Tidy Up Your Beauty Collection with the Best Makeup Organizers
Even if you don’t consider yourself a makeup guru, chances are you’ve struggled when it comes to organizing all the tubes and brushes that make up your beauty collection. Instead of piling them all in a drawer or basket (as I’ve been guilty of doing in the past), using a handy makeup organizer is the best way to store cosmetics and all the assorted toiletries that come with basic self-care. We’ve rounded up our favorites here, from classic acrylic styles to more stylish, creative, and space-saving options below, all for under $50.
Tips for Organizing Makeup
- Keep everything visible. Hiding away makeup is a surefire way to forget about it or lose it. While it is tempting to keep it out of sight in the name of clutter control, storing makeup in organizers will make everything visible without looking messy.
- Get creative with household objects. If you don’t want to shell out money for a traditional organizer (or want to supplement one with something extra), there are many ways to DIY your own storage. Using empty candle vessels, spare tupperware, ice cube trays, spice racks, and traditional utensil dividers are just some of the many household objects that can be repurposed for makeup storage.
- Throw a magnet on it. If you’re in desperate need of counter/drawer space, then magnets are your new best friend. Hang a magnetic board on the wall or on the side of a dresser or desk, attach small magnets onto your makeup (or a container to put the makeup in), and you’ve got a storage solution that won’t take up any valuable space.
