In my room. But I love in a student house and I have a sink and mirror in my room. All my beauty stuff is stored underneath my sink. In my future home, I will probably need two bathrooms…one for my (not yet existing) husband and one for me 😀

That’s what I did!!! Upstairs, the master is and the guest bath are connected, so I left him the master and I transformed the guest into my make up closet. I wanted the color scheme to be dusty rose and light brown, but that’s where he drew the line, no pink rooms =(
I think I’ll do it anyway ;-P

GAHHHHHHH!! I want to come live in your house with you Claudia 🙂 and I wont mind if you have a pink and brown make-up bathroom…I LOVE LOVE LOVE the idea!!

I also get ready in my bathroom, which just happens to be pink…the tub is pink as are the double sinks. Its the original 1950s hardware and fixtures…very wacky…but in a totally cheezy funky fun way 🙂

I have a big mirror on the back of my door, so I do my makup infront of it, standing up.
My room is only 2metres wide and 3 meters long, I have no room for a vanity, lol!

In my bedroom. We have a built in cupboard with big mirror doors, so I can stand in front of that and apply my make up (that is also kept in my bedroom).

In my room, i have a huge mirror hanging on my wall with shelves next to it for all my makeup and hair stuff. It’s the only way i can do it cos i hate small mirrors 🙂

in my bedroom. I have this crappy little Conair lighted makeup mirror that sits on top of my very tall dresser. It’s, like, chin height. Kind of a weird setup, but I’m used to it! Someday I will get a better mirror…

I put my mineral foundation and blusher on standing up in front of the window in my bedroom, and the rest I put on while sitting in the couch in the living room, also in front of the window.

In my “makeup room”. Me and SO bought a hosue with 3 rooms. but we only need ours, plus a spare room for guests, his comp desk etc, so i turned the other psare room into my makeup room.

I just turned my old comp desk( like the ones from office depot etc) into my vanity! it is perfect, and me and SO added a shelf where i put my nail polish rack and my everyday hair stuff.

Heres a link to my makeup room:


Where did you get that rack for your nail polish? That room looks awesome. I commend you on your taste!

I have a lighted medicine cabinet from Ikea that I put on the wall in my room, and a bookshelf type thing with 6 cubby holes (I think it’s for closets) below that where I can set stuff down that I’ve taken out of the cabinet. I’ve also glued a couple of metal pencil cups to the surface for my hair dryer, and for my curling and flat irons.

I do it in my room; I have a dresser with a big mirror and next to it i have 2 white plastic drawer sets that hold my makeup.

In my bedroom I’ve a nice black cabinet with shelves inside and one of those standing mirrors resting sideways on top against the wall but I use a smaller vanity mirror my brother jokes that my room is a complete mess the only organized area is my makeup area

I have a vanity area between my bedroom and bathroom, which is where I keep most of my makeup. The rest I keep in my dresser closet, which I hardly use.

i have a vanity in my room and it has an ample space to accomodate all my makeup thingies and beauty products. I do my makeup there but i never put any of my stuff on it because my two year old son will have a fiesta experimenting and destroying all of them. I keep my things locked up safely somewhere away from his sight and reach.

Downstairs bathroom as it’s one of the rooms I can get natural sunlight in. And huge mirror and counter help 🙂

Sitting on my bed, in the bathroom, in the car (if I’m getting a ride), at the bus stop, or at work before I start if I’m running very late. 😀

In my dining room! I have a big mirror in there, and the room itself gets wonderful natural light in the mornings.

Since I’m always on the go (meaning in a rush because I’m always late), I either apply it on the BART train or at my desk! When I wake up early enough, I’ll put make-up on in the bathroom but the dining room is best for lighting.

In the bathroom, though when I’m at my bf’s house sometimes I will sit on his bed and use a hand mirror because I feel bad for hogging the bathroom when we both need to get ready for work

depends on where i am at, if im at home, then in my room cuz i have a vanity, if im at school then either in my car, or in the bathroom lol. if im out of town, then the bathroom…

We have a “dressing area” where the vanity and sink are separate from the room that houses the toilet and bathtub, so I do my makeup standing at the vanity. I’m trying to keep my stash small enough so that it all fits in the top right drawer (which is my side) and four cups on the vanity (3 for various sized brushes and one for liners and mascara).

We live in an Apt for now until we can buy a house. Since space is limited I took over the dining room area for my desk, computer and makeup stuff. So that is where the “magic” happens!!!

Bathroom – it gets good natural light in the morning and has a light pretty much directly over the sink for other times, plus it has a huge mirror I can get really close to it, which helps because I am EXTREMELY short sighted and need to be about 3 inches away from the mirror when applying my eye makeup.
All my makeup is stacked in a plastic drawer tidy right below the mirror and the toilet cistern nearby is very handy for holding my brush roll for easy access.

I pack what I will use on a big bag and (I know i shouldn’t do this) I apply on my way to work. Blending eyeshadows and everything.
IF I have time then I might start on my bathroon and finish in the car.

In my room. I wish I have a Vanity Mirror to do my makeup so it would be so much easier for me. Sometimes I take my makeup with me to work and do it there.

in my vanity in my bedroom.

but most comes with me everywhere in a bag in my purse. i usually have very very very big bags!

I have a gorgeous dressing table with a 3-part mirror and a cute little chair in the bathroom. Hubby bought it for me last year. I lurrrve it!!!

I use my comuter desk it doubles as my vanity. I have more makeup on it than stuff for my computer. I have my lighted mirror and everything all over here.

Mainly in my room in front of my vanity. I try to keep a small makeup bag with be with mini versions of the makeup I use, just for touch ups. I like things organized so my vanity has nooks and crannies for each item.

In my bathroom since it has a bigger surface area than my vanity in my bedroom. Plus, its easier to clean my brushes and my hands.

I have a desk in my walk-in closet with a light-up make up mirror. It’s a great setup for me since it can get rather cluttered, so it’s out of sight 😉

In my room. I have a sliding mirror door to my closet and so I stand up while putting on my makeup. But when I move out with my boyfriend I told him im getting a vanity desk haha and he was totally cool with it =)

I have a pretty sweet bathroom setup. I have a three level floor shelving unit from target and got trays with lips on the end to place on top of the shelves which keeps my lipsticks and other stuff that can roll from going all over the place.

Oops! Totally read that wrong :).

Bathroom always. The lighting is never good in my bedroom and I prefer having the sink/q-tips/etc handy. Plus a bathroom cabinet window is always my favorite mirrors (since they swing open).

I just sit on my bed and just use a big mirror and do it that way lol. I have all my makeup in the tall pull out drawer rubbermaids from Wal-mart. I have the 5 drawer and it is perfect because I can fit everything in it with plenty of room to spare!

I have my makeup cases (eye shadow has its own case and soon blush will as well) on the work tables where I do my sewing and play at being creative. It’s the first place I turn to in the morning so it’s the right place for me.

I had a beat up case that I carried in my purse but lost it because I put it somewhere else…I’ll never find it.

I read this wrong too! I put on moisturizers and primer in the bathroom but on makeup by the light of my Ott light on my sewing table if I have some time. I use the poorly lit powder room downstairs if I time is short.

wow I need to find some proper space for my makeup- there is no good place anywhere in the house for natural light so I use a Rimmel makeup mirror with built in lights sat at my dining table and as many lights on around me….mostly works ok!

Monday thru Friday I get to work soooo early i apply my makeup in my office bathroom. On the weekend usually my dresser in my room.

i have facial care stuff in the main bathroom and makeup in the half bath. (i’m afraid the moisture from when I shower might ruin my makeup in the long run!) so i often end up moving between the two bathrooms!

My bedroom because I have a vanity where I keep the majority of my makeup. I sometimes put it on in my bathroom when I need better lighting

Bathroom! But it’s so funny because I don’t have ANY counter space so I literally have to walk back and forth a few trips lugging my makeup form my room to the bathroom in order to do it every morning HAHAHA :D!
