Hang Your Makeup

For bathrooms short on storage space, consider putting makeup in a hanging shoe organizer. Danielle Della Pella, owner of Home Story, categorizes makeup and stows it into labeled shoe pockets. A shoe organizer with see-through pockets allows you to find items quickly while taking up zero counter and cabinet space.

Put Makeup on Display

If you have beauty products worthy of display, place them on a pretty cake stand. Karen Monterichard, owner of Makeup & Beauty Blog, arranges perfume bottles on a two-tier cake stand, placing shorter bottles on the bottom and taller bottles on top. Cake stands are also convenient for displaying nail polish, lotions or any products with attractive packaging.
