Small Vanity Organization

Even though my love run deeps for my vintage 1940’s vanity table (you can read about the restoration process here), there’s no denying that the drawers are small and storage space is lacking. I’m lucky in the sense that I don’t hoard an obscene amount of makeup, but I’ve still had to get creative with how I store my products.

Skin care products, setting sprays, brushes and miscellaneous tools are stored on the vanity’s table top

The middle drawer houses bigger eye and cheek palettes and extra brushes and tools

Foundation and concealer drawer

It’s all about the eyes

All things cheeks – blush, bronzer and highlighter; eventually, Ryan is going to help me build a grid system so each individual product can have it’s own “slot”

The fifth and final drawer – my favorite! – lip products

I purchased all the white bin organizers from Target for between $2.99-$4.99 each, and the glass containers that hold my brushes are from Michael’s. 

This organization is far from perfect, but so far, it has worked great and it means that much more to me that I’ve made everything related to this vanity my own.

What tips do you have for vanity organization?
