“I have way too much makeup!” said no woman, EVER.
If your figurative makeup storage cup currently runneth over, take a look at what you have around your apartment/house/condo/igloo/yacht. There’s a good chance you have at least one of the three items below, which you can repurpose for more makeup storage.
1. Shopping bag gets a haircut
Trim the top section from a shopping bag (I like using MAC bags for this), and then you can stash makeup in the bottom part.
One other nice thing about this hack is that you can trim the bags down to whatever height you need. 🙂
Got lots of products? Then trim lots of bags — some for compacts, pencils, lipsticks, blushes, etc.
2. Resurrect old gift boxes
If you have any boxes with lids that are about the same height as the boxes themselves, you can repurpose both the lid and the box.
This one here is from an Oribe gift set, and I’m using it to store makeup compacts in neat, little rows…
If the lids and boxes are of a similar height (and sometimes even if they’re not), you can save space by stacking them on top of each other.
3. Cut that carton!
Got a cute carton? You can give it a new job by cutting it down the middle and taping the ends in place, and then use it to store blushes, eyeshadows, or whatever you’d like.
Got any other makeup storage hacks? Inquiring minds want to know. 🙂
