Cute and Fun Makeup Organizers Every Girl Should Have
Here’s a question: can you find your favorite lipstick for me? If you end up thinking where perhaps it’s time to declutter your vanity and use makeup organizers. I have here 17 makeup storage ideas you can buy for cheap or DIY if you want to be more creative. The most important thing is you save yourself time and hassle when finding your well-loved makeup products.
1. Magnetic Board
One of the ingenious makeup organizers, this DIY helps put all your makeup in one vertical space, and since you can mount this on the wall, you can save more space in your room or vanity. Tip: place all the makeup you wear on a daily basis on this magnetic board for easy access.
2. Acrylic Makeup Counter Organizers
One of the more common makeup storage ideas is by using acrylic boxes. Clear and compact, you can store just about all your cosmetic products and not have to worry about losing one in sight.
3. Ikea Alex Drawer
The Ikea Alex drawer is another makeup storage solution that is easy. You can organize your makeup in different categories from top to bottom, and you can also fit plastic containers for separate compartments. If you buy two, you can add a plank of thick wood, paint it with your favorite color, place it on top of the two drawers, and – tada – you have an instant home office desk. How neat is that?
4. Shoe Organizer
This hanging shoe organizer idea is excellent for dorms or small rooms. Just hang it by a corner or door and put your makeup into the pockets. You can also put labels on the clear plastic pouch for better organization.
5. Mounted Mason Jars
If you want to save money on your makeup organizers while still being artsy, you can do this mounted mason jar project! Mason jars are everywhere, and they’re incredibly cheap (or you can recycle similar-sized jars). Get a wooden plank, make it rustic by sanding it, coat it with a new paint, add screw metal clamps that fit the opening of the jars, and insert the mason jars. That’s it! You can attach hooks at the bottom too to organize your jewelry.
6. Candle Jars
Got some old candle jars lying around? Breathe new life into them by making them into usable and cute makeup storage. Glue the jars and place like makeup into each of the slots.
7. Ikea Makeup Vanity
This Ikea vanity hack with a clear glass top is another good way of organizing your makeup. The glass top allows for you to see the makeup underneath while you can use the shelf space to organize other makeup in clear plastic or acrylic makeup organizers.
8. Glitter Jars
For a fancy take on the mason jar DIY makeup storage, cover half or the entire jar with glue then roll it over glitter. Add some vinyl decals for extra cuteness.
