Make the Most of Your Space With These DIY Makeup Organizers
Having a gorgeous collection of makeup products is great, but do you know what is even better? Having a gorgeous way to organize your makeup, of course! If you are a makeup addict and own more than enough to fill the shelves of a beauty store, then you need some clever makeup storage solutions.
Forget those old and clunky makeup bags and discover new, creative ways to revamp your makeup vanity table. How? Read on for some great DIY makeup organizers that are fun and easy to create for absolute beginners.
Repurpose Some Empty Jam Jars
Are you a jam lover? Great! Next time you finish a jar of that yummy strawberry compote, make sure you don't throw it out.
Give it a thorough wash, wrap the edges with some colorful ribbon, and you'll have a shabby-chic holder for your makeup brushes and accessories! Want to make it even cooler? Then, try hanging the pots to your bedroom or bathroom walls for a super unique effect.
Turn That Old Cake Stand Into a Lipstick Heaven
You might have seen this little trick used for jewelry, but it works just as well with makeup in particular with lipsticks, mascaras, and anything that has a long, thin shape.
Dust down your gran's old cake stand or vintage crockery set, and pop it on your makeup table. It will now be the perfect new home of your ever-growing makeup collection.
Give a Second Lease of Life to Your Shoe Organizer
Do you have one of those over-the-door shoe organizers laying around your house? Then, do not throw them out yet: you can transform them into fun and easy ways to display and organize your makeup.
Slide your makeup products in each sleeve, trying to keep them as coherent as possible (lipsticks with lipsticks, concealers with concealers, eyeliners with eyeliners, and so on). You'll end up with the most colorful, attractive makeup display ever!
Get Creative With an Unused Bookcase
Sometimes, our attics, basements, and garages can be real treasure troves. So, why not take a look in there and see if you can find a small, old, and unused bookcase sitting there, gathering dust?
Give it a wipe, or even a fresh coat of spray paint, and transfer it to your bedroom. But don't fill it with books: add your favorite makeup pieces, instead! Want to be even better organized?
Get yourself a few of those very inexpensive, clear storage boxes that you can find at most stores. Place a couple on each of your bookcase shelves (depending on its size, of course) and use them to store your makeup. Simple, smart, and super cheap.
Take Your Organization to the Next Level With a Glass Table
If your makeup collection is gigantic, you need to have a clear view of what you have and need each time you sit in front of the mirror to do your makeup. Why not opt for a table with a glass top?
To achieve this, you will need a table of any size, a glass panel, and a few clear plastic containers. Fill the containers with all your makeup products, place them in between your tabletop and the glass panel, and voila! A minimal, elegant way to have all your makeup heroes always in sight.
Hang Out With Your Makeup Besties
Are you struggling to find any surface space anywhere in your bedroom or bathroom? If you are sharing your room or apartment with other people, you might not be able to devote an entire section of a room to your huge makeup range.
Think... vertical. Meaning, take advantage of the walls. You can create some makeup storage solutions that do not take up any space at all. For example: buy a magnetic board, hang it to the wall, and place all your makeup products on it, one next to the other.
Not only will you discover that you actually have so much more space than you'd imagined. You will also always find exactly the right makeup product that you are looking for.
No more rushing around trying to locate that glittery eye shadow that's probably ended right at the bottom of your dresser drawer. Everything that you need and love is right there in front of your eyes.
Give Coffee a Whole New Meaning
Is your collection of makeup accessories getting a bit out of hand and you don't know what to do with makeup brushes anymore? Finding clever ways to store them is super important if you don't want to lose or damage them. Have you ever tried coffee?
No, we're not suggesting that you prepare yourself a latte (though please go ahead, if you like!). Grab a bag of coffee beans, pour it into a container (an old plant pot would work just fine), and stick all your makeup brushes in it.
In pretty much a minute, you'll have a fantastic makeup brush holder that is bound to surprise your friends. See? Quicker than making a cup of coffee!
