Makeup organization tips!

It is now mid-January and I think a lot of us are in ‘life improvement mode.’ Maybe you’re like me and want to start the year with a clean slate, including your makeup drawer. Or drawers. Or in my case, my drawers, medicine cabinet, under-the-sink area and a few boxes in my closet. Sheesh.

Here’s a glimpse at my set-up in the master bathroom. Look closely and you can see my beloved garden tub in the mirror reflection. I try to keep things on the counter beautiful AND functional.

Where I (never) sit to do my makeup.

A tray, bowl and cup keep items contained and easily accessible.

A pretty bowl keeps my daily jewelry neat and dry.

Here’s a trick! This is a great way to keep items separated so you can see and use them easily.

Use a kitchen utensil organizer for your makeup!

Yes, I have a lot more makeup than you see here. This is what I keep it in, separated by warm vs. cool, with everyday items (eyelid primer, brow gel) in the top drawer and rarely used items (glitter, powder) in the bottom drawer.

  2. Ohhh I NEVER would have thought to use a silverware organizer in the drawer! Genius! And I am at the man-I-really-just-want-to-throw-everything-out-and-start-over phase with my makeup lol Probably not a bad idea.

    • I was something of a makeup hoarder and had to accept the fact that I was wearing the same 20% of my stuff 80% of the time. I had to be ruthless and throw things out–it was painful! :) But now my most-loved and most-used items are front and center and it makes getting ready so much easier. And now I can justify buying a few new things because I know I’ll really use them. Thanks for commenting!
