| TEACHING TUESDAY | How To Organize Your Makeup On A Budget! | Affordable Makeup Organization!

Life is so much easier if everything is organized, including makeup. Whether you own only a handful of products or you're a makeup collector and own 35 black eyeliner pencils, it's always easier to find what you're looking for if you have a good organization system. It doesn't have to be hard or expensive to organize your makeup though, there are so many cute and fun ways to organize on a budget! I'm going to share with you a few ways I store my makeup fun and affordably, enjoy!

Dressers & Vanities:

I don't have a crazy amount of makeup at the moment and I can easily store it all on top of my dresser and in the top drawer of my dresser. If you are a huge makeup collector you might want to buy or use a separate unit for just your makeup storage. There are so many affordable options out there. 
The ALEX Drawer systems from Ikea are very popular among many YouTubers. There are a few different size options available to meet your needs and you can mix and match furniture pieces to your liking. People love these pieces because the drawers are the perfect size for storing makeup. They're also very sleek and good-looking. Each piece ranges from about $80 to a little over $200.
If the Alex Drawer systems are too expensive for you, you can always check out Walmart or Target for cheap dresser or vanity options. The quality may not be great, but you might end up getting a better deal.
Don't forget to check out thrift shops and garage sales in your area as well! You can probably find beautiful and maybe even vintage furniture for a very affordable price!

Storage Containers & Boxes:

My favorite place to get storage containers is Dollar Tree. They offer so many different colors, sizes, and designs for only $1 each. Keep in mind though, these containers are cheap so they may break over time, but so far I've had good luck with them. They're perfect if you need a way to store makeup inside drawers. I got the pink ones and the white ones from Dollar Tree and they're perfect for organizing different types of products. I store my liquid foundations in one, my pressed powders in another, blushes in another and my eyeshadow quads in one. 
I also got these cute pink mini drawer containers from Dollar Tree. I actually use them to store some of my jewelry, but they're perfect for storing makeup too!

I got my acrylic makeup organizer from Tuesday Morning for about $12, but you can also find these at Target for around the same price. I've heard people spend between $25-$100 on these things for a specific brand, not sure what it is, but that's insane. These organizers are great though, I love mine! I store my concealers in one drawer, mascaras and eyeliners in the middle, and my eyebrow products in the last drawer. The drawers are the perfect size and you can store a lot of products in it. I'm definitely going to go back to Tuesday Morning to purchase another one of these!

My makeup brush holder is also from Dollar Tree. It was actually a gift box, that I thought looked cute and it's perfect for storing makeup brushes. Remember to be creative! 

D.I.Y. Storage:

One of my favorite things to use to organize and store things is boxes. You can use jewelry boxes, makeup boxes, shoe boxes, anything really! I got many of the boxes I use from BareMinerals makeup sets and not only are they the perfect size to store products, they're also super stylish and pretty. 
Pretty jewelry boxes could also help organize and separate different products and you can even use plain cardboard boxes. Just cut them to the size you need and decorate it however you choose!
When it comes to storing your makeup brushes, you can use anything! Cheap bowls, cups, or boxes that you can decorate or design yourself are some awesome ideas, and you can personalize them to match all of your other decor in your room. You can also use mason jars, vases, or even flower pots to store products! 
Your decorating and designing options are endless. You can paint, color, use ribbons and tape, stickers, the list goes on!
