Makeup storage

This post is long overdue! I haven’t shared my setup since we moved over 3 years ago! I had scheduled this to post last year, but kept bumping it. Before I knew it the year was over. I thought it might be the perfect first post of 2020. Otherwise who knows when or if I’ll ever get around to sharing it?

I contemplated retaking the photos since it looks a little different now. The setup is the same. The way I have everything organized is the same. I did however accumulate a lot more product last year. Then I went on a decluttering spree and gave a lot away. But it’s really less about what’s inside the storage units and more about the actual storage. So I decided not to retake the photos.

Inside my closet I have 2 Alex drawers. The left set of drawers contains skin care products and nail polish. The right set of drawers contains face products, samples, and empties. I have everything organized in these baskets which can be found at Walmart. I’ve gone back and forth with whether or not to switch them out for the acrylic organizers, but decided to stick with the baskets. First of all, they are a lot more affordable. Second, I can easily add on by visiting my local Walmart. Third, it’s so much easier to reach products in the back by sliding the front basket out and the back basket forward. The acrylic organizers might look much nicer, but I have a feeling they’d be more of a hassle for me. You can see how I have my drawers organized below. I decided to share just a few photos so that this post isn’t so photo-heavy.

My toolbox contains lip and eye products. This was my original setup. Back when I first started this was my only storage unit. I outgrew it pretty fast. If you look back on my posts you might even read about how I swore I’d never need more than this. Oops?

My vanity consists of 2 Alex drawers and a table topper. The left set of drawers contains makeup and the right set of drawers contains props and such. The very first drawer on the left side contains brushes, the second drawer contains essentials, the first drawer contains my favorites, the fourth drawer contains makeup removing products as well as brush cleansers, and the last drawer contains new products that I need to test.

I try to keep the top of my vanity clear. Especially since that’s where I take my photos. I’ve since added 2 small baskets. One for products I recently used so that I can mention it in my blog post. And one for products I’m currently testing out. I plan to replace the mirror and chair this year. Other than that everything else will remain the same. This is what works for me.
