Talk about a mess! It’s been several months since I’ve organized my makeup, and this was my first “free” weekend in quite a bit, so I thought I’d spend the afternoon re-organizing all of the makeup I’ve accumulated in the past few months. I use an assortment of clear containers from The Container Store for the majority of my stash. I do have a few plastic organizers from Ikea, as well as metal silverware drawers from various stores like Target and Ross. I usually store all of my accumulated products in a shoe box-sized plastic container with the intent to “sort later.”

This post just shows most of my non-MAC products nicely put in their little homes :) I didn’t take pictures of some of my lower end body products (like Bath & Body Works), since it hasn’t changed at all since last time I did a collection post! My MAC organization coming soon!


Givenchy/Guerlain/YSL


Cilnique, Lancome, Estee Lauder


Chanel, Dior


Left Container houses brands like Smashbox, Urban Decay, Jouer, Tarte, etc.
Right Bin houses all of my self-tanning, bronzing, suncare products (shoe box-sized bins)


All sorts of random lipglosses/lipsticks (shoe box-sized bin)


Perfumes I don’t use (ha!)


LUSH Stash (large bin)


Extra skincare products (large bin)


Nail polishes galore (each bin is shoe box-sized)
