Just curious about what everyone uses to organize and store various makeup. Traincase, Caboodle, a Vanity (table), Drawer, Box, Bag, etc.?

Does anyone have any interesting and crafty ways to organize your cosmetics? Please share!!!

I have 2 traincases that I keep on my vanity. These are for the items I use most often. Then, under my vanity I have 3 more trainecases of makeup that I don't use as much. For everything else I have a huge trunk. Its def. not completly organized but its a work in progress

I use a traincase that is not too big but it has 3 layers so it fits a lot of little things and on the bottom it has a bigger area for bigger stuff. I don't store my foundation in it though. Anything that I like to keep upright like a foundation bottle etc I put in the bathroom cabinet out of site. I know they say you shouldn't store any makeup in the bathroom but I still do it and none of my makeup/skin care has ever suffered from it.

Mine is in a large ziplock bag and in a plastic basket that is trying to be cute but doesn't quite make it. Ok, the basket is ugly and I don't like it.
I am SUPER looking forward to starting my business so that I can have more stuff and nicer things. I am buying the domain name for my company today. Wish me luck!!

I store all my makeup in those plastic Sterilite drawer things. I have 2 small 3-drawer ones, 1 medium sized 3 drawer one, and a large 4 drawer one. But they're not all filled anymore since I started swapping and giving away

I got a multi-drawer organizer from Home Depot
My brother had gotten one to put his nails and screws & such in for his workshop and I begged him to get me one next time he went to HD. Now I have little see through drawers for all my eyeshadow and a little bit bigger ones for lipglosses,blush and and fdtn. I really like it because I can see all my stuff. Heres a pic

I *love* it MissHoney!!! It's perfect! That's just what I need! I wonder if Lowe's has it? (I favor Lowe's because my brother works in their corporate offices, so we don't like Home Depot. LOL - Just kidding. Actually, I don't mind Home Depot, but only when Lowe's is out of what we need.

they are wall mountable as well, and the smaller drawers have dividers you can insert that are perfect for organizing your e/s pots. The best part is it only cost around $15-16
I really like my organizer, I find it easier than my old traincase because I can see everything. Of course I still like my traincase for traveling, seeing as how these Stack-on drawers arn't quite portable

I use small tackle box containers to store my cream foundations in my makeup kit, so I can see everything and find whatever shade that I need while I am on set, without taking a long time. Candace Corey Makeup & Hair www.candacecorey.com/makeupworkshop

Traincases are not totally necessary..Though nice in the aesthetic sense..Before I moved up to my 5 drawer Sterilite cart ,I kept my makeup in a toolbox(actaully called a Technician's box) from Home Depot..You can get some great cases there at a fraction of the price of an actual train case

Ikea- has some great plastic containers that come in all sizes and helps organize all your makeup separately. I try to keep it neat but then comes that Monday morning when you're late and trying to find that right shade which entails you making a huge mess and then your back to square one..................
