Behold my “main makeup drawer.” Its contents include almost all of my lip products (with the exception of all my Lip Butter collection and Revlon’s Lipstain pen marker thingies.) That means alllll my Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains, Ultimate Liquid Lipcolors, Colorburst Lipsticks & glosses, and much more are housed in this drawer. It’s just one drawer from a set like this.

I just went through and also found some vintage lip products as well as a couple of eyeshadow palettes, liners, and brushes. Just so much stuff that I forgot a lot of it was even in there!

As I mentioned, the Lip Butters, and some other products aren’t in there. For some reason, I put them in the bathroom medicine cabinet with my foundations. No clue why, but that’s where they are. Most of my eye stuff (mascara’s, liners, shadows, brushes, and other accessories) make their home in an old school makeup/toiletry case, like this and this. I think they’re called train cases. In any case, it was my mom’s when she was young, and she gave it to me. It doesn’t have any drawers or separators, so everything is just piled in there. Not very efficient.

And then there’s my nail polish collection. I completely forgot about those! Man, I need a better solution! And preferably below $50. Or maybe just another set of drawers? In the meantime, I’m looking through the #makeuporganization and #makeupstorage tags on Instagram for inspiration.

Erin, from one of my favorite blogs, Scandalous Beauty, is going to use this solution from IKEA, but that’s far too pricey; especially considering I’m not a “beauty blogger” per se.

What storage system do y’all use? Do you like it? I’d love to hear what others use. It could help me figure this out. I have way more cosmetics products than I did just a couple of years ago.
