How I Organize My Makeup-Dorm Room Edition!

Hey everyone!

I hope ya'll are all having an amazing day today! :) I've been getting SO many requests lately for more organization posts, especially how I organize my makeup.  I've been wanting to do this post--but the only problem is that I'm in a dorm at college right now, so I don't have my whole collection here with me, because it would take up too much room in my dorm!  So, until I get home (which is in less than two weeks..EEK!), I thought I would do a "how I organize my makeup" dorm room style.  This is not me bragging about anything!!! This is good for anyone who is in a college dorm room or anywhere with a small space.  It's extremely inexpensive, nothing fancy.  I just brought the necessities with me to school.  So, here it is!

I just have a small black side table, which was $10 from Target when "back-to-school" time starts.  My Conair mirror, which one of the mirror sides has broken off, was from ULTA a while ago (I'm pretty sure they still have them).  Then, I just have a plastic set of 3 drawers, which you can get at Target or Wal-Mart.  I just put a bandana or a towel down under my mirror so the table doesn't get dirty, then throw it in the washing machine when I do laundry.  I keep my brushes in the pink basket you see peaking out on the left.

Here's what's in the drawers:

The white basket organizers can be purchased at WalMart, Target or Walgreens, and they come in packs of 3 for $1.  They organizers in my eyeshadow drawer are really old, and I have no idea where I purchased them, but they compartmentalize everything so well!  

On the top, I store some nail clippers, tweezers, hair clips and nail polish remover.  I also keep my favorite nail polishes on the top of this, so they are easily accessible for me.  Behind my nail polishes I keep my cotton swabs and cotton balls.

Like I said, it's a super easy, super inexpensive set-up--which is perfect for college kids!  The table is low enough that I can sit in the floor and do my makeup in the mirror without a problem.  
When I get home for the summer I'll do an overview of everything and how I store it all when I'm there, but for now this is what I'm using!  I LOVE doing organization inspired posts--I'm kind of OCD, so let me know if you want to see more! 

How do you store your makeup?
Comment and let me know!
