Makeup and Jewelry Organization

Sephora likes to make me think I need all the amazing new products each season, and sometimes a lot of the time I fall for it. The problem then lies on where to store it all. I used to keep all my makeup and brushes in a basket on my bathroom vanity which led to the never-ending search and digging for what I was looking for when I needed it - not fun.

So, I purchased this acrylic makeup case with 5 drawers last year, and it was exactly what I needed. Not only can I find everything quickly, but it's super organized and oh so pretty.





I purchased a small square vase and some vase filler at Target for my makeup brushes. Just another "genius - why didn't I think of that" Pinterest idea.


My fragrance collection also needed some much needed organization, so I found this mirrored tray on Amazon which displays them all perfectly.


As for my jewelry, that was getting out of control! So, I picked up a necklace tree at Bed, Bath, & Beyond *hello 20% off coupons*, and the bracelet holder at Michaels *hello 40% off coupons*. I recently did another purge, and everything fits nicely now.



How do you organize your makeup and accessories?

  2. I have a very similar acrylic organizer and I love it!! It helped clean up my bathroom counter and some of my drawers in the bathroom too!
    Love the bracelet stand that you have--I need to get one of those now that I have more bracelets just laying around on my dresser!

  3. I really need that acrylic makeup organizer! I have all of my makeup in an organizer under the sink but its so annoying to have to bend over to get everything out every day. At 5:30 am. LOL! Love that mirrored tray too! Such a perfect way to display your perfume!

  5. I totally fall for that Sephora trap every season too which is why I've already outgrown my 3 drawer cube I purchased! I think I need to upgrade to the 5 drawer because I just love the functionality! I love that mirrored tray for your perfumes too!

  10. We're not going to talk about how only a small sliver of my makeup collection fits in that same exact 5 drawer acrylic organizer. lol *shame face* I only use it now for lip products. Yeah, I have that many. lol That reminds me, are you a Sephora VIB? I got a 15% off coupon and can share it with a friend. It's the perfect opportunity for you to try that Too Faced primer. ;) #enabler

  11. I love this! Makeup storage and organization is always something I struggle with as I don't want our bathroom crowded with all of my things and J to have no room. I will definitely have to try this out!

  12. I have similar clear makeup organizers. Love them. I love that they keep my stuff nice and i can see all that have. Plus, I think they look really nice. I so need to organize my jewelry, it's all over the place.

  13. I want that organizer! It is fabulous and mine is a mess. I just don't wanna pay the steep price, ya know?

    Love how you have your perfumes displayed, so pretty!

  15. I love that way you have everything organized! I have acrylic drawers for my make up that I bought at the Container Store when I lived in Atlanta about 7 years ago. They are still in perfect shape today :) I have a few jewelry trees and such sitting in random spots and a jewelry chest. Plus an extra towel holder in our master bath holds my longer costume jewelry. I need some new perfume...I used up basically just about all the ones I own. Love that mirrored tray!!!

  17. I use acrylic holders too. Sadly I have way to much makeup. Or is it not too sadly?! ;) All my jewelry fits in a plastic desk organizer in a drawer of my bureau. Love how everything is all together and organized so much easier to find things.

  18. I have literally no makeup organization whatsoever and I sit on the floor in front of the mirror to apply it (totally blocking entry to our bedroom). Any time we are getting ready to go somewhere my hubby wants to kill me. Haha!

  19. Oooh I love that necklace tree! I have a vanity from Ikea where I lay out all of my necklaces and a hanging jewelry organizer for my earrings (those were always the biggest mess for me haha). I need to work on makeup next!

  20. I so need something like this to organize my makeup! That acrylic case is actually pretty reasonably priced. I've seen some for like $300 before!

  21. I use muji for my makeup, another acrylic for brushes, a bracelet stand for my bracelets, and some necklaces hang/some are in a jewelry separator.

  22. I've had my eye on one of those makeup cases with the drawers forever now and it always slips my mind to finally buy one. Cute brush holder!

  23. This looks super pretty and functional! I desperately need some organization in my makeup and jewelry collections, but first I need to get through my spring purging.

  24. Such a good idea and definitely one I will be doing myself. I am forever losing my makeup and buying draws will let me be more organized. Putting foundations, eye-shadows, lipsticks and nail varnishes together - will make the getting ready process much easier and quicker. Keep up the helpful posts!
