Time to organize all that makeup!
What’s prettier than makeup? Organized makeup! And you may already have the tools in your home to get your collection sorted. With these simple, convenient, and cheap tips to store your makeup, you can have all your favorite products on display to make your beauty routine simplified.
1. Use plastic Easter eggs to store your beauty blender.

This super cute plastic Easter egg hack is perfect if you’ve tossed the case to your beauty blender (or never had one to begin with). Decorate with stick-on decals or leave as is. Even better, most plastic Easter eggs have holes in the top and/or bottom so you can keep your sponge dry.
Hip Tip: Looking for a more Instagram worthy beauty blender holder? This metallic holder looks like a little piece of art for your vanity!
2. Organize products perfectly with a kitchen utensil holder.
Pick up a cheap tray from Amazon, or grab one for only $1 at the Dollar Tree! You can jazz it up with some metallic paint, contact paper, or washi tape to make it look less like, well, a utensil holder.
3. Repurpose old candle jars as makeup brush holders.
Repurpose your jars by removing labels and cleaning out the wax just like Lina did in this tutorial. You can fill with beads, pebbles, or any other small, waterproof fillers for a more decorative look, and you can even stand your brushes upright in them.
4. Arrange eye shadow in ice cube trays.

A simple plastic ice cube tray is all you need to separate your individual eye shadows for easy access. This also works for blushes, bronzers, highlighters, setting powder… you name it!
5. Corral eye shadow palettes in file organizers or napkin holders.

6. Use ribbon to keep items from shifting in drawers.

Customize your beauty brush roll by making your own with a bamboo mat and elastic! An even more simplified version only requires a piece of leather (you can always use vegan leather if you prefer) and a piece of ribbon to keep the roll secured. This is perfect for travel, too!
