Makeup Organization

by Beauti Cosmetics

I treated myself to this new toy with my Christmas money. I had seen a similar makeup organizer on the bathroom counter of the Kardashians and have been wanting one for some time. (I have read conflicting information on exactly what brand they have and prices range from $300-$500. Too much.)

I found mine on Amazon and am really happy with it. It was pricey but well worth the splurge...as long as I don't break it. I keep my brushes in one of the drawers instead of the container on top.


I wish I had a better "before" picture of how I attempted to organize my makeup but I was too excited to unpack and get the new one setup. I had makeup in several different bags, drawers, containers and baskets.


I feel like I have all this new makeup now that I can see everything I own. Just like clothes or jewelry, if I don't see it or have easy access to it I won't wear it. Another reason to justify the price tag.


I read that Emily Maynard uses these clear shoe organizers from the Container Store on her counter, an affordable alternative. It looks like she has combined a few sizes.


Throwback... who had a Caboodle back in the 90's? Did you bring it to overnight camp? Ha! I still have this exact one (with my name in huge scripty letters across it) in my closet at my parent's house.

  1. The Caboodle! Stop it. DEFINITELLYYYY had one of those. Wow, looking back you would think they would have at least tried to make it look less like a tackle box ??

  2. Caboodles! I had got mine for Christmas one year. You are so smart to use a clear organizer for your makeup. I bet it will save you from buying duplicates because you are looking at everything you have every time you apply your makeup.
