I found quite a danny piece of treasure at Target's clearance section the other day. I wish I was smarter and picked up more if I had known that it will come in THIS handy. For those of you who are pondering about too much makeup and what to do with them, I would suggest using an ornament storage box to organize your makeup products.
The one I picked up is from snapware and it was on clearance for $8.38.
It has two layers and comes with precut cardboard dividers, which are really flimsy btw, to utilize your space the way you want to. (You can watch my video about it here)
Here's how I used one layer of my box.
I think it's specifically great for people like me who like to keep the original boxes.
You can easily spot the product name on the boxes and pick items out.
So much lip, nail and face products fit into one layer. If I wanted to squeeze in more it wouldn't be a problem either. This specific box is deep enough to hold taller items like foundation bottles and lip glosses.
And if you don't want to use the dividers, the box would pretty much look like my top layer.
You can stack as many boxes as you want and just top it off with a lid. I think this comes in so handy because it saves massive amount of space AND helps keep things in place.
The only problematic part about it is the plastic aspect of it. Since makeup is quite heavy, lifting the box up with the lid only is really a bad idea (it will snap for sure!).
So, do you guys have any other creative storage suggestions?
I feel like I have to be super compact and organized with my stuff when I move in to my new LA apartment because it's so tiny! :p
