I’ve been fortunate enough to try plenty of beauty products over the years, but with that, my collection has become very large. At first, I had a tough time learning how to manage my makeup and skincare products and how and where to organize them. My medicine cabinet and bedroom quickly ran out of room, and I had to get creative fast. To avoid creating a mess out of my products I turned to storage alternatives rather than what already came with my home or regular furniture. I’ve been able to find some affordable makeup organizers that also go beautifully with the overall aesthetic of my home and personal style. These are the three storage categories that have helped me get my products in order the most and what I use them for. Be sure to let me know in the comments section if you guys have any other makeup organization tips!
Clear Shoe Boxes
One organizer that surprisingly comes in handy a clear shoe box, and they’re so cheap. I like to grab these from the Container Store, and you can purchase single ones or buy them in bulk. Ideally, these are perfect for stacking eyeshadow palettes and powders that can get lost or ruined otherwise. You can also stack the boxes on top of one another to make more space in your home if you want to have a few of them.
Over the last few years, different acrylic makeup organizers have popped up everywhere. From trays to massive chests to cylinders, they can fit pretty much whatever you need. Plus, they look great sitting on top of your furniture with all of your products inside of them. Some of these can be a little pricier, but they’re worth the investment if you have a lot of products and need organizers that already have dividers set up for you.
One of the most comfortable and most efficient ways to organize a lot of products is with a drawer set. The size of it is entirely up to you, the size of your room and how many products you want to stash inside of it. This is also a great way to incorporate your makeup organizer with your actual furniture instead of finding smaller accessories to match it. Another great thing about drawer sets is that you can buy dividers to put inside each drawer to separate items such as powders and lipsticks to find them easier later.
