Does your vanity look like the makeup aisle exploded all over it? Is it starting to pile up with bottles, brushes, palettes, quads and mascara tubes? It’s OK, you can admit to your makeup massacre (this is a safe place!). We understand, and if we’re being completely honest, we’re right there with you. Nothing is worse than a messy makeup drawer or vanity, so we came up with a solution to your problem that could save you a headache and some serious cash! The key to makeup organization is…wait for it…in your kitchen! That’s right! Check out these five items that could make your life a whole lot easier!

Kitchen Items for Makeup Storage

1. Mason Jars

After you’ve eaten up whatever yumminess was in those pretty jars, recycle them and use them for brush, mascara, eye and lip liner storage! If you have some extra time, paint the jars so they can double as makeup containers and bathroom/bedroom décor!

2. Straw Dispenser

Avoid the dusty makeup brushes by storing them in handy dust and lint-free environments like straw dispensers!

3. Tupperware Containers

Is your Tupperware collection starting to get out of control? Use a few to organize your makeup! Designate the various container sizes to different categories (lipsticks, eye shadows, concealers, foundations, etc.). Their airtight closure capabilities will help keep dust, moisture and any outside particles away from your precious makeup!

4. Cutlery Tray

These trays work miracles for our forks, knives and spoons, so think what they can do for your makeup! Use the various compartments to keep your beauty items organized. It’s like a one-stop-shop for all your essentials and it’s easy to carry around. We call that a win-win!

5. Cake Stand

Those pretty tiered stands are great for displaying your homemade cupcakes and cookies, but even better at holding your nail polish! Make a pretty beauty display that would put Nordstrom to shame!
