The bathroom counter. The bottom of your purse. The car. The pocket of your jeans. That clutch you used once. What do all of these things have in common? They're all accidental graveyards for beauty products.
Wouldn't it be nice to have one place to home all of your products, so you can organise your makeup and actually see everything!
Enter: The Vanity, the ultimate girly indulgence. A vanity may seem excessive, but with all the beauty products we have brought - they deserve a proper home.
See below the most important tips when creating your own makeup station -
// The Foundation.
As every makeup maven knows, the key to a good face is a quality base. The same applies to your vanity. When looking for a foundation for your vanity, remember: Storage is vital. Look for a desk with space to store those practical products you want to keep out of sight and out of the light, like creams with anti-aging properties that break down in sunlight.
Ikea has some great styles!
// Makeup Gets Messy.
Invest in a glass top to make cleaning up counter spills a breeze.
// Keep It Organised.
Your surroundings should inspire you. For a vanity, that means keeping things organised, not shoving everything in your vanity. If your makeup isn't organised, chances are you'll totally forget you have something, and it will go unused. Desktop or drawer organisers are easy to find and cheap, and will make your life much easier.
Acrylic storage containers keep things neat, but allow you to see all of your beauty products. (All 8,764,546 of them.)
Perspex drawer inserts are perfect for this!
// Vanishing Act.
Utilise drawer space with container inserts. Now you see 'em, now you don't!
