Reorganize and Store Your Makeup With The Best Acrylic Cases
Organizing your makeup collection is an important step in keeping your makeup investment in good shape. Yes, I know – before you think to yourself, “wow, she is truly makeup addicted”, I know I am – or “was” I should say (well still kinda am lol). You have to take into account when I was in my 20’s and 30’s, I was a professional cosmetologist and makeup artist – so there’s that. (Wow, that’s a great excuse, isn’t it? :) Well, now that we got that over with, I must tell you about the most awesome makeup storage cases ever! Yes, ever!
First, a little back-story about how I found these. They are all the rage now, but when I started using them, they weren’t, so that makes me feel like a bit of a trendsetter :)
I worked in NYC for many years and discovered this awesome shop called Muji. They happened to be located two blocks from where I worked. How lucky I was to discover them. It was as if I entered a labyrinth for organizational addicts!
So…as I was saying. Muji acrylic cases are the best. I’ve seen competitors charge up to 3x’s the price! I’ve had mine for over 7 years and they are still going strong. They have different styles to choose from as well.

OK, so back to my mess. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve reorganized my makeup. When I worked in the city, I had to wear a full face of makeup every day and by the end of the week, my makeup was a huge mess of items flung and not placed back where I got them. Once I got these acrylic cases, that all changed. I would take a product out and put it back where I got it from. Easy Peasy!
Now that I am not working in the city anymore, I have given away a boatload of makeup mainly to my daughter and a few friends. I only keep what I love and need, and only buy what I love and need too. Oh, one of the perks of being a makeup artist is you get a huge percentage off makeup from companies like MAC, Makeup Forever, and Inglot. I often receive a discount of 40%!
Because I’m an organizing freak, I’m continually purchasing makeup storage products and always end up going back to my Muji acrylic cases.
My vanity takes a daily beating. I bought this vanity not two years ago and look at what I’ve done to it – yikes! Makeup prints, dings, and being just plain careless! I’m a careless mess at times! :)
Update! Be sure to check out the completed makeup vanity transformation – I love the way it turned out and I know it’s going to inspire you too.
I’ve tried other acrylic makeup storage, and nope – wasn’t working. Dust got all over my makeup because it was not covered properly. I thought the two makeup storage holders below would make things easier to grab and see. If I had more room, I would totally have a larger vanity! (Carolann you have issues!)
I also house my makeup
obsession collection on one shelf in my armoire, and I use this chest of drawers as well. I refinished that piece last year with the intentions of using that for makeup storage as well. Please click here to see that finished project. Below, you will see some pics of how I organize my makeup using that chest of drawers.
Things have dramatically changed since I wrote this blog post. I have reorganized all my makeup once again so be sure to check out my latest makeup adventures.
Then there was this mess which I finally made neat and tidy and made good use of my Muji Acrylic makeup storage cases.
These are some of my lipsticks and brushes. I like using the acrylic brush holders too – it makes accessing them so easily. I bought the two brush storage holders below at Bed, Bath, and Beyond.
These are the vanity drawers that I neatly organized as well!
And after reorganizing my makeup using my Muji Acrylic storage cases, I now have this on top of my vanity!
Every product is now covered and easy to get to! I’ll never try any other makeup storage again! I can’t wait to complete refinishing this vanity with my chalk paints. Stay tuned for the completed project coming soon! Be sure to check out these Muji acrylic cases – I know you will love them as much as I do!
