How To Organise Your Makeup

Being a beauty blogger means that I get to work with many wonderful brands and of course that means that I get sent lots of lovely products to test, review and feature on here for you guys!

I’m one of them people that likes to keep everything neat and clean so I organise all my beauty and make-up products in brand, size and colour order – hello Monica from Friends!

Acrylic Drawers

These are absolutely perfect for storing your products, not only do they look great on your beauty shelves but they’re clear so you can easily scan and find what you’re looking for quickly.
I know a lot of people say they’re really expensive BUT I’ve done some searching and below you’ll find some options at great prices! 🙂

Makeup Brush Holders

I ALWAYS separate my makeup brushes from my make-up products!
I think I must have a little problem as I LOVE keeping things organised hahaha, my collection seems to be ever-growing so I have quite a few brush holders – one for foundation brushes, one for eyeshadow brushes….you get the point!
They’re also really great for storing your lip glosses as they’ll remain upright so things won’t get messy…..

Nail Polish Trays

Very similar to the Acrylic Drawers however these are better for your nail polishes and even single eyeshadows/paint pots as they can easily be cleansed if any nail polish spills on them!

Don’t think you need to go and spend a fortune on storage, have a look around your house too – old jars, tins, candle jars and even old Nutella jars can be used – add some glitter to them for a cute touch too! (Post Coming Soon)

Below you’ll see some of my picks that are all UNDER £20!

You all know that I LOVE reading your comments so let me know what you think! 🙂

    Great ideas. You sound like you could be sorting out mu collection and tidying it up, as mine is a total mess at the moment.I organise it one way and then change my mind half way through.

    It’s good to be organized especially when makeup’s concerned as we use them directly on the face. Reading this post makes me want to go clean up my messy makeup corner – though I don’t have much, haha! Thank you for the motivation sweetie =) xx

    This is way too helpful, we always feel like our products are organized for a day, and then go back to being a total mess lol

    I need to find space for my stuff but we live in a small home (1400sf) and it’s mostly baby stuff now. LOL! I am hoping to clear some space up as my work area soon, hopefully things will be more organize then

    NOMG! Look at those perspex dividers! I’ve been wanting to super organise my make-up drawer or rather have everything in the one place and not scattered wherever I can find room. I found a lipstick holder thing on ebay once – I’m still watching it and intend on buying it. Soon…

    The photo above is the perfect storage!!! I keep mine in a big drawer (I don’t have many products yet!) and my brushes in a holder! I feel like everything is on top of each other that way, but in a neat way! haha!

    Great post Layla! 🙂 <3
