Desk & Makeup Tour!

Hello beautiful! I have a new video up! :) Here I show you around my desk & makeup area, and I also show you I organize my makeup products. I didn't go too much into detail on the specific products because I think that would've made the video really long (and not sure if you guys are interested in knowing all of that anyways!). But hopefully this will give you a good overview & some organizational tips! I will still probably keep changing things up, knowing myself, but I am pretty happy with the way it looks now, clean, organized and pretty.

I remember when I used to just have a little makeup bag in my bathroom which probably only contained about 10 items. Slowly the collection grew and it "moved out" from the bathroom and into the main living space :) I love love love makeup, so it's fun to have this space now. Anyway I hope you enjoy the video my loves! Links are below XOXO

  5. Perfection! So clean, organized and pretty. Though I must say your blog is very distracting for someone trying to get school work done! Now I have this urge to go organize my makeup drawers and light candles... :)

  16. Hi Annie, love to see you back filming! Thank you for giving us a view into your makeup-area! I actually liked espescially the view from your window, just too see, what you see everyday from your window to the streets of NY. I also use the UD nakeds most often, but I also love E/S from MAC, don´t you use any?

  21. Wow! Those acrylic cases are not that bad (price wise!) I love how you organize your lip products and glosses and the nail polish rack is perfect - storing your foundations in there is a wonderful idea. I've always loved the flowers you have in the background in your videos. The space around you is very calming and beautiful! I am definitely overdue for a room revamp :) thanks for the tips & inspiration! <3

    1. Γεια σου Πιστη. Ειμαι και εγω subscriber της Annie απο την Ελλαδα. Μπορεις να βρεις οτι θελεις στο www.amazon.co.uk Απο Αγγλια μπορεις να κανεις παραγγελιες χωρις να πληρωσεις τελωνειο και αρκει να προτιμησεις πραγματα που γραφουν οτι πωλουνται απο το amazon (Dispatched from and sold by Amazon.co.uk) ωστε να αποφυγεις και τα εξοδα αποστολης. Με μια πιστωτικη ή καρτα pre-paid γινονται ολα ευκολα. Ελπιζω να βοηθησα. :)

      (Hi Pisti. I'm a subscriber from Greece too. You can find anything you want at www.Amazon.co.uk. You can make purchases without paying taxes and if you choose products which are "dispached and sold by Amazon.co.uk" you can avoid packaging costs. If you own a visa card everything can be done easily. Hope I helped.)

  43. Dear Annie, you could not imagine what kind of inspiration you are in my life, from food and diet, healthy and optimistic lifestyle to beauty and fashion tips, just have a feeling like I know you for whole my life :) you have beautiful personality, and I would really love if you could talk about prioritizing regarding the expenses for make up and everything, because it is really difficult economy times, and how do you manage to handle it. Thanks in advance ...just stay as you are :*

  44. Love your set up! I can see why you love doing your makeup there and how wonderful that your room gets a lot of natural light!

  45. Hi Annie,
    So three things: 1. I love your videos and blog, You are a beautiful person on the inside which is reflected through your video. 2. YAY love that the paw paw ointment featured in this video, 3. I'm going to clean out all my old makeup that I never use, I like that you streamline your makeup and give away or throw out all that you don't use, Definitely applying that rule to my life. :D

  53. Hi Annie!! I was wondering what kind of camera your are using to film all your videos and pictures? BTW, love all your videos!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Hey Annie..
    i just love how you have organized everything!!!
    I admire your attitude and everything about you!!
    U're just awesome..
    I have been reading your blog everyday

    I wanted a small favor from you...
    There's an amazing offer in e.l.f cosmetics!! Here in India it's just too expensive...i'd rather buy MAC instead.
    A brush set is for $3 but here it costs about $50.. So i don't see the point at all..
    So i just wanted to ask you if you could ship my order to India..
    I will transfer the money to you first for the shipping!!
    Please..

  55. Hi Annie! I love all the clear and mirror accents, you're right, it's so classy and chic! I was so inspired, I ordered a cheaper version of the acrylic draws you have for my much smaller make up collection. They are on their way from amazon, http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/product-gallery/B004KKXA58/ref=cm_ciu_pdp_images_0?ie=UTF8&index=0 , what do you think? :)
    Love you!!

  56. How do you get the Vika Amon table top attached to the Alex drawer? Did you just place it on top of both drawers? Is it sturdy enough to do so?

    ReplyDelete
  57. Hi Annie,

    Where did you get your black and white mini desk lamp located on top of your desk? It is adorable!

  58. I love how you organize your desk! Very simple, yet chic at the same time!
