DIY Makeup Station

I have always longed for a little dressing table or area, where I can apply my makeup but up until recently I never had the room as the furniture was either too big to small or I didn’t like how it looked. So I decided to create my own makeup station or dressing table if you like and thought I would share with you my new lil set up and give anyone who is want to find a dressing table or do a DIY one some inspiration. 

I decided that I wanted something that looked quite unique & quirky and be something that I loved, I already have some Alex Draws from Ikea so I didn’t need anything with storage. As the Alex draws already hold a lot of my makeup collection. I decided to have a little scroll through Urban Outfitters as they always tend to do furniture that I love and I found this shelf which was perfect and exactly what I had planned in my head. I ordered it and I love it. It’s not too big or too small and can fit my faces of the day on it and has plenty of room. 

Here is a little glimpse into another Makeup look that’s coming up very soon…….

I just love how it looks very clean and simplistic without being to over the top and I prefer it to big old bulky furniture. If you don’t have the room for a dressing table or a section where you can do your makeup then honestly invest in this shelf it’s very sturdy, supports all my makeup & I think it looks good and creative. I’ve added a little mirror above the shelf as you can see, along with some of my brushes (which are not clean sorry in advance) a little fake succulent plant and a scented candle because why ever not?!?!?

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post let me know in the comments some of your favourite makeup brushes or products.

How do you store your makeup?




  1. This is so cute ^_^ I've currently got the malm desk from Ikea, but i love the idea of shelves, i recently saw the idea of using cube ones above a desk which i'm thinking of doing.


    1. I do love Ikea when it comes to furniture.
