Ways to Organize Your Dream Vanity Station on a Budget!

A beautiful vanity is at the top of every girl’s wish list. Whether you’re an ultra-glam type of girl or you’re all about the basics, let’s keep your beauty drawer organized with a little DIY. Trust me, getting ready in the morning is way easier when you know exactly where everything is!

So how do you build your dream beauty station without spending a fortune? All you need is a bit of resourcefulness! Chances are, you probably already have what you’ll need lying around the house, to take your vanity to the next level. 

Here are a couple of everyday items that you can add to your vanity to create the perfect makeup storage situation!

1. Glass cups to store your makeup brushes and lippies

Get a set of drinking glasses to add your vanity! Instead of spending money on a holder for your makeup brushes or an acrylic storage set, take a minimalist approach by using drinking glasses as a sleek (and cost-effective) way to showcase your makeup collection!

2. A contact lens case for false eyelashes

Store your false eyelashes in an empty (and new) contact lens case! This is a great way to reduce clutter while keeping your falsies in good shape until you’re ready to use them.

3. Candy jar for nail polish

Get rid of all the fuss by tossing all your nail polish into a candy jar! A glass candy jar is a perfect way to organize your nail polish collection. It’s also a great way to enhance the overall aesthetic of your tabletop.

4. Sort your eye makeup with an ice cube tray

Anyone else ever notice that the tiniest container to store your makeup sometimes costs just as much as the makeup itself from affordable brands? From eyeshadow singles to eyebrow pomade, ice cube trays will do the trick. For a more cohesive look, line your beauty drawer with a couple trays to organize your smaller makeup products!

5. Use pretty wrapping paper or fabric to give old containers a makeover

The best way to get rid of all the clutter in your beauty drawer? Separate all the makeup that you use more consistently from the ones that rarely see the daylight!

Grab a larger container, perhaps a tin can from your snack collection. Take some wrapping paper or fabric and use a glue gun to keep the material in place.

By tossing all your ‘extra’ makeup products into its own container, you can get rid of all the clutter!
