My Vanity + My 5 Favorite Make-Up Brushes

I’ve totally forgotten to share the vanity details on here so I thought I’d do a quick re-cap of this area of my room really quickly! 

My vanity is here.
My x-bench is here & the bowl is here.
My fig tree is from Silks are Forever - this is a 6” but I prefer 7” but it sold out. The ceilings in this room is 10” or 12?! Need to ask John, lol! I will say these aren't as nice - I wish I would've gotten this one that is the same price and better quality.
My rug is c/o of Lulu & Georgia.
The mirror is here, BUT I had to order this twice & it was broken both times so I finally just got it replaced in Tulsa. (they did give me my money back both times!)

Now for makeup brushes... if I had to pick 5 makeup brushes it would be these 5- these are my top five favorite!
1. Sigma F80: For foundation application - its a must have.
2. Beauty Blender: I use it in several steps of my makeup application.
3. Sigma E40: I use this for my transition color in my crease which is my favorite & to contour my nose.
4. Sigma F40: For perfect application of blush.
5. Chanel #1: I use this for powder & bronzer.


  1. Your vanity is so gorgeous! thank you for the brush recommendations!


  2. Love that vanity, it's so gorgeous! Those brushes are the best! I have two E40's; one to contour my nose and one for blending out my eyeshadow. It's one of my faves!

  3. I absolutely love your vanity! I need to try the beauty blender. The sponge I have right now isn't effective for blending my makeup.

  4. I recently started using the Beauty Blender *Pure* - the white one- made specifically for people with sensitive skin. It is denser (great for concealer application) and also dye-free. A great alternative to the pink one!

    1. Oh i haven’t seen that one - I will have to look it up and order it!!

  5. Wouldn't mind trying out Chanel brushes!

  6. Thank you so much for sharing, your vanity is so gorgeous! The makeup brushes sound amazing too - I might have to pick up a couple!

  12. Is that an artis oval brush? If so what are your thoughts on it? I've been contemplating on getting one but can't decide if I should or not.

  13. I am so glad you did this post! I have been eyeing your vanity in your snapchats and loved it! So pretty!

  14. Love your vanity!


  15. I love this post!! I have a cowhide rug too and just love it!! Your vanity is so beautiful and that mirror is off the charts gorg! XO


  16. I love your vanity set-up! I'm in the process of making over my 'blogging/getting ready/office room' and I love this style! I'd love to have a live fiddle leaf plant but I've heard they are kind of difficult to care for, so I may need to go the artificial plant route too! Love the pot you have it in too!


  17. Beautiful post!

  18. Such an useful post!

  19. I'll choose makeup brushes that are essential for creating any look I desire.For instance: If i am applying liquid foundation, I want to choose a synthetic brush, as synthetic hairs soak up less product than natural hair.
