My Makeup Stash!

Several months ago I bought a Sterilite 5 drawer thing to store my makeup in.

I figured it had more room than I could ever use.  Oh how wrong I was!  My stash has grown considerably from what it used to be.  Look at this post and compare with the following pictures to see how much crap I've bought in a pretty short period of time.  Yeah, I need to slow down and use what I have.

First Drawer
The far left basket is all my eyeliners, the middle is all my brushes, the top right is single eyeshadows and the bottom left has cream eyeshadows in pots and pencil and gel eyeliners.

Second Drawer
The top left has most of my eyeshadow palettes and some mascaras that don't seem to fit anywhere else. The bottom left basket has loose pigments and shadows that are not indie. The right basket has smaller eyeshadow palettes, duos, and trios.

Third Drawer
The top left basket has concealers, foundations, and powders.  The bottom left has highlighters and primers.  The right basket is all blushes.

Fourth Drawer
The top left basket has lipsticks and a random bottle of brush cleaner.  The bottom left has lipglosses and the right basket is all indie eye shadow.

Fifth Drawer
This is a random drawer. It has my Naked palette and a Sleek palette, random samples, and the rest are things I don't use very often.

How do you guys store your makeup?  If you have posts about it please share them!

Thank you for reading and have a great day/night/whatever!


  1. Great post! I love seeing how people organize their makeup and too get ideas. I need to get some of those longer baskets!

  2. I have a similar sterilite thingy...I need to get some baskets like those though! That would help immensely. I think you've just inspired my Saturday to become an "organize makeup" day!

    Hope you are keeping cool in Texas! Today will be a record for me here....83! The warmest it's been since I moved...hahahaha.

  3. I need to get some more drawers myself!

  4. I have most of mine still (somewhat uncomfortably crammed) in a train case. I just needed to move out all of my nail supplies and brushes. I did a post on the brushes recently:

  5. @Miranda- I love stash and organization pictures too. I think I'm just nosy, hehe.

    @Shimmer- The baskets were such an awesome find. It just so happened that they fit perfectly. 83! I wish it was 83 here. That is practically cold, haha.

    @Vijaya- I'm almost out of room, too!

    @Miss Bekka- Your brush storage is super cool! I never would have thought of that.

  6. Oh what a great idea. I have all of my sad little collection in a three-compartment organizer on my counter and then all over a pull-out drawer, haha. I'll have to look for something like this!

  7. I think I need to do this, mine are all stored on a computer desk - you can see it here -and I've got a LOT more since then. I pretty much have no room at all.

  8. I have the 7 drawer! Mine is overflowing. :)

  9. This is a great idea for storage. I currently use traincases, which is irritating as I must dig through them to find stuff. Thanks for the post, I may need to look in to something like this!


Thank you so much for your comments! I appreciate them all and read every one!
