  • I have a small three drawer thing and keep the make up I use in the top drawer. The rest of it is in a basket on the linen shelf. 

    I LOVE what you have yours in. That is wicked cool.

  • Holy Makeup Batwoman!

    I own One Mineral Powder w/ a brush, One Finishing Dust, One Lip Color, One mascara, One Eyeliner and One set of 4 eyeshadows... That's it. It all fits in my purse...

    Why would you need all that extra stuff?

  • I just have a very large cosmetic bag that goes under the sink, I would love to have something like what you have but i can't handle stuff on the counter and plus we have a smaller bathroom :)

  • Sabrina, you would "need" that much makeup if you attempted to do more than one look a day. Some people are into makeup more and wear variations -- I have work looks, going out looks -- my full makeup requires primer, foundation, concealer, highlighting cream, blush, eyeliner, 3-6 eyeshadows for an eye look depending on the eye, a certain type of mascara depending on the look I'm going for that night (I have several), an eyeliner (sometimes you want a kohl pencil line, sometimes you want a liquid liner), eyebrow pencil and finishing powder to make it stay.

  • i have the EXACT same 3-drawer thingie SpiritedWitch posted. only the bottom drawer has makeup in it tho...just the everyday stuff. i keep all my extra eyeliners & shadows in a satchel case under the sink. the other 2 are jewelry & hair stuff.

  • what about an over the door shoe rack? You could hang over the linen closet door or if that is not in your bathroom,use the back of the bathroom door.
