My recommendation for storing makeup is to go with acrylic organizers. They are the most beautiful to look at, and they generally have the proper sized compartments that keep makeup in its' place more effectively than just stuffing everything into a drawer.
I also firmly believe that you actually USE what you can see & access easiest. So I prefer to keep my 'regular-rotation' items on the countertop, and keep my special occasion items put away in the drawers.
Yesterday I posted this pic on instagram showing you how insane my bathroom can get when I am
not using my organizers. :/ whoops...
But, you can also see what my collection looks like when I've tidied up and have things in their proper place in the pic below. Much better! Plus I can find things easier and actually use my counter space!
My organizers are from the Container Store, and I really love them... Although some day I would like to splurge and get a GlamBox of my own.
Here are a few great highly rated options for you. The more expensive organizers are all considerably larger, and use a thicker, stronger acrylic. And every now and then you can find nice discount options at places like TJMaxx too.
- Cosmo Cube $185
- BH Cosmetics Drawers $38-50
- The Container Store Stackable Modular $12-22 (shown in my bathroom pics)
- Caboodles Tray $15-19 (countertop tray in above pic)
- The Container Store Stackable Tray $20 (white trays in above pic)
- Glam Box $237 (large drawers in above pic)
