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 u know i set it up that way because I wanted to be able to see everything and the first thing that came to mind   was to set it up as if I were in a store shopping And browsing..

There are so many unbelievably beautiful and meticulously organized vanities in this thread.

 

But I'm not going to lie, it has made me feel better about spending what I spend on makeup. Whenever I feel guilty for dropping $150-$200 in a day and feel super guilty about it, and secretly wondering if my boyfriend harbors any resentment about it (he always says it's all good and never shows any, so I'm sure it's just my own paranoia!). 

 

He was also in awe of the pictures in this thread, but I'm hoping it helped put my makeup collection/setup into some perspective as well. I basically have 2 little 18"x18" shelves on an IKEA tower in our bathroom that hold all my face and hair products. I just get super paranoid about taking up too much space and making sure he has enough room for his stuff as well. Oh the joys of living in a 500sqft apartment!

 

That said, I'd totally jump at the chance to play in @alltheshiny's room, it's so amazing and beautiful! I love the ice cube trays and unbelievable organization! :smileyvery-happy:

OMG these are amazing!!

 

Question: Is it difficult doing your makeup when you're not by a sink? I always do it in the bathroom because I need access to the sink to dampen my sponge, wash off my fingers, etc.

 

How do you handle those things?

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

I keep some makeup remover and cotton pads/tissues on my vanity, so when I have makeup mishaps I can just take it off that way without having to go to the bathroom. You might want to get a shallow dish that you can put some clean water in it before you get started.

Lots of running back and forth between my room and the bathroom, and jumping over piles of clothes on the floor. :smileytongue:

I pieced my vanity together from separate Ikea units, and tried to keep the overall look feminine and clean, as well as functional. (Used the Alex units and Limnon desktop.)

My hubby also made a couple of these nail polish displays attached to either side of an Ikea bookcase. (Besta.)

I used a variety of storage for the table top, including letter sorters, CD holders, a cake stand, flower pots and such. Most of it from Chapters/Indigo and Homesense.

And then a variety of trays from the dollar store and Maxi (Supercenter in the rest of Canada, I think) to organize inside the drawers. I also used candle boxes with the cut-down boxes from lipsticks to organize lippies, and ice cube trays for individual eyeshadows.
