When you associate bloggers & beauty you automatically think of some massive makeup station with tons of makeup, that clearly isn’t the case over at LWSS HQ’s. In the past I hoarded all colors of the rainbow, makeup collections/releases and never used it. I’ve now realized it’s about what I use and making the most of it. I literally ask myself questions like “Will I really use this?” or “Do I really need this?”. It’s very hard because I’m a true beauty addict but I’ve learned less is more over the years.
I always share a peek on IG when my little corner is at its best (it can get very messy), but I thought I’d give you the deets in a proper post. My mother was kind enough to drive over 3 hrs to get this laptop table for me as my birthday gift this year. It’s from IKEA and it’s only $40. I’ve talked about it before, it’s nothing fancy like a Malm but I love it! Initially it was just my desk but I kept bringing makeup over to it and thought if all my everyday items are in one place it would be much easier in general. I keep most of my makeup here and the rest in a box in the bathroom. I always do something on my blog called the Muji Rotations which is a detailed look of what I keep in my acrylic drawers throughout the seasons. On top of the drawers is another acrylic storage compartment that I came across at a Marshall’s and my everyday brushes. I have a wired basket on the shelf that contains lipsticks, base products and some eyeshadow palettes I tend to reach for.
I currently have Diptyque’s Baies & Amber candles to burn while I’m applying makeup or working. I also have empty jars that house tools like eyelash curlers, lip primers, lash combs, cotton buds, lip brushes, tweezers, and a sharpener. My newest addition to the tablet top is my Simple Human Sensor mirror which really has improved my makeup application and I don’t think I could ever be without it! I keep bigger items like my Chanel loose powder on the side because its too large to fit in the drawers, plus it’s a really pretty tub of powder to stare at while working. I’m happy with my little set up because there is nothing that I don’t use so I’m not blogging for the sake of, I like what I use and I get to share real experiences with you all.
What do you guys like to keep on your tabletops?
