Hello there, lovelies!
I haven’t really been doing a lot of beauty posts lately, so I just thought to begin a series of it this week. I kinda miss talking about makeup and all that glam. In fact, I actually miss doing a full-on makeup look!
Maybe one of these days…
Anyway for today, just wanted to let you in on how my vanity station at home looks like. I don’t have your usual dresser, with a pretty mirror and a chair. What I have is a makeshift vanity dresser. Also, since I like moving around a lot while doing my makeup in the morning, I don’t really need a chair!
As you can see, I have two mirrors – a big one and a small one. I use the small one when doing my eyebrows, eyeshadows, and eyeliners. I can also move around with it to check my face in different lights – daylight, sunlight, indoor lighting, etc.
On top of my vanity dresser are mostly my skin care products, comb and brushes, body lotions, and my collection of perfumes and colognes. I usually wear a different scent every week, depending on my mood, so I kinda have a lot of variety. Oh, and I also have my makeup brushes in the corner, all housed in an old plastic water bottle with a cover ( I’m a fan of recycling old stuff). This is also where I place my watch and other jewelry before going to the shower at night.
Underneath or on the topmost shelf is where I store all my beloved makeup. I got this huge plastic two-layer drawer from Muji- which was originally intended to store bond papers- as my main makeup storage. On top of it are where I store my new and still unopened makeup products. As you can also see, on the left side is a red container. It’s actually a brush case from MAC and where I store all my pencil liners, be it an eyeliner or a lip liner.
On the top drawer of my Muji case are my face and eyebrow products. This is what I usually open first thing in the morning when I’m about to do my makeup. Also, when I’m in a rush, all the essentials to make a decent face in the morning are in this drawer, so it’s all convenient. Meanwhile, the second drawer houses all my blush and eyeshadows. This what I open when I’ve got enough time to do my eyes. Otherwise, I’ll just do my blush and lipstick in the car.
