Makeup Vanity | Dressing Table

A makeup vanity is a smaller table with a mirror, a stool, and several small drawers to store makeup and perfume in. Taking formal cues from early French and British dressing tables, the modern makeup vanity has since become popular and essential to the beauty routines of many women and men. Most makeup vanities can be found as a stand-alone furniture piece in a bedroom or as a built-in unit in a bathroom. Many modern makeup vanities have back-lit lighting around the mirror which provide a softer and more favorable glow to a person’s appearance.

How do you organize a makeup vanity?

The best way to organize a makeup vanity is to utilize dishes, brush holders, and containers while grouping products based on use. The most used cosmetics should be placed on display in a lucite container while other items can be stored in smaller bins and chests. Ornate dishes can be used to hold jewelry, adding both function and aesthetic to the makeup vanity.

What is the best type of light for a makeup vanity?

The best type of light for a makeup vanity is the white light of an LED (light emitting diode). LED lights are similar in color and overall emittance to warm natural sunlight, which is actually the most ideal condition for applying cosmetics. It is very important to make sure the light is evenly distributed around the vanity and not just placed at the top. To note, a type of light to avoid for a makeup vanity is fluorescent lighting.

What kind of chair should be used with a makeup vanity?

Like the name suggests, a makeup vanity is usually paired with a vanity chair. This kind of chair is typically a short stool that can come in various shapes and styles (swiveling, upholstered, round).
