Organizing Cosmetics


For those who love cosmetics, there's always a new product that's a must-have. It may be the latest color collection from a favorite cosmetics brand or something amazing from a new brand. The problem is, these products take up space. Makeup lovers can end up with a drawer full of cosmetics that prevents them from storing other items. The good new is that there are many ways to organize cosmetics and free up some space.

Train cases/Makeup cases
A visit to the nearest cosmetics store or an online makeup store provides a number of options for storing makeup. One of them is a train case, or makeup case. These boxy containers often have foldout sections for small cosmetics like eyeshadows, as well an area for larger products, like foundations or skin care products.

Palettes
Another option is to buy palettes to store cosmetics. Some cosmetics companies, like MAC, sell palettes with a magnetized base. You can purchase products designed for storage in palettes. They come stored in metal trays so they will stick to the magnetized palette.
You may also choose to de-pot cosmetics you already own, then store them in the palette. Note that this doesn't work well with some baked eyeshadows, powders and blushes that don't come stored in a metal tray.

Other Containers You May Not Have Considered
A visit to your local art supply store or craft store can reveal some surprising storage options.
  • plastic storage drawers
  • Scrapbooking carts hobby bins
  • Modular storage bins
  • Containers used for storing beads or sewing supplies

These products are just a small sample of what's available at art and craft supply stores and websites. Some of these containers are also very economical, making them hard to resist.

If you're fed up with your disorganized makeup drawer, you're not alone. But the good news is that there are plenty of products and techniques you can use to organize your makeup and other cosmetics. Whether you use a train case, palettes, or plastic containers from the craft supply store, you'll free up some space and save time normally spent looking for your favorite products.
