Kidding aside, we're absolutely in love with Anthea's beauty space, from its chic tropical aesthetic down to the way she organized her products. She shared a full tour of the area on her YouTube channel, with a sneak peek at her huge makeup collection included.
Below, we list some of our favorite details from the tour, with some exclusive photos and tips straight from the makeup artist herself!
1. The white and gold color palette
Anthea wanted to match the look of her vanity area to the rest of her home, so she opted for an elegant white color palette with pops of gold and beige. She was inspired by the "mid-century bohemian" aesthetic of lifestyle blogger Kate Spiers, and sought the help of interior designer Justine Arcega-Bumanlag to achieve the look.
If you look closer at her vanity table, you'll find her makeup brushes that are housed snugly in what appears to be brush holders, but they're actually repurposed plant pots! "Put in anything that you think can serve as a decorative piece but still be functional," she tells Preview.
2. The rattan and solihiya furniture
To add to that chic tropical vibe, Anthea used rattan and solihiya furniture but with a modern twist. Unfortunately though, you can't just grab the same pieces from the department store. The makeup artist had her cabinets, shelves, and table custom made by JP Furniture and Construct to suit her needs. That said, you can cop that gorgeous swivel chair from West Elm!
3. The organization system
For someone like Anthea who owns a ton of beauty products, there obviously has to be a system in place to keep everything organized. What she did was she sorted them either according brand, purpose, or colors. "I organized my foundation in one drawer and concealers in another. It just looks neater and easier to find things this way," the makeup artist shares.
Another trick to her system are all the labeled acrylic cases, emphasizing that they should be clear so you can see the products right away. Lastly, she places the products and tools she uses the least at the very bottom.
For bulkier items like makeup palettes and blushes, she keeps them inside the built-in drawers on her vanity table. This way, she has more space to lay the products flat and make taking them out much quicker.
4. The pull out shelves
Another thing that makes Anthea's storage so efficient is the fact that the shelves can easily be pulled out. No need to strain her arms just to reach products at the back!
5. The round mirror
Instead of a traditional makeup mirror with built-in lights, the makeup artist went the minimal route. She opted for a simple round mirror with a brass rim, which matches the theme of the space perfectly. Besides, who needs extra bulbs when her home has all that gorgeous natural light?
