I use the three drawer plastic Rubbermaid containers that you can set on the counter. This is how I personally organize my drawers:
Drawer 1: foundation, concealer, primer, blush, bronzer, etc.
Drawer 2:eyeshadow, eye primer, mascara, liner, etc.
Drawer 3: lip gloss, lip stick, etc.
Then I just use a nice glass to put my makeup brushes next to it.
