5 Makeup Tray Organizer Ideas To Help You Get Your Ish Together

If your morning routine ends with shoving your products into makeup bags or Ziploc containers, it's time for you to clean up your act and invest in a makeup tray (or two).

Whether you're a Sephora Beauty Insider or just a mascara-and-Carmex kind of gal, here are a few ideas that will motivate you to keep your makeup organized.

1. Repurpose your grandmother's fine glassware to bundle your makeup brushes and mascara wands with a touch of class.

2. Keep touch-up essentials like cotton swabs and Q-tips in arm's reach by upcycling candle jars. Just be sure to give them a thorough cleaning!

3. Acrylic makeup trays bring a sense of structure to any cosmetics clutter. Plus, they make it easier to see everything.

4. Cake stands used as tiered organizers also keep your makeup products from spilling all over the place.

5. Not enough space on your bedroom dresser? Stash your lipsticks, eyeshadows and pressed powders in a drawer. Just make sure you stay on top of those makeup expiration dates.
