My New Setup!

I posted earlier that I was in the process of changing rooms and reorganizing everything - and I wanted to share with you today my new vanity setup.

Looking back, nothing really has changed from my old setup - except for adding a few new elements - but I thought I'd share anyways.

On top of my vanity, I just have my palettes, brushes, NARS blushes, lipglosses, make-up wipes, MAC Charged Water, eye & lip pencils, alcohol (to sanitize), homemade brush cleanser, moisturizers and contact lens solution.

I repainted my vanity because it had gotten really dirty due to all the eyeshadow fall out and random make-up related stains. When I initially painted it the first time, I hadn't added a top coat/sealant to make it easier to clean. When I repainted it the second time, I had decided to go out and purchase a sealant to prevent it from grabbing on to stains as easily and to make it easy to just wipe down and clean.

My mom, on the other hand, had a different idea. She went out and bought a bit of clear plastic sheet (the kind you put on top of your table cloth on your dining table to make it easier to clean) and we glued that on the table top - you can see in some of the pictures the top is shiny.

I think that's a wayyyyyy better idea than my sealant topcoat, because it's an actual barrier. If that makes sense.

I had purchased these brackets and shelves from Ikea and my mom and I decided to put them up above my vanity for extra space. They don't hold anything make-up related, just random stuff.

And here's a look in the drawers:

Lipsticks and lipglosses, blushes and extra make-up wipes and eye make-up remover.

Mascaras, false eyelashes, lip balm, eyelash curlers, tweezers, brow trimmers, contact cases, eyebrow stuff, liquid and glitter liners, bobby pins & hair ties, and all my eyeshadows.

Primers and bases, face stuff, random eyeshadows, MAC pigments & samples, paintpots, fluidline, MSF & MSFN.

That's basically it! If you want a closer look at anything let me know.

I leave you with a picture featuring my sister that she wanted me to put up:

Till later!

Привет! Мне бы хотелось открыть салон парикмахерскую. У кого-то из читательниц есть опыт в этом? Очень большой выбор оборудования для салонов красоты. Кто может помочь советом? Какой магазин лучше выбрать для то чтобы купить Стайлер для волос и это Утюжок для волос. Я выбираю среди этих магазинов Spashop.com.ua, Venko.com.ua, Newfacebeauty.pl, Ukrmedgarant.com.ua.
