With this storage idea, you get easy and instant access to your makeup goodies right underneath your table top.
4. GRUNDTAL Rail and Containers
The GRUNDTAL rail and containers may be a staple in the kitchen, but it is by no means just going to stay there! We love the rail and container combo for makeup storage as well. Put your makeup brushes there, your eyebrow grooming kit, or anything you need to quickly access. Best of all, it saves a lot of table space!
5. GODMORGON Box with Containers
The IKEA GODMORGON box with containers is an ideal make-up storage for those tiny goodies like lipsticks, lip balms, and eye pencil. You can also store some of your makeup palettes there. This acrylic makeup case is best placed on the tabletop or on a shelf.
6. SKURAR Plant Pot
I went to IKEA a few months ago and I’ve bought tons of SKURAR plants pots. It’s not just for my miniature plants but I use it for my makeup brushes, combs, pens, and what-not. These plant pots are so cute for makeup organization and so versatile—I just can’t get enough!
7. KOMPLEMENT Drawer with Glass Front
If you have wall shelves, then the KOMPLEMENT drawer with glass front is a good makeup storage idea for you. It’s the standard size, so it’s most likely to fit any wall shelf at home. What I really like about this one is the glass front as it helps see the items easier. It’s ideal for makeup organization and the perfect addition to your makeup room.
8. SOCKER Plant Pot with Holder
What’s with plant pots and makeup brushes? IKEA has another set of plant pots which makes great makeup brushes storage as well. While the SKURAR is cuter than this SOCKER plant pots set, this doubles as a cosmetic organizer and is best for people who really need several containers for their brushes all placed in one holder. A must-have to keep your makeup table clutter free.
9. RASKOG Utility Cart
Do you find yourself moving around the house when doing your makeup? If you do, you definitely need the RASKOG utility cart. No more carrying boxes and containers of makeup products ladies, just push and pull this cart and your makeup will be with you wherever you go! The ideal make-up storage for ladies who are always on the go.
10. RIBBA Picture Ledge
Using a picture ledge as makeup storage is another ingenious idea. This RIBBA picture ledge is great for storing your favorite China Glaze nail polish. In my case, I use it for my lipsticks! This way, I can see my lipstick haul together, access them quickly, and save space on my table top and drawers.
11. RATIONELL VARIERA Cutlery Trays
What about your drawers, you ask? How can you organize it? I suggest IKEA’s RATIONELL VARIERA Cutlery trays! Even though they’re primarily designed for your cutlery, you can also use it as a makeup drawer organizer.
12. BLOMSTER Bowl
Primarily intended for indoor plants, you can use this IKEA BLOMSTER bowl as your makeup brush storage as well. Just fill the bowl with crystal fills and stick your makeup brushes in there. Smart!
