stylish and cool ways to organize makeup

I always get great organizing ideas looking around Pinterest and found some clever makeup organizers I wanted to share with you. I even made some myself to show you some ideas of my own, adding something a little different than other similar solutions.

Basically, when it comes to beauty products, they can overcome our allotted makeup space and become unruly, especially as we add new makeup products to our “collection.”Personally, I apply the closet rule to makeup, which would be to get rid of a product when I buy a new product (with the exception of nail polish and lipstick – that is, until it gets to be too much or it has out-lived its shelf life!).

Organizing your beauty products

We have our face creams, our makeup foundations and powders, contouring creams, various blush colors, numerous eye shadow colors, dozens of lipsticks, lip pencils, eyebrow pencils, eyeliners, mascara,  makeup brushes and pads, and heaven-knows-what-else. That’s a lot of things to help make us more beautiful.

Well, I found some cool ways to create various makeup organizers and, depending on the size of your makeup “collection”, one of these just might inspire you.

DIY Tiered Makeup Organizer

Very easy to make – just a couple of flat plates, a vase for the middle pole piece and some colored glass votive candle holders. You can get creative and use just about any of these type objects to organize and store makeup and makefup brushes.

Makeup Plate

It gets really simple when you just have the basics in your makeup stash and want to display them for easy access. Just get a large plate (in this case a large ceramic pie dish) and any type of containers to compartmentalize your makeup.
