basket(Used a simple Basket which was fit for the area and wrapped with a decorative paper. You may use any spare cardboard box also rather than Basket. In this, I keep daily used Perfumes, Cleanser, Rose Water, Face Cream, Sunscreen & Body Lotion. This Box keeps the place neatly arranged which prevents messiness and easy to wipe the surface without removing all the items. I keep a beautiful Acrylic Drawer system which has 4 drawers on the dressing table. The deep drawer is perfect to keep big clutchers. Small drawers can be used for keeping hair accessories, tic tacs, bobby pins, Hair Ties, Rubber Band. I use a magnet coin to keep all the bobby pins at one place. I use a mug with handle to keep the brushes.
Revolving makeup organizer to utilize vertical space. In the bottom section, One can keep perfumes, Body Lotions etc. Top section can be used for keeping frequently used items like hair clips, daily wearing items etc.
These items can be shifted behind the mirror for storage If you have that kind of Dressing table. And Those who have Long Mirror with Cabinets can refer to My Dressing Table Organization.
