One Compact Makeup

In my opinion, the best makeup to have is Seint’s one compact makeup system! Everything you need, minus mascara, will fit into one compact! Your foundation, concealer, color corrector, contour, bronzer, blush, illuminator, powder, lips, eyeshadow, eyeliner, and brows all fit into one makeup palette!

Having all your makeup in one palette will help you save time and space! You won’t waste time rummaging through your makeup bag or drawer looking for the product you need to use. And having your makeup in one compact will save you so much space! You won’t have drawers and bags full of products. It’s the best way to stay organized!!

Color Match Me!

Do you have tons of pots and palettes of eyeshadows that you’ve collected over the years?! They can take up so much space! But you can create a Custom Eyeshadow Palette with the exact colors you want without the clutter! Each eyeshadow tin is metal and the compact is magnetic so you can mix and match and replace and add eyeshadows as you wish! No clutter, but you still have all the options you need!

Plus, Seint’s one compact makeup is perfect for traveling!! It’s TSA approved so that means you can bring it with you on the airplane. You don’t have to worry about your makeup getting lost or spilling and making a mess.

Does Makeup Expire?

Just like we need to go through our closets regularly to clean them out, we need to do the same with our makeup. Did you know that makeup can expire?? You can check the expiration on your makeup products by looking at the bottom or back of the product. Find the image of a little jar with a lid and it will have a number on it. That will help you know how long the product is good for. So, if you’ve had your makeup product for longer than that, it’s time to toss it!

Here’s a rundown on how long makeup is good for:

Liquid foundation: 6 months

Lip gloss: 1 year

Powder: 1-2 years

Mascara: 3-6 months

Blush: 2 years

Eyeliner: 6-12 months

Eyeshadow: 2 years

Cream makeup: 1 year

When does makeup expire?

Makeup Organization Tips

Once you have tossed old products and makeup you don’t love or use, it’s time to organize it better. It’s best to organize by type of makeup. Keep all your lip products together, eye products together, blushes together, and foundations and concealers together. This will help you be able to find your products easier. Makeup organization will save you time and space!

How to Organize Makeup Brushes

There are 3 great ways to organize your makeup brushes: in a cute cup, in a box, or in a makeup bag. All are great ways, and it just depends on your needs and preferences.

If you want to have your brushes on the counter, then make sure it’s in a pretty container so it goes with your decor. If you want to put the brushes in a drawer, your container can be plain.

How to Organize a Makeup Drawer

The best way to organize a makeup drawer is to invest in containers that can help you separate your products. They can be really inexpensive containers from the Dollar Store or Walmart, or they can be a little fancier and aesthetically pleasing. It just depends on your budget and your wants.

Best Way to Store Makeup in a Small Bathroom

If you have a small bathroom, your storage options are probably pretty slim! And that’s why Seint makeup is such a great option for you! You can store all your makeup in one compact and just have a few brushes. Your compact and brushes can fit in a makeup bag or makeup case (my personal fave), a drawer, or a shelf really easily.
