[a corner of my vanity. daily makeup staples, makeup brushes and body shop body butter in raspberry]
Earlier this year when I moved back into my newly renovated apartment, I made it a goal to transform my study desk into a vanity, considering I'm done with college (for 2 years soon!) and won't be needing a desk to study anymore. I wanted most things to be stowed away in drawers or boxes to avoid clutter, but also wanted frequently used makeup and accessories to be easily accessible and visible. More to come on my vanity, for this post I'll start with a little container I have been using to display my every day makeup.
I had been on the hunt for cute containers/drawers for organizing my stash, and came across this lovely mirror/glass mosaic cup at the Central Market in Kuala Lumpur back in April. I think it intentionally was marketed as a tea candle holder. Now it holds most of the makeup products I use on a daily basis (except face & cheek products, which I store in the plastic drawers photographed in the first picture).
In the past I had all these items stashed away with other random products in a plastic drawer set, in which I had to fish them out every morning as I was rushing to get out the door. Now that they are nicely fit into this container I find it much easier to grab everything quickly every day. On top of that, they look really cute sitting on my vanity and it makes me happy every time it catches my eye.
