Make-up Storage
I tried finding a thread on this but I couldn't, excuse me if this has been done before

I was wondering how does everyone here store their make-up? In a professional case, beautifully displayed in your bedroom, a vanity? Basically I wanted to see how everyone around here does it, for inspiration, tips, etc

I only use a few items at a time, because I stick to one simple favorite look except for special occasions. So I keep the 3-4 items I regularly use in a little pouch in my bag, have duplicate items and two extra lipstick colors in a basket in front of the bathroom mirror, and keep the rest stored away in the cabinet.

Most of what I have is out in my bath, but I do have replacement items and things I rarely use in my linen closet.

I have glass corner shelves in my bath. On the lower shelf I keep eye creams and the creams I wear at night, as well as glass containers with Q-tips, cotton pads, etc. Also a basket of blushers. On the upper shelf I keep a glass open-mouth vase with bath salts, and two baskets. One has products I use on my face--sunscreen, foundation, concealer, etc. The other has eyeshadows.

I also have wicker shelves that are mostly for perfume and hair products, but I also have there a stainless steel pencil cup where I keep liners, brushes, glosses, and mascara.

In my bag, I have a small mirrored case that fits 3 lipsticks, and a woven leather bag where I keep all my other lipsticks, other than duplicates, which live in my linen closet. When I'm doing my makeup at home, I use gloss, and when I'm out, I use lipstick.

There's a need for more individuality today, and my job is to cater to women, not dictate to them.

I use an empty candle glass to store all my brushes, pencils, mascara etc, and I keep all my compacts (I think have 6-7) and my foundation standing upright in a white box (It came with a pair of earrings). That way I can take the glass in one hand and the box in the other and carry it all with me to whichever room has the best lighting when I apply my makeup It is also really practical because I can see all my makeup at once, and they compacts arent't floating around in a bag and getting damaged... I keep a duplicate of my lipstick or a lpbalm in my coat and bag. Works for me.

Sure. I'm decent.

I have a smaller bathroom space now, so I use the same acrylic organizers (from Makeup Box Shop), but instead of having them on display in the bathroom I have them tucked away in the wardrobe. I have a smaller acrylic tray that I keep in the bathroom cupboard that holds all of the products in my current rotation. Here's how I used to have it set up:
