How do you store/ organize your makeup stash?

[ Edited ]

I know this has been discussed before, but not recently, so I thought an update is in order!

Right now I have a bunch of makeup bags and shoe-boxes, but they just make things difficult to find and so I never put things back in. I organize so often, but my makeup ends up all over the place. I am looking to reorganize everything - so I would appreciate ideas from all you beauty gurus! Thanks!

*when I finally do it, I will definitely post a pic to follow up ...

Re: How do you store/ organize your makeup stash?

I have  a large vanity n my dressing room(my old guest room..who needs guests?) it has several drawers and shelves which hold my samples and back ups..i have a train case with all my gotta have it now's ..I keep liners and brushes in pretty vintage glasses..my vanity has a 3 way mirror and I also have an electric  magnifying one..my bathroom has all my hair and bath products around the tub, on a shelf under the mirror and in the cutest little table with a shelf behind the door that I found in a vintage store and painted shabby pink..i also keep my iron,dryers and other apliances in a basket in my bathroom under the table..when life gets rough I lock myself in my dressing room put on some music and play with all my pretties!!

I have a very fancy plastic shoebox that I keep everything in on top of my toilet. I"m not going to post a picture because it would make you all super jelly!

Re: How do you store/ organize your makeup stash?

I live in a teeny tiny NYC apartment, so my everyday makeup and skincare are in a couple of compartmentalized acrylic trays and boxes in a cabinet I installed in my bathroom (I have to share with my fiance, but I kind of have shoved all his skincare onto half of one of the 4 shelves).  I have the rest of my stash- stuff I haven't opened yet, and make up that I only use sometimes or for travel in 2 big plastic bins in my closet.

 

It isn't the best solution to store my make up in the bathroom, but I don't have a mirror or space to put stuff anywhere else.  One day I will have a space!!!!

my lippies and skincare are stored separately, but here's my newly organized traincase Smiley Happy

I counted All my Caboodles today, there are 6 for small make up items,10 large train case caboodles for large make up items and I have 75 Caboodles boxes for my perfume..

 

I think I need to have my room made-over with a special place in the walk thru closet for make=up shelves and PERFUME SHELVING!

IMG_2984.JPGI just have a writing table from Walmart and ten drawer organizer. On top, I have brushes and containers from the container store: the acrylic 3 drawer, 12 lipstick holder, and an acrylic container that can be used forever. I did get the Lori Greiner spinner for Christmas just haven't gotten an updated picture. This organization is great for me, ANS CHEAP!

I bought the Target Circo Amsterdam Blue Rugby Stripe Bin and then inside of it I put a divided cosmetics bin. It created two levels and organized everything nicely for me.

i bought a makeup organizer but i'm starting to need more space so i plan to get a bigger one.

Re: How do you store/ organize your makeup stash?

All my makeup (minus the backups) are on the top drawers of my dresser, because I couldn't find another place to put them. I went into a crazy organizing spree a few months ago, and bought all these containers from Target.  There's not really any formal organization. I just put whatever fit into whatever container and just made them fit in the drawers Smiley Very Happy

 

As you will see, I love makeup very much.. Smiley Wink

 

Foundations, lip products, eyeliners, mascaras, etc.

I love how you made use of that plastic Starbucks cup too! My brushes are in random glasses as well

Re: How do you store/ organize your makeup stash?

  • I have MANY , MANY, MANY CABOODLES...some metal, some plastic, some small,some medium, some large and in every style dating back to 1984-ish..but I have NO CLEAR ones ( just to be safe and so no sunlight or light of any kind is let in to ruin my products, especially my PERFUMES ( I am a PERFUME ADDICT ! )

Re: How do you store/ organize your makeup stash?

Right now all of mine is in a 5 drawer rubbermaid container, that is starting to overflow. 

 

As cliche as it is, I'm going to go to IKEA and get the Alex 9 drawers when I get my tax money back. I've been holding off as I travel a lot for work and most of my stuff is in a Storage shed (except my makeup which I keep at my parent's house). So I decided to just go for it so at least it will be organized while at their house! Smiley Very Happy
