Organized Makeup Drawer~

Yes, I am still here.  Took some time off to catch up on things around the house, read a few of the many books that I have been meaning to get to, hang out with my little ones on Wednesday mornings and squeezing in doctors appointments.

I usually keep most things fairly organized.  I just function better when everything is neat and tidy, and in its place.

However, recently my makeup drawer had become a disaster.

A jumbled up mess!

There were several things that just needed to be pitched, things that had either seen their day or that I no longer used.  But, the biggest problem was all the little pots of Mac eyeshadow I had acquired.  I was tired of searching through the jumbled pile to find the shade I was looking for.

So after thinking about it, and searching on Pinterest for some ideas, I came across the perfect solution...a very inexpensive ice cube tray.  I have used these in the past for things.  My youngest actually uses one in a shallow dresser drawer at school to store her earrings.  Each section is the perfect size for the Mac eye shadow pots.

No more searching!  And, my favorite color corrector and concealer fit too.

So much better!

Perfect solution.

Have you organized anything lately with a cheap quick fix???

What a fabulous idea! I have make up drawer envy. Looks like you give Bobbi Brown a lot of business! I like it too. Have a wonderful evening.

This is so smart - I like the idea for earrings too. I bet I have an old ice tray around :-)

have a wonderful weekend!

That is great way to organize your shadows! I just started wearing Bobbi Brown lipstick and love it. I've been a Lancôme girl with lipstick. I can see you're a fan of a Bobbi Brown!
