Organizing my space is an ongoing task. I frequently try to think of better ways to clear the clutter and to be more efficient in my daily routine, especially when it comes to work. For me that entails organizing a never-ending supply of beauty products; including my personal stash, PR samples, and products from photography clients. I simply have to keep these things organized.
When sorting any space in your home or workplace, it's best to start with the right organizational products. I've rounded up my favorites that combine functionality with beauty, and they're each quite affordable too! The products featured here are affiliate links. See full disclosure below.

Whether you have a large amount of beauty products for everyday use, or you simply want a way to organize all of your makeup, skincare, and other beauty products into one easily-accessible display; a multi-tier rotating organizer is the way to go. This Rotating Cosmetics Storage Rack is just $16.99. It has adjustable shelves and is available in black, pink, or white.
If you have a smaller amount of everyday beauty products that need to be easily accessible on a vanity or dresser, this Lunmore Desktop Storage Organizer doubles as a cute and affordable makeup organizer. It's under $10, comes in green and white or pink and white, and you can customize the compartments. I love how it's used in the photo above, though I'd probably use the back compartment for my everyday makeup brushes and the shallow tray part to hold my blending sponges. I am definitely adding this one to my cart...in pink of course!
This had me wondering, which other kinds of cheap office accessories could double as affordable beauty-product storage? After a quick search for "makeup organizers" in the "Office Products" category, I was happy to find several options. This multi-functional Clear Plastic Drawer Organizer for example is such a pretty way to store your extra beauty products in a vanity or bathroom drawer. And at just $16.99, it's so affordable.
If you have more eyeliners and lip liners than you know what to do with, an angled pen organizer is such a great way to keep them organized and within reach. The vertical design makes this one perfect for smaller spaces. Though it's versatile for larger spaces, as you can simply add on more compartments as-needed. This desktop pen organizer is only $16.99 for a set of three and is available in white or black.
If you're looking for a more elegant yet affordable counter-top makeup holder, this Glass Cosmetic Brushes Organizer is still reasonably priced at about $15. Like the Desktop Storage Organizer I mentioned up above, this one is great for organizing thin, tall items, like makeup brushes or liners. Though it's more beautiful than practical, it's perfect for both organizing and displaying your everyday products. If you plan to put it on a bathroom counter near a sink, opt for a makeup brush holder with lid . It's more pricey (over $30), but it will protect your brushes from water, and it comes with the little pearl fillers at no extra cost.
An affordable way to get in on the marble trend when it comes to beauty organization is with faux marble. I depend on multiple marble-finish accessories for my beauty-product photography, but purchasing all of those in real marble just isn't practical as they get to be quite heavy, and the costs can add up quickly. Faux marble can look just as beautiful at a much lower price. This marble pattern Luxspire Vanity Tray for example is perfect for arranging everyday makeup and jewelry or your most Instagram-worthy skincare routine; and it's only $12.99.
If you like to update your decor often, a set of clear canisters is an easy way to switch things up. Colored beads help the products to stand upright, and when you're ready for an accessory refresh, simply change out the beads for a different color or go glam with little faux diamonds. You can go with glass jars, or you can save a little on cost by using clear acrylic containers, like this Clear Plastic Apothecary Jar set for only $14.99.
This DUcare Makeup Brush Storage Holder is much more suited to modern decor, and it also doubles as a practical way to dry your brushes after washing them. The little silicone teeth make it a versatile holder that could be used to organize anything from liners, lip pencils, mascara, or lip gloss; in addition to makeup brushes. It comes in a variety of colors, and it can be used horizontally or vertically. At just over $10, you could grab a few of them!
For the ever-expanding makeup collection, your best bet is going to be one of the larger stacking sets, like this HBlife Makeup Organizer. It allows you to start out small, with just a few drawers, then you can add on various elements from a nail polish holder to multiple open compartments. With a design that is meant to grow vertically, you won't have to worry about clearing more surface space. This one is about $30, but considering the practicality and how much makeup it can store, it's a great deal.
For all-in-one makeup storage, my personal favorite is one I already own. You may have seen this large white makeup organizer on my Instagram. It's a decent size, but it isn't too big, and I love the wide drawer for storing jewelry and larger palettes. Though it's plastic, and very affordable at under $20, it looks much more elegant than most of the other plastic makeup organizers I've seen.
I hope these picks give you some major inspo when it comes to organizing your beauty products. Let me know in the comment section below which one is your fave!
