You might find a chest of small translucent drawers like this one next to the nuts and bolts at the hardware store, but it's a convenient way to store more glamorous things like lipstick and single eyeshadows, says makeup artist Mathew Nigara. Label each drawer with a stick-on tab to make finding (and putting away) your daily essentials even easier.
For a more feminine organizer, opt for a Lucite jewelry box (like this one from Organize.com, $89
) with felt-lined drawers that prevent fragile palettes from sliding.
