The colder months are approaching—and so with it, a different approach to your makeup and skincare routine. Why not create a special space for your primping moments as a cozy, beauty treat for the season ahead? Whether it be a designated drawer, a corner nook, or a glammed-out vanity table—make even the five minutes you spend on your face a little bit more luxurious, time-saving, and relaxing by organizing your routine for stress-free beauty time.
Maximize Drawer Space
Drawer space is usually at a minimum—regardless of the size of your bathroom or vanity area. Try sourcing wooden or plastic drawer containers from Ikea, Home Goods, or The Container Store to maximize drawer space. Create mini-style groupings to house quick favorites for eyes, lips, and cheeks to keep hurried searches to a minimum.
Design A Custom Skin Care and Fragrance Tray
House everyday go-to’s on a stylish tray to show off pretty skincare packing and fancy fragrances. Gorgeous glass containers are works of art and deserve to be on display—why not keep your carefully curated cosmetics at your fingertips for admiration and resourcefulness? Beautiful resources for vintage tray sampling include Anthropologie and West Elm.
Clever, Custom Stashing
Use unexpected resources (like I did here with the “M” figurine and mini vintage glass cup) to hold daily go-to’s like favorite lipsticks, quick liners, spot concealers, or a favorite all-purpose makeup brush that’s designed to multi-task, just like you.
This may be obvious—but don’t stash your brushes in a drawer. They’ll keep better and serve a functional purpose if you can see your collection all in one place and be at the ready for quick applications.
If you have the counter space, try displaying your beauty goodies similar to product displays in a candy or department store. This lovely gold-rimmed glass container was a super affordable score from Anthropologie. Similar finds are available at Home Goods or TJ Maxx. Keep your favorite beauty tools and tricks in one quick and convenient beautiful display unit.
Moments and Details
Style your vanity with a beautiful, simple candle that reflects your current mood for quick lighting in the mornings or that special time of day. Think about selecting a candle for the season or getting the candle counterpart of your favorite fragrance. The Peony Candle by The Little Market is subtle and alluring for any time of year.
Also, consider setting the stage for your current mood, a lazy weekend, or housing meaningful and delicate finds with a daily tray for the day’s breakfast or jewelry for the week.
