I used to take a very long time to get ready. It wasn’t because it took me a long time to put my makeup on (I can do a fire cat eye in, like, 6.5 seconds, tyvm), it’s because I could never find the products I needed when I wanted to use them. I would spend literally forever searching for that perfect lip stain or that one highlighter in my unorganized mess of products. It was a waste of time and low-key stressful. Then I discovered makeup organizers and my life was legit changed. They help keep my collection organized, make sure that everything is in the right place, and look really good on my vanity too. So instead of shoving all your makeup into Diptyque glasses like every other human on Instagram does, try out one of these makeup organizers below. You’ll never waste time looking for a product again.

Best Makeup Organizer for Eyeliners

Because of their shape and size, eyeliners can be really freaking hard to keep organized. Instead of tearing apart your makeup bag to find that one black liquid eyeliner you love, keep them all handy and easy to find in this pretty makeup organizer. There are 26 slots, enough room to even add your lip liners.


Best Makeup Organizer for Lipstick

I mean, how cute would this lipstick makeup organizer look on your vanity!? It is only $8 and has space for 40 lipsticks, perfect for anyone who is obsessed with having a bunch of different lip colors to choose from.


Best Makeup Organizer for Nail Polish

Home-It Nail Polish Holder

I used to keep all my nail polishes in a bag. Then, one night when I was trying to find my favorite polish that was stuck somewhere at the bottom, the entire bag fell over….It was a messy disaster, to say the least. Thankfully, I’ve avoided any spills since, thanks to this makeup organizer. This acrylic case holds up to 60 bottles (!!) and makes your nail polishes way easier to reach.
