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?

Thats a lot of stuff!!! I would be proud to rock that collection :smileyhappy: nice set up.

Thank you! But it's mostly Ikea and Dollarama stuff! LOL Nothing that compares to your beautiful vanity! :smileyhappy: Although it's been working for now, so I just need to keep the collection small!

Honestly that vanity was cheaper than some ikea stuff! You'd be surprised, lol. Your set up works for you which is great. Our apartment had a full bath but it was the size of a closet so I had one teeny bag of beauty stuff and that's it! 

 

How do you lile the Too Faced Natural Face palette? And what kind of brushes are those?

Those brushes are just the famous dupes for Sigma and Real Techniques, but for my level of expertise they are perfect and I love them. However they are mostly face ones, so I just placed a Sigma order for two sets of eye brushes this week, since I don't have many good ones. Once I start getting better I can start buying  professional ones. 

 

As for the Natural face palette, I love mostly the cream and powder blushes and the bronzer. I put them on very often and like how they are buildable on me.  The brightener and hightliter I put on every now and then. They are not bad, but personally I prefer liquid or powder. The concealer is not the right shade for me and I don't like the consistency. But overall I don't regret buying and use the palette frequently. :smileyhappy:

I also have a Vanity Girl mirror. They're a really wonderful splurge. They do 20% off sales throughout the year. Follow them on IG or FB for updates. I bought mine during the Black Friday sale and it really changed the way I do my makeup. 

 

Anyway, my vanity will look soooo much nicer when I get some real storage and either paint my desk or put down some vintage wallpaper or glitter paper and then top that with a nicer glass cover. I also want to make a skirt to cover the perimeter of the desk. Then I'll have a nice glamorous little vanity going on. Right now it's just very functional but doesn't look very great...At all. Maybe I can tackle it over Memorial Day weekend!

And then to the right I keep all the makeup I most commonly use, except for lipsticks, which are already on the vanity. I need some Muji in my life.

Very nice! Does your mirror have protruding bulbs and the flash making them look flattened?

Yes they're protruding. It's the same model AtlantlaLady38's in fact, just in white. But she's a much better photographer than I am! :smileyhappy:

I thought they were the same style but wasn't sure! Probably just the flash :smileyhappy:

I store my makeup in the Ikea Micke desk and the Ikea Alex 9 drawer.

Your vanity set looks awesome! I've always wanted something like this - it's very old-style glamour, no? Sitting at a vanity getting ready in the morning or evening. :smileyhappy: I adore the little row of mini perfumes!

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

We're finally moving into a bigger place where I have room for a vanity!! I'm very excited. I ended up going with the popular Malm from Ikea so now I'm on the hunt for a chair. Any suggestions?

 

I'll post pictures once I have all of my stuff moved in :smileyhappy:

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

The chair I got was $99 and I got it from TJ Maxx from Cynthia Rowlley and I couldn't be happier. Targets were okay just not as  "fancy" lol

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

I'd get a plush tufted chair! Exciting that you will be getting it soon.

I was actually envisioning Target when I said this! Also check out tj maxx/homegoods, you may find something awesome there :smileyhappy:

I saw a great chair at TJ Maxx and it's $130 :-/ If I don't fall in love with anything else, I'll probably cave and get it
