Makeup/Nail Polish Storage

Lipstick/Lipgloss Storage
I purchased this organizer at Marshalls.  It is supposed to be an office supply storage unit that rotates it, but I found it was very handy to store all of my lip products.  After trying many different ways to organize these (i.e. by color, lipsticks vs. lip glosses) I decided the most asthetic and less chaotic way for me was to organize them by brand.  The colors are so much easier to find now!

Because I love to coupon, I have aquired many back-ups in addition to my already large stash.  I have sorted all the eyeliners/lipliners I have duplictes of as well and put them in a little container so that as I run out of a color from my main collection I can just replace it.  Most of my duplicate items are from collecting many Urban Decay collections.  The little leather box that is holding my liners is a Michael Kors box one of my watches came in.  The larger leather box is from Target.  The little round box was given to me as a container for a gift.

Countertop Storage
This is my go-to area on my bathroom counter.  As you can see I have a rectangular marbe piece that holds containers for lipliners, eyeliners, and primers, and two palettes of drugstore eyeshadows I have depotted and am trying to use up.  (I have even hit pan on some of these! Yay!)  To the sides there are two more containers.  Both hold lipglosses I am working on finishing up as well.  Each glass container holds my makeup brushes--one for face brushes, the other for eye brushes.  The small leather containers are also Michael Kors boxes repurposed.

Wall Storage
I purchased some plastic containers from the Container Store and used three 3M Command Strips per container to attach to my wall.  They hold up very well and I am able to store my concealer, foundation, finishing powders, blushes I am working on finishing, Fix-+, them without taking up counter space.

Here is what my entire counter looks like from afar.

Middle Drawers
I have three drawers down the middle of my bathroom cabinets.  In the first is where I keep all of my Loreal Infallible eyeshadows.  (I love these!) I also hold small everyday makeup tools in a rectangular storage here (think scissors, Clarasonic charger, eyebrow shapers etc..).  I also took three of the Michael Kors box tops and organized all of my Mac Paint Pots and Maybelline Color Tatoos (which I used as eyeshadow bases) and stored them in there.  The rest is night stuff, my husbands hair wax, lint remover...nothing special really :).

I keep all of my hair tools in my second drawer. 

I keep palettes, a Sketch Diary (with swatches of all of my eyeshadows by color), and two makeup bags full of fall/winter nail polishes (yes I have organized my nail polish stash to this degree!).  The lipstick bag is full of Back 2 Mac ready containers.  I like to store them there so that I can quickly grab it and pack it for the next time I visit a city with a Pro Mac store that will accept depotted eyeshadow containers. 

Nail Polish Rack
I have organized this rack to include all my glitters, nail art polishes, spring/summer colors, and universal colors.  I love being able to see everything right off the bat!
