Makeup Organization

I recently re-did my makeup storage so I figured why not show you because I like what I ended up with. This all started when I had Jared make me my storage for my lip products. The organizers came from Target. I got the idea from this YouTube video:


So yeah, same thing used there. I like them because you can stack them and move them around however you want. Here's how it turned out:

Top Left Drawer
In the back on the bottom in eye bases. Stacked in that one is concealers. In the middle is eyebrow products on the left and random stuff beside that. Mascaras are in the front. False lashes and a small mirror from a Benefit kit on the side.


Bottom Left Drawer
This is the eyeshadow drawer and it's obviously out of control. Eyeliner pencils in the back. In the middle there are glitter, kajal and liquid liners and cream shadows on the left and NARS duos on the right. In the front are various single eyeshadows, duos, trios and small palettes. Palettes that don't fit are on the side.


Bottom Right Drawer
 Face products drawer. Benefit boxed powders and NYX blushes in the back, other blushes, highlighters, bronzer and Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks in the middle, foundations, primers, and powder in the front. Various things I couldn't make fit on the side.

The top right drawer is lip products. 

I'm still playing around with it, but these are the most versatile organizers I've ever used for my makeup so I'm loving them. I bought 3 of the sets and each one came with one long organizer that wouldn't fit in my vanity drawers. I'll show you tomorrow how I ended up using those. 

Yes, I know it's a lot of makeup. No need to point that out.

I need to do something like this pronto. I have random make up bags/buckets scattered on the dresser, in the bathroom and in my closet. No wonder I can never get the look I want.

Also I leave tomorrow for my trip and I haven't packed. I thought it was a fail you'd appreciate. Go me!

nice work!! I have the hardest time ever organizing my makeup, it is truly a struggle especially because it can get so messy. I don't think I'll ever master it like this but I'm impressed by how well you did!

those are perfect and your organization makes me jealous. I don't have tons of make up but I could use the organization spirit everywhere else in the house.

Kara said...

I just organized my makeup drawer with these nice bamboo organization trays from crate & barrel, but I had to take everything out and now need to reorganize. I really love Tiffany's mirrored setup in the video.. I'm gonna remember that for the future. You have some great products- I'm wanting all your Nars things!

You are SO organized! I'm jealous. I also need someone handy to build me a contraption like this. I'm wondering if Gabe's up for the challenge. Jared did a great job!

Awesome organization! I need to upgrade -- I still use a Kaboodles case!

Jess said...

You are WAYYYY more organized than I am! So jealous. And so jealous of how much makeup you have!

Jenny said...

I love your organizational posts - I am super envious of your makeup collection. I'm a total Nars-a-holic. I love his blushes, obviously I use orgasm, but is there any other color of his that I should try, something a bit pinker? Also what's the best undereye concealer you've tried? I'm just full of questions tonight - lol!

style'n said...

wow you have a ton of makeup. Tell me-how long do you keep your stuff before tossing? I feel like lately I don't buy as much b/c I end up throwing things out. Great job organizing!

Bella @Bellgetsreal said...

and I thought i loved makeup but NOOOO. I bow to you!I love how you organized it all. I too use the make up compartments but I bought mine at linen and things(when they were still around) Same idea and I too love it.

Tiffany - I am Style-ish said...

I just filmed my video of my makeup organization today so it was fun to see your post!

TheChambrayCountess said...

You have great make-up! I could play in that (well organized) drawer for hours!

Val said...

Ooh, your collection is totally enviable! I love how organized you are.
