How To Store Make-up Palettes

Up until recently, I had no idea how to store my make-up palettes. Usually, I just stuff whatever make-up I have into my giant acrylic organizer (found at my happy place, The Container Store).


Previously, everything was stuffed into here

I found an organization hack that helped me declutter the vanity + repurpose something that I’m sure most of you have laying around your house.

Grab a paper sorter – you can find super cheap ones in the office section of any furniture or organization store. I had bought mine for my desk, but found that I wasn’t actually using it much. It needed a new purpose! Then, put all your palettes together, with the largest on the bottom.


Take your palettes and put them in the sorter by size, with the tallest in the back. This way, you can see all of your palettes at one glance!


And viola! Set your sorter anywhere you want for a simple, efficient + elegant organizing solution! Next step: spray paint the sorter gold 🙂

P.S. This organizing trick isn’t just for palettes! You can try it with anything of that shape — books, magazines, popcorn packets — have fun with it!
