Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it’s officially back to school season! To be honest, I was always excited to go back to school every year, especially when I was moving into my university dorms. It’s a new chance to decorate, get organized and also clean house. It gives you an opportunity to really decide what your must-haves really are, since you have to pick and choose what you’re bringing with.
Whether you’re bringing a beauty collecting large or small with you to school, keeping everything in its place will help you streamline your routine. Three types of beauty storage you’ll want to have are a vanity set up, a toiletry case, and a pouch to throw in your purse.
For your Vanity: Caboodles On-The-Go-Girl
This classic Caboodles organizer gives you enough room to hold everything you want in arm’s reach, and can either be stored on your desk or slid under your bed. It folds up into a sleek, pink carrying case that also makes it easy to transport when visiting home or going on spring break.
With four useful compartments and a large mirror, this train-case style organizer becomes a makeshift dorm vanity. What I love most about this ultimate makeup organizer is that the storage is roomy enough to house full sized bottles of product, large palettes, and depending on your collection you might even be able to fit your hair and/or skincare products inside too!
I would totally use something like this on my dorm desk, keeping it open to inspire me and show off my favorite products… unless you have a shady roommate. In that case, keep it closed!
For Your Toiletries: Caboodles Le Sophistique 10-Piece Bag
Often times in dorms, you have to walk across or down the hall to get to a communal bathroom. That’s a lot of back and forth when it comes to carrying your toiletries! This 10 piece set has everything you need to compartmentalize your bath and body products.
The train case is great for hauling your skin care essentials, with a smaller pink pouch that I personally use for feminine hygiene products. The small, narrow case is great for hair pins and ties— or keep it separate and use it as a pencil case, there are no rules here!
Great tip: if you have to walk down a long hall to get to your dorm’s showers, don’t carry full sized bottles of hair products with you. Use travel sized bottles, like the four that come in this set, to carry a smaller amount with you to lighten your load. Refill as necessary, and it will definitely make mornings a little easier. The small loofah is useful
Keep your towel and clean clothes folded and zipped up in the transparent bag so that they don’t accidentally get wet, and they stay wrinkle-free for when you step out of the shower.
For When You’re On the Move: Caboodles Devotion Extra Wide-Opening Zip Clutch
This compact bag is great to carry your look of the day with you for touch ups. Use it for your beauty supplies, school supplies, or both! Don’t be fooled by it’s small size, it zips open to be rather wide and roomy inside, so you’ll never go without an essential when you’re out and about. The case also has a frame that holds it open when you’ve unzipped it, making it easier to dig around for what you’re looking for. The outer black diamond fabric is soft and slightly padded, so it will keep your beauty treasures safe from the jostling of your backpack or purse.
Keeping yourself organized throughout the school year will not only make your life easier, but you’ll be less likely to lose stuff in the hustle and bustle of dorm life. Luckily, I’m giving you a chance to win all three of these beauty storage solutions!
