Sephora Brand Midnight Train Case ($90.00)Train cases are a great way to store a lot of your makeup in one compact, portable space. Unfortunately (fortunately?), I’ve long ago outgrown my train case, but I do find it exceptionally good for traveling. It’s hard on the outside, which means it’ll protect the goodies on the inside. You can arrange the dividers as you need to custom fit your storage needs.

Sephora Brand Makeup Artist Brush Belt Make Up Artist Brush Belt ($42.00) This is a nifty way to store all of your brushes in one fell swoop. You can wear it around your waist for easy grab and go. You might even feel like a bit of a super hero :) If you don’t have quite as many brushes as the image above, you can probably roll it up, too!Otherwise, if yours is so full, you just fold it in half and call it a day.

Confessions of a Beauty Addict: When your collection looms before you, growing by leaps and bounds, and you have no self-control to stop it from exploding, that is when you know you are a beauty addict.  I spent tonight going through boxes of products I hadn’t yet organized to come up with a better system than a bunch of cardboard boxes scattered about my living room!  I didn’t include a few things, like my MAC eyeshadow/blush palettes and regular, everyday products since they’re totally strewn all over my bathroom countertop, but there’s only so much one girl can organize in one night!

We all know I use a TV stand/dining cabinet as my main makeup storage, so some of this is old, but I did have to find homes for a whole lotta stuff… which means plenty of new things to see.

Share your photos of your collection! Send images to us, or simply link to them in the comments.

I originally made this spreadsheet for myself quite awhile ago (I think back in 2005!), and I’ve shared it before in a few online communities, but for some reason haven’t shared it with my dearest readers! Blasphemy! And thus, I offer you a spreadsheet to help keep track of your makeup purchases if you so wish… Download it here!

If you decide to use, let me know! :)

Skyler tells us about her very enviable storage solution…

I call this my “Personalized MAC Pigment/Glitter Rack.”

I have an extremely handy grandfather, Doug, and I approached him in the summer about making me a customized pigment rack. I had searched high and low for one to buy, on eBay and otherwise, but nothing suited my needs (or my wallet). They were either too big or too small, too ugly or too cheap. Since I knew Doug, a woodworker, had made tons of furniture for my family members over the years, I figured a pigment rack would not be out of his range. Of course, he had no idea what the hell a pigment was but he was very willing to make it for me. I wanted something high-quality, sturdy, easily accessible, and something that could withstand my day-to-day use. I wanted to be able to see each pigment colour as well. I gave him a rough blueprint and he ran with it. He measured the cut-outs with an actual pigment jar and I asked for additional spots so that my collection could grow and still fit into the unit.
