Make-up inspiration: Kate Bosworth

  1. Display only the necessities- those you use on a daily basis, otherwise it will only gather dust and add clutter. Store less frequently used items in a make-up bag or in a drawer for when needed.
  2. Keep everything organized according to purpose and colour. It will make it easier to find what you are looking for and look more streamlined.
  3. Use beautiful display trays in Lucite for a minimalist look or use metallics and other finishes to create more of a focus point. I store my cutex selection in a re-purposed Ferrerro Roche chocolate box (pictured above).

  5. Add fresh flowers and beautiful lighting to help create a calm and pretty atmosphere for you to enjoy.
