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?

It's so spacious! I'm not sure why vanities are typically made with such small drawers.

I agree. I like the Alex stuff because you can get glass tops to pit over two of them to make a desk, so I could add on to by drawers and make a vanity in the future!

Okay, I have a couple questions about makeup organization in general. I hope they don't sound dumb and apologize in advance if they've already been asked on this lengthy post.

 

Does it hurt an eyeshadow palette to store it on its side? Will it make the shadows more likely to fall out?

 

What's the best way to store a lipstick? Does it hurt it to store it upside down so that the label can be read? Will storing it upside down compromise the integrity (holding together) of the lipstick?

It's a habit of mine to store everything in the "meaningful" position, even in my makeup box.

 

Eyeshadow palettes might have some loose leftover pigments that you just used, those little pigments might fall, but definitely not the whole thing... although in one of Wayne Goss'es videos one of his illusion d'ombres chanel presses TOTALLY FELL OUT OF IT'S CONTAINER in one single peice when he tried showing the camera the colour of it holding it sideways.

 

As for lipstick, I'm not sure... but if it's high end, I sure hope it's could with stand some gravity haha

Sonny, I guess you're right about the lipsticks and eye shadows. I'm not used to owning enough so that I have to think about how to store them. Then I get some stuff, and worry that I might damage it by how I store it. What can I say? :smileywink: Thanks for your input.

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.
