There is so much that you can use to store your makeup. I've seen people use ice cream buckets, bowls, CD holders and even iPhone boxes. Here's how I do it.
1) We had an old bread box that wasn't in use anymore. It's big enough to store my blushes and powders, so I tossed them into it and now I don't have to worry about them breaking or shuffling. If you something like this at home (which is of course idle), use it to store all your makeup or if you have a lot of it, then stack one kind of makeup item (for examples nail polishes or eye shadow quads/palettes) into it.
