The Prettiest Ways To Organize Your Beauty Products

It may come as no surprise that I have a lot of beauty products (we’re talking hundreds, and hundreds). But I don't like to shove them into drawers and bins where they will be forgotten about and left to expire. So over the years, I've come up with creative ways to keep my products on display and organized. Click through to see pictures from my humble abode and see how I've managed to keep my bounty of beauty products in their natural habitat.

A glass jewelry box from Urban Outfitters sits on my dresser as the home to all of my favorite lip products. The compartments are perfectly sized for sticks and balms and the drawer holds my favorite lip glosses. I love the clear top because I can see everything inside and nothing gets ignored. Urban Outfitters Glass Jewelry Box, $49, available at Urban Outfitters.

I keep my everyday makeup in a simple basket from Crate & Barrel. You can find similar options at any craft store or flea market. The small size and shallow depth help me to keep my daily staples under control, which is no easy task! When things start overflowing, I know it’s time to downsize. The basket lives in my bathroom where I also keep my brushes in a mug from Anthropologie (adorned with an L for Lara, natch). Anthropologie Monogrammed Mug, $8, available at Anthropologie.

This little box from C. Wonder sits on my nightstand and keeps all of my bedtime essentials safe and sound. I always have Mane Message Hair Ties, a pillow spray, Tata Harper’s Stress Treatment, and plenty of lip balm handy. The decorative bone is eye-catching and the wood inlay is practical for storing my little treasures.

I treated myself to this vintage tray at an antique shop on my 31st birthday and I absolutely love it. I keep it on my dresser where it serves as the perfect spot for my favorite scents, hand creams, and my favorite Christian Dior Lip Balm. The tray is glamorous and elegant — makes me think of my grandma’s dressing table.

I never knew such thing as a lipstick holder even existed, but once I spotted it, I knew my life wouldn’t be complete until it was sitting on my dresser. It keeps my six most favorite (of-the-moment) lipsticks all in a row. I love the way that it makes my makeup look like décor and I’m easily able to pick and commit to a lip color for day or night. Clearly, in my case, it’s pink ... or pink.
