SKINCARE & MAKEUP STORAGE TIPS
Storing your stash doesn’t have to be boring.

Sometimes getting organized can be difficult, especially when it comes to beauty products. Tons of little tubes and bottles that you sort of want to keep on display, but need to keep them from getting all over the place. Thankfully, there’s plenty of ways to keep your stash in check!
If you have a large collection, a set of drawers set aside specifically for the purpose of organizing your products may be perfect for you. Within the drawers, you can create dividers to separate products or organize each drawer to hold a specific item, such as sheet masks. You can even turn a taller set of drawers into a mini vanity by keeping a mirror and cups of brushes on top, with all your products neatly organized below!
They’re ubiquitous, appearing in almost every beauty guru’s or Instagram influencer’s house, but the Ikea Alex drawers really do offer a lot of space in a chic design. There are 5 and 9-drawer models, with drawers of two different depths. Of course, there are other sets of drawers out there, but Alex is a classic for a reason.
If you’re like me and suffer from “out of sight, out of mind” thinking, acrylic storage may be perfect! Acrylic storage lets you see all of your stuff, but keep it organized. These are especially great for small storage on top of your vanity or bathroom counter. There’s a ton of acrylic storage out there, available at all price points. Muji makes a set of short acrylic drawers that are perfect for lipsticks and small cosmetic compacts.
KEEP IT COOL
When storing products, sometimes climate comes into play. In very warm or humid areas, cosmetics and skincare can sweat, or even spoil. In cases like this, storing your products in the refrigerator can help keep your items intact. As an added bonus, chilled skincare can feel even more refreshing on the skin, and can even help combat redness and puffiness. If you want to be REALLY extra, there are mini-fridges out there specifically for skincare!
