Ok so first off, awesome new Category!
Anyways, I would love to see how other woman are storing their make up. I have soo many products all over the place... i need suggestions. Thanks!
I have one of the five drawer things you can get from Walmart. The first drawer has everyday things, second has eyeshadow/eyeliner, third has blush/highlighter, fourth has lipgloss, and last has lipstick/lipbalm.
I also have a little desk caddy thing that I use to store palettes.
I have a Micke desk from ikea. The shallow 2 drawer one. Then I got a bunch of mesh trays from Target in the office supply section to organize my makeup in the drawers.
At the minute all my makeup is all over the place, when i organize it i usually mess it up in the morning since i dont have time. However i'm planning on getting some separators which i can use!
I store my everyday makeup in a train case from strictly, and the I store the rest in large Chanel cardboard boxes (they are prettier than plastic), I keep my brushes in an acrylic pot that I also put a Chanel ribbon around to make it pretty!

I have that colorful rolling cart from office depot and it's been good to use until recently.(Makeup overload!)I use the first drawer for new things,things that I need to use instead of just putting away.High-end eyeshadows I usually keep together and seperate from drugstore,so I know where to look for a certain brand.All my blushes,highlighters and bronzers are in one drawer.Lipsticks and lipglosses are also seperated,but all brands are mixed.I find having everything organized like that works pretty good,I know where the things I want to use that day are and don't have to spend much time searching.I use this pencil holder/storage container from walmart for all my brushes and liners as well :)
I use a 20 drawer rolling cart and other containers.
I have the MICKE desk from IKEA and the ISIS rolling cart from office max. I have a generic brand and the Sephora brand train cases for when I feel like packing my stuff up to do other ppl's makeup and the small LE MUFE Rock Forever train case that came with a kit... Amazingly, that still isn't enough, and I need to invest in some good drawer dividers for my vanity. =\
I use a clear rolling cart with different sized drawers to store my beauty products as well. I have also added some clear containers in various sizes to keep them all in place and sorted which allows for easy access without having to rummage through a bunch of products. I have also posted a video on my Website that shows how I store my nail polish and accessories, it's a few months old and I have since aquired so many more things that I may just have to make an updated video!!
Let me know what you lovelies think :)

I keep everything in an old dresser that my mum built for me either when I was a baby or before I was born. From there I organize most products into deep drawer containers that I bought from The Container Store. On top of the dresser I have my brushes in pen cups I got at my local K-Mart.
I need to figure out something for my larger palettes (i.e., my UD Naked and Naked2 palettes + a MAC 15x eyeshadow palette and a freestyle palette I bought on Etsy that has a couple of my MAC blushes). I'm thinking of either acrylic drawers or something like Sterlite, but I'm not 100% sure yet. Oh, organization.

I've got a 'everyday make-up' stash box, which is from the Dutch drugstore Action. The eyeshadows and lipsticks I put on 2 little boxes and other things which don't belong in my everyday make-up and also not eyeshadow or lipstick I have it in a little make-up bag. But if you have got a big stash I think the most easy way to put it in little boxes by kind of products.

I don't have a crazy amount of makeup, but I love how I store mine. I have 3 storage bins from Target side by side. They're small and they each have three drawers. The first is for face, the next eyes, and the third lips. My foundations are stored upright on top of them and my brushes are in a holder on a shelf. Simple, perfect, yes.
I have two boxes that I painted: a bigger for palettes and a smaller for face stuff. Then there are two little 3 drawer things from Target [they're turquoise] that I keep lipsticks and smaller eye products in. Then there's one of those larger pen things from Office Max that I keep eyeliners and lipglosses in.
I would love to have a desk for my makeup. But right now i have all my face products in one long rectangular container & all my eye products in another. Then for my lip products i found a great alternative for a lipstick holder, using the container that acrylic nail tips come in. I wish that everything was a little more organized & that i had easier access to my face & eye products.
I go to my favorite local thrift store and find cute baskets and metal vintage pans :)

just a big plastic container right now haha. i'm chainging my room around soon, so i'll get a make up table that has drawers in it. i think i'll have them in order i apply my make up, eyes, face, cheeks, lips.
I have a black box that I keep in a drawer in my vanity for stuff I use everyday and the stuff I don't I keep in a makeup bag :)

I have 2 plastic container bins. I container contains my face stuff and inside this bin is also a bag where I put my lippies. The other container is my eye makeup. Then, my brushes are placed in a brush roll.

I watch a LOT of makeup tutorial storage, and many many famous beauty gurus (including the temptalia herself) have videos of their storage. she used clear acrylic bins that are only $3-6 each I believe (SUPER cheap compared to other brands) to store makeup
It's great because they have sooo many sizes to fit different makeup products, are sturdy, can fit into shallow drawers/vanities, and are clear so you can see everything you have

A good way to organize your beauty products is start with your brushes and then gather all bushes into section within the small brushes and big brushes,then get all mascaras and gather them together with all mascaras. Then get all eyeliners and gather together , with all eyeliners. After that is done gather all eyeshadows and pallets together in order to make the eyeshadow more organized. In other word make gather all beauty product and section them out to make them more organized <3 :)
