I have a desk in my room with all my makeup and a lamp for good lighting so I use that,
but I kind of want to move to a bathroom, but I don’t have my own bathroom so it’s kind of not an option.
But we are house hunting so if I get my own bathroom I will be ecstatic! lol

I used to use my bathroom but it was too small. So I have a tiny setup in my room with a rug underneath to catch the mess I make at times with loose powders and the occasional dropping of powder products and breaking…happened to my bronzer earlier this month. I have a tiny tv dinner table I use and a desk lamp and a stackable storage thing from Walmart to store my makeup. It’s not ideal but it works fine. The mirror part is the worse. I have a mirror on my wall that I use for eyeliner but otherwise I use a handheld mirror.

My bathroom is really tiny with really unflattering lighting, so I can’t put my make-up on there. Instead I put my make-up on in the kitchen. It has great natural lighting and I can put all my make-up and brushes on the kitchen countertop. Works perfectly !!

my bedroom. So I can face my big window, giving me a good natural lighting. So I always know how it’ll look outside and if it’s not overdone

I used to have a desk in my dining room (hey, its big & has 2 huge windows!)but yesterday I bought a vanity for my bedroom! Yay! Its cute & I’m excited. =D
It has a big mirror & I have a smaller lighted mirror for eyeliner and stuff like that. I still get good natural light in there too.

i do it in the bathroom and i sit on my sink to get closer to the mirror!! my counter space is super super tiny, so i put all of my stuff in those stackable drawer things, although what i tend to use everyday ends up crowded around the sink lol!

i have basically the whole closet in my bathroom for my makeup…i store it in target drawers (7.99 a piece)…i have two of those and they have 3 drawers each…and i have a traincase that i’m using to build up my makeup kit for weddings and stuff…my bathroom has excellent lighting so i use it the most to do my makeup

Oh my…good question. I don’t have enough space for my makeup. I have tried putting it in plastic bins that stack, but I find I will simply reach for what’s on the bathroom counter, rather than what might be perfect.

I wish there were a perfect bathroom fixture for makeup!

I have a vanity in the bedroom, but I do all my makeup in the bathroom, because it gets a real bright natural lighting.

Hi Christine, I have a question: What’s the best place to store makeup in the summer? I feel all my liquid foundations and other creams are going to melt. =(

I put my makeup on in the bedroom.The dresser my stuff sits on is not ideal because I’m not facing natural light. Switching my dresser to other end near the window. I have huge windows which brings in a lot of natural light.

i have this walkin closet cum bathroom…it has not used as a bathroom, but as a room/closet. I keep my make up there, but end up doin make up near window on a table….those bathroom lights are pretty deceptive..

it depends, it’s mainly in the living because i have more natural light there but sometimes I do my makeup in my bedroom
I use my bathroom mainly for shower and then skin care, but not for make up

i have this desk in my room that i converted into a vanity and i put a mirror up. but its a little too high so i use a compact for my mirror for everything else and i use the big mirror for eyeliner. thats pretty much where my makeup is. its not the best set up but it works.

I usually use the powder room downstairs so I’m right out the door afterwards. But this wk I’ve been using my bedroom being as though Ive set up my little vanity area. I gotta move it closer to the window though so I can have better natural light.
