Let’s Organize Your Makeup!

Last updated on July 4th, 2022

Everything in your space needs to have a ‘home’ of its own. That is how it becomes easier to find things as and when you need them. As makeup is one of the most crucial categories that one owns, it becomes necessary to organise all your supplies effectively. When all of your varied makeup products have their own space in your home, you’ll be able to find, use, and store them without any hassle.

Organizing doesn’t just involve stuffing things in drawers and then forgetting about them. Take your makeup organization to the next level with the following tips:

Use dividers in your drawers

When you put multiple things in a drawer, they tend to move around when you open and close the drawer or when you are reaching in for something. This makes your storage messy and unorganized. A great hack is to use dividers in your drawers to create smaller compartments. This creates smaller spaces to store your things by category and restricts their movement. Be assured that your products like cotton pads, Q-tips, and tissues will stay in their respective places while keeping your drawer looking clean and neat.

Work with wooden boxes and shelves

Wooden boxes and bins give your storage space a luxurious feel while keeping it neat. Store your makeup products in various containers by sorting them into categories. Add labels to these wooden boxes to make your search faster and more effective. Wooden boxes help in hiding any messy or unorganized products and take your storage space to the next level. These boxes and bins are available in multiple shades of wood as per your preference. They are also available in various sizes and shapes that suit different product categories.

Keep it clean with clear containers

When storing things in a cabinet or a cupboard, make it easier to locate your products by using clear bins and containers. This is a great storage tip if you want to reach for a specific product according to its brand or cover. Clear containers let you see the entire contents of your container and speed up your search, saving you precious minutes in the morning when you are in a rush to get ready. Clear acrylic bins also make your storage space look simple and organized.

Put it on display using open shelving

Putting things on display is not only a way to create extra storage space in your house, but it also lets you brighten up your space when you store colorful and well-packaged products. Not only that, when you put things up on clear, open shelves, it keeps you accountable to maintain that space, keeping it organized at all times. If you like collecting makeup products and owning a variety of those, open shelves are a great way to display your collection. This organization system will also make it easy for you to grab whichever product you need.

Cups and holders to the rescue

The best way of storing makeup products such as brushes, eyeliners, kohl sticks, lipsticks, eyelash curlers, eyebrow pencils, and more is to sort them by category. Cups and vertical holders come in handy for these categories. Sort all of these products and use individual cups to store them. You can alternatively group your everyday products and use a separate holder to distinguish them. This makes them easy to reach on busier days.

Soft baskets keep things sorted

Use this organization hack if you have deep drawers or shelves to store your products. Soft baskets act as alternatives to makeup pouches that one uses while carrying makeup products on the go. These soft baskets give your space a cozier look while protecting your products from any damage by cushioning them. These baskets come in different sizes and patterns to fit the aesthetics of your space and look great on a vanity.


Makeup products can take up a lot of space in your home, which is why it’s a good practice to store them effectively and aesthetically.
