Here is a look into my vanity and all the products I use & love to store in my thriving makeup collection!
Chest Drawers – Ikea:
I have the entire Ikea MALM set in my bedroom including the vertical 6-drawer chest and the horizontal 6-drawer chest that you see above.
I absolutely love these furniture pieces for makeup storage because they are so spacious; I can fit everything in these bad boys.
Acrylic Cosmetic Storage – Original Beauty Box:
I love acrylic storage for makeup. I’ve bought many over the years, as you can see I have a few different ones displayed, and the best one is definitely from Original Beauty Box (use code GRETA10 for 10% off). I know it’s a bit pricy so here are some that are under $60:
Mirrored Serving Tray – Target:
I bought mine last year so it’s not on the website anymore but here are some cute trays under $50:
Acrylic Cosmetic Organizer – Luxie Beauty:
This beauty has gorgeous crystal knobs that shine bright like a diamond every time the sun hits. The best part is that the top drawer can be flipped open or used as a pull out drawer. I use it as a pull out drawer because I need the extra space on top for my infinite amount of makeup brushes.
P.S. All the brushes with a pink handle are from Luxie beauty as well and they are my new favorite brushes in my collection. They are so incredibly soft and blend like a dream #obsessed
Acrylic Cosmetic Storage – Muji USA:
These are two acrylic cases stacked on top of each other and I use these for all my lipsticks. These drawers are pretty short so you can’t really stack any products on top of each other, that’s why it’s perfect for lipsticks. I actually like that I can’t stack my lipsticks, because this way I can actually see what I have; the more I see, the more I use haha.
If you don’t have too many beauty products then you can even use these as regular storage.
I use my adorable Glossybox box cover as a little tray for my brushes, self tanners, body shimmer, and my favorite Hand Cream from Skin An Apothecary.
P.S. These mesh brush holders are actually pencil holders from The Container Store
72 Round Lipstick Holder – Lady Moss Beauty:
I purchased this lipstick holder because I knew it would hold a good amount of my ever-growing collection of lipsticks. Keep in mind that it does take up a lot of space and it only holds round lipsticks.
That’s it for my vanity collection beauties. If you have any additional questions please comment below 🙂

Oh wow your vanity and your makeup collection are amazing! You should do a post about your collection or do makeup looks with these 🙂
I have a bunch of looks using my collection of makeup on my Instagram (@fortheloveofmakeupbaby) if you are interested 🙂
This is awesome! I love it! I have so much makeup these could be useful for.
This is such a beautiful set up and rivals my own beauty station! I adore beauty products so much (aka I’m a total product junkie). I just bought several more items for my palette storage. This was the one item that had me so stumped for storage options. I basically Googled until I found some incredible ideas and went thrift shopping to find what I needed. Now I’ve got some handy dandy organizers for all my various sized palettes. I ended up going with some pretty amazing dish rack & office folder type holders in various shapes and sizes. Some tall and stackable and others wider and shorter since palettes come in so many shapes and sizes. It’s perfect cause this way I will be able to sort by type of palette (contour, eyeshadow, strobing, etc.) and also by size. And I can tell with a quick glance what is what. I am so obsessed with storage solutions because I’m a firm believer in “if you can see it, you will use it”. Makeup brings me such joy, I am happy just seeing all the products I own! I could look at it forever and be so happy! You definitely own more lip products than I do – I’m more of a lip gloss girl. I’ve got so many brow products because I have super sparse brows. I keep looking for the perfect brow products plus I change my hair color so often so I have a pretty big collection. I just got the new Ka Brow by Benefit (amazing!) and I’m thinking about trying Wunderbrow. Like you, I have a lot of makeup brushes. I love love love trying new brands and have a mix of high end and super cheap. The great thing about brushes is that you can store them in just about anything. So many storage options to choose from. And something as simple as office supply products can look so cool on a vanity.
My next task will be to (finally) set up my nail station. I found some amazing storage items for polishes – one is a three tier spice rack for a cupboard. Works beautifully and fits any size and shape of bottle! I’m also on the lookout for a cool lazy susan to make more room on my vanity (which is basically a huge corner desk). I love that you can store so much on it and rotate it so you can still see everything but save space. Have you utilized a lazy susan for makeup before?
I love learning from other beauty babes so THANKS for sharing pics of your vanity! We own A LOT of the same products btw. I have a lot of clear acrylic organizers as well, they’re great. Plus, we have the same dresser sets from Ikea! You’ve got a really awesome set up – I enjoyed seeing it and getting new storage ideas. <3
Wow what a great idea to use all those items as storage, good thinking!!! And I am so happy you enjoyed my post XOXO!
