Melissa on NBC Today Show - The Next Big Thing!

Melissa Clayton was a semi finalist on The Today Show's Contest - The Next Big Thing.  Clayton invented The Matte after being frustrated with the lack of counter space in her bathroom. "Living in Boston for 10 years, all I ever had was small bathrooms with very little counter space. Every morning while getting ready, I placed my hairdryer and hair straightener on the toilet bowl and balanced my makeup bag on the corner of the pedestal sink."
The Matte Turning Your Sink Into a Vanity

The Matte Turning Your Sink Into a Vanity

The Matte has the ability to turn your sink into a make-shift vanity. How? This sturdy foldable matte goes over your sink to create a hard surface to lay your makeup and other beauty items. It’s actually inspired by girls or guys who are getting ready in smaller bathrooms in the morning but I think anyone can use it.

The Matte's patented lightweight, heat-proof, and foldable to the size of an iPad case, making it portable and easy to store. It can hold up to 2 pounds of products, be it hot hair tools or makeup palettes, and one half even features special indents to keep your beauty essentials in place. To use it, all you have to do is unfold the mat, lay it over the sink with the indent side facing you, and prepare to get ready like never before. When you’re done, simply wipe it down before closing.
