All makeup organisation efforts start off with the best of intentions—every pot and compact in its place. But somehow you end up with eye shadows stacked on top of other eye shadows, lip gloss rolling around with the eyeliners, and more than a few misplaced pencils.

Tracking down the one rogue lipstick you want to wear is an unnecessary frustration we’ve all encountered at one point. And it’s also a thing of the past, if you turn your makeup drawer into a lipstick organizer. All you need for this DIY is a few cardboard boxes. Or if store-bought is more your speed, try this 24-Lipstick Acrylic Organizer ($7) from The Container Store.
If storage space is at premium in your apartment, take your makeup collection, and hang it up. Hanging shoe or jewelry organizers (like this Canvas 80-Pocket Hanging Jewelry Organizer ($25) from The Container Store) are larger enough to house your entire assortment, without taking up precious drawer space.
When clever space-saving organizers just aren’t going to cut it, add a set of shelves grand enough to house all of your most-prized beauty products. Because who wouldn’t want a whole shelf dedicated to body oils?
