Spring cleaning for my vanity!

My vanity area has been a complete mess for the past week or more, covered in dust, dirty brushes, and random crap just lying around. No wonder I haven't been in the mood to make any new videos, or try out any fun makeup looks. So I decided to tackle that bitch and give it a facelift and a thorough cleaning.

BEFORE:

AFTER!
On the last image you can see my overflowing brush holder (I need to make a new one since I've acquired many new brushes since its inception), my q-tip jar, random mascaras, eyeliners and lip pencils. The three bottles are (left to right) spray toner, foundation filled into a pump dispenser, and MAC brush cleanser in a spray container.

Feeling much better already! Now I just need to tackle the laundry stacking up on the couch behind. :p

  3. Great looking face lift ;) (Does that mean new videos are on their way?)

    * For some reason, the most interesting thing is this fabulous stack of great looking books. Can you tell I am more of a bookworm than a make-up geek... (no pun intended) ?

  10. Love that you have lipstick marks on the paper towels. That made me smile.

  11. Actually those paper towels are printed with red kiss lips! Haha, it was some special Valentine's Day edition print I think, lol.


    The brushes would get dusty if you don't use them frequently but I use and wash my brushes so much so I haven't found that to be a problem. It depends how often you would use them I guess.

  12. Your vanity area looks nice...I need to make a new brush holder, too, mine's over flowing as well.

  13. Reminds me to clean my desk...all those books and random makeups and papers aaah xDD

    Anyway, I always admire how you are able to take precise pictures of your makeup. The colors look vibrant, but when I took mine, it always look washed out. How do you keep your pictures true to its colors? I hope you could enlighten me with your awesome photography skills~

    Thank you so much :D
