How do you store your eyeshadow palettes?

I recently freed up two drawers in my makeup storage chests for Natasha Denona and Pat McGrath palettes, which were starting to landslide on my closet shelves! I have other palettes stacked or arranged in containers in my closet (ones I might use again, personally) and then some that are in larger bins (often palettes I’m keeping but aren’t ones I expect to return to personally).

I like mail/file sorter things for palettes! I have a wall-mounted one for most of them and a small acryllic one inside my desk drawer for the palettes that don’t get used as much. The only ones that don’t fit are UD x GoT and Glamlite Cake, so they’re both vertically standing on my desk, bookshelf style.

Any way I can! LOL! I have a lucite drawer with hippies and other makeup and the palettes are in two towers on the right and left of this drawer. Older palettes (or rather off season ones) are in the trunk on top of which all of this sits. Not pretty, but without any space that’s the best I can do for now.

I have a massive toolbox called Fat Max. I use it for eyeshadow palettes and my z palettes mostly. It also houses a small foundation, lash, and eyeliner collection. I had to get a separate tool box just for lippie! #addiction

I have an overfilled folding storage box from IKEA where I stand up my palettes and balance them against my cosmetic bags for face products, lipsticks and single eyeshadows. I used to store them all nicely displayed on a little bathroom shelf but then I had to babyproof!! Lol I am not about to let a child pull down all that makeup.

Under my vanity table I have an angled book display shelf, like they have in children’s libraries. It’s nice because I can stack the palettes like books and see all the spines looking up at me.

Where to begin…my entire sock drawer, which is a standard sizes, long width drawer is filled to capacity with e/s palettes. Also, I have several standing book style on top of that same dresser, and a gazillion MAC Pro Pan quads I put together in an old MAC Lipglass container, several more larger palettes, mostly UD, in a sterlite container next to that dresser. Clearly I own far too much eyeshadow!

I was originally going to limit my makeup collection to fit within MUJI acrylic containers, but my Pat McGrath obsession got the better of me. I stack my Pat McGrath palettes in a tower next to my storage containers, and label them on their side with a label maker. It’s a precarious situation, so I’m looking for better solutions!

I have two large bags – one for smaller palettes, like quads, quints and singles and another bag for larger palettes. Not ideal. Even my husband remarked to me this morning, that I really need a couple of drawers in our ensuite bathroom to hold them all.
