2. Cake stands

Despite its name, cake stands can be brought beyond the kitchen counter and onto your vanity table to as a makeup organiser for your beauty products, perfumes and jewellery. Pick a tiered cake stand, or a bird cage cake stand to stylishly display your precious beauty loots!

3. Makeup trays

Even if you aren’t the most organised person when it comes to your makeup collection, you might just want to do it for the gram. Embellish your vanity table with exquisite gold trays or marble trays which double up as great makeup organisers! They help to segregate your new loots from the old ones, making your vanity table picture-perfect from every angle!

The perfect liquid lipstick formula: ✔️ Lightweight and comfortable ✔️ Long lasting yet non-drying ✔️ Liquid texture for an effortless application but not too runny that it would smudge on your teeth (or flick everywhere when you pull out the applicator) ✔️ Delicate scent or non-chemical smell ✔️ Transfer-proof yet easy to remove With the added bonus of gorgeous rose gold packaging and a stunning shade range that would flatter everyone! @ofeliacosmetics Touch of Rose Liquid Lipstick Collection ticks all of the above. A BIG sparkling LOVE from me! What’s your favourite liquid lipstick formula? . Bạn nào đã dùng qua @ofeliacosmetics Touch of Rose Liquid Lipsticks?

4. Rotating makeup organisers

A rotating makeup organiser provides 360 degree access to all your beauty products! With at least 3 tiers of shelves that can be customised according to your preference, rotating makeup organisers have more than enough space to contain all essential makeup items of a beauty junkie! This functional product also allows you to adjust the shelves to different heights to accommodate beauty products of various shapes and sizes.

5. Pegboards

Running out of space on your vanity table? Expand your makeup storage space with pegboards! Simply attach them to the walls above your vanity table for additional storage. Add hooks, shelves, and even containers for all your makeup! This makeup organiser is absolutely customisable so you can switch things up whenever your collection grows bigger!

6. Grid wall rack 

Similar to pegboards, grid wall racks create more space for your makeup! Secure a grid wall rack to the wall above your vanity table and add grid baskets or hooks to hold your beauty items!

Pro tip: Too many eyeshadow singles to organise? Simply stick an adhesive hook tag on the back of each eyeshadow and hang them on your grid wall rack! Not only are you able to free up space on your vanity table but this makeup organiser hack will also allow you to get a better view of all the shades you own!

7. Empty candle jar

If you’re a fan of scented candles, here’s an easy way to transform your leftover candle jars into makeup organisers! After you’re done with your large jars of Yankee candles or Bath & Body Works candles, don’t toss them away! Simply pour boiling water into the jar to clean out the leftover wax and wipe the entire jar down with rubbing alcohol. Thereafter, fill half the jar with glass beads and you’ve got yourself a stylish new makeup organiser for your makeup brushes!

8. Mirror storage

You can benefit from multi-purpose storage solutions if your vanity table is tight on space. Instead of equipping your vanity table with a boring ol’ mirror, why not get one that boasts a built-in storage! Mirror storage mirrors can hold some of your daily essentials, helping to reduce your morning prep time!

9. Vases

Vases or planters are other great storage alternatives for your makeup brushes! They keep your fluffy brushes upright, minimising damage to their bristles. Aside from makeup brushes, vases make spacious makeup organisers that can be used to store your eyeliner, eyebrow pencil and mascaras. These small tubes can be hard to find when left in a pile of clutter on your vanity table so organise them in a vase for easier access!

10. Magnetic palettes

If you have an overwhelming collection of individual pressed shadows, you should consider depotting them to save space. Depotting involves removing the eyeshadow pan from the external packaging.

Depending on the brand of eyeshadow you’re depotting, you can remove the eyeshadow pan either by pushing a needle through a small hole below the packaging (usually concealed underneath the label) or heating up the packaging over a flame and wedging the eyeshadow pan out of its container.

Thereafter, store your individual eyeshadow pans in a magnetic palette, which comes in many designs and sizes to suit your taste. If your eyeshadow pans are not magnetic, it’s best to attach magnet sheets behind each pan.

Pro tip: Remember to attach eyeshadow labels on the back of the pan so you don’t have to worry about forgetting their names!

11. Magnetic makeup board

Find yourself tearing your hair out every time you look for a product on your messy vanity table? Spare yourself the trouble with a magnetic makeup board! Similar to the pegboard and grid wall rack, a magnetic makeup board displays your products neatly, promising to reduce your prep time by half! 

Attach a strong magnetic memo board to the wall, and stick magnet sheets behind the products you want to display on the board. This works for all makeup products such as brushes, eyeshadows and compact powders.

Pro tip: Personalize this makeup organiser by wrapping it in colourful fabric or wrapping paper! You can also add embellishments to the board to match your vanity table!

Pick the storage ideas that match your needs best and start expanding the space on your vanity table! If these storage solutions do not work for you then it’s probably time for you to declutter and clear out old and expired makeup products!

For those who have successfully organised their vanity table, it’s time to fill up the excess space with new makeup goodies!
