Makeup Storage Solutions

12:15:00 PM

If you are a makeup enthusiast like me, I am sure you also have a growing collection. I don't have a room all to myself since I am married. So I have to share the room with my hubby and our two boys.  Because of limited space in our room, I don't have my own vanity area.

So you're probably curious on how I store my makeup. My solution? I bought a couple of supplies at Ace Hardware and made my own shelves.

It's fairly easy to do, I just mounted the Angle bars on our wall and placed the panels on top. But I used a drill to make a hole in wall to avoid creating cracks.

So all of my makeup are now placed on our DIY wall mounted shelves.

Since I am a freelance makeup artist, I placed all of the makeup that I use on clients in my Caboodles Makeup Train Case. But I don't bring this case every time I have gig. I only hand pick products from this case if it is just for one or two clients and place it in a separate cosmetic bag.

I love to use Cosmetic Bags from Clinique simply because they're pretty and sturdy. The Big pink cosmetic bag is where I store makeup products that are new and never opened. The Small pink bag is where I store makeup products that I am currently testing for review purposes. The Big Bronze bag is where I store makeup products that I personally use.

As for my nail products, I use a couple of this slim white trays. I gave away some of my nail polish, especially ones that I don't use, to friends and my younger sister. So, it keeps my nail polish collection to a minimum. I don't apply nail lacquer that often anyway.

I keep some makeup tools and hair accessories in these plastic Vanity cases. It also includes some makeup that I seldom use, even empty makeup boxes that I haven't thrown out yet.

  1. You're so organized! My makeup are everywhere. In bags, pouches, drawers, reused shoeboxes, on my table, on the top of the cabinet. But surprisingly, I always know where they are. In a way, they're organized too. I make sure that the ones I use regularly are visible. I kinda think in layers. So the ones that I rarely use are the ones that are most hidden.

  2. Organized! =D I have an Ikea storage unit that I keep my makeup in. IT has 5 drawers and was fairly cheap =) I do have boxes and tins and things too LOL

  3. Good tips! I have a train case too :D I keep my makeup in two drawers of a 5 drawer unit thing. I used to keep all my makeup in plastic containers though, and it was so hard to keep everything organized!
