Do I Organize my Makeup Drawer?

To organize a makeup drawer, I find it best to buy clear acrylic bins in all different sizes. While these products can be found online, I suggest you first measure out your drawers.


Our favorite way to organize make up is to use a variety of sizes of drawer acrylic organizers because it a classy and clean look, everything is contained and visible.

Adding these acrylic compartments are a game changer! They’re not only creating functional storage options but help you keep everything neat and tidy.


Store lipsticks and any eyeshadow sticks upside down in acrylic bins. This way you can easily see which lipstick color or eyeshadow you’re searching. It’s especially handy if you have similar packaging.


The key to keeping things organized is containment, and for makeup it is best to use small organizers and separate categories: eye shadow, foundation, lips, bronzers, eyeliners, etc.


If you have an older drawer, you can line the inside with adhesive paper to brighten up the space and cover over any chips and dings. This also keeps the bins from moving every time the drawer is opened.


How Do I Organize My Makeup in a Small Space?

Organizing makeup can be tricky since the items come a variety of sizes.


To save space, Regalado, who has a large collection of lipsticks, will group spring and summer colors in one pile and fall and winter shades in their own stash. You could rotates by season, moving winter shads into an extra beauty bag during summer for example and store what are not going to use soon out of the way in a different drawer.


To create more storage, You can uses a rolling art cart which has 12 drawers to hold all of extra makeup. You can also use a linen closet or reuse a jewelry dresser to help store their makeup.


For those clients who want to use their countertop, I suggest using stackable bins. This can create more storage in a tight space.


Another option if space is tight is to use a storage system underneath the sink to hold extra makeup and duplicate products.


It’s a great investment in yourself to hire an acrylic organizer, have them install a system that works for you and that is easy to maintain.
