I think the best product I ever purchased to store my makeup products in was an acrylic drawer set from here. At first, my makeup was stored on my side table parallel to my window. However, that is also where my heater is located and it clicked in my mind that heat and makeup don't go well together. Well, unless your are baking or applying concealer, ok, that is besides the point. I decided to move all my makeup onto my desk under the shelf. It is quite difficult to explain, maybe you can see it in a room tour post, hmmm????
Anyways, at the start of the row, you will see my acrylic drawers. On top, I like to put my beauty sponges, any used eyelashes, and my Rimmer bronzer (with my MAC Soft'n Gentle, which I later discovered fell behind my desk). The upper drawer contains the following eye products: my Jenn Im x Colourpop Quad, MAC pigments, eyeliners, lash glue, and a MAC Creme Color Base. The second drawer contains the majority of my lip products being lipsticks, lip glosses, Benefit tints, lipliners, and a chapstick.
