Organizing my makeup collection has been a huge struggle lol. I do feel like the powder product drawer was the worst of them all. It was just a huge mess with different products everywhere and I couldn’t even easily grab the products I needed. It was definitely time to clear and clean this drawer and to finally organize it. I’m very proud of the end result! In today’s blog post I’m going to show you how I organize my powder products in my vanity drawer.

I’m doing series where I’m organizing my makeup collection. Yes, everything. If you’re interested in seeing other parts of my collection then I recommend checking out the following posts: Organizing My Makeup Collection | Lipsticks Drawer, Organizing My Makeup Collection | Highlighter Drawer and/or Organizing My Kylie Cosmetics Makeup Collection.  

If you also like makeup decluttering besides makeup organizing, I would recommend checking out the following post: Decluttering My Makeup Collection

As a beauty lover, it’s easily coming to this point of having so many products in your collection that you need to declutter and/or organize because you’re feeling too overwhelmed. I was at this point and decided to start this series. Today we’re going to organize my messy powder products drawer. Actually, this drawer also contains my mascara, eyeliner, setting sprays and brow products.

Well eh, this drawer was definitely horrible. There’s literally products everywhere. In this drawer I store all my blushes, face powders, bronzers, I even have some highlighters in here, brow products, eyeliners, mascaras and setting sprays. It needed a way better organization. So I went ahead and bought some little baskets at my local store but you can buy them at Amazon as well. 

At this point, I just threw my products in there because it was already messy. Some products aren’t even that easy to pick up, because it’s all the way in the back. I’ve been thinking about how to easily store my products and this is what I came up with.

It might still looks a little bit messy but it’s way better organized now! I still have to get my products out of their packaging though. I’m someone who can’t easily get rid of the packaging. Most of the time it’s because the packaging is super pretty but I also like to keep it in the packaging because I can see which product I’m getting. (for example, the KKW Beauty blushes look exactly the same so I can’t tell which one it is).

So, on the left side I have all my blushes, then all my face powders (and a random eyeliner pot from Colourpop lol), my setting sprays and 2 little acrylic baskets: one for brow products and one for eyeliners. The bigger basket in the back contains my face palettes, some beauty blenders a setting mist and lip scrub. Besides that basket, I have a little basket with all my mascaras.

Even though I’m not obsessed with organizing my products this way, I’m still very happy how it came out!

The next step in this process is to get all my products out of their carton packaging. This is really a bit habit of mine. But I’m definitely doing this the next time I’m going over this collection, maybe even a bit earlier.

Moreover, I’m getting some slimmer acrylic baskets for my brow products and eyeliners because they’re too big in my opinion which isn’t working nicely. 

I’m still browsing Pinterest to see storage ways I like so I can improve mine. I’ll keep you posted if I find another great solution. 

Hope to see you next time loves,

    I definitely relate regarding keeping packaging – I have a bag under my bed right now that has the carton packaging for many of my palettes lol! Loving seeing all this organization inspo because I always feel like I have a “new” collection whenever I organize my makeup.

      Glad I’m not the only one who likes to keep the packaging lol! That’s so true when everything is clean and organized it truly feels like a whole new collection. 🙂

    Ah, there’s nothing better than a declutter. As soon as I have my own house, I’m going to organise the shit out of my makeup drawers lol. The little baskets are a cute idea that I might just get on board with!
