Divide and Conquer
Instead of carrying multiple tubes, makeup artist Kristofer Buckle consolidates his lipstick collection by cutting a quarter of an inch off the top of each bullet with a butter knife and pressing the colors into separate spaces in a pill case (like this weekly medication organizer, $7). Or fill the morning, noon, evening and bed compartments in one of the removable daily slots with your must-have lipstick shade, cream blush, concealer and cream eyeshadow. Then pop this personalized makeup prescription out of the tray and slip it into your purse for midday touch-ups.
