A Vanity Essential

I really love CVS’s dual storage system for cotton balls and cotton buds (~5 in. diameter x ~5 in. tall, weighs ~1 lb.)!  Keeps all your vanity essentials dust-free and also saves some desk space (which is an issue for me).  I don’t tend to use cotton pads or makeup sponges but they will also fit easily into this container.  It’s a great compliment to acrylic vanity storage systems.  I usually keep mine atop my MAC palette storage system, which is a small acrylic CD rack.  While I’m on the topic, here are other vanity essentials:

  • brush cleaner
  • brush guards
  • hand sanitizer
  • box of tissues
  • mixing medium e.g. Paula Dorf’s Transformer, Visine, and the like.
  • wet wipes
  • disposable eyeshadow applicators
  • disposable mascara wands
  • spatulas
  • nail polish remover
  • makeup remover
  • tweezer
  • eyelash curler
  • nail clipper
  • rubbing alcohol
  • rag to clean brushes
  • pencil sharpeners regular & large

I must have left something off this list?  Please comment below about your fave vanity essentials.  I would love to know!
