How I Organize My Makeup

It’s so good to see you! I’m excited to be kicking off the weekend with a fun and highly requested post! I often get asked how I organize my makeup, and today I’m going to share exactly what I use to keep it all organized!

For beauty lovers like myself, you’ll understand that all of those trips to Sephora for “just one thing”, or a little late night online shopping can quickly add up to drawers packed full of precious beauty products! Tell me I’m not the only one who feels like they found buried treasure when you rediscover a product in the back of your drawer that you totally forgot you bought? Lol! A few months ago I decided that I finally wanted to get it all organized and sorted out, making it easier to access and not forget what I had! Plus, so many beauty products come in such pretty packing, so it’s nice to be able to see it on display!

I had seen pretty acrylic makeup organizers on Pinterest, and knew that I wanted to find the perfect set to put on my dresser or vanity. I was familiar with and loved the idea of GLAMboxes, but they were a little pricey for how many I wanted, so I kept searching for something similar. That’s when I came across the Luxe Acrylic Modular Storage at the Container Store. They were practically identical to the GLAMboxes, but much more affordable and you could build your own set with so many different sizes and pieces to choose from! They do all different size drawers, trays, inserts/dividers, and risers to set on top! I was a happy girl, haha! I ended up putting together a set that had exactly what I needed, and organizes all of my makeup perfectly. And looks pretty too!

As you can see in the photos above, I went with two of the large drawers (which are actually a little thicker now than the ones I have in these pics which is nice, but same price still!) 1 medium drawer next to two small drawers, and two medium short drawers. The nice thing is that all of their drawers stack perfectly on top of each other. For example, two medium drawers side by side will fit on top of one large drawer, etc. If you have limited space in your room/bathroom, you could just use the medium/small drawers to make a taller, skinnier stack rather than adding in the large ones for a wider stack! I can’t think of a better way to organize your makeup, especially if you live in an apartment, dorm, have limited storage space, etc! You can also use these for hair accessories, jewelry, desk supplies and all sorts of things!

I love that the drawers are clear so that you can see exactly where everything is and what you have. It’s so easy to find the lipstick I’m looking for (can you tell I hoard them, lol!) by being able to see the labels. I have a drawer specifically for face masks, my nail polishes in the small drawers, beauty samples I’ve collected and lip liners in another drawer and hair products and face creams in the bottom drawer. On top I set things like perfume, makeup brushes, my most used products and my 24-lipstick riser (only $6.99)! Since organizing my makeup with these, I find that I use a lot more of my products because I can see everything neatly displayed and not forget what I have! It’s freed up drawers in my vanity and gotten rid of clutter. Plus, it’s easy access right on my dresser so that I’m more likely to use everything, and looks really pretty too!! I actually had fun organizing and going through everything, and love that I can always go back and grab more drawers if I need to. Because let’s face it, the addiction is real and my makeup collection is ever-growing, especially my lipsticks, haha!

I will wrap this post up now, but I wanted to mention one more quick thing! These organizers make the BEST gifts for any woman you know that loves makeup, jewelry etc. You can build a set just for her, and she always has the option to go back and add more on. If you know someone going to college, or moving into a new apartment, or just needs a little help organizing ;), these are a great go-to. For Christmas this year, we put together a set for my mom because she loved mine and my sister’s so much. We filled it up with some of her favorite beauty products and travel size items which was such a fun way to complete the gift!

So that is how I organize my makeup! I hope that this answered some of your questions and that you found this helpful! I would LOVE to hear if you give these organizers a try, and don’t hesitate to ask if you have any more questions! Stay tuned for many more posts to come on my favorite beauty products + what’s in my makeup bag! LMK if you have any requests you’d like to see! ๐Ÿ™‚
