Storing that makeup!


There are a ton of ways to store your makeup! You can spend a lot of money or not so much. I decided to go with the "not so much money" option. I would rather pay more for the makeup than the storage it goes in, but that's just me ;)

So the picture above is my makeup storage containers. I actually bought them at Walmart for about $8 each. I decided to buy 2, so that I can separate my makeup by the item: lip gloss, lipstick, mascara, eyeliner, etc.

I love the fact that it's clear, so I can see inside. The top of the containers are great to store taller makeup that may not fit in the drawers, such as: foundation and makeup brushes.

You can find them online, HERE. If you do buy them online from Walmart, you will have to buy them in a set of 4 which will cost $33.08. That makes them $8.27 each, which I think is a great price! It gets the job done without a hefty price..I think my husband really likes that idea. And really when you think about it..it's a win-win for my husband and myself...My husband didn't have to spend a lot of money to get them and I have more money to buy makeup! :)


So what do you use to store your makeup?

  1. CUTE! I think I would have to spray paint the white part though... like turquoise! :) I really need a storage system... desperately.

    1. I thought about doing that, but I decided to leave it white. It is on my bathroom vanity that my husband and I share, so I didn't want it to be "girly" for him. Plus, we like the clean, crisp look of white in our bathroom. You will have to keep me updated and let me know what you decide to do for your storage system! :)

    2. I love the idea of this! I don't have a lot of counterspace, so I'm trying to battle with that issue too. Thanks for the tip!!

    3. Thanks girl! If you get 2, you can stack them on top of each other..that might help a little bit with using up space.

  6. That is exactly what I've been wanting to buy for all of my makeup but haven't got around to it yet. I was actually going to buy the larger ones that stand on the floor because I have so much makeup and beauty products, lol. :)

  10. I have my makeup stored in our bedroom so for my husband's sake I try to keep it not looking so girly and store all of my stuff in a drawered cabinet.

    I did a post back in Feb on makeup storage and you can see a pic of what i'm talking about there since a drawered cabinet is my best description. hahaha ;)

    I have since changed around stuff on the top and the insides though but for the most part the makeup is still stored the same.

    xoxo,

  15. I like those! I wish we had a Walmart closer to SF they are such a pain to get to from the city and they are not big an sprawling like in the suburbs (which I miss) they are always 2 stories and crammed. Your probably going to laugh but I actually store mine in one of those under the bed containers... lol and it's filled with other organizers and I'm kind of outgrowing it!

    1. That stinks you don't have a Wal-Mart closer! I'm sure they sell these containers at Target as well. If you have one close to you, you should check it out!

  16. I love those separators! I have a retired tv stand as my makeup storage. There's a section with 3 shelves on the side that holds my nail polish and I put one of these 3 drawer storage thingys in where the dvd player would go. Then all my everyday makeup goes on top where the tv should be! lol! I love it~!

  18. Great idea. I don't have that much makeup. i kept them in a container for craft collection, it has 10 separators so my makeup will be not messed up. :D

    new follower anyway, if you don't mind, follow my blog.

  19. I have that EXACT same makeup box!! I got the set of 5 at Walmart and a set of 3 at Big Lots and I popped them on top of each other! The drawers are made to pop into each other which I like. At first I thought that a stack of 8 would be too high but its not, its fine, and if I need to put it away in cabinets then I assemble them into stacks of 4. I really love my box! Everything has its own drawer and its all layed out for me to see. I love that it doesnt take up much space, thats its slim, and that even though the drawers are pretty small, they really hold a ton!
