Creative Way To Re-Organize Your Make-Up & Save Counter Space

For months (years?) my husband has subtly and not so subtly asked me to re-organize my make-up that has, over the years, grown to take up an entire half of our small hall bathroom (that the kids and guests use).  I didn't disagree with him - but we didn't have a lot of other options... we share an even smaller master bathroom that is more of my beauty things (hair and skin) and his things.  And our hall closet is stuffed with towels, sheets, backup products, meds, travel products, etc.

Enter a trip to Hobby Lobby, 3 new Creative Options storage compartments and a couple hours of cleaning and organizing later... We have counter space again.  And now I'm looking around my house for other things I could use a variety of these functional storage boxes for.

But before I move on to other spaces, here is how I tackled this space:

So, I purchased a few different sizes of Creative Options' project boxes - which came with inserts so you can customize each box to the specific sized compartments you need.  While Creative Options storage boxes are typically for crafting supplies, they come in some any different sizes and styles that you can really get creative with them.

They actually make fantastic make-up storage!  They are easy to open/close for easy access, clear - so you can see which one you need to grab, and durable for stacking.  I chose to get 3 different sizes so that I could organize each one by products/stage of when I am using specific beauty products. 

My Three Boxes:

I used the medium utility box for my skin products (daily lotion, make-up primer, foundations, under eye concealer and blemish cover-up.

I used the small utility box for my lip sticks and glosses (that aren't scattered across all my purses), and blush.

Then, I use the larger utility box for most everything else - eye liner, shadows, mascaras, special occasion make-up, etc.

And the best part.  I now can take them out and put them away easily in the cabinet space below the sink. So, all the products are out of sight when I am not using them, but super simple to grab, open and use  and keep the products organized when I am. 

I think I'm actually going to get another medium sized one to organize some other miscellaneous beauty products (like bronzer, brushes, brush cleaner, etc) that are stashed in a drawer and in pencil holder currently.
