How do you store/ organize your makeup stash?

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 ...

Hi Onomotopoeia9,

 

I know how you feel! I have a lot of make up bags too and I use them for storage. I really need to go and get those clear pull out bins. I also have a few shoe boxes that I have organized in different categories: Lipsticks, blushes, foundations etc. Its a temporary fix but, it works for nowSmiley Happy

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

Right now I just store mine in mini 5 drawer organizers I got from walmart. Though I do want to get something along the lines of a Clear Cube, I've been looking at something similar from The Container Store. I feel like they'll look much nicer on my vanity. But I'm moving soon, So I'll have to wait.

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

I think I just bought the same organizers you have! I bought two to stash the majority of my smaller makeup in. I also have a trunk from Sephora that I have filled with a range of makeup that I use on other people, and my bigger eyeshadow palettes usually are in a cabinet since they don't fit anywhere else!

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

Yeah they're prefect for smaller/compact makeup. But I find that if I'm going to keep using these, I'll have so much since I need a lot of room for my makeup!!

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

I hear you on that. I don't really have any room left in the two I already own. On one hand I could say I guess that means I probably should buy another organizer. I also could say I probably should get working on using up the makeup I already have in there :-p

swfupload_6827314285299187821.pngI want the ediva.....but I don't like the X dividers. You don't *have* to use the dividers, but they sure do make things easier. Its very similar to the clear cube, but puurrrrtier because of the rounded edges.

 

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

Right now, I have a clear pull out storage container that is holding all my makeup collection. I organized them by face product in one drawer which would include foundation, powder, bronzer, and highlighter. My blushes have their own drawer just because they won't fit with the face section. Then I have one for eyes which include any paint pots, single eye shadows and primers. Palettes, I have a CD rack that you can get from target to hold them. Another drawer I have is misc, samples of perfume, lip scrub, and other misc I have.

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

A cd rack for pallets...so creative!

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

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...

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

So nice! This is what I'm talking about, you can see everything and it looks great Smiley Happy

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

Love the clear storage!!! It is so organized, everything is accessible, and you can see all of your goodies! Do they make the acrylic organizers in any other shapes/sizes? (I'm trying to figure out how i can fit it in my room)

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

and just as a btw, it looks like you have great stuff in there!!!

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

@onomotopoeia9  - yes they do. The seller makes them with a minimum of 3 drawers and max of 8.  The 5 drawers that I have measures 12" x 12" x 15"H.

 

3 drawers- 12" x 12" x 9 1/2"H

8 Compartments Display 12" x 12" x 23"H

 

The Bottom drawer is bigger 3 3/4 inches high  (it can fit big nail polish like OPI or any other big products).  It is a little short for my foundations though. 

 

My husband ordered the one with extra dividers so that I can organize with in each compartment. 

 

I'm really happy with mine. It is really heavy duty/thick acrylic.

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

awesome thanks roxystar4 for your helpful info Smiley Happy I have just told my boyfriend to get it for me in near future Smiley Wink

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

@violalea   You can order the acrylic makeup organizer with the dividers (there is a drop down menu). the dividers are adjustable and dont fit snuggly into the drawers. So you can put 1 or 3 or however many. I didn't put one in for the the drawer with my palettes

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

@roxystar4,

 

Thanks. Yeah near future hopefully Smiley Happy

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

Nice, sephoramusthave! What did you buy first - the makeup or the storage??

lol, but seriously, once I am investing...

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

That is awesome!  Since it's clear, it can work with any decor in your bathroom or bedroom.  

 

I keep going back and forth about organizing.  I still don't have it just right, and it is bugging the heck out of me! lol.
