Speedy Hair & Makeup

Why do so many women leave the house without doing their hair & makeup?  I guess some think they don't need it....but, come on, don't we all need it??  I think a major reason is because it "takes so much time."  It does not have to take lots of time!!!!  I'm just as busy as the next woman, and I never leave the house without it.

Here is my one, major tip for quick & easy hair & makeup:  Have your products organized and accessible!!

I hope to add pics and video of my own personal vanity & products at some point, but in the meantime, here is an example:

1.  Get a vanity or desk specifically for your makeup & hair products.  This can be a small, simple desk from a garage sale, or you can invest in a real vanity.  Either is great!  You could even designate a few drawers from a chest or dresser you already have.
2.  Trays!  I have my makeup organized in my vanity drawers in litttle trays.  Cheap and easy to grab quickly.  I keep hair brushes directly in the drawers.
3.  Crates!  I use a small crate for hair products like gels, hairspray, etc. 
4. Purse Hanger!  Since I use my hair dryer almost every day, I like to keep it out.  So I have it hanging on a purse hanger on the side of my vanity.  Again...very accessible!
5.  Vases!  I use vases for makeup brushes.  I used to keep them tucked away in cases, but it's so much more convenient to have them sitting out.  Plus, it reminds me to clean them more often when they are out!
