I have a little vanity in my closet where I get ready for the day, so here is where my makeup lives. I subscribe to the Kondo-ism that like should be stored with like, and because I really like makeup, I have a lot of it. I used to live out of a variety of scattered makeup bags, and before that, caboodles/train cases, and because I couldn’t see at a single glance what I had, I didn’t use most of it. I upgraded to this clear acrylic makeup cube and love that I can sort by category with the drawers, can easily see what I have, so then I tend to use it all. Also, because it is clear, I am encouraged to keep it tidy and clean, wiping up spills as they occur. While this cube sits on a little table adjacent to my vanity, I like that it could easily live on a bathroom countertop because it’s not messy looking, and feels like shopping a beauty counter at a department store.
palettes, skincare, and a few hair touchup items (like dry shampoo)
The cube has a lid, but I keep it off to be able to organize these taller items. On my vanity are a few overflow items sorted by category: brushes, lip pencils and crayons, eye and lip liners/mascara, lash curlers, and brows.
