Makeup is one of my passions besides fashion and lifestyle, and so I’ve purchased a lot of makeup and beauty products over the years. To store all of these products I’ve decided to get a dresser from Ikea, one that’s similar to the famous Ikea Alex dresser. I use this dresser as my makeup vanity where I put on my makeup every single morning, as it makes it easy to reach all my favorite products that I want to use. I also have some products on top of this dresser, and I think it will be interesting to share them with you.

First of all, I’ve put a little mirror on my makeup vanity and behind it I have my collection of MAC lipsticks stored in this acrylic lipstick holder. I love the look of MAC lipsticks and I have quite a lot of them which is why I like to display them here. MAC lipsticks are one of my favorite lipsticks out there and I use them almost every single day, so having them organized in this way it makes it very easy to pick which one I want to wear on a particular day.

Next to my collection of MAC lipsticks I’ve placed this little candle from dyptique in the scent ‘noisetier’. This candle smells so amazing, and I love the way it looks together with all the other products on my makeup vanity. It gives a very luxurious look and adds just a bit extra.

Behind my dyptique candle I’ve displayed all my favorite perfumes. I’m a huge perfume lover, and I never leave the house without having a scent on. So again, having my favorites on top of my vanity makes it easy for me to pick one for the day and spray it on in the morning. I also love the way these perfume bottles look together!

And lastly I have another acrylic makeup organizer where I store all my makeup brushes. This makes them easily reachable when I’m doing my makeup and this way I have them all in one place. I also store some of my eyeliners and eyebrow pencils in this organizer as these are also products I tend to use every single day, and they fit very nicely in this organizer.

So that’s all I have sitting on my makeup vanity at the moment. I personally love the way it looks in my room as it represents me and the things I like. Every once in a while I change up things slightly, and add some new products on there that I’m loving at the moment.

I hope you enjoyed seeing what’s on my makeup vanity and it maybe gave you some inspiration for your own vanity if you have one!

        I personally like Doe from the liptensity range mainly for the texture and how durable it is.
