If your bathroom counter looks like a disaster in the mornings, it might be time to get serious about organization, and a great place to start is with your makeup collection. Makeup is a challenge when it comes to organizing, as you're dealing with so many objects of different shapes and sizes that all need to be contained. And depending on the size of your makeup collection as well as the size of your space, you’ll have a variety of different options for storage. We want to help you wrangle the clutter, so we’ve rounded up some of our favorite makeup organizers to use in your bathroom, on your dresser or on top of your vanity.
