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 ...

I purchased a stack of plastic drawers in an office supply store and I have everything divided by catagory: face, lips, eye shadows/palettes, liners and mascara, sample and perk stash, and then odds and ends.  On my desk I have a mug that holds all my brushes and such, and a mug that hold the liners, mascaras, and any "tube" that is currently open and in use.  I also have a container that holds all my "go to" makeup. I am finally finding and using all the great stuff that I spend so much hard earned money on!

My makeup organizing methods are all over the place. I have plastic drawers for lipsticks (one totally dedicated to red lipstick) and lashes.

 

I have a traincase that is jam packed with palettes, shadows, and blushes; which I really need to clean out again...for the 3rd time this year. A lot of my products have a bad habit of running rampant in my linens closet. I have a box and bag filled with products that I haven't tried out, perfumes set to one corner, two hair bins that are complete clutter storms, and a brush belt which seems to always be hiding.

 

I ultimately want a vanity, but need something that has a lot of storage. Right now this just sort of works best for me...even if it is a pain to hunt things down every morning.

Whimsically yours,
Janine

@janinebt  I want a vanity too (someday)!  I hope to have another kiddo so I want something where I can put my items up high, out of the reach of little fingers & a vanity that has a ton of storage!

Right now everything is in a train case, makeup bags & boxes. I ordered a PBteen vanity & it was back ordered, came scratched, then backordered again. It's too expensive to be waiting months for it. Even though I hate IKEA, I might be going there this week and build some sort of vanity with 2 dressers with a shelf over them & hang a mirror on the wall.

I use 2 Muji - 2 drawers for all my daily stuff, larger palettes in my vanity drawer and the rest of my makeup is stored in the pier 1 hayworth lingerie chest

I <3 organization threads. :smileyhappy:

 

I was using some plastic drawers from Walmart (a larger 3 drawer organizer, and a smaller, but taller 5 drawer organizer). However, my collection's gotten bigger, and since I'm moving in a couple of months and everything's getting packed up, I have the perfect excuse to develop a new organizational system! I love those acrylic drawers though; I might invest in a couple of them!

thats what i had for about maybe 2yrs or more. and i swore against the clear acrylic and not liking to see through them lol. now i can't live without it. i had a larger 3 drawer and a small 3 drawer stacked on top or side by side. Now everything i use daily fits in my muji and i love that i can see everything.

The acrylic is so appealing...

I need to find a few method.

 

I don't want most things to sit out, but it takes a long time to find products not in my "quick access" drawer. I use 4 of The Container Store's plastic pull-out drawers (in purple) for my additional products. I just have too much!!!

I've been using this Spinning Makeup Case. I like how there are a lot of areas to store your makeup products and the top can come off to store more items inside!spin case.jpgcase.jpg

I say check your your local Michaels or Joann's, I've seen them around in the organizing area!

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

Currently I store the majority of my makeup in a Sephora Collection Train Case and then I have a small 3 drawer plastic case to hold single some single eyeshadows and some pencils. I have another drawer in my bathroom to store large palettes and foundation bottles (those never seem to fit well anywhere!).

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

My current method doesn't really work for me very well. Waiting to move so that I can purchase something that will organize it better! Currently using a couple of counter-top acrylic organizers from the container store, a couple of Bath & Body works empty candle glass jars for organizing lip products, and inside one of my drawers I use my empty birchboxes as drawers dividers to organize! We have a reuse, recycle policy in this house :smileyhappy:

my husband just bought me a large acrylic makeup case for my anniversary present! I LOVE it! 

 

Here is my image with about 3/4 of my makeup in it. ( I keep a 5 drawer plastic one in the bathroom for go-tos.)

 Edit 12/19/13 - DO NOT PURCHASE FROM b2bitems on ebay. They are terrible. Have terrible customer service and were dishonest (the case cracked within 4 months - please see this thread for more details: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Products/I-m-SO-upset-right-now-b2bitems-on-ebay-DO-NOT-BUY-FROM-THE...

wow i love love it. Great husband :smileyhappy: Do you mind me asking where did he get it? So yours is 5 drawers with 1 lid? and 4 of them have dividers? 

 

I think I want 3 or 4 drawers with lid with dividers cause it's cheaper :smileyhappy:

I have a counter top acrylic organizer but this...this is amazing! I bet the acrylic cube dot com has been experiencing a lot of traffic after your post! [I know I looked at the site!]

@alwaysglamorous  My husband actually got this on ebay the seller is b2bitems  ACRYLIC LUCITE CLEAR CUBE MAKEUP ORGANIZER W/DRAWERS  . 

 

They did an amazing packing job - double boxed, lots of bubble wrap & clear wrapping. (not so great for the environment but great for the customer - secure & no damage to item).

 

I changed out the pic on the top to the one from ebay. I liked the way the other picture looked with the stuff inside & I thought that the pic showed how big it is. But I wanted to show you more accurately the actual product
