The Perfect Vanity

If you live in a small apartment (as most of us 20 somethings do) you likely don’t have a lot of space to call your own. It’s tough to share a bathroom – let’s be honest there’s barely enough space in there for your makeup and you’ve gotten in one too many fights with your roomie over the shower schedule. Turn getting ready into a luxurious and relaxing experience by creating your very own beauty corner of your room, equipped with the perfect vanity table.

Below you can sneak a peek into my beauty corner. I use the Ikea Brimnes Dressing Table because it’s the perfect size to store all my hair and makeup products – not too big and not too small! I paired my dressing table with a hidden storage seating option so that there’s no wasted space (shhh I keep all my pants and workout clothes in there). To the right you can also see my trusty mannequin that I inherited from my first ever job as a boutique assistant – I still try out my outfit ideas on her occasionally! To the left of my vanity is my little night stand where I store my lipsticks & Scentsy!


One of my coworkers gave me this gorgeous monogrammed mug from Anthropologie for Christmas. I enjoyed many lattes out of this beauty before deciding to use it to hold my makeup brushes – it was just too cute not to display 24/7.


My current makeup favorites are my NARS Super Orgasm, Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner, and my trusty Diorshow mascara.


I’ve organized the inside of my vanity into 3 specific compartments – the upper left corner is for nail products, the lower left corner is for skincare, and the right half is for my most used makeup products (I have a whole train case stashed under my bed too, but these are the products I reach for on the reg). I love that the vanity comes with these partitions as it really helps to keep everything organized!


Where do you get ready every morning?
