Organizing My Beauty Products: A Work in Progress

My beauty collection has been growing, but my storage system has been staying the same. How do you fit tons of makeup into a small amount of space?

The answer? You don’t! You just get better storage!

I’m in the process of organizing all of my beauty products, getting rid of the old stuff and finding better ways to organize what I keep.

Above, the work in progress. The other day I went though all my makeup. What you see in this pictures is just makeup—no nail polish, skin care or hair care—and this is after I got rid of the stuff I didn’t want (which ended up being a lot of stuff since it’s been a while since I went through it.)

See those three storage containers near the top? I was cramming everything into the two containers on the right. No good. I bought the new bigger one on the left and moved everything to that one and the one in the middle.

Ahh, space!

I have everything in the above picture figured out now, but I’m not done yet. I still have to figure out the hair, skin and nail products.

I’ll have a video of the complete storage solution and beauty collection when I’m done!

  1. Haha! Let me know if you find a solution, Trisha! I also have too much stuff, not enough storage space. I’m soon going to have to move the hubby and the kids to the roof of my house!

  2. ohh can’t wait for your video! I try to purge my stash as often as possible, so I’ll give lots of things away. Right now everything fits but oh boy…when I go off to college I’m going to have to figure out how to downsize LOL. Looks like you have a pretty good system going so far 🙂
