I spent all my money on "other things" for so long that the makeup just piled up on a shelf in my linen closet. I also kept stuffing more and more into my makeup bag until it couldn't close anymore. I was so frustrated with the disorganization I resorted to only using the top few items in my makeup bag and neglecting the rest.
I finally (!) decided I needed some organization. So I headed down to Walmart, bought a Sterilite 5 drawer storage tower, and some organizer baskets. I have a bit of OCD so organizing is fun for me; but I'm also lazy so I rarely do it. I guess the laziness usually wins.
The storage tower was $17.97 and the 3 3-packs and 1 2-pack of organizers were $1.17 each. So for under $25 with tax I'm set!
Oh, and I have something else for my nail polish collection. Unfortunately it would not all fit in one of these on its own, much less sharing it with makeup.

|The storage trays|
As you can see the inserts fit perfectly, almost as if they were made to fit in the drawers (they weren't though, I just got lucky).
The top right has cream shadows, gel and cream eyeliners, and eyeshadow pencils.
The middle has my makeup brushes and a tube of Too Faced Shadow Insurance that snuck in there.
The bottom drawer has pen and pencil eyeliners.
The bottom left has foundations and concealers.
The bottom right has face powders and primers.
The bottom left has eyeshadow palettes.
The bottom right has blushes.
The middle is a random bronzer I never wear and Maybelline Dream Mousse shadows I got from Dollar Tree.
The front basket has a few lip products that aren't currently in my purse (I have about 10 times as many in my purse).
I purchased the Sterilite 5 drawer tower at Walmart, but I don't see in their website or even the Sterilite website. Maybe it was discontinued and what I bought was just old stock. It is similar to to this one, but it has 7 drawers instead.
Thank you for reading and have a great day/night/whatever!
