Organize on a budget!

Hello Darlings!

I have so much make-up and other beauty products yet not the $$$ to but the storage I want!

I watch a lot of bloggers/vloggers/youtubers and they all seem to have this beautiful dresser stand that they store all their make-up in.

I want one of these one day and you can buy them on Ikea here. It is really nice and sturdy so it is worth the money and in reality it is not that bad.

I am hoping to get one in the next year or so.

I was shocked to see that ii is more expensive on amazon.

Until then I have come up with a pretty good solution.

But First let’s take a look at the mess I had before hand!

All hair and face products I had no room for in my bathroom!
My grams got my this awesome vintage makeup case and it was what I had been using to try and keep all my make-up in!

I bought these big containers to start off since they have small and big drawers. Then I bought these smaller ones to place on top for even more storage.

I originally bought just one of each but realized I need two of each!! Yes I have of stuff.

I Started with this before I realized I needed more.

As I began organizing things into categories it became easier to throw out some things that went bad.

Most of what I threw out was lippies that had gone bad (had them for years) but I forgot to take a pic of them (sorry). I’d guess I threw away about 20-25.

This was the pile of old products that got trashed. There was no hair or face products because if i’m not ready to use them I don’t open them.
This is what I kept. This is all my make-up except palettes. I have bought a few new things and received stuff since.

After I went threw all of this (which does not look like a lot) I managed to end with this. (see pic below)

I realized I have more Hair care and Face products than Make-up lol

One the left side it is mostly make-up. I have an eye-liner and lip-liner draw. Mascara got it’s own draw because I have a lot ( I love trying new ones)

Then it goes: Foundation and concealer, blush/highlight/bronzer, big draw of all shadows to include singles and palettes.

Last two big drawers are all skin care products.

As for the top of this side I ordered a lipstick container/organizer here. Just waiting for it to arrive,

I need to was my brushes and find a glass to match the other to hold them all then add lipstick holder in front.

The right side is mostly hair care products but it does have my hand lotions, travel size items, nail polish, and hand sanitizers.

All of my perfumes had been on my jewelry boxes inside our closet and I hated it so I moved them on top. Plus that first draw is perfume samples.

This is not my ideal solution but I am happy with it. It will work till we move and I have the room to buy what I really want and set it up.

I hope this gives you some idea’s on what you can do when you are on a budget. The drawers could be decorated and could even put trays inside of some of the drawers to add more organization.
