I should probably wait until my order from Notoriously Morbid arrives before doing this, but it will take a few weeks (indie company, international shipping, Christmas commerce hangover) and I really wanted to get this up! This is my dressing table, where I store all of my makeup. It is an antique reproduction which is about 23 years old, but you can still purchase it here! No Ikea 'Alex' drawers for me, thanks. This post is long and image-heavy, so be warned.
|This vanity mirror is from Casa Couture at House of Fraser. It is very sturdy and kind of perfectly huge. I love it! The dark grey mat is just a floor mat that I use to catch any makeup spills, as I had a lot of stains on my carpet from black eyeliner and shadow.|
The dressing table has two larger drawers at the front. They are very shallow, which I personally like as it means they can't be overfilled. The right drawer holds hair products and a couple of combs. The left holds face products, lashes, lenses, and some tools.
|The super cute Hello Kitty rectangular Gothic boxes hold the lashes I've been wearing recently. The rounder Gothic box is a travel contact lens kit. All are from Ali Express!|
|The white cup holds 'everyday' lip colours (for me, these are dead girl nudes in grey and taupe tones) and the black cup holds more unusual and fun shades.|
I keep my brushes on the table surface. Face brushes go in another Ikea container, and eye brushes are in a smaller resin jar from Debenhams. I also keep my makeup sponges and cotton buds out as I reach for these often.
This huge Biba makeup bag holds my everyday, staple makeup items: the things I use daily that I need to have on hand easily. I've had this bag for about five years and it has lasted incredibly well.
For the sake of being thorough, this is my handbag makeup bag. I use these products for touch-ups, and I have a few lip products too.
|I am trying to use up the Colourpop and Maybelline lipsticks. The Nyx Lip Lingerie is in the shade 'Embellishment', and is my absolute favourite thing to wear on my lips.|
Finally, my backups! There is a lot of black pencil liner in here as I was able to get a load of brand new Urban Decay liners on Reddit. I also have a backup of Lime Crime 'Cashmere' as it was my previous favourite daily lip product (it's still up there) and it can be hard to get. I also have two discontinued shades of the Glam Crystals liner.
