How To Organize Your Makeup: 10 Unexpected Easy & Cute Tips From Pinterest

As an admitted beauty junkie, I have – as you would imagine – a ridiculous amount of makeup. I’ve got more eye shadow than I can count, tons of makeup palettes, a crazy amount of lip gloss and what feels like millions of different eyeliners. I also have random things, like highlighter sheets, fake eyelashes, glitter and, of course, a bunch of makeup brushes. I love all of my makeup, but the question is always: how do I organize it?!


Organizing your makeup is super, super important, especially if you have a lot of products. If you don’t organize it, you end up with a jumble of beauty products stacked on top of each other in a drawer, spilling all over the place and getting easily lost. Plus, organized makeup on a desk or vanity can look really pretty, if you do it the right way! Sure, you could spend lots of money over at The Container Store on the same plastic organization units everyone else has… or you could figure out some unexpected options on your own to make your makeup area more unique.

You’d rather do that second option, right? That’s what I thought. Here are 10 unexpected, but easy and cute tips on how to organize your makeup, thank to Pinterest.

Which of these ideas are you going to try? How do you organize your makeup? What tips did I forget? Tell me in the comments.

    I’m terrified of using a magnetic board for pressed powders. What if they fall and break?

    Also, avoid exposing the perfume bottles to light, it makes it degrade and can change the smell. The best is to keep them inside the box and far from direct sunlight.
