If you love makeup as much as I do then chances are you have a lot of it. Whether its multiple shades of lipstick, eyeliner, or eye shadow you are probably swimming in it. So how do the pros keep it organized?
I have used a caboodle for a while. You probably had one in the 90s. And it probably looked like this
You can still buy them, but they look a lot more like this now
I always called it my tackle box.
These caboodles are a great way to store your makeup, but sometimes it is hard to find. No matter how many times I clean out my caboodle and organize it, I am always digging around!
This is why the pros use a clear makeup storage drawers
This is probably the best way to store your makeup. You can dedicate each drawer to a specific item, and you can easily find that item because the drawers are clear! These drawers come in many different sizes. The one pictured has five drawers but you can also get them from three drawers to 10. They are pretty cheap as well, and you can find them anywhere. Check Target, Walmart, Marshall’s, Ikea. Literally anywhere that sells storage units.
Now, this is a great way to store your actual makeup, but what about your brushes? Storing them in drawers can flatten the bristles. This is why you should store your brushes in jars.
A lot of places make storage units specifically for brushes, but I think it is more fun to make them!
I used a vase from the dollar store and filled it with beads.
You can use coffee cups, jars, vases, whatever you can find in your home really! You can even use rice as a filler instead of buying beads like I did.
With all these great storage ideas its time to clean out your old makeup and buy new stuff!
