Vanity of Vanities

I guess you could say this is where the magic happens :-P If you watch my YouTube videos, you might recognise the background, I just pull out the table so I can film against a blank wall. Once just your typical desk where I would innocently study for school exams, now has since been transformed to an place in my bedroom where I can sit down, apply my makeup, and then take it all off again at the end of the day..

The cream painted draws on the right (see first pic) came from Ikea, originally plain wood, but I transformed it to match my room, however, I'm pretty sure these have been discontinued. Once used to store my makeup but now holds stationary bits and bobs, as my makeup collection was overflowing and had to be transferred to a larger set of draws! The clear plastic cup, from TKMAxx holds my face makeup brushes and the glass tea light holder, bought as a gift, holds eye and lip makeup brushes. The large mirrored trinket holds 2 kabuki brushes, and the little one holds cotton pads, bought as a set from Laura Ashley. The light-up mirror is by Revlon, and also has a magnified face on the other side, which is just brilliant for makeup application! The cream painted wooden tray came as a Christmas gift containing bath goodies, but now holds my everyday skincare including muslin face cloths (Liz Earle & Origins), brush cleaner (MAC)and makeup setting spray (MAC Fix + & Evian Facial Spray). 

I might give you a sneak peek to my makeup storage/collection at a later date, it just needs a slight bit of TLC first!



  1. It looks great, I have the same Ikea chest of drawers, only mine are still their light wood color :)

  2. love your storage it looks great, cant wait to see the makeup collection :D
