God bless lacquer boxes. They look chic, and they hide all sorts of beauty loot. The only problem? They hide it a little too well, so it’s hard to keep track of what makeup you’ve got where. Enter the DIY label. It’s a small little addition that’ll step up your organizing game.

You will need: lacquer boxes (like these from the Container Store) in whatever sizes or colors you desire and two-inch stick-on letters (you can find some here).

Step 1: Wipe the surfaces where you plan to stick the letters clean.

Step 2: Carefully apply the letters to the boxes. Use the words likes “TOOLS”, “LIPS”, “EYES”, “FACE”, or whatever you need to organize your stuff!

The best part? The stickers come off, so if you change your mind about what you want to store in the box later, no worries. Smart, right?
