If you’re anything like us, at some point in your life your makeup collection has been described as ‘out of control’ or similar. If you often find yourself with mascaras spilling out of drawers, boxes full of blushers and more glosses than you can shake a lipstick at, you might just be in need of these handy makeup storage ideas.
The problem with makeup is that it can often come in small containers that are easily lost in the bottom of a drawer or at the back of a cupboard. Adorn your makeup table with a miniature chest of drawers and you’ll have plenty of compartments in which to store your fiddly bits.
If you often find that your drawers are a mess of various cosmetic bits and pieces, it can be super helpful to get organised with the same sort of drawer divider you use for your cutlery. Having compartments to separate your mascaras from your lip cosmetics and your eyeliners from your concealers will keep everything tidy as well as meaning that you can find what you need straight away if you’re getting ready in a rush.
Over the years we can find our makeup brush collection building and building until we can’t remember which brush is for what. Instead of holding on to a hodgepodge of different brushes, invest in a sleek makeup brush set. Not only will this pare down your collection to the bare essentials, your kit will also come in its own handy storage case so you can keep it tidy and organised.
If the idea of hiding your makeup kit away in drawers and storage bags fills you with dread, we understand. Sometimes a girl needs everything laid out in front of her so she can see what her options are. Still, wanting to keep your cosmetics on display doesn’t mean you should have them sprawled out all over your dressing table. Instead, try storing everything in kitsch little kilner jars. These are small enough that you can have one for each type of product without having too much clutter. If jars don’t float your boat, little wicker baskets or display cases work equally well.
