I started this new routine where I head up to my office in the morning to do my makeup. I found that my previous system of makeup storage was terrible because the products I wasn’t using on a regular basis were stashed out of sight in my linen closet.
And if it’s out of sight, it’s out of my over-capacity mind.
So, I did a big makeup purge one evening, whilst listening to Christmas music, and organized everything into my little makeshift vanity table. This is technically a console table and it’s a bit to short to sit at comfortably, but it works for the time being. This is what vanity dreams are made of though, in case you wondered.
It felt so good to go through and toss old old OLD makeup, and organize what I do have!
I love working through eyeshadow palettes, so I gathered a few of my favorites and placed them in this decorative box. I could close it if I wanted to, but I like being able to see the options.
Below is the most chaotic area of the table, but everything is really easy to grab so it works super effectively.
The drawers contain the rest of the makeup, perhaps some things that I don’t use very regularly but I may grab on a day I’m filming something!
I have really loved this option for doing my makeup. Since I’m up before the sun, the lighting isn’t ideal, but that isn’t a deal breaker for me. I use the smaller tabletop mirror the most, but the standing mirror is nice for a farther away look as well.
None of my lipsticks are pictured because that needs to be tackled on it’s own.
table (from Home Goods, similar option)
chair (from Furniture Land South, did you ever see this?)
standing mirror (from Home Goods)
tabletop mirror (from Target, but also love this one from ikea!)
decorative box (mine is from Home Goods, but this is a similar option!)
pencil holder holding the makeup brushes (from Target, another cute option)
Do you keep your makeup in a bag, or containers like I have?
