Create The Perfect Makeup Vanity With These 16 Decor Finds
Creating a makeup vanity that is fun, colorful, and unique will leave you excited to get ready for the day. Plus, it'll become its own decor statement in the process! If your vanity is missing a few key elements or its multitasking as your desk, then you've come to the right place.
Clever shelves, unique trays, and pretty stools are elements that you can bring together to create the perfect vanity. You can use this space to paint your nails, do your skin cycling routine, or put on makeup, and these essentials will help you sit pretty, just in time for the holiday party season!
Stools For Your Makeup Vanity
LumiSource Jasmine Contemporary Vanity Stool ($98, was $130)
This pink and gold stool is perfect for lovers of girly glam. With circles, arches, and an open design, the base is like its own piece of art that is way cooler than four standard legs. Plus, the cushion will keep you extra comfy while you perfect your eyeliner.
This mushroom decor piece isn't just reserved for cottagecore spaces. You can add it to an extra colorful room to contrast all of the different shades or use it to add playful detail to a room full of geometric pieces. Whichever way you choose to use it, this is one stool that is too cute to pass up.
A simple four-leg stool gets a colorful upgrade with a multicolored, floral cushion. The best part about this piece is that each stool is different, so whichever one you receive will be totally unique!
Ciara Flower Vanity Stool ($139)
Add flower power to your vanity with a green stool that is the perfect shade for both fall and spring. It's just retro enough to add some 70s vibes to your room, but the brass tone of the base keeps it from looking too dated.
Mirrors You Can Hang Above Your Makeup Vanity
Carson Leather Strap Mirror ($74, was $89)
If you're using a desk without a mirror to do your makeup (or if your vanity just doesn't have a mirror to begin with), consider a hanging mirror. Not only is this circle option chic and bohemian, but it'll keep things hands-free while you get ready for the day.
Waverly Arch Mirror ($79, was $89)
We're big fans of using funky mirrorsas art, and this wavy, mini mirror is the perfect size to pop on your vanity. It's great for people who want to try out a fun piece that's not a rectangle or a circle because it lets you add personality to your space without committing to a crazy color.
Combine your mirror and storage with a tiered dish and mirror combo. Since the dishes are a useful place to store rings or smaller makeup items, it also frees up room by using up the vertical space instead of cluttering the surface of the vanity.
If you're a big fan of Regency-era decor, then you *have* to grab this ornate mirror. It has just enough detail to look like it's straight out of Bridgerton, but since the detail is reserved for one spot on the frame, it won't overwhelm your space the way that other ornate designs might.
A smaller vanity desk is perfect for storing your books and houseplants as well as for doing your makeup. It has just enough room for a mirror or makeup organizer, and you can even add a floating shelf on the wall right above it. We'd consider this a small apartment must-have.
Hazelnut Ribbed Wood Rianna Desk With Drawers ($263, was $350)
This simple desk is a sleek and modern addition to any room that allows you to use your makeup, mirrors, and other trinkets as decor. We love that the drawers are hidden — that way, you have storage without making it super obvious.
Zipcode DesignFromm Desk ($157, was $190)
If you need your vanity to pull double duty as your WFH desk, consider an option that has plenty of storage for all your items. This desk features multiple levels and shelves that can be divided between your books and laptop charger and your beauty products.
Makeup Vanity Accessories
If you have a ton of products that you can't seem to keep track of (we've been there), consider an organizer. This clear tray is a fun pick for anyone who loves collecting beautiful makeup products because it lets the color and design of the products themselves peek through.
If you need just a bit of extra storage, a small wall shelf is the perfect size for nail polish bottles or your favorite perfume. We're obsessed with the playful and modern design of this pick, and it comes in four wood colors so you can ensure it best matches the aesthetic of your room.
This chic and Scandi-style tray is perfect for anyone with a minimalist routine. There's just enough room for a few brushes and products, and it'll fit right on top of your vanity.
We can't tell you how many times we've gotten our makeup just right and then been late. What can we say, we can't leave until a beauty look is perfect! If you're like us, grab a modern clock like this one to help you keep track of the time.
Add something unique to your vanity with a vintage glass heart that's the perfect size for rings or other small trinkets. It adds a dose of color to your decor, but the transparent design still feels toned down.
