Absolutely loving this beautifully organized dressing room from the home of Rita Hazan:
Shoes are neatly arranged on white open shelves (from Ikea!) and beauty essentials are on a glamorous mirrored vanity
A stylish modern black platter helps keep things organized.
Such much goodness here – the big window with floor to ceiling drapes, the tufted daybead, the unique gold wall studs, the brass glass pendant…
A patterned tray corrals jewelry and pretty objects.

I recently gave one of my drawers a little makeover with a clear organizer and a roll of duct tape. I used the organizer, which I picked up from Ikea, to separate all my items. It has lots of little compartments that make it easy to designate a spot for each thing. When everything is in it’s place, I can quickly find what I need.
As for the duct tape, I used it to create a stylish drawer liner. 3M has a great snake print tape from their new Expressions line that can be used in a lot of creative ways. Kelly of Fabulous K recently used it to cover a photo frame and Megan of Honey We’re Home used it to cover a mousepad and a tray. To make my drawer liner, I simply measured the bottom of my drawer, cut a piece of poster board to size, covered it with strips of the duct tape and then fit it inside the drawer. Super easy. Looks great and as a bonus, it helps protect my drawer. If anything spills, I can easily wipe it off. This is what I see when I open my drawer now:
What do you think? Not too shabby huh?
If you’re thinking of using snake print tape for a little project of your own, use this coupon for $1 off.

I love finding pieces that can be mixed and matched to accommodate various space and storage needs. My most recent finds are these Muji acrylic drawers and stands. The configuration below shows the 2 Drawer Acrylic Case with the Large Acrylic Stand on top of it, used for organizing makeup brushes, tools, and cosmetics.
For additional storage compartments I could swap out the 2 Drawer Case for the 3 or 5 Drawer Case…or maybe add the Small Acrylic Stand… or this case placed horizontally on top of the drawers… So many possible combos!

With an increasing collection of makeup brushes and makeup itself, I found myself frantically searching for a specific makeup brush every morning while trying to get ready for work. With no rhyme or reason, I would just toss my brushes in a drawer and leave them to get smashed by the million other makeup items I would throw on top of them.
I got the idea from Sephora to use clear jars filled with a weighted object to display and keep my brushes organized. While having a hard time trying to find beanbag fill, I opted for a $1.00 bag of white beans to use instead. I filled each glass container halfway full of the beans and stuck my brushes straight in the beans to stand them up. I designated one jar for eye brushes and one jar for face brushes. It was a cheap and easy alternative to easily find a brush, keep them clean and keep them organized. Another suggestion is to use coffee beans as a filler; your brushes will have an extra special scent and might give you an early morning boost while doing your makeup!
