Celebrity makeup artist Anthea Bueno is known for her soft, barely-there looks, as well as warm, summer-inspired tints highlighted by minimal but eye-catching accent. The same feeling flows into her home vanity as well, with its chic tropical aesthetic. She shared a full tour of the area on her YouTube channel.

Below, we highlight some of details from the walkthrough, with some exclusive photos and tips straight from the makeup artist herself!

1. The white and gold color palette

Anthea wanted to match the look of her vanity area to the rest of her home, so she opted for an elegant white color palette with pops of gold and beige. She was inspired by the "mid-century bohemian" aesthetic of lifestyle blogger Kate Spiers, and sought the help of interior designer Justine Arcega-Bumanlag to achieve the look.


If you look closer at her vanity table, you'll find her makeup brushes that are housed snugly in what appears to be brush holders, but they're actually repurposed plant pots! "Put in anything that you think can serve as a decorative piece but still be functional," she tells Preview.

2. Solihiya

To add to that chic tropical vibe, Anthea used solihiya pieces but with a modern twist. The makeup artist had her cabinets, shelves, and table custom made by JP Furniture and Construct to suit her needs, while swivel chair was sourced from West Elm.


3. The organization system

For someone like Anthea who owns a ton of beauty products, there obviously has to be a system in place to keep everything organized. What she did was she sorted them either according brand, purpose, or colors. "I organized my foundation in one drawer and concealers in another. It just looks neater and easier to find things this way," the makeup artist shares.

Another trick to her system are all the labeled acrylic cases, emphasizing that they should be clear so you can see the products right away. Lastly, she places the products and tools she uses the least at the very bottom.


For bulkier items like makeup palettes and blushes, she keeps them inside the built-in drawers on her vanity table. This way, she has more space to lay the products flat and make taking them out much quicker.

4. The pull out shelves

Another thing that makes Anthea's storage so efficient is the fact that the shelves can easily be pulled out. No need to strain her arms just to reach products at the back!


5. The round mirror

Instead of a traditional makeup mirror with built-in lights, the makeup artist went the minimal route. She opted for a simple round mirror with a brass rim, which matches the theme of the space perfectly. The angle also offers a great bounce of natural light!
