Top 10 Beauty Organizers

Affiliate Links

Organizing is my favorite and nothing needs organized as much as my beauty arsenal. If you follow me on Snapchat (blushingnoir) then yesterday you saw the mess that is my lip product stash. I haven’t quite gotten to organizing those.. yet. There are so many things to organize beauty products it can be tough to choose – here is a list of the Top 10 Beauty Organizers that I own and also a few that I’m lusting for.

  1. Sherrieblossom ICEbOX($415.00 // Sherriblossom). My numero uno! It I could own every single one of these things I totally would. The one that I have is the ICEbOX Wide and it holds quite a bit of my favorite makeup items that I use on a daily basis. I’m looking at the Skinny Mini next to keep directly on my vanity. Original review.
  2. Hold Me Bag($75.00 – $95.00 // Amazon). When you need to travel with a lot of stuff but need to keep it organized and secure this is what you want. I first got this back in 2013 and have used it on every single trip I’ve gone on since. Original review.
  3. IKEA Alex Drawer Unit ($79.00 // IKEA). Are you tired of bloggers and vloggers saying they have this or the Helmer? I bought two of them and use them in my office with a slab in between them as a desk. I keep product on top of it that I need to post about and I also use the surface for photography. Why do we all have them? They’re necessary.
  4. Recollections™ Organizer Cube 3 Drawer ($39.99 // Michael’s). If you’re in the market for something similar to the IKEA Alex and you don’t want to drop all the money you can grab this small storage from Michael’s. There are several sizes available and it’s very sturdy. I also bought some scrapbook paper to decorate the front. When you use that 40% off coupon it’s a really good deal! Original review.
  5. Zahra Beauty 5 Slot Organizer($25.00 // Zahra Beauty). This was the brands collab with YouTuber CoffeeBreakWithDani – I’m a fan of hers but I’d have bought this one anyway. It’s perfect to hold your favorite brushes, pencils, lip products… a must have for vanity organization.
  6. Zahra Beauty Spinning Lipstick Tower($99.00 // Zahra Beauty). I need this one. It’s on my list and I think it’ll really make my lip product collection look a lot more organized. Also, my office is screaming “WANT THAT” and I have to listen to my office. A lot of color options are available but I’m going for the gold!
  7. Empty Palettes. Z Palettes are probably the most widely known but Morphe carries some that are similar and a lot cheaper! There are different sizes available to suit your needs and I’ve found this is a great way to store shadows and blushes to save on space. Plus it’s nice to see so many laid out together – you’ll get more use out of them than if they were shoved in a drawer as singles. Some of my other favorites are from NARS and MAC.
  8. Sonia Kashuk® Beauty Organizer ($24.99 // Target). Of course I got the Cheetah print but it’s an older style which might not be available. However, there are others you can grab and I’m sure more will be released in the future. This has a lot of pockets and compartments for your goods. Perfect for a smaller collection, essentials and travel.
  9. Organizing Trays. I have some white plastic ones in my IKEA Alex that I picked up at Big Lots but these ones from Target are similar. It’s going in a drawer so it doesn’t have to be fancy. If you’re into fancy you can always paint them or bedazzle… whatever creative thing you can think of 😉
  10. Jewelry Armoire. I bought an old jewelry armoire off of Craiglist, in great shape – very inexpensive (I only paid $50) but good quality – and re-purposed it into a storage area for my makeup! You can see a bit of it in this post.

4 Beauty Tools I Can’t Live Without

Press Sample/Affiliate Links

Beauty tools are all around us (thankfully) and they’re in place to make our lives easier. What would we have done without of off these wonderful gadgets that curl our hair, apply our makeup flawlessly, help us self-clean… I know you don’t have all day, so I’ll just assume you know what I’m babbling on about.

Here are a few of my favorite beauty tools and gadgets that I tried out in 2015!

Morphe Brushes. Morphe is such a new love of mine. I saw a video from Jaclyn Hill about her fave Morphe brushes and immediately sent my mom my Christmas wish list (What? You don’t?). She got me a few brushes, the 35T shadow palette and Jeffree Star Redrum Velour Liquid Lipstick. A fan girl is born.

Since then I’ve been watching all of the YouTube videos I can and making more must have lists. I even joined the LiveGlam Monthly Brush Club (called #MorpheMe) where for $19.99 a month you get at least $30 worth of Morphe brushes. Much better than beauty samples, right?! They ship really fast and you get access to special discounts on the Morphe website. In my first shipment I got the M208, M173, M209, M167, M200, M176, M217 and M215. Right now it’s sold out but be sure to join the waiting list!!

Jewelry cleaner. A lot of places don’t charge to clean your jewelry but some do, particularly if you didn’t buy your jewelry there. I went to Tiffany once a few years ago to get one of their necklaces cleaned and it was $15!???????? I have too many pieces of jewelry for that mess so I clean my stuff at home.

Lately I’ve been using products from Connoisseurs. The Sonic Dazzle Stick($34.99 // Target)* is a hand-held tool that cleans your jewelry like a pro would. Two non-toxic gels are included – one for gold, diamonds and fashion jewelry and one for silver. The Dazzle Drops Advanced Jewelry Cleaner($8.99 // Target)* is fresh every time and includes enough product for 80 cleanings. There is also a Dazzle Drops Silver Jewelry Cleaner($8.99 // Target)* that will remove dirt and any tarnishing from silver jewelry – it’s even safe to use with silver jewelry that holds gemstones! Money saved on cleaning jewelry means more makeup and handbags can be bought 😉

Kiss Instawave Automatic Curler($49.99 // ULTA Beauty)*. Sometimes you just want pretty waves without the hassle of an actual curling iron. This is particularly true when I’m doing my daughters hair. The Kiss Instawave Automatic Curler was a savior for me over the holiday season. My daughter always wants her hair curled for special occasions like her momma and this made it that much quicker to get both of our hair styled. My daughters hair probably holds curl worse than mine does and when I use the Instawave on her we get a good couple of hours out of the style rather than 15 minutes.

At Home Laser Treatments. This day-and-age there are so many gadgets for us to de-hair ourselves with! In 2015 I did a four post series review of the tria Hair Removal Laser 4x($449.00 // Sephora)* and it’s been an essential part of keeping unwanted hairs out of my life. Initially it’s quite the investment, but if you get it during a 20% off sale or during some sort of beauty insider or VIB perk it’ll cut the cost and be so worth it! (note: my series with tria was sponsored, but this inclusion was not – I put it in here because it really is one of my favorite beauty gadgets!).

My next beauty tool purchase is going to be a simplehuman Sensor Makeup Mirror($200.00 // Neiman Marcus). Again, another investment that I’m going to want to get on discount BUT I’ve been looking to upgrade for awhile now and I think it’ll streamline my small vanity space. Also I need a new vanity, but that’s an entirely different post.
