Cheap, Easy Makeup Organization Ideas To Reclaim Space
1. Clean Brush Holder
This brush holder is fully enclosed, so it prevents bacteria from entering and sticking to your brushes. Of course, you still want to clean your brushes at least once a month (soap and water will do!). I also love the fact that it’s transparent so you can immediately find what you’re looking for quickly. It saves you a great deal of time in the morning.
This unique makeup organizer can store all those brushes, lipsticks, palettes and even more. Shop for yours here.

5. Copper Cups
Looking for minimalist DIY makeup organizers? Buy some large cups at the dollar store, spray paint them, attach them on a wood pallet and mount them on the wall. If you prefer, you can just place them on top of your counter. They’ll look just as gorgeous.
6. Vanity Dresser
Admit it. We all want DIY makeup organizers with a mirror. Nothing beats a nice, clean dresser with some good lighting and sufficient space for all your makeup products. The best vanity dressers, however, can be insanely expensive. So, I found this easy DIY vanity lighting tutorial on YouTube from Lisa Pullano. Or, check out this super affordable DIY ring light you can use to get those Instagram-worthy selfies.
7. Makeup Drawer
Turn your drawer into the perfect DIY makeup organizer! Grab your unused canisters, cut up vacant shoeboxes and rummage through your extra office supplies to create the perfect organizer for all your makeup products.
8. Wire Baskets
Sometimes no matter how much you want it, there’s just NOT-ENOUGH-SPACE. Don’t fret. Here’s one of the smartest DIY makeup organizer ideas: two-tiered wire baskets. In fact, you can make them three or four-tiered – whatever number you like! You can find these at most craft stores. Alternatively, you can make something similar to this.
9. Magnetic Makeup Boards
Turn your makeup products into a pretty presentation by putting them in a frame! You can then hang your magnetic makeup board anywhere, saving you a lot of counter space. Learn how to make your own magnetic makeup board here.
10. Repurposed Candle Jars
Repurposed candle jars are perfect for girls who have tons of lipstick and gloss. They allow for easy access to your favorite shade without messing up the entire arrangement. Stack them together, like what you see above, or place them next to one another.
11. Wall Mount
By now, you already have a good idea that I love mounting things such as DIY makeup organizers on walls. Your walls are the most underutilized part of the house, and hanging your organizer makes an excellent alternative to having standard pictures frames. This DIY makeup organizer I found on Etsy is one of those wall-mountable designs that has plenty of room for storage.
12. DIY Hanging Organizer
If you’ve maximized your wall space, how about the back of your door? This is one of the most ingenious DIY makeup organizers, and it’s really affordable. Make it today with this tutorial. Don’t have the time? Then buy this shoe organizer on Amazon for less than $10, and place your makeup inside each compartment. Works the same way.
13. Rolling Cart
This space-efficient, rolling cart DIY makeup organizer is perfect for those makeup addicts who don’t have much space to work with. It’s multi-tiered, so there’s a lot of storage available. It also has caster wheels so you can do your makeup in the bathroom, in the bedroom – practically everywhere in the home.
After you’ve unboxed your makeup, don’t throw the boxes away yet. You can also use them to organize makeup. Get some inspiration from this video of Yvette Polanka:
