Makeup & Beauty Tips on How to Organize Your Blushes

Share your best tips and tricks for organizing your blushes!  Share your best storage tips and how you keep everything within reach!

My Tips

  1. I always separate out the blushes that I always reach for, and then I keep them within reach or separated out so I can quickly find them when I need a go-to.
  2. If you have 384972934 blushes, you’ll probably need to do more micro-organizing and sort by brand, then color, or formula, then color.
  3. I think the best way is to organize by color or by undertone – so corals together, plums together, or warm-toned, neutral-toned, and cool-toned.  Think about how you choose what blush to pair with your look – are you looking for a color family, an undertone, a general lightness/darkness? Then I’d organize according to that.

    I don’t have a ton, so I depotted them into a Z-palette. Bronzers I keep together in one section of my makeup organizer in their original cases (Guerlain – how could I bear to depot them!)

  2. How I organize my blushes:

    Step one: have blush (this is an important step)

    Step two: stare at blush collection

    Step three: realize you have no idea the difference between peach and pink, and can barely tell peach and coral apart

    Step four: marvel over how massive most blush pans are

    Step five: get distracted by pets/internet

  3. I keep the powders and creams apart, and them sort them according to brand.

    I just have a handful of blushes, and they’re all pretty much in the same grouping (“dirty” pinks & plums), so they’re just kept in one bin, highlighters in another, and a third holds bronzers & contour products. I’m starting to outgrow my current set-up, so I plan to pull out all of my blush/bronzer combos, & split-pans, and place them in a fourth bin/basket.

    My blush collection is relatively small so it’s thrown in with my other face products like concealers and TMs and powders.

  6. BooBooNinja

    I have a relatively small makeup collection so beyond my inventory spreadsheet I don’t organize my blushes. I actually commented because I’m interested in what are the blushes you (Christine) *always* reach for. Cheers!

    I don’t have a lot of blushes necessarily, but in my drawer where I keep them, I separate them like this:
    Keep my everyday blushes near the front. (NYX’s Terra Cotta in the very front, for example.) But the other blushes I don’t reach for that often get separated by SEASON rather than brand or color, really. The brighter pinks and corals would be summer-spring, and my bright red and plum toned blushes are autumn-winter. Since I don’t own too many, this system seems to work for me!

  8. 1. Bronzers, highlighters or blushes – Different products into different drawers.

    2. Cream, liquid or powder.

    3. Brand.

    4. Shape of the packaging.

    5. Color.

    Well, that’s my current organization. Organizing is my meditation and I can to it again and again for hours… 😛
