OMG this is weird. But I’m absolutely obsessed with clear lipstick caps. Hear me out before you judge…
How annoying is it when you’re running late, & you want a lipstick color but you can’t see it, so you need to open up all the colors to see what you’re dealing with.
The hack of the century?
CLEAR LIPSTICK CAPS
Clear lipsticks caps make the color visible so you can just grab & go. Not only can you grab & go, it will completely satisfy your OCD because you can color code all your lipstick colors.
This is even more exciting when you have a clear lipstick holder ( which is a whole different post I feel ). I have to shout out my friend & makeup artist, Jules Wick, because she’s the one who gave me this idea, & it’s truly life-changing. A while ago Jules ( her company is Deuxaliti ) came to my house & totally redid my makeup & skin care organization.
& I came to this realization: WHO CARES ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE BUT CLEAR LIPSTICK CAPS?
To me, this made the whole project come together. This may sound weird to you. I just love details & this was a detail that SCREAMED chic to me. When Jules initially showed me her installment in NYC, this was the one detail I was SO fucking excited about. I think every girl should get these clear lipstick caps to display. Do you love?
Jules really paid attention to how she laid out the colors of the lipsticks too, which I thought was super creative. The clear makes it easier for when you’re running late ( ME, ME, ME ). JUST GRAB YOUR COLOR & GO. How annoying is it to have to open the lipstick to see the color? SO!!! With clear lipstick caps you keep it efficient- just how we like it.
It look so cute when all your lipsticks are displayed with clear caps. I love to showcase all my colors & keep it out on the vanity. It helps me to never waste any time looking for my favorite color.
You should know that these clear caps fit as good, if not better, than the original caps, the material is quality so you aren’t going to get some cracked bullshit, & they’re all the same height.
Like I said, I really like to keep them out on display. It adds such a cute, pretty touch.
& while we’re on the topic of makeup organization, let’s get into other ways to store makeup:
Some tips to organize your own makeup installation?
1.) START WITH A BASE:
Start with a closet. You can find one at IKEA. And use the closet to create your own custom makeup or skin installation. If you can’t do a closet, do men’s shoe boxes. I did that forever & it worked well. You can find more on that here.
2.) ADD A DETAIL:
Of course adding a personal detail is so important! Pick a color scheme, add some flair, personalize it to your taste. We used a lot of pink & black ( WHAT UP TSC ) & put a heavy emphasis on skin.
3.) CREATE A STATION:
You want a station to do your makeup. Mine pulls out so I can do IG LIVE’s easily or YouTube videos. Plus it’s great for day-to-day. I can pull it out, leave my favorites on there, & shut it quickly when I leave.
4.) THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX:
Incorporate pieces that aren’t necessary for makeup. The WHITE LIES jar is something we initially had in the kitchen. But now it’s in my installment. We also featured WOO ( coconut sex lube ), some of my favorite perfumes, & even have a Beauty Blender display. I love to bring contrast to everything I do.
The bottom line: MAKE IT ART! THIS TO ME IS ART.
♡ store your glosses upside down so you can also easily ( & efficiently ) see the colors.
♡ throw all your nail polishes into the organization mix.
♡ group similar colors together ( this is a no-brainer ).
Jules truly was a godsend for my bathroom. But clear lipstick caps are #1 in my opinion. It changed everything. It’s so easy, & you can do it at home. Efficient, easy, chic, looks amazing & brings your whole organization game up to a whole new level.
If you always G2G, like me, then this hack is for you.
As always, would love to know any organization tips for makeup or skin care that you guys have.
