organizing makeup

My make up is a mess! I have metal to glue to the inside of the medicine cabinet door. Then I can glue magnets to small things. I am thinking about a small tackle box. How do you store your makeup?

I have a low sided wooden box that is divided into 3 sections that I have used (these can be easily found in antique stores for under $5) (it's about 4 inches wide and 10 inches long and 2-3 inches tall) but now I am using a clear makeup organizer and medicine organizer that I bought at Target. It has room for lipsticks, facial moisturizer, eye liners, mascara, tweezers, blush and pretty much everything and doesn't take up a lot of space. I can find things easily. (I am not using the wooden box for my perfumes)

I use a small cosmetic bag that holds several rubber-bands and barrettes; 2 nail polish colors, two combs; three lipsticks; a case w/8 shades eye shadow; mascara, and an eyebrow/liner pencil. I believe in the basics and as natural as I can get - otherwise I get really bad blemishes from sweating and rubbing the make-up on really hot/humid days. I also have a full size brush I keep in that drawer (along w/ a months worth of vitamins; cat treats; guest bath toiletries, and travel toiletries), and a compact brush w/mirror I keep in my purse (which is also small).

I keep it in 2 baskets, 1 with lip liners, lipsticks and lipbalms the other has mascara, mineral powder make up & brush, blush & brush, eyeliners the moisturiser tube sits vaguely on top. These baskets sit on a shelf each in the vanity cupboard (it has to larger middle doors and a smaller door each side they go on the left) in my ensuite bathroom. I do regularly go through the lipsticks etc to make sure they aren't in there to long or more than a year as once opened they don't last forever.
My hair things go in a bits and pieces plastic zippered many pocketed thing that hangs on the wall behind the door.

I glued a piece of sheet metal on the inside of the medicine cabinet door. Then I glued magnets to make up. Saw this idea on pinterest and I just love it.

I asked for a 2 level tackle box for Christmas to hold all of my make up, brushes and a hand held mirror. I love it!

My daughter thought that my husband had gone bonkers when he took her shopping and told her that's what I'd been talking about. He said that she almost cried saying that "Mommy would never want anything like that because she doesn't even like to fish!"

She thinks its pretty cool now.

I love the compartments in it and the fact that I can take all of the makeup out of it and wash it out since its plastic.

Connie that is a very cool idea as is the fishing tackle box.

I put a silverware drawer insert in my make up drawer and it works wonders. It too is plastic so makes for easy clean up!
