I spend a lot of time at my makeup table. I get ready there every morning, and I love that I have it in a room with my own space so that I can organize my stuff as I see fit! But whether you have a vanity, a desk or just get ready at your bathroom sink, you probably have a stash somewhere with all of your products. Having a lot of products can make things messy real fast, so organization is key! There are so many cute organizers out there, but rest assured that you don’t have to spend a lot of money on the fancy ones. Some of my faves are from the dollar store! Read on to check out my faves!

I am absolutely in love with my acrylic organizers. Now, just FYI, some of these CAN get pricey, depending on the size and complexity of the design. However, some of the smaller ones with several compartments are so perfect for smaller cosmetics and tube products! I also love them because I can see what’s in the little drawers already without having to open them all since they are clear. And, they are cute!
The one pictured below is actually a stackable called Sodynee Jewelry and Cosmetic Storage 2 Piece Acrylic Makeup Organizer so the whole top part comes off and you can keep it separate from the drawers if you want to. I love it!
I even have some mini ones for the insides of some of my drawers – these lipstick ones are awesome! I’ll probably buy more to line the entire drawer! I found them at the store At Home for only $2.99 each!
I have more makeup brushes than I can count. They get a little out of hand sometimes! But I keep them organized in these simple clear vases. And guess where they came from? The Dollar Tree! You can’t beat $1, folks. I have a few of them on my table top, and I typically clean the brushes all at once, then place them in two of the containers. PRO TIP: Once I have used a brush, I place it in the third container. That way at the end of the week when I clean my brushes, I only have to clean the ones I have used!
Speaking of the Dollar Tree, there are SO many great organizational pieces you can buy there. They have these great little baskets that fit in drawers perfectly also. So smart! Who wants to pay a fortune for something that sits inside a drawer?
I get a lot of questions on what desk/table I am using. This is actually the Alex drawers from Ikea with the plain desktop. I need to get another set of drawers for the other side, but for now I just have the two plain table legs. You can see the combo that I purchased right here. I love it!
I always forget though which products I have stashed away in those drawers! So I decided to get some cute sticker labels for them – how amazing are these vinyls from GRL PWR Vinyl?
I’m a little obsessed! She does customized fonts, colors, and has so many personalization options! And the entire set was under $10! You can get yours right here; you can also use code KYMAKEUPJUNKIE below for an extra 25% off! How awesome is that?!
Another place that you can get great organizational products from is Wayfair! Not only do they have a great selection of acrylic organizers, etc, but they also have some great vanities if you’re on the hunt! They also did a similar feature about makeup organization that you won’t want to miss – featuring yours truly! Check out the post right here and get a look at my feature!
