Liven Up Your Makeup Area! Simple Ways To Beautify Your Space!

I really do like a simplistic/modern when it comes to house decor, but i feel like i can’t help but want to personalize my vanity/makeup area when i see all of these other gorgeous spaces online posted by girls everywhere. I’ll be talking about a few simple ways breathe air into your space if you feel it’s lacking personality.

  • First and foremost, if you have TONS of makeup like myself, you are going to need a place for storing it all. Luckily i have many drawers and cupboards that are barely enough space for all my makeup. Those cupboards are full of organizational baskets and plastic organizers that you can buy online or from places like target or Walmart. They also have plastic stacked bins that slide in & out that will serve as maximum makeup storage & organization if you do not have drawers and cupboards vacant.
  • Now the seat, get yourself a nice comfy chair that you love. I love the look of these weaved grass type chairs and i love the height of this ones back piece! It’s like a throne. I keep a little matching pillow on it for back support/comfort. πŸ™‚
  • Match your accessories; whether it be color, pattern or both! It’s just a fact of life that a space pulled together with matching beautiful towels, rugs and candles etc, makes us humans happy and it’s obv. more appealing to the eye. ❀ Go to Walmart or target or even the dollar store sometimes, they have tons of bathroom sets for great prices!

  • Lighting is SO important guys! If you are doing your makeup in a dark area you are not going to achieve the results you want. Natural lighting is clearly the best option but if you have a designated makeup spot with no windows, you should probably invest in some nice vanity lights! Talk about brightening up your space. πŸ˜‰ I took a picture of two bulbs but there’s at least 10 of these guys running across the top of my mirror. These are big bulbs that produce lots of light and makes it super easy to do my makeup with better detail.

  • Get yourself a nice sleek mirror for close up occasions, those moments where you’re gonna need a closer look at what you are doing. Keep it clean and on your vanity table for a nice touch. ❀
  • Put out your favorite perfumes, not just because you’ll be using them often, but they always look very elegant & classy sitting on a vanity table.
  • Clear a spot to keep some commonly used items, whether it’s nail polish, lipsticks, or foundation. Just keep it neatly placed in an acrylic organizer for easy access! πŸ™‚

  • Add some plant life; get a bundle of flowers and put them in a nice vase or get a bamboo plant like me! πŸ™‚ This really adds a nice lively touch to the space.
  • Get a few accessories/nik-nacs that you love and if you have room, place them somewhere on your vanity table/area! I have a few small things shown above.
  • If you have any wall space incorporated into your makeup area, USE IT! Nothing personalizes a space better than your most favorite works of art, paintings, drawings, posters etc. Or in my case, i painted something personally for it. Since i barely had any wall space for this, i wanted to paint something special for the area that had to do with cosmetics & beauty and what i love. ❀

It’s important to surround yourself with beauty in more ways than just physical. This is a pretty space, and i love doing my makeup here but more importantly it the fact that wanting to keep this area so beautiful and nice, keeps me organized and very clean with it. That helps me mentally more than anything, because i really can’t tolerate clutter at this point in my life. So, not only does brightening up/organizing your makeup area right now make you happy, but it will help you strive to keep it that way and keep you happy. ❀

Thanks for reading! Leave comments & thoughts for me, hope you all had a great weekend! Ready for work? πŸ™‚ I’m adding lot’s of goodies into my Halloween Giveaway keep checking for it! ❀

  2. I am so jealous on how organize your stuff are. Everytime I do some clean up on my beauty stuff make up and skin care products it only lasts for a day. The next day everything will be messy again. 😦

    • I know why ya mean Herl:/ I would drive my boyfrien and myself CRAZY when it came to what the bathroom always looked like. I would just have everything scattered across the counter top powders, mascaras, eyeshadows, brushes and i just would NOT clean it up because of how often i use this stuff. But one weekend i realized it’d be worth giving it a shot and i did the WHOLE bathroom. Got myself some organizational plastic containers, shallow baskets, anything that would work. Then i began sectioning everything off into their own groups, eye pencils, lip pencils, lip gloss, blushes and gave them all their own special areas to stay. Now if i’m needing to post a makeup look and i have an idea of the look i want to achieve in my head, i take a big tuppawear container, go through the files and select which lip pencil ill be using, what mascara and foundation & so on and so forth. When i’m done i’ll take my container back an replace the items where they belong, an it seems to really help! If you do decide to try it out and get everything ogranized, try my big tuppawear container tip and see if you can keep your makeup organized longer! :))

      • Omg! This is really a great idea. I will definitely try it. I’m always having trouble with messy lipsticks boxes. I often arranged them according to their shade. But then sometimes I can’t decide which color to use so I keep on grabbing corals, then return, get nudes, then return and the cycle continues until I ended up having most of them out from their usual spot. Lol! I keep my lippies on their boxes so it’s easy for me to see which color is which.

      • Yes! Definitely give it a shot! πŸ™‚ it may help it may not but you could try ❀ haha i do the same thing with my collection of MAC lippies, and i keep the "name" stickers on the bottom of the boxes pointed upwards so their easy to spot and read! πŸ˜€
