Show us your vanity/make up set up!

I searched around and saw storage but not many vanities.

I just got my vanity in today, I'm probably going to get a chest to store everything else, because these drawers are small! They also don't open all the way.  This is my set up for now.

 

Whats your set up like?

Lol, I have that one! It looks a different colour there. Thought I might like it and I guess I already do!

This is what I use everyday. I have my makeup in a bag I bought at bed bath and beyond and my brushes in a empty bath and body works candle jar inside a divider from ikea. I keep powders and primers in the divider too because there's no room in my bag.

For all my other that I use on other people, I keep at the bottom drawer. It's in the same divider, just a bigger size. The left one has my palettes, brushes, loose powder, and eye lashes. The right one has all my single eye shadows, blushes, eye liners, cream eye shadows, and small palettes. This last draw is so heavy that the bottom of the drawer is literally sagging.......oops.

Is that the RealTechniques blending sponge?

OOOO How is it? How does it compare to the real beautyblender? I've been dying to get my hands on one!

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

I haven't tried the original beauty blender, so i can't compare the two. It definitely feels softer than the beauty blender dupes you see at Marshall's and stuff. It feels sooooo soft and squishy on the skin. I love the flat side that it has because it really does fit underneath the eyes perfectly. I only use the flat side for foundation and concealer. I never use the pointy side.

How durable is it? I have two BB dupes and they started tearing after a couple of washes.

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

I've only had mine for a few days. It's pretty durable because I washed it a few times and it hasn't ripped or anything. Also, it's literally so soft and squishy that I just squeeze it for fun. I just love the feeling of it!

Omg, thanks for making me not feel like an idiot. I love squishing my beauty blender dupes and the legit beauty blender, but I have a fear of tearing the real thing up. The dupe I have is kinda squishy, but it is harder than the real thing. I once wanted to give the dupe to my cousin's dog as a chew toy because it is really hard when dry.

I have been using that Real Techniques sponge for 2+ months and I wash it every 2 applications and it's doing fine - the only tiny tear in it is my fault because I had a long, broken nail that snagged it, lol. I love the BB, but $20 for that bad boy.... I just CAN NOT. This works just as well for me, AND you can get it on sale! Double win! :smileywink:

I haven't seen Airspun powder in a while!  Do they still carry it in CVS/Rite Aid/Walgreens?

CVS stopped carrying them, so I got them for 75% off before they sold out hehe. It came out to be around $2 each, which was a total deal! But I'm seeing these at Walmart now.

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

That's an awesome snag!!!!

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

Is it funny I just stared at this trying to identify everything? And where do you get lashes in bulk like that????

andyhtrieu

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

I get them at my local Asian beauty supply store. They're $5 each and it's always buy 5 get one free. If you don't have one near you, you can try going to Asian nail salons. It's honestly hard to find if you're not in SoCal. You can also find these types of eyelashes on amazon or ebay. They're under "model 21 lashes"

I try to stock up in japan every year but forgot to this time round. Running out  of them. image.jpg I got these for ¥600

*-* SO pretty! I love it!

I feel so bad when I look at all of you girls collection because your are so organized! I don't plan on having a huge makeup collection, because I can't barely organize my little one. I wish I had a pretty organized appartment, but my boyfriend and I are more of  "man cave" kind of people! Like instead of a prety living room set up for guests we have a big leather reclinable couch with a projector instead of a TV! LOL

But wow, If I ever live in a house I will want one of those!

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

Maybe find a small bed side table sized thing? I don't think I'd be able to be organized if I didn't have drawers.  I was using a bedside table from Ikea, but it killed my back to be hunched like that while applying.

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

sounds comfy!  I never even thought I'd be one of those people with a vanity.  It's really nice having a pampering area, but yeah, not everyone needs one. I used to be happy doing makeup on the floor in front of a mirror.  I've become more in touch with my girlie side in the last couple years I guess, and needed my own space.

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

Oh you got it!!!! you must be so happy!!!! woooooo hooooo! I didn't even FIND a vanity when we looked and instead put some pieces together to make one! Once it was set up it was first set up I didn't wanna leave it! Come to think of it, that's most likely when my collection took off...image.jpg

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

Yes, I was so excited when UPS came! The dogs were less impressed.

 

I love your set up! That vanity totally looks like it came together like that.  Are those my little ponies and perfumes on top?
