Okay, so if you’re anything like me you may have seen a few (okay, like a hundred) youtube videos of someone’s “makeup collection” or “makeup organization”. I think I may have a serious problem. In my dorm, I don’t really have the room or need to have a whole designated area or room devoted to makeup. It also isn’t very practical to have makeup laying around everywhere, so I keep the bulk of my collection in a train case and only keep the makeup I reach for on a daily basis out.
Now, my goal is to use up makeup products this year (and keep it that way). I really just want to live with less overall. I find that I regret purchases often and end up never finishing up products. Anyhow, here is how I store the makeup that I use everyday.
I keep my makeup on my three drawer chest/side table right next to wear I keep my lotions, body sprays, and hand sanitizer.
On the right I keep all my makeup in an acrylic 3-drawer organizer that I bought from the Container store for around $12. I also have a double sided mirror (one side is magnified) that I bought from the dollar store. On the left of that I keep theBalm’s Nude tude’ palette which is the palette that I am currently using.
In my first drawer, I keep my face products such as foundation, blush, powder, and concealer. It’s actually my favorite drawer so I have it as my top drawer so that I can see it from a bird’s eye view :).
In my second drawer I keep my lip products, eyeliners, eyeshadow primer, and mascara.
And my third drawer is kinda where I keep my beauty tools. I keep my eye makeup remover, tweezers, eye pencil sharpeners, and my Maybelline dream lumi concealer (because it didn’t fit anywhere else).
And that’s how I keep my everyday makeup organized. I think this is a good amount of makeup (maybe too much) to have on hand because it’s not too overwhelming where I have to dig through drawers to find what I want but there’s still enough for a little variation.
How do you store your everyday makeup?
