What do you guys keep your makeup in and where did you get it? I am thinking about getting a tackle box for my stuff since my makeup bag is busting open...

I have a big box that I picked up from the art supply store. It is just like one of teh expensive train cases, but it was only like $20. Today I picked up a little box with sections from Ikea. I bought it for my art supplies, but i may end up putting makeup in it.

OOH! I hadn't thought of the Art Supply Store!! I can go there on Monday!! There is a BIG one right down the street from my apartment.

I had gone to WalMart earlier today, but they only had plastic tackle boxes, and I really wanted a simple metal one. I'd rather buy one in person rather than buy it online bc then I can really SEE it and be sure that it will work...

I just have a cheapo train case from Walgreens .... but at the rate I'm going, I might need to get some sort of tackle box or art supply box soon, I get annoyed at how I have to just stack everything up in the main compartment, I want to organize things more!


The lighting and flash were really bad when I took these pictures ... the traincase is actually a shiny silver/pewter pattern, and the inside is actually light gray felt! I keep my l/g and a few small misc items in the removable tray, brushes and e/l in the elastic pockets inside, and everything else in a big pile in the bottom!

i keep my makeup in a small makeup case that i bought at walmart some time ago. it is waaaaay too small now. my friend is going to buy me the mac cosmetics case as a late birthday gift, so i am holding on until then.

I just keep mine in a makeup bag from Estee Lauder but a lot of the time it ends up all spread out on my counter. I need a bigger case so i'll quit doing that. It's so messy.

I have a Caboodles case that I got from Target for about$30. It looks like the one in Kerri's post... the second case.

hmm i might have to go to target then... We have a SuperTarget kind of down the street, and if anyone has one, it HAS to be that one!

Marisol and Kerri did you get yours in the Makeup Section of Target?

The traincases that some of you have with the aluminum and the fold out levels is EXACTLY what I was looking for, but I would rather be able to see it and buy it in person if I can, Ebay is a last resort right now for me...

Erica, that container u got looks great. I might try to find that here.

I keep mine in a makeup case, a Sephora train case, and a black canvas bag for the MISC stuff (organized in Ziploc bags).

I use those small plastic drawers you can get from stationery places (mine are from Staples), plus a couple of plastic pen pots and small trays. I really need organising again.

Holy MAKEUP Trisha!! lol, I think you should be exempt from answering this question... You have so much makeup it is amazing!!

There isn't possibly ONE case to put all that in, unless it is a huge TRUNK!
