I live in a 2 bedroom house, But, my bedroom is really tiny, you walk in, and theres basically room for my bed on one end, maybe a nightstand on each side, and then at the other, a tall dresser, and maybe if I'm lucky a desk on the far side by the wall, but thats really pushing it, we dont have nights stands or a tall dresser right now, just a nice night stand with our tv on top.. so what is good storage for small spaces

Plastic stackable containers you could get from Wal-Mart or Target. My room is basically the same as yours & I have two containers with 5 draws for all my things.

Vertical storage! Take Ikea's idea and run with it. I live in NYC, and our apartments here aren't exactly spacious, if you know what I mean. I bought a standing etagerie that goes over my toilet in the bathroom, and bought three 3-drawer sterilite containers from Target to go across it. It's perfect storage for all of my makeup! (My collection isn't that extensive.) Hair products go on a shelf I put up in my bathroom, and the rest goes into storage below the sink or the medicine cabinet above!
I use a tall drawer set (i think i got it from Target) and it works well. Not only does it hold all my makeup and hair products, but it doubles for keeping school supplies, paper, etc. It's also tall and skinny so it doesn't take up that much room.
Do you have a closet, it may sound weird but I have a oddly small sized room as well and because I had some space Left in my closet, I put my make up there. I put up a shelf that I could sit at, used some sterlite drawers from the container store got a small stool and voila, DIY vanity.

If you don't have tons of makeup then get a nice makeup case and a light up mirror. A makeup case isn't to bad as long as it has the pull out tiers and everything is properly organized because the most important thing is BEING ABLE TO SEE EVERYTHING that you have. Having a case means you can get ready anywhere (restroom, desk, table etc) and then you can put your case away without making your room look to cramped or messy. If you still want a designated makeup area then I recommend looking into the IKEA Micke Desk (single drawer). It's not too big and very affordable. Hope this helps.

i do the stacked plastic drawers and I love that method, I always know where everything is, however I am a college student and have to move to the dorms because my school has a requirement where i have to live X amount of years on campus or whatever, so during that time I just keep my makeup in a case, with tiers that open up as I open the lid, it only houses my favs but it allows me to take my favorite makeup back and forth. Both ways are super compact and easy, but I prefer the permanence the drawers, theres more space and customize-ability XD

I'm in the same boat. I managed to make room for a big (unattractive) tower of sterile drawers. Ihave a few smaller ones on top.
I have a vanity, as well, which is mostly where my everyday products are stored and thrown around.
