Most Organized is a monthly series in which one editor, team member or friend of Livingetc will share the top 15 items on their current wish list.

My collection of beauty organizers is — by necessity — well, let's just say it's quite extensive. Some might call my love for makeup and skincare an addiction, but I prefer to think of myself as a connoisseur. A diligent tester, if you will, of anything and everything I can slather on my face. From everyday essentials to those sparkly shadows that rarely see the light of day but are kept just in case, parting with my beloved products is not something I take lightly. Or, let's be honest, do at all. The solution isn't necessarily to purge what you love, but rather to find the right home for it.

My skincare routine consists of more steps than the number of blocks I walk in my New York City studio apartment. With a plethora of products and limited space, maximizing every square inch of storage is crucial. Just like my closet organization ideas, my beauty storage must be both stylish (naturally) and practical — a system that allows me to grab what I need in a pinch when I realize my allotted half-hour for makeup has suddenly dwindled to five minutes.

The key to a successful beauty station? Strategic organization, according to professional home organizer Laura Price. ‘If you’ve got a lot of products, it’s not enough to just separate skin care from hair,’ she advises. ‘Get specific!’ Categorization is my golden rule. As much as I'd love to keep my snail mucin serum next to my favorite Chanel highlighter (they both deliver a radiant glow), that's not the most efficient grouping method. Separate your daily skin routine from those you use once/twice a week,’ Laura suggests. ‘Or keep your eye makeup, separate to your skin, separate to your lips. The more separated, the more streamline the getting ready process will be.’
