Beauty 411: Makeup Organization $50 & Under

March 9, 2017

Whether you have a lot of makeup or just a few products, you need to keep it organized. I’m constantly reorganizing and changing things up, but my tool boxes stay the same.

There are so many different options for storing your makeup. I like acrylic organizers because they are sturdy, easy to clean, and I can actually see my makeup.

Acrylic boxes and makeup storage in general can cost major bucks. Like $200+ for clear box. Ummmm. No. I turned to my good friends, Amazon & Google, for some cheaper options and I hit the mother load.

*when I found #2, it was under $50, but Amazon played me and changed the price. Rude. Forgive me.*

Here is my vanity set up. I have 1 and 3 from the box graphics stacked as well as the rotating lipstick tower, the gloss holders, and the eye liner/lip liner holders. I also have the striped brush holder and the beauty sponge holder.

The Muji drawers (#3) are not very deep. I have my single eye shadows and some palettes in them. They are great for that for liquid lipsticks and glosses too. 

You can also find acrylic organizers like these at TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Home Goods, and The Container Store.

P.S. I now have my eye on this

    I love how you have everything set up! Looks awesome! I especially love your lipstick tower! Lol. Most of my lippies are stashed away in my bottom drawer storage underneath my table in an acrylic organizer. 😁
    Also, I looooove where you keep your brushes!

      Thank you! I saw the brush holder in the school supply section and it was like a lightbulb went off. It was so cheap too!

      Yes you do! I couldn’t believe I found one for such a good price. So many of them are $100+

    Funny story about makeup organization, last year I was looking for storage options and my hubby was 100% against acrylic organizers. Fast forward this year I got one and he was like “I love it, it looks so organized”. If only I’d gotten it from the beginning LOL I have a similar storage unit, and I love the striped box for the brushes!!

    I love your set up and vanity! I have some acrylic drawers and lip stick holders and I love them. I got all mine on Amazon for a decent price too! I’ve always secretly wanted to replace them with muji drawers though haha!

    • loubsandlips March 13, 2017 at 2:40 am

      Thank you! I like the lipstick holders, but muji drawers would be so much easier. Mine would be to the ceiling though haha
