Affordable Makeup Storage Ideas

Organizing your makeup doesn't have to be complicated or expensive.  I thought I'd share how I have things set up in my bathroom to give you some ideas.  Most of what I use is under $9 per item and these items (or similar) can be found in Walmart, Target, TJ Maxx, and on Amazon.  Pick and choose which pieces work well for what you own.

Brushes and Lip Balm are in these:
madesmart interlocking organizers, $8.99 for a set (I'd suggest Rubbermaid since you can just get the sizes you need unless you know you'll use all of these sized containers)

Blush, bronzer and highlights are in one of these:
Rubbermaid Drawer Organizer, 9 by 6 by 2-Inch, $3.19

Eyeshadows are in one of these:
Rubbermaid Drawer Organizer, 9 by 3 by 2-Inch, $4.01

Eye primers, Eyebrow products, mascara, eyeliner, and lip liners are in this:
InterDesign Rain Clear Cosmetic Trio Cups, $8.99

Lipstick, lipgloss, lip primer are in this:
byAlegory Acrylic Lip Organizer (Lip Gloss, Lipstick, Large Based Lipsticks) 23 Spaces, $16.99

Non skid lining:
Con-Tact Grip Premium Drawer Liner, $7.44

I prefer these open containers versus having structured cubby holes. I'm the type of person that will try to fill empty spaces, so I prefer to be able to spread things apart or push things together as needed. I do use the lipstick organizer with a set 23 spaces, but I rotate this selection a lot with the rest of my lipsticks that I don't have in the bathroom. The tallest row in the lipstick organizer always stays the same though, I don't have any additional lip glosses or tall products to rotate into those spaces.

Some other organizers I like and use in other places:
madesmart 3-Inch x 9-Inch Drawer Organizer, $3.99
madesmart 6-Inch x 9-Inch Drawer Organizer, $4.99

I hope this gives you some inspiration on some ways you can organize your items.  Don't think that you have to purchase the IKEA Alex drawers, those $50+ makeup boxes, or the $30+ drawer inserts.  If you like how the clear acrylic organizers or the IKEA drawers look, I am by no means saying there is anythnig wrong with that.  I just wanted to give an alternative way to do things for people who either don't like that or don't want to spend so much.
