Inexpensive Ways to Organize Your Makeup

When your makeup collection is growing, it just make sense to get them organized so you can find your products easily. How many times have you given up on finding up a blush you once loved but can't find it at the bottom of your drawer?

There are so many products in the market to organize your makeup. Most popular among bloggers and youtubers are the Muji acrylic drawer organizers. Unfortunately, we don't have Muji stores in Canada and unless we want to pay extra shipping fee, we cannot get them here.

At my second home(my parents' house), I have a growing collection of makeup and I don't want to spend a lot of money on organizers. 

I found this 3-drawer stationery organizer at my Solutions Store(similar to the Container Store in U.S.). There are many options in the store you could find to store your makeup. There are acrylic organizers at the jewelry/cosmetic storage section but there is none that have wide drawers which could hold blushes or powder foundations. 

3 very spacious drawers which I find very useful in housing my beauty products.

I store my blushes, bronzers and powder in the top drawer. I like the fact that I could see everything in one place, much easier to find things.

Second drawer I store some of my lipsticks and lip glosses. Part of this stay at my parents and whenever I come home for visits, I bring a few extras.

Bottom drawer is for my palettes.

There are so many great products at the stationery section which are far more affordable than the cosmetic/jewelry section. Of course, this is not made of acrylic and just plastic but still quite durable and functional. This drawer organizer is only $16.95.

This organizer would be good for storing palettes.

I store my makeup brushes in a pen holder from the dollar store(as seen in the first picture). It does the job for small amount of brushes. So there are endless ways to get your makeup organized and you don't have to spend lots of money.

How do you store your makeup?


  1. you have a separate makeup collection at your parents' place?! haha you must have a lot of stuff then, you should do another storage post on the collection at your place as well, I'd love to see that!

    I store my makeup in stationary organizers as well, mostly from Target, but I do have a couple of acrylic makeup storage thingies for lippies cuz I like how they look standing up... =P

    1. I am embarassed to say I need makeup organization at my parents as my stuff there is getting out of hand haha. My set up at home is similar except they are acrylic drawers and I store some in my vanity drawers. I love those acrylic lippies organizer. So much easier to have them all standing up and see their shades.
