Beauty tutorials are big on YouTube — a search for "makeup tutorial" and "hair tutorial" yields more than five million videos. In this weekly series, we put a mix of popular and under-the-radar tutorials to the test and show you what's best.

A stash of beauty products is only as useful as it is accessible. You could have the best makeup collection this side of a Sephora and still be left with a frustrating beauty routine if it's not organized properly. Enter this Youtube tutorial posted by minimalist beauty blogger and Instagrammer Tamira Jarrel. It's like a Tasty video, minus the food, plus an acrylic organizer. By which I mean it is utterly transfixing and soothing. (Who needs Klonopin when you can watch a beauty blogger organize her makeup brushes?)

In the video, Jarrel goes through her entire vanity stash, talking through the utility behind her minimalist, fully-Instagrammable setup. A word of warning: It'll make you want to run out and invest in a bunch of Diptyque candles to simply burn through as quickly as possible and then use to house your makeup brushes, but it's worth a watch. (It's also pretty difficult to get through the whole thing without wanting to scoop up the sensor-equipped lighted mirror.)
