My vanity table is a mini representation of my personality-extremely organized and loves everything fabuluxe. I recently decided to only keep favorite products I use constantly out on my vanity table and then store everything else. Most of us tend to use the same things over and over anyway so this makes life easier.
First things first, I am in LOVE with my custom mirror my mom created. Above are the four corners of the mirror and I'm obsessed. Just look at it! I always loved the concept of the vanity mirrors many of the beauty gurus have, but everyone has the same exact one. I wanted something different, so instead I picked out a mirror and my mom customized and bedazzled it. Then I purchased Vanity LED lights and applied them right to my mirror. Super cute and inexpensive too!
My top brushes, blending sponge, and eyelash curler are stored in a tall fine crystal bowl for easy access. I try to clean my brushes at least once a week to eliminate bacteria and keep them in really good shape. Brushes are an investment, so treat them well so they can last a while.
I've always caught myself reaching for the same lip products over and over, so now I store them in an organizer with my favorite products for the season. I got this little organizing tray at the "Christmas Tree Shop" for only $10.
Now we are into the clear drawers. The first drawer has my Naked 2 palette which should technically be in drawer 2 with the other eye products, but I like how you can see it through the top of the case. In the back are my holy grail blushes and concealers.
Drawer 2 holds anything going onto or near the eye. So that includes shadows, liners, mascaras, and brow pencils. Since I don't wear false lashes often, I put those in my storage area. I have placed natural shade mini eye shadow palettes in this drawer, but I have other gigantic shadow palettes with every color under the sun stored away in my makeup storage for special looks.
Drawer three was actually a spare, so it is pretty basic. If I'm going to wear no makeup, this is probably the only drawer that I open. Just some hair ties in case I need to throw my hair up before a makeup application. Then tinted Vaseline, clear mascara, blotting sheets, on-the spot treatment, and eye drops for my allergies so I remember to use them in the morning.
The center is always switching up depending on what my current favorite face products are. I have my favorite pressed powders and sculpting palette for contour/highlighting in the front. The back row has other skin care products and I literally BELIEVE in all of these products. They are all phenomenal and worth every penny. I have sensitive skin, so everything I use needs to agree with my skin and still look flawless. Let me know if you would like me to go into further details on any of these products in a skin care post!
The final section to the left, to the left...that was a my inner Beyonce moment there. Anyway, all of these are hand lotions and perfumes/body sprays. I have many pairs of matching perfumes and lotions, so I like to set those near each other. My current favorite is Killer Queen by Katy Perry, so that one is front and center!
