I love makeup, so when it comes time to store my items, I know I need to have everything organized just right. I need the perfect space for my items. And you’ll never catch me putting my expensive makeup in a bathroom cabinet or throwing everything all over my desk.
Nope. Not me.
I choose the best makeup organizer to keep everything nice and tidy.
And my collection has found a way to continue growing. I started out with a few small items, and now I have nearly a dozen compacts, countless brushes, lipstick, nail polish, tons of eyeliner and makeup pencils.
You name it – I probably have it in my makeup organizer.
I’ve found a method to the madness and have become a master of picking out the best makeup organizer for my needs. There’s not too much that goes into a makeup organizer in all honesty, but there are a few must-consider features or specs that really make choosing your makeup organizer a science.
Tips for Choosing the Best Makeup Organizer
What I’ve found is that with a little research and time, you’ll be able to find a makeup organizer that truly fits your needs. A few of the criteria I recommend considering before making your purchase are:
Your makeup collection will dictate the size of the makeup organizer that you need. Every organizer has a size listed, so you’ll need to take into consideration the size of your makeup collection versus the size of your organizer.
Once you have a good idea of your makeup inventory, you’ll want to look at the space available in the makeup organizer. You’ll find that a few organizers will hold just lipstick and small items while others will have more than enough room for your makeup brushes, pencils and large palettes.
Sections or Compartments
If you have a lot of makeup, you’ll need to find a way to keep everything nice and separated. This is a lot harder than it sounds, so you’ll need to make sure you have enough compartments and sections to be able to hold all of your most precious makeup items neatly in your makeup organizer. Some models even come with modular designs and adjustable trays that allow you to hold your items neatly in place.
Hard plastic and acrylic are the two best materials for a low-end makeup organizer because they’re affordable, easy to clean and very durable. You might get a few scratches on these materials, but for the price and durability, you won’t find many better options available.
Makeup organizers come in a variety of types from carousels that easily rotate to allow you to view and use items to trays that allow you to neatly store your items and pull out the trays as needed. There are also cases and bags available and modular units which allow you to customize your organizer to your specific storage needs. Interlocking units are also available and allow you to add storage as needed.
You’ll find makeup organizers in any budget, but the size difference will be the main factor that’s sacrificed when you choose a lower-end model. It’s all in the details, so you’ll want to choose an organizer that truly meets all of your needs – it’s harder than it sounds.
And you’ll also want to keep a keen eye on reviews.
