I'll admit it: Most of my makeup is stored in a box. The rest is in my makeup bag, and my brushes occasionally make their way back to a cup I've designated for them. I appreciate the art of makeup organization, but I've never found a pretty makeup organizer that's made me want to bother with it. This is perhaps because I'd have to own up to still owning a lot of makeup from Claire's if I were ever to display my beauty products. I also never understood the need of having all your lipsticks lined up in a grid of plastic — until compiling this list, that is.
As the messiest Virgo who's ever existed, it's probably in my best interest to invest in one of these aesthetically-pleasing makeup organizers. Although I find the clear plastic ones boring and held onto that excuse at any opportunity, I am now void of any reason for not having perfectly organized (and clean) makeup. Plus, think about how cute it's all going to look on my Instagram.
Personally, I'm sold. Makeup has been an obsession of mine for years, and now I'm well on my way to adding makeup organization to my multifaceted list of reasons for loving the beauty industry. Take my money, makeup organizer creators, because these products are too cute not to own.
