3 Unique Ways To Upgrade Your Vanity Using Beauty Products

Build a space that caters to your every beauty whim


Our morning ritual is the most important part of the day—eating a hearty meal, taking a long shower, and of course, doing our makeup. 

Since we spend a good amount of time preparing for a long day, we're always trying to find ways to make the vanity table look good. However, finding practical ways to organize products that are strewn about and finding decor pieces to match can be difficult. 

Dont worry! With a little DIY, cute jars, and creativity, you can turn your makeup desk into the chic space you've always wanted.

Play around with the idea of framing spare falsies. There are a variety of fake eyelashes to choose from—pick out dainty pairs and a few daring lace ones, line them up and glue it down in a minimalist frame for instant wall decor.

Go through your collection and find lipsticks in pretty packaging; simply display them in a clear mason jar to add some character to your makeup corner. If you want an extra ornate touch, you can experiment by placing your favorite tubes in vintage lipstick holders instead.

Perfume bottles are already beautiful on their own. If you're able to find an efficient way to display them, it can serve as the focal decor piece in your vanity. Consider building individual shelves using recycled pallet wood (watch this tutorial for a step-by-step guide) and customize the size to fit your needs.  

RL Tip: If you're not a big fan of DIY, get your hands on clear acrylic cases instead.
