Here it is-where all the magic happens! For two gals running a beauty and lifestyle site, we spend a lot of time in front of our vanities and thought it only right to share them with you. They’re the starting point for any review. But also, a place where we know for at least 15 minutes a day, we’ll have some time to ourselves.
I’d have to say, my vanity is my favorite piece of furniture that I own (that’s mine above left). handed down to me by my Grandparents; it was part of their bedroom set, the first pieces of furniture that they bought when they were newly married. I can’t help but be flooded with memories and love every time I sit in front of it. Even if it’s just to apply pimple cream!
I’d like to think that my beautiful vanity, and my utter love for it, influenced Tyna’s choice. She searched for five years for the perfect vanity, and found a zillion contenders in prices ranging from practically free to a month’s rent. She ended up finding hers less than a block from her apartment, for a steal of $250.
Comparing our pics, it amazes me how very similar the places we sit down every day to do our makeup are. Mine is basically blue, with accents of brown; Tyna’s brown, with accents of blue. But also, notice the art deco details of both of them. They just don’t make furniture like that anymore! Seriously, when’s the last time you saw a wood-carved feather plume or a bakelite handle?
But enough of my yacking, let’s get to the good part; the makeup! See all the pinks, corals and reds in the below pic? My lipgloss to not-lipgloss makeup ratio is way out of proportion (and these are just the ones on display – without even counting the huge basket full of glosses hidden in one of the cabinets.) There really is something wrong with me…
But lest you think I’m the only product hoarder, please note below; there’s not a whole of surface space left on Tyna’s vanity either!
Here’s some closer images, take a look…
