Any of you that follow The Beautiful Truth on Facebook will know that for the past few weeks I have been obsessing about getting new storage for my makeup. I had rapidly run out of space for storing my makeup and hairdryers etc and I need a new solution. It was my boyfriend that suggested I think about a vanity unit. I latched onto the idea and took to Pinterest to get some inspiration. I am so excited to have this space. I absolutely love it. Not only is it great for putting on my makeup but also for taking blogging pictures. Instead of me rambling on I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
I wanted to keep the items that are on the desk to a minimum. Most bits I had already but when in Ikea I picked up a few more.
The lipstick holder I purchased on ebay. It cost about €3 and was free delivery. There are so many to choose from on ebay but make sure you buy from a top rated seller. The white holder is actually an Ikea plant pot. It’s called the skurar and cost €2. I bought a few of these as they are really handy. This one is just for the odd little bits I need to get my hands on quickly . While I have used the one below for storing my lip glosses.
The plant pots also come in a bigger size which I use to store my brushes. I have 2 pots, one for face brushes and one for eye brushes. The bigger pots cost €2.50
The drawer itself is pretty deep. Its 1.2m wide so it holds a lot. I bought the inserts in Ikea too. They are called the Antonius and they cost €2 each. The drawer holds 2 and a half inserts. I used 2 inserts buts I sawed the end off one of them so they could fit in neatly.
