Updated Desk/Makeup Area







 I had a little cleaning sesh to make room for new Spring items and picked up some tulips to freshen things up over here at LWSS HQ’s! My desk pretty much consists of my everyday makeup products or new products I’m testing out but every now and again I try to switch it up.

  • To the far left – I have a few empty Diptyque jars that hold my tools, some mini lip products, and small perfume samples. I also store my brushes in a Design Letters cup which sits on a ceramic tray. The try allows me to put things like jewelry or acts as a home for my beauty blender.
  • In the middle of the desk – I’m still a huge fan of the Simple Human sensor mirror which I’ve done an full review here if you’re interested in knowing more about it.
  • To the far right – still lives my good ole mooge, this is the 3 drawer acrylic stack. I’ve been going back and fourth about investing in a second drawer system, I’m still debating (it will just give me reason to buy more makeup). On the top of my mooge sits another acrylic container which I found at my local Marshall’s. In it I have foundations, primers, lip liners, eye liners and lipsticks. If you’ve read my Muji installments my drawers always start with base products such as powders, concealers, and primers first. The second drawer holds blushes, bronzers and other cheeks products. Lastly the third drawer contains a mix of lip and eye products.

The desk itself is from IKEA and well worth the $40 especially if you’re on a budget! It has a semi floating shelf which I store extra products and swap them out when I want to try out different makeup looks. As a blogger you would think I have more than this but I only use what I like and it works for me! I’m also huge on design and layouts so whatever makes sense in my crazy head is what I usually gravitate towards. The Spring Muji rotation will be up in a few weeks time so stay tuned for that!

    Your set up is gorgeous! I love how everything you need is just in arms reach, but it’s not too cluttered. x


  • rebecca (munchies&musings)

    I love your set up! I use empty Diptyque candles to hold stuff too, but I never thought of storing small perfume samples in them. Great idea! ❤

  • Blizzard Girl

    Oh man, this is so absolutely perfect. I may just have to invest in the Muji Drawers, how simple and clean!

  • Rachel

    Wow, I love how simplistic and moody (no offence 😉 ) this space is! Gorgeous! x


  • nueyork

    I love the setup here! I’m definitely anti-clutter, and your layout is the perfect balance.


  • Sofia Chang

    I love how everything has not only some sort of colour-coordination, but it’s minimalistic! I feel like I need to do something like this soon, as my makeup area part is getting crazier w/ all the stuff people give me & I feel bad if I give/toss them away…

    Loved your blog!! 🙂

  • Iryna Fernandes

    amazing! I can’t wait to have my own place so I can get inspired and decorate my makeup area like that!


  • Mary

    This is gorgeous! Although I think my favourite part is the fresh tulips – you can’t go past fresh flowers. Sigh, I wish I had my own place. x

    I I’m actually looking for ideas on how to organize my makeup on my desk and really like the way you do it and I really like the color of the wall.

  • Sunnykm

    Love the muji drawers! I see you have three drawers–are they one inch high or 1.5 inches high?

  • Sasha

    Love your set up, especially the vase. Very chic and lux.

  • ahhhsoneo

    what a great set up. very clean!

  • Joyce (bronzer bunny)

    lovely! I’ve been thinking about getting this as a work desk… my malm dressing table is too crowded with makeup! 🙁 I think you’ve done well keeping your stash a manageable size! 🙂

    P.S. I love the new layout and look!
