Own a lot makeup? It can get messy and disorganized real fast but a simple solution would be to hang a shoe organizer either on a cupboard door or on your room door and organize all your makeup by lipsticks, eye shadow, nail polish and more in each pocket. You won’t believe how awesome it can make your life once you’ve tried it! You’ll never have to stress about finding a certain lipstick color again.

It’s quite common for a girl to have tons of hair ties and are you also the kind that keeps on losing them? I’ve got you covered. Reuse a carabiner (you can find one at the best price right here) to turn them into an entire collection and you easily have all your different color hair ties in one place! I’m especially guilty of losing hair ties like these and it makes me frustrated when I lose them. This one definitely solves my problem!
