How to create a chic makeup station

You may think that makeup stations are only for high-profile celebrities, but the truth is that this feature can be incorporated into your home with a little creativity. Whether you're living in your own bachelorette pad, or simply want a space to call your own in the midst of the messy bathroom you share with your husband, designate an area of your home to as a place to make you feel beautiful. Take a look at some of these helpful tips to create your own vanity station below.

  • Choose the right furniture: When it comes to makeup stations, you can either purchase a vanity table equipped with a mirror, or opt for DIY furniture. An old desk can easily be repurposed into a sleek vanity. Paint the desk to stylishly match your bedroom décor.
  • Get organized: "To organize beauty supplies, drawer dividers come in handy to ensure makeup doesn't become a jumbled mess, while tabletop organizers can function big for drawer-less vanities.  Acrylic options tend to work best since they can easily be wiped down as makeup tends to create small dusty messes," states Houzz.com contributing blogger Jen Jones. 
  • Let there be light: No one wants to walk out of their house looking like a clown. To minimize makeup faux pas, natural light is the best option, allowing you to see what your makeup will look like when you step outside. Try to situate your vanity near a window. To let an abundance of sunlight into your bedroom, accessorize your windows with custom window coverings from Metropolitan Window Fashions.
