You've Marie Kondo-ed every corner of your home, adopted a 30-day cleaning challenge, and fully embraced the capsule wardrobe way of life, but you’re probably forgetting one space that most likely needs some orderly love. If you have your lipstick assortment shoved into a random drawer or a plastic tub spilling over with tubes of concealer and mascara, it might be time to tackle your makeup collection with the help of the best makeup organizers.
If the thought of cleaning your fridge or sock drawer sounds more pleasant than decluttering your tubs that may or may not have expired makeup (it’s okay, I've got lipstick from high school, too), you’re not alone. Typically it’s closets, pantries, and desks that get all the fancy guides and organizational attention, but with any extra time on your hands and a few new items, a tidy makeup collection isn’t as far-fetched as you’d think — no magical books or methods necessary.
Luckily, organizers have been upgraded from the plastic tubs and flimsy bags you're probably used to from your early years of makeup collecting. Hard cases with numerous compartments, adjustable spinning bamboo carousels, and chic, sturdy, and stackable acrylic dividers are all available options for working your collection into a more manageable system. Plus, there’s no better time to whip your cosmetic collection into shape than when you’re stuck at home.
Ahead aren’t just any makeup organizers — according to their reviews, they’re best in class. Sort through these 13 picks and find one (or several) to help you get your collection neat and tidy.
