3. Ikea drawer Alex 6
The Ikea Alex drawer is another easy make-up storage solution. You can organize makeup in different categories from top to bottom, and you can also insert plastic containers for separate compartments. If you buy two, you can add a thick wooden board, paint it with your favorite color, place it over the two drawers and – tada – you have an instant office desk. How beautiful is it?
4. Shoe organizer
This idea of hanging shoe organizer is excellent for dorms or small rooms. Just hang it from a corner or a door and put makeup in your pockets. You can even put labels on the transparent plastic bag for better organization.
5. Mounted Mason jars
If you want to save money on makeup cases while you're still very creative, you can make this mason jar project mounted! Mason jars are everywhere and are incredibly cheap (or you can recycle jars of similar size). Take a plank of wood, make it rustic by polishing it, cover it with a new paint, add the metal screw clamps that fit into the opening of the vases and insert the mason jars. That's all! You can also hook the hooks at the bottom to organize your jewelry.
Do you have old candle pots around? Give life to a new life by turning them into usable and cute make-up containers. Simply place the make-up brushes in the jar or put some pebbles for additional charm.
7. Ikea Makeup Vanity
This Ikea vanity hack with a clear glass top is another good way to organize makeup. The glass top lets you see the trick underneath while you can use shelf space to organize other tricks in clear plastic or acrylics.
8. Glittered jars
For a fantasy, take the do-it-yourself makeup jar, cover half or the entire jar with the glue and roll it up. Add some vinyl decals for a touch of class.
9. Empty the brush storage area
Clear plastic containers are easily purchased in craft stores for good value. To create an efficient toilet brush, do not forget to fill them in half with plastic or iridescent beads so that the brushes do not fall on the sides. Separate those brushes that you use for your eyes and also for your face.
10. Christmas gift boxes
If you have unused or empty gift boxes, you can use them as an incredibly inexpensive makeup organizer. You can create mini compartments to adapt them to red, compact or, in this case, lipsticks. Cover them with a fabric or a patterned card to make them look more beautiful!
11. Ikea Raskog
This Ikea Raskog hack allows you to have a make-up furniture at home. Label each shelf to organize it correctly and place it near your make-up mirror to make it easier to use.
12. Recycled plastic
After drinking drinks and other drinks, do not throw those plastic bottles away! You can cut and melt the edges using an iron to give you light and cheap makeup organizers. Use colored plastic bottles for a splash of colors on your vanity.
13. Pen holder
There's more in your nail shelving than keeping your hordes of nail varnishes coveted. It is also a good way to store makeup in bullet-shaped containers such as lipsticks, lip glosses and some liquid foundation bottles. You can even mount pallets in the rack and you have a small corner that effectively holds your makeup.
14. Leather brush holder
Good for traveling, a toilet brush does not need to be expensive. You just need to be creative. Keep your makeup brushes properly in this leather roller bag to keep them away from dust and dirt. Unroll it everywhere when you're around! In case the skin is not your thing, you can also use the sushi mat for your do-it-yourself makeup brush holder.
15. Medicine cabinet
If you're one of those who spends most of the beauty time in the bathroom, then this is one of the best makeup ideas for you! Make room for your makeup right in your medicine cabinet (or in the integrated bathroom cabinet).
16. Napkins made of recycled paper
Do not throw those paper tubes as you can do in makeup storage. Just wrap them with colored or patterned paper and stick them on a plastic plate. Be innovative as you like! With this idea of organizing makeup, you are one step closer to zero waste.
17. Magazine organizer
Everything about this organizer of the magazine rack palette is fantastic. It is not necessary to stack the eye shadow palettes one above the other. It also adapts to your makeup table or your makeup cabinet – it's just brilliant.
