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.
If you scoot down, you will see my palettes standing in between the drawers and my lipstick organizer. I currently have the UD original, Becca x Jaclyn Hill Face Collection, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit, and my 2016 MAC Holiday Collection Nutcracker Sweet Warm Eye Compact. I use one of them every day, great investments.
Moving on to my lipstick/misc organizer, I house a lot things. I mean A LOT. I have my foundations, primers, and a pan concealer sitting towards the left. Then to the back-right: I have my mascaras, highlighting concealer, and color correcting concealer. Towards the front-right: I have two MAC lipsticks, one MAC Retro Liquid Lipstick, one henna lipstick, and a Clinique lipstick.
Then I have a cup that is full with brushes and an eyelash curler. Real Techniques, MAC, and ELF to name a few. The eyelash curler from Tweezerman.
If you made it to the end, you will see a bunch of random things. To the left, there is a stack of powders, then we see face sprays, a face oil, a daily brush cleaner, a stack of lashes, and finally my mirror.
It seems like a lot of things, but your girl gotta be prepared. Tell me in the comments how you store/stored your makeup products in college or how you store them right now.
Happy Friday ^_^
