DIY Make Up Vanity On A Budget

Today I present to you a DIY Make up vanity on a budget. For myself I have a lot of make up and I need a lot of storage space, many vanities are small and lack the proper place to store all of your make up. Not to mention that they can get very expensive. When I sit at my vanity I want all of my make up within an arm’s reach without having to go somewhere else and go get the rest of my make up.

This is why the first step to my DIY Make up Vanity on a Budget was to use a computer desk over a typical vanity desk.
I purchased this Homestar Desk and 4-Shelf Bookcase Set (click here to purchase).  The good thing about this desk is it has an attached book shelf that can be used for separate storage space. I was also able to assemble the desk myself and it was not too difficult.

For creating the right storage space I used these fold-able cloth storage boxes (click here to purchase).  I bought two packs of them and they come in all shapes and sizes. To put them together all you have to do is to put the insert in. I created most of the storage drawers by utilizing the book shelf on the side of the desk and the shelves under the desk. I have a lot of make up and creating a set up like this allowed for all of my make up to be stored within an arms reach. I chose neutral colors but the drawers come in many colors as well.

For the makeup I use all the time I want for it to be easily accessible along with my brushes. Which is why I opted to get several acrylic organizers to store my make up in. Check them out below.

For the mirror, I chose to go with a lighted vanity mirror (click here to purchase). You can chose to put a mirror on a wall behind you but for me I really like to see my makeup up close. It helps me see what I am doing. Which is why I opted for this mirror, it also has a 2x and 3x zoom mirror on the side as well. Plus opting for a smaller mirror over a larger mirror can save you some money.
