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 ...

The acrylic is so appealing...

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

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. 

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

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

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

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. 

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

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,

@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!

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

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!
