Almost exactly one year ago I wrote this blog post to show how I organized my makeup. Since then, my makeup collection has changed and grown, so I decide to write a new post about my current makeup collection and organization. I personally love watching these kind of videos on YouTube and wanted to share my own version on this blog. Just like those YouTube videos, I should probably write a disclaimer that I am not trying to brag about how much makeup I have. I simply love makeup and organizing, so this is my way of bringing those two things together. So let's get started!
Here is a look at all of the makeup I had stored in my first Muji 5-Drawer Acrylic Case.
And this is a look at all of the makeup I had crammed in my makeup bag that I use whenever I put on makeup.
And lastly, here is some of the newer makeup that I have recently purchased, which pushed me to buy another Muji case so that I could store everything all together.
And here it is, all put together in one big pile, along with both Muji cases. It wasn't until I had it all laid out that I realized just how much I had!
In order to organize everything, my first step was to pull out everything that I use on a daily basis and put that into my makeup bag so that I can grab it whenever I'm ready to put on makeup.
Next, I started filling up drawers by category. So my large eyeshadow palettes went together, my lip products went together, and so on.
And this is the final product. It looks much better, doesn't it?
Next I will show you a picture of each drawer so you can see how they turned out. I won't go over every product in the drawers, but the pictures are clear enough that you can see pretty much everything in them.
So those are all of the drawers, one by one. Here is a picture of how I have them set up in my bathroom along with my makeup mirror, brushes, and other beauty items.
While I'm on the topic of beauty and makeup, I figured it only made sense to include a picture of my nail polish collection as well, which are stored on the bottom shelf of my linen closet outside of my bathroom.
You'll see that I have a jar of mini polishes on the left along with various methods of polish remover. In the center is a really handy organizer that I found at Target a few years ago. It works perfectly for keeping all of my polishes lined up and organized. On the right-hand side you can see a glimpse of Bath & Body Works lotions and shower gels along with a few other brands.
And that's the end! I hope you enjoyed this tour through my makeup collection and hopefully you either spotted some products you'd like to add to your own collection or possibly you got an idea or two on how to store your makeup.
My next post will be a tour of my closet for more organizational ideas!
