Inexpensive Makeup Organizers and Storage

Ikea Helmer2

Some of my own makeup stashed away in another inexpensive storage solution, the Ikea Helmer as shown above.

I need a hell of a lot more storage than these cute little Makeup Organizers are offering but they are still a very cute, inexpensive way to store your essentials which you use daily.

They can even double up on your desk to hold pens, etc..

Take a look!

Makeup Organizers and Storage
Makeup Storage Unit
The larger organizer is $16.95 and the smaller is $14.95. Each has slots for lipsticks, brushes, well as small pull out drawers that you can tuck other bits and bobs into.

I thought they’d either make for a great way to store brushes or to just set up in your washroom with essentials like brushes you use daily, concealer, your primer, BB Cream, etc…!

They won’t hold a beauty junkie’s entire collection but if you don’t have a TON of makeup like most of us you might just find they do the job of holding your entire stash.

In that case, I say lucky you because I need an entire room to stash away my makeup πŸ™‚

These are available at

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    There are people with that little makeup? *boggles*

    What I need is a way to organize all my non-makeup items in the bathroom. Like, I hate having bottles of moisturizer and mouthwash and whatever else all over my counters, but there’s next to no storage space in there.

      Hello fellow Texan! That is truly the only toilet brush I’ve ever seen that I thought “Cute!!!”.

      Speaking of makeup organizing I just repurposed one of my bookshelves into a palette “library”. I love it:)

  • sataa

    Muse Can you please please please do a post showing your makeup collection I really want to see your treasure πŸ˜€

  • Sara Elisabeth

    Sometimes I wish I could start over. I have so many purchases I regret making!

  • Tavia

    Those beauty organizers are adorable…I’m already imagining them on my makeup table. Do you know if they ship to Europe as well? I have a similar beauty organizer from a transparent plastic material but it’s full already. πŸ™‚

      • Tavia

        I didn’t see anything there about international shipping so that’s why I was asking. πŸ™‚ I don’t want to have to make an account and at the end to tell me they don’t ship to Europe. Anyway I really love that beauty organizers πŸ™‚

  • Steffi

    I’m thinking of buying something, do you have a source code to let them know that you sent me to them?

  • ruthless

    I’ve always wondered about your stash… How many Helmers do you have? TELL US… I have two Alex cabinets, one for makeup one for nail polish

    • the Muse

      always wanted to do all alex cabinets! those are rocking! mmmm I have about 4 but also have other spots I store makeup πŸ˜€

  • Debbie

    I can see using either of these for my monthly makeup basket,,or holder,,as the case may be! ;D

  • Ryou

    This sounds like the perfect item to organize the products I wear everyday! I do have a milion lip and eye products, but I tend to stick to one or two face products — The organizer would eliminate the need to dig through my stash to find them. πŸ˜€

    Am I supposed to be keeping the boxes??!! After I decide it’s something that works/ doesn’t irritate me, I toss the box. In fact, I love that moment β€” it means it’s mine! But I never thought the box was important. Now I don’t have that much makeup and I use most everything. Don’t really have any LE. Should I start now??😳😳😳

  • Alanna

    I have a little white ikea vanity and these would match perfectly! I have a set of plastic drawers under it and a bunch of cute glasses and ceramics to hold things on top haha.

  • Kallie Mason

    They don’t have them at lakeside anymore :c anyone know where else you can get these? The small one is perfect for me
