· Some great storage options to store all your beauty favourites! ·

If I can't find it, I can't use it...Being a beauty lover means buying and amassing A LOT of makeup and skin care products. Personally, I like to keep everything organized and easy to find, but this gets difficult depending on how much space I have available. Spreading out your products in different locations also means you are less likely to use them because you can't readily find what you need.

Below are a few storage options that keep my beauty items in check.


Acrylic Lipstick Storage

My need for easy organization brought me to acrylic storage. I purchased this acrylic lipstick holder from eBay (pictured below) to organize my growing population of glosses and lipsticks (which were previously stored in a basket). Now, I can easily pick out what colour I need and find that I use many older colours that I totally forgot about (since they used to be at the bottom of the basket). It also forced me to throw away a few that I knew I’d never use again, which freed up space.

Amazon also has affordable acrylic makeup storage options in various sizes, many offering free shipping.


Too Much Nail Polish? Try a Candy Jar!

I found this option on a Pinterest page and had to try it out. For a few dollars at Walmart, this large jar stores all my nail polish and manicure tools in an easy to find glass jar. Also a great space saver.


Glass Jars Makeup Brushes

Looking for cheap options to hold your makeup brushes? This vase is available in most home decor stores and even the Dollar Store! Fits all my brushes and tools for easy storage on my makeup vanity.

Lots of Beauty Products – Go Big!

For larger storage, I found these great options at TheMakeupOrganizer.com. This site sells medium to large acrylic organizers to store all your blushes, eye palettes, foundations and more. These would be great for storing and displaying skin care and other beauty products as well. A couple of these items are on my wish list. My favourites are the tiered fragrance towers, so fun!

How do you store your makeup and beauty products?

  • I want that spinning lipstick tower so badly! I think it would be so pretty to display my lippies. I need to get some more acrylic organizers but the prices can get crazy with shipping to Canada.

    • I know…if only I could build my own! The eBay unit was only $10 or so and shipped free!

  • These makeup organizers look awesome


  • I am definitely not as organized as you. I have a few acrylic organizers but not enough for my makeup collection. Great post! :]

  • Every time I look at these storage pieces, they are way overpriced. Is there a specific brand that I should look at?

    • I don’t know of a cheaper brand yet, but eBay and Amazon usually offer them cheaper than most retailers. I would start there. I agree, I love these pieces but the price is a turn off!

  • I loved your blog and your tips

  • this was so useful! love the lipstick organiser x
