My Vanity Nook :)

Just thought of sharing how my vanity nook looks like, its nothing too special, but I love it since everything I need is accessible when I sit in front of that mirror. 

I wanted the working area to be a little narrow coz I have this habit of leaning towards the mirror so i can do my eye makeup (aka. mascara, falsies and liner) perfectly. I didnt want those ready-made dressers because i find them too bulky and wont even fit all my makeups in the built-in drawers. Wanting to have that continuity in design, i asked our finishing carpenter to build me this little vanity nook in one of the corners of this room. 

Wanted to have shelves beside it so I can store basically everything that I need there (im still waiting for them to build the "doors" for the shelves to keep dust off my beauty stuffies).

Here's what I have atop the vanity table, boxes that houses my makeups. 

Here's how it looks like when the lamp is turned on : 

as you can see, there are actually 3 mini-halogen bulbs in that lamp I got from Shopwise (Php 4500.00), 2 of the bulbs are busted as of this time though, I ran out of spare bulbs haha! That lighting fixture replaced my Ikea Musik Wall Lamp, I like this set better. 

I also numbered the boxes so I can list down what each of them have inside 

1 - falsies 
2 - more falsies 
3 - blushes 
4 - more blushes
5 - foundies 
6 - more foundies 
7 - brushes 
8 - guerlain backups 

here's what i have for my mascaras, a little basket thing that has 2 suction (glass stickers) at the back so it can be attached to mirrors. 
(mom got this at Muji, i dunno how much she paid for it though)

a portion of the vanity table contains a small shopping cart with all my glitter liners and some cosmetic items that come in small tubes. 

the small blue see-thru traincase houses my gel liner collection,
beside it is my Shu Uemura Cleansing Oils and Moisturizers.

the maroon case contains all my pencil liners, 
on top of that is Kryolan's Invisible Matt and Mandom Cleansing Water. 
Alcohol in Sprayer
Cinamoroll Cup with all my Brow Razors 
Lava Lamp (haha!)

And oh! before I forget, I lined my vanity table with placemats so if i accidentally spill something (im clumsy), it would be easier to clean it. 

Something that mom got for me  and decided to hang it in my mirror 

The yellow thing hanging on the wall is a gift from my friend, its an earring and accessory organizer, all the Harajuku Lovers and Tokidoki earrings in that frame are from my friends too! 

more makeups here.. 

topmost box : concealers 
middle : eyeshadows and loose powders 
bottom : sponges and more makeup backups 
at the back is my Kryolan Stippling Brush backup that I havent even washed yet eversince I got it about a year ago. haha!

That wraps up the little peek of my Vanity area. :) 

Will post a more detailed version after im done fixing everything already. Still too lazy to segregate stuff and put them in their respective shelves.. Heehee! 

Live, Love and Stay Fab!!
