Now that I have an actual drawer in my bathroom, it has been so easy for me to organize my makeup and KEEP it organized each and every day. Before I bought these bins, I literally just had all of my makeup shoved in there, no organization at all. I bought six small plastic bins from Target ($3 a piece) and organized by what I use things for: skin, face, eyes, lips, hair and then brushes/tools. I have been able to get ready faster each morning and leave the bathroom clean and tidy. Buy similar baskets here or check in Target stores! I also bought two bigger bins where I put all of my extra randoms (vitamins, nail polish remover, extra makeup/skin care products I have stoked up on from Ipsy, etc.) and one for all additional hair products that I might not use on a daily basis (detangler spray, heat protecting spray, scrunch spray, etc.). I am getting more and more into makeup, so I might need to organize my makeup even more at some point, but for now it all fits in these bins!
If I didn’t have drawers in my bathroom I would definitely be purchasing some these clear storage makeup drawers, probably a couple to stack on top of each other and then similarly organizing by type of makeup, or where the makeup is used. Amazon has a ton of great beauty storage options, so you can check more out there.

My makeup is always such a mess all over my vanity and bathroom sink! I definitely need to organize it like this! Thanks for the tips! xxx

I need to do this! I cleaned out my makeup drawer recently, but I need something like the storage drawers, seriously! Such a great idea!

I wish my bathroom had drawers! It’s pretty darn small so I just keep most of my brushes in a tumbler and the rest of my daily makeup on a shelf!

Wow, now THIS is an inspirational post. You’re so organized! Everything I don’t wear on a daily basis is in a state of near chaos. You’re my new storage role model! 😉

Love this! I did something similar before Grant was born….now I have to keep these goodies up high 🙂

This is so perfect I wish my bathroom had drawers.

Great post. I love how neat and tidy it looks! My makeup is such a mess. It’s literally everywhere hahaha. You’ve inspired me to organize it a bit.

great organization! I just throw all my stuff in my makeup bag and pull it out each morning. I should probably have it more organized! and I am really loving the new site design! 🙂
RachelNovember 21, 2013 at 8:39 AM
Thanks Kimmie! I like it too, more minimal clean look 🙂

Love it! It’s all laid out so you can see everything! I keep mine in my MAry KAy Roll-up case. It has five compartments but it’s no where near enough storage! There are no drawers in my bathroom so maybe some pretty baskets?

I barely have any makeup but what I do have is horribly unorganized. I should do something like this!
AlyssaNovember 21, 2013 at 9:15 AM
I wish I had a drawer to keep my makeup it–I’d be so much more organized!
AshleyNovember 21, 2013 at 9:48 AM
If I don’t keep my makeup separated + organized, I wouldn’t be able to find (and thus use!) half my makeup! My friends make fun of me because I’m apparently “stocked like Sephora.” What can I say? I like makeup. It’s a fun time. 🙂
Great post, Rachel!
RachelNovember 21, 2013 at 9:52 AM
Haha, I LOVE IT! I am definitely not at that point yet, but with the way I’ve been buying makeup lately, I might be there soon 😉 Makeup is a good time and I like having my go-tos and some other fun things to try for date night/weekends, etc. 🙂

Love how you have everything so organized! I keep most of my stuff underneath the sink in makeup bags/baskets but have my everyday items in my cabinet above!

i definitely need to do this…all mine is mashed into a drawer and i don’t even use half of it!
RachelNovember 21, 2013 at 6:13 PM
I use clear acrylic drawers for mine (I only have one skinny tiny drawer). I love that you are organized! haha it makes beauty products look so much better and easier to find

I definitely need to take a page from your book and organize my makeup drawer…it’s in a sad state of affairs at the moment and your organization makes mine look like even more of a disaster! I definitely need to get my hands on some of those amazing organizers!

Fantastic, I could do with a drawer for stuff like this!! Looks all tidy and easy to find xx

Ha! Oh man. My makeup is “organized” (and I use that word very loosely…) in a desktop organizer, you know, those sturdy, colorful cardboard ones you see at like Marshalls and TJ Maxx? Yeah? No? Yeah… it’s not the best. Hypothetically, it’s supposed to be organized, but when I’m rushing to put my make up on in the morning, I just end up throwing each little compact into whatever slot in the organizer it fits into. Not where it’s supposed to go. Ha, I think that isn’t the organizers fault, but mine… but I think your system would work a lot better for me!
RachelNovember 22, 2013 at 2:49 PM
Yes I know what you are talking about! I actually got one of those from Home Goods and originally used it to organize, but I kept getting eyeliner and foundation all over it LOL. Whoopsies 🙂 And yes, I had the same problem, I would just throw stuff in there randomly and nothing would be sorted. I swear this works! I start with skin (wash my face, lotion, acne stuff, blah blah) move onto skin (foundation, concealer, powder), then move onto eyes and everything goes back into the correct basket! Didn’t know it could be so easy to stay organized, I love it 🙂 The only thing I can actually keep organized and clean in life!
