Organized Hair & Makeup Station

Almost a year ago I bought a shelving unit from IKEA to better organize the master bathroom and I've been loving it since then. A few months ago, I decided to spring clean the bathroom and got rid of a bunch of stuff I no longer used. This started the organization process all over again... you know, because it was a day ending in "y".
I'd been eyeing up a few organizational ideas on Pinterest, namely, the Makeup Magnet Board and the Beauty Supply Ledge that I'd already incorporated in Chad's bathroom. I put together my supplies and slowly got to work as they arrived. I definitely love the result...
I needed a little extra lighting so I added the lamp. I was hoping (and still am) for something a little more awesome looking, that is a whopping $50. I'm waiting on that one. The IKEA version was only $10, so obviously it works for now.
The makeup magnet board has been AMAZING. Everything has it's own spot, but it doesn't seem cluttered. I can find each tool as I need it. I used these flexible stick-on magnets and attached them to pretty much everything you see sticking to the board. They've worked really well and I've only had to glue them on to the Stila container.
I also incorporated some clear 3M hooks for my eyelash curler and scissors. We had a couple of extra glasses (you know, in case something breaks), so I took the plunge (instead of storing hoarding them) and started using them for cotton balls and q-tips.
What I've noticed is that everything gets put away now, I no longer come in to a cluttered counter space. Cleaning the bathroom the past few weeks has been a BREEZE. I love the new system!
