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? 

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

My favorite part of the picture is finally seeing the infamous RobP (even more so since I now see you have at least 2 usernames dedicated to him).  Second favorite has to be the Mermaid.  I am assuming she's a perfume?

Looks like we have the same taste in perfume! I have a lot of the same ones you do! Btw I love my Alex drawers! They're perfect for makeup storage!

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

I really like the lighting!  

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

Had to make my own. I just bought a simple computer desk then added the lit mirror and lamp. On the wall, I bought cork squares so I can cut things out of magazines and pin them up. It's my inspiration wall so any clothes, shoes, or products I'm interested in I pin up. I love having my iPod dock there so I can listen to music while putting on make up. My lap top is stored in the drawer so I can work too.2014-07-02 11.54.00.jpg

Awwww, I used to have a cork board that was covered in hot men from magazines.... Sigh.  

What's that pink and purple tub?  

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

Yeah, I would put hot guys up too but I don't think "the man" would appreciate it like I do. The pink and purple tub is Viactiv Calcium chews. I don't drink a lot of milk or eat cheese so I have to add calcium. Just behind that is the Murad Clarifying Supplements too.

Hey.. Thanks so much!!!! I have alot more on my instagram.. Same user name.. I can't seem to help myself when it comes to beauty products lol😍

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

I just bought this desk at Restore ($15!!!!) and am looking forward to spiffing it up and making it my new make-up table. I'm torn between a mix of matte and mirror finish silvers and deep brown with two accent drawers in orange (the top 2). Regardless, the interiors of the drawers will be hot pink. Weather permitting, I'm going to do it next weekend. So excited!IMG_0318.jpg 

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

Woohoo! Finally finished. Along the way I picked up this stool…

And after some painting, stapling, and sewing...

Now I just need to cram everything in there. LOL.

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

What Jozkid said.  I love that you repurposed seemingly horrible furniture and made it stunning!

Thanks! It could have gone either way. I've had more than a few projects that didn't turn out matching the way they looked in my head when I started.

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

That is utterly fabulous! You are so handy. I have spent the past week of my precious vacation time stripping paint from the woodwork in my dining room. The results will not be nearly as awesome as yours!

You're too kind. How'd your project turn out? Woodwork is hard.

How much did you get that type writer?!

 

So vintage, LOVES 

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

I took that pic in the store. Stuff on top wasn't included in the low, low price. LOL. 

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

Post some pictures once you've painted it all up! I love customizing my stuff too!

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

I do too! I've painted almost every piece of furniture in our home. I love transforming something. My boyfriend jokes that I'll spray paint anything that will stand still! :smileywink:

I definitely will!

 

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

This is my Alex 5-drawer from Ikea that I just got a couple weeks ago! I love it so much, and it wasn't very expensive! On top I have candles, my iPod dock/alarm clock, makeup bags that I wanted to display, and a couple new products that I want to try before putting them away in the drawers.

In the first drawer I have eyeshadow palettes, quads, trios, duos, and singles.

image.jpg

In the second drawer I have eyeliners, minis (mascara, highlighters, Benetint, primers, setting spray, bronzer), blush, powder, skincare samples/masks.

image.jpg

In the third drawer I have lip gloss, lip balm, mini lip products (Lip Tar, lipstick).

image.jpg

In the fourth drawer I have brushes I don't use daily, eyelash curlers I'm not currently using, brush cleaner, a VIB Rouge compact that I've never used, blotting papers, and the clutch that the Summer Favourites set came in.

The fifth drawer has nothing in it (yet lol :smileyvery-happy:).

 

I also have this tray from Ikea that has all of the makeup I use on a daily basis in it. I do my makeup at the island in my kitchen, so it's much easier to carry a tray than a bunch of makeup products lol.
