Makeup Organization and Storage Ideas


One of my New Year's resolutions is to become more organized. I don't know about you guys but I can definitely ALWAYS be more organized! I love being organized because it makes my life so much easier. Actually BEING organized, well that's a different story. Anyway, I knew I needed to get my growing makeup collection in order before my room became an overflowing unlivable mess of makeup products. Read on to see the simple and inexpensive way I decided to organize my makeup.


I have a few makeup brushes and I used to throw them all into a plain old cosmetics bag. But I decided to put them into these Ikea REKTANGEL vases ($2.99 each) and fill them with the Ikea KULĂ–RT decorative crushed glass ($2.99 a pack) to display them. I think they look cute and chic on my vanity. Keeping them out also reminds me to wash them! It's also way easier to just reach for the brush I need than to fumble through or dump out a bag of brushes.


This was the most simple, inexpensive, and easy way I could think of to store my makeup. I bought the small 3 drawer unit to store all my lip products and a small 5 drawer unit for all my other makeup. These small Sterilite drawer units ARE AMAZING! I found these at Wal-Mart and they weren't more than maybe $10 each, but I think that varies depending on where you live. I like that these are durable and clear (so I can see what's in each drawer).

I bought these bathroom accessories jars at HomeGoods. They were $4.99 each and I use them to store my cotton pads and Q-tips. I love having these next to my makeup because I can easily reach for Q-tips or cotton pads to fix my makeup mishaps.
