Here is how I keep my makeup organized... the pretty way!
I keep the makeup on this bookcase from Target (it's on the left side on the top and middle shelf), along with some office supplies, a candle, and some milk glass of course.
Here is a closer view of the middle shelf. I added the smaller jar after I took the first photo... I had just painted the bottom with gold paint, and it was drying! I kept the larger makeup brushes in the bigger glass vase (actually a candle holder from the dollar store) and the smaller eye shadow brushes in the small jar. To make the gold jar, I taped around the middle of a clean jar, brushed on a few coats of gold acrylic paint, and removed the tape. So simple! The plastic drawers are just regular Sterilite small drawers (similar here) with glitter on the drawer pulls. I painted the pulls with gold paint, then topped each one with several coats of a mixture of rose gold glitter and Mod Podge. It took some patience to get the glitter to cover the pulls evenly, but it eventually worked! These drawers hold small skincare products, eye makeup, and foundation.
This is a closer view of the top shelf of the bookcase. I found the clear acrylic box at a thrift store, and lined the bottom with a monogram printable from Chicfetti. I keep lipstick, lip gloss, etc. in the box because it's the perfect size to stand the lipsticks upright. I originally got the small brown tray to use as a remote control holder, but it was too small so I used it as makeup storage instead. It works perfectly for storing eye shadow palettes and powder foundations.
And there you have it! I try to keep everything organized like this all the time, but obviously some days are better than others. The key is finding a system that works best for YOU!
