I love getting ready, it’s probably one of the biggest joys working in the fashion industry. We’re always getting ready, primped, and dressed for something. Creating a beautiful space in order to feel beautiful however? Such. A. Challenge. I, like most other busy women in the world, cram myself into the bathroom hoping to pop on mascara before scrambling to get on the train downtown. I realized recently how crazy that is, seeing as though I have a gorgeous vintage vanity just begging to be used in the corner of my bedroom!
I’m someone who really appreciates when a space is beautiful when getting ready, it helps put you in the right mindset that translates into feeling pretty. Of course, that’s an insanely hard thing to find in life, but especially in New York City, where I have been known to apply a red lip before a meal. Hey, a cab isn’t the safest place to apply a matte red lip!
Here’s exactly how I turned this $100 vanity into a dreamy space to get ready!
A very special thank you to my good friends with Ulta Beauty for keeping my vanity all stocked up! My favorite products on hand you can find at Ulta Beauty and ulta.com include the above pictured NARS Cheek Palette – Three iconic NARS blushes in one palette. Limited-edition for holiday with beautiful packaging in the most gorgeous casing, $45.00!!
My absolute favorite brush set at the moment Real Techniques – You Glow Kit – 15-piece brush set with two sponges, $49.99, launching 10/21 anything with glitter is of a course a win for me but these brushes apply so flawlessly!! It’s a must for your own personal vanity.
The warmest and coziest perfume of the season is Philosophy Fresh Cream Warm Cashmere – Inspired by the most-loved Fresh Cream scent and available exclusively at Ulta Beauty, $40.00. I love to layer scents, and this one layers perfectly over a coconut body creme.
