I don't display it, it's in the bathroom cabinet,,,,

If you have a drawer you could put it in a cutlery tray. Separation of products and visibility.

In the bathroom under sink cabinet drawer - in either
glass jars for brushes, lip glosses, mascara, cotton wool balls and pads,

small boxes to separate/group - nail varnish blusher perfume face creams or the

narrow cutlery type trays from IKEA

...the double drawer is filled with this and looks so organised, everything to hand and easily tidied except I wear the same mascara, blusher and lippy!!! hmm

old birchboxes/glossyboxes etc, like open trays for my every day bits, stuff that rarely gets used is in make up bags in bathroom cupboard. lipsticks and brushes are kept in old golden syrup tins!

I have 3 makeup bags.

1 to put in my purse and two for 'the rest'.

But my skincare products? They have their own shelf 🙈🙈

Oh, and there's a glass thingie for brushes and sponges.

In these drawers. I think they were £25 from Amazon and have tidied up my chest of drawers so much. It's so quick and easy to find what you want. I love them.

In a set of mesh stationery drawers on my dressing table.

I have a set of drawers similar to Squiz that came from Muji plus a pot holder type thing from the same range for brushes, nail files etc. Keeps every thing neat and easily accessible and is very simple to keep clean and tidy. Link here

In a drawer in my dressing table, which has a plastic drawer-tidy-thingy I bought from Clas Ohlsen. Like a deep cutlery tray with squarer compartments.

As its driving me nuts her stuff being everywhere!

Graphista Fri 23-Dec-16 21:53:05

You can stack these top and bottom

I selected a glass-shelved bathroom cabinet from Ikea and my daily makeup lives there. I keep brushes and pencils in glass jars. Blushers and palettes are stacked up and I always keep a selction of lipsticks on the bottom shelf.

I have the acrylic makeup stand box graphista linked to, it's great, you can see everything at once and there are neat little spots for lipsticks and brushes etc.

TheHighPriestessOfTinsel Sat 24-Dec-16 11:15:48

marking place. Mine is strewn over the top of the chest of drawers, which drives DH nuts.

Beautifullymixed Sat 24-Dec-16 13:20:52

I love my little organisers, but have accumulated even more make up recently, and a couple of primers (my obsession).
Will have to expand somehow smile
