Adding to a beauty product collection is always exciting. Each new item promises a fresher look and a renewed feeling of confidence. 

But as your collection continues to grow, you may have a very real problem on your hands: organization!

Don’t let your beauty products take over your drawers, bust the seams of your makeup bag, and spill out of your caddy. There are better ways to store your precious horde that can also help streamline your beauty routine.

Read on to learn seven creative ways to store your beauty products at home.

Spice Rack

Spice racks are traditionally used in the kitchen to keep your favorite meal-enhancing herbs and seasonings handy. But the size and style of certain types of spice racks makes them perfect for organizing small beauty baubles.

You may have seen what looks like a spice rack on the walls of your manicurist’s salon. You can replicate this nifty style in your apartment!

This ornate spice rack, specifically designed for nail polish, can add a decorative touch to your apartment. It can stand on your dressing table or hang on the wall, making it the perfect combination of versatility, use, and style.

You don’t have to use it just for nail polish, either. It can hold lipsticks, hairpins, under-eye hydrogel masks, and compacts. 

Utensil Holder

Utensil holders are another common kitchen item you may not realize can be repurposed. They’re perfect for housing your beauty products and keeping them tidy.

With many made from bamboo, plastic, and metal, it’s easy to find utensil organizers that fit your personal style and budget. 

Buy your favorite type, pop it in a drawer, and fill the slots with cosmetics, makeup brushes, and hair accessories. To stay organized, make sure you put your beauty products back in their specific slots after use.

Mason Jars

Mason jars have evolved beyond their original purpose of storing preserved foods for home canning.

Nowadays, people use them to hold candles, as soap dispensers, for transporting lunch, making overnight oats, and so much more. Including, you guessed it, creatively holding beauty products!

Here are some of our favorite ways to use this simple and sturdy glassware:

  • To hold disposable items, like cotton balls and swabs
  • To keep makeup brushes organized 
  • To store long, thin cosmetics, like mascara and eyeliner
  • To keep hair clips at the ready

Buy as many mason jars as you want, as they’re cheap, handy, and the possibilities are endless when it comes to using them for beauty product storage.

Desk Organizer

You may be accustomed to seeing desktop organizers in your home office or at work. They don’t look like much, but what they lack in style, they make up for in versatility. 

Why? Because these handy items can do so much more than hold folders and documents. They have compartments of different sizes and shapes to make them wonderfully multifunctional.

A mesh desktop organizer can organize your favorite beauty essentials, like dry shampoo, hair ties, hairbrushes, and makeup. It not only keeps your beauty products neat, but it can help organize them in a way that makes more sense with your routine. Save space and with one solution!

Clear Acrylic Desktop Drawers

Though traditionally used for office paper goods and other small knick-knacks, it’s easy to see how tabletop acrylic drawers can suit your beauty product storage needs.

Their design makes them a clever solution for organizing your makeup, chapstick, and small hair accessories. You can buy more than one set and easily stack them to save tabletop space.

They come in a variety of sizes and a number of drawer options. And because they’re clear, you can see the item you need instantly, which can be extra helpful when you’re getting ready during frantic mornings.

Storage Cart

A cute rolling cart makes a superb addition to your bathroom. You can keep it in a corner and roll it over to your tub before you shower to have all your favorite products nearby.

Use it to hold your:

  • Shampoos and conditioners
  • Body scrubs
  • Face cleansers
  • Hair dryers and curling irons
  • Towels

Apartment bathrooms often lack storage options, so a rolling storage cart can be an organizational lifesaver.

Tiered Cupcake Stand

Stylish and unique, a tiered cupcake stand can hold treats beyond the edible kind. If you’re looking for a beauty product storage solution that also adds a touch of elegance to your decor, this is it.

A cupcake stand makes a perfect display case for your favorite perfumes and smaller beauty accessories, like cosmetics, face masks, and sample goodies.

They don’t require much thought to use, either. Simply grab an item and go, then throw it back on a plate when you’re done. That’s all there is to it!

Tiered stands can be a cute and useful addition to your vanity tabletop. And because they allow you to stack your beauty products vertically, it’s another space-saving option as well.


Maybe you have a massive collection of beauty products and are running out of storage options. Or maybe you’re just looking to add some new options to your organizational repertoire.

Either way, you don’t have to use the same old, same old storage for your personal care items. Repurposing everyday items into unique organizational tools can spruce up your apartment and your personal care routine.

Harness your creativity and utilize these seven creative ways to organize and display your beauty products. They’ll make your space look neater and your beauty rituals much more fun.
