5 Ways to Store Makeup

If you are anything like me, then you don’t know where to put all of your makeup! Here are five tips to simplify your makeup storage

1. Create Your Own Lipstick Palette

Cosmetic tins

Beauty.com sells aluminum tin pans at a very affordable price. Take a spoon and scoop out the waxy lipstick. Melt the lipstick by holding the spoon a safe distance above a candle, making sure not to boil the wax. Pour the melted wax into the tin. Don’t forget to label each tin with the lipstick brand and name. Place the tins in a Zpalette for easy storage

2. Store Your Eyeliner

Have a lot of eyeliners? Store them in ArtBin’s clear pencil compartment. This is a great way to separate your dark eyeliner from your lighter colors. This is great for storing lip pencils as well.

3. Organize Your Polish

Store nail polish in The Container Store’s Hobby Boxes here. The containers are clear, so you can see what polish you are reaching for. They are also not too big, preventing your polish from tipping over, which is generally bad as it can lead to messy spills and separation of polish compartments.

4. Keep Your Make Up Brushes in a Mug

Yes, I keep mine in a mug. I could buy a special jar for them, but why spend the extra money?

5. Depot Your Eyeshadows


Try depotting shadows and putting them in a Zpalette. Here is a simple way to depot easily. It requires parchment paper and a frying pan. Cut off a piece of parchment paper, big enough to protect your eyeshadow container from the pan. Turn your heat to medium and let the pan heat up for up to 3 minutes. Place the parchment paper carefully onto the pan and then place your eyeshadow container on it to melt the glue that hold the pan in the makeup pot or palette.  M.A.C. eyeshadows are often the easiest to remove using this method.

Where do you keep all your supplies without having to spend minutes scrambling into a bag to search for them?
