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!

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

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

One option is having the instant brush cleaners, makeup wipes, mac fix +, makeup remover like the koh gen do one etc at the vanity. 

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

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! Smiley Very Happy

My hubby got this for me! I'm so excited because it also has wheels! The light is the best part! so thankful!! i just started filling it so here is a small part of madness - my vanity has the rest.

Omg the Toolbox!! 

Thats an AMAZING Idea!!

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

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?

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

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

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

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? Smiley Wink Thanks for your input.

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.

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 Smiley Very 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.
