Make-Up Organizer

I am so very excited to share this post b/c this is something I have been wanting to purchase 
for a long time! My friend Alison got one of these acrylic make up organizers for her birthday
back in March. When I saw it I absolutely fell in love and knew I would have to get one when 
I had some extra cash! 

I have a good amount of make-up. Nothing crazy or over the top, but definitely enough to need 
a good organizer. Up until this point I have had several make-up bags on my bathroom counter
with an additional three drawer plastic organizer from target underneath my bathroom sink. 

My birthday was last month and there was no question that this is what I decided to treat myself to. 
If you watch or keep up with the Kardashians (no pun intended) then you will know that 
the girls have these same type organizers in their bathrooms and have made these 
acrylic cubes very popular! 

There are several different types you can get based on how many drawers you want, 
if you want separators, or a top lid. 

I opted to get the four drawer with no separators or top lid on Ebay and it was on sale 
for $136 including shipping. 

I don't know the dimensions, but I will admit it is MUCH bigger than what 
I was expecting! I received this in the mail yesterday and when I opened my first thought 
was holy cow this thing is too big, but once I got everything stored away it works well. 

My makeup has a new home and it could not be more happy. 
Now instead of being hid away in a dark bag it gets to shine and be visible
to all!! yay! 

Drawer #1 is dedicated to face products. 
Foundations, concealers, highlighters, bronzers, and powders. 

Drawer #2 is dedicated to blushes. 
I think this is my favorite drawer! All the blushes just look so uniform and 
organized and colorful! 

Drawer #3 is dedicated to eyes. 
This drawer stresses me out a bit. It looks so messy and not uniform at all. 
I have mixed palettes and single shadows and I may end up changing some things 
around to have one drawer of palettes and another of singles and liners etc. 

 Drawer #4 is dedicated to skincare. 
I have put washes, masks, moisturizer, scrubs, etc is this drawer. 
Like I said earlier I am not convinced that I will keep this drawer like this. 
In the event that I get more makeup and palettes (which it will happen) I can see 
turning the bottom drawer (which is the largest) into a palette drawer and storing my skincare
products in my cabinets underneath. 

I am thrilled to have this nifty piece of organization in my life! It seems a little pricy, but 
it's great thick quality and will last a long time if taken care of! If interested in purchasing 
check out Ebay or Amazon and search for acrylic makeup organizers with drawers. 

Happy Organization. 


  1. Yay! Didn't you have so much fun organizing?!? I love it, it's a must have. I think it helps you use what you have to instead of going and buying more- or it does me at least :)
