No. And I always find it odd when people talk about displaying their makeup. For me, it would be like having my hairbrush or toe nail clipper “on display”.

Having thought about it, I do keep empty perfume and scent bottles (if they have a crimped on sprayer, I get hubs to take that off) and use them for lily of the valley in spring. They’re small and perfect for those tiny flowers (one of my favourite flowers) and make for charming little clusters around the house. But that’s it – no actual makeup (or skin care bottles, shampoo, etc.) on display.

Same. But maybe it’s because I see makeup as a functional thing. For someone buying makeup for aesthetics or collecting purposes, displaying makes more sense.

I keep my perfumes out on my vanity, but that’s more for ease of access that anything! (It’s not a particularly aesthetically cohesive group, nor particularly niche/expensive in a way that would make sense to show off.)

Out if necessity I do. There’s just nowhere else to put everything. Admittedly, my makeup stash is ridiculously out of control, plus I don’t live in the biggest of spaces. Perhaps one day, I’ll have room for a Helmer.

There are some products displayed on wall shelves: the Her Universe x Infinity War palette and lip glosses, the boxes from the ColourPop Midnight Masquerade duos I bought, the Pur x My Little Pony palette and glosses, and the Wet N Wild x Pac-Man glosses. I still use that stuff, but I keep it nicely arranged on shelves next to my makeup desk.

I don’t have items on display for decorating or aesthetic purposes.
My makeup is stored in a drawer, but my brushes are on my vanity just because that’s the spot I have a place for them. I rarely use fragrance, so that’s on a drawer as well. The only other things on display are the skincare items I use often (cleanser, toner, SPF), because I would hate opening a drawer each time I use them. 😅

No, but I have planned on getting some wooden Asian open work supports for the Year of the Rat brush, though it probably won’t live anywhere near my m/u. I haven’t been to the Asian mktplc since, you know….

I have a shelf above my makeup organizer with perfumes and Lunatick Cosmetics Elvira and Vampira coffin palettes.

Also, on my vanity – which is an authentic Joerns Brothers art deco family heirloom – I have my great-grandma’s ivory inlaid face powder compact, a Louboutin lipstick, and the Tarina Tarantino eyeshadow quint with pearl skulls on the lid.

HI. I have all my makeup on display, it’s on my desk because it’s where I put my makeup and it’s easy to access when I want to swatch something to convince myself I already own this shade. 😉 To be fair, I don’t have a huge collection (for me, it is) so it don’t take up so much space. I tried having everything in drawers and didn’t like it at all because I need to be able to see what I got otherwise I don’t use it. I do like it better when it’s displayed because it makes me happy to see my collection, I use makeup to have fun and play with colors and techniques, I don’t see it as a necessity or something functional at all.

Yes, but to be fair my husband is very crafty with wood and has made me custom items to display them in my “makeup room/office”. Mainly eye shadow palettes. I also find when I see them I become more creative otherwise I forget that I have it (sad but true)!

Sort of? I have a small dresser-type table to house my makeup collection. I have the eyeshadow palettes, highlighters, and lipsticks on the top with cheek products and loose micellanous things in the drawers.
