What’s in a Name (The Vanity) Part 1

What does it mean to have a Vanity?

I think every classy woman dreams to have a vanity at home and the more about the products she is going to use to look at her best. I own a vanity myself and it’s not common to have a vanity at home and where do you place it? Even better, what’s on a vanity?

It’s not only about buying the furniture, it’s all about how you use it or what products you think deserve to be showed off on the vanity.

My vanity is a 2 piece furniture, first i bought the main desk and later i dreamed about having a mirror and some room to show off my beautiful products. All my lipsticks are in the shoves. That makes me also not forget them and i know exactly where they are ;-)
Everyone who comes for a photoshooting at my home, will be having the opportunity to get all fancy at my Vanity corner since it’s standing in my big bathroom. What better place to start the day than on the vanity?


Something that really can’t be missing on a vanity set is the traditional Vintage vanity Brush set. existing mostly in a 3 piece combination, but i lost my clothing brush on a very unfortunate way.
It’s just one of those things that are really essential.
You can find them easily on ebay or amazon and you have to be lucky to have an unique example. I have 2 Brush sets, one with flowers and an Art Deco set in red.
I used both sets in my photo shootings.


The second piece that can not be missed in on a vanity is something that is really adding that extra on doing up the hair. The smell of Layrite Deluxe Pomade is really irresistible!
It’s an extremely versatile Pomade which provides excellent hold for short, fine, or normal hair and can be used to create put together or messy styles with a medium style.

This traditional pomade has a mild vanilla fragrance and looks and feels like an extremely thick gel. it’s easy to spread in the palm of your hands, distributes easily through your hair and is easy to style with your hands or a comb. I’v been using it for a while now and i must say that it’s a real must have. No more frizzy hair!


This is a very beautiful vintage flowers graved decorated box (which i think is unique in it’s kind) and has a flawless application with a matte formula. This natural mica gives the complexion a luminous, soft radiance. It’s a velvet medium powder enriched with vitamin C and therefore i think it’s perfect to apply between lipstick layers. Yes really. The trick for applying hours of lipstick is to put it on in layers. First you moisten the lips if necessary, then apply lipliner, 1 layer of lipstick. Then take some of this powder on your fingers and dip it gently on the lipstick. Proceed with adding another layer of lipstick and if necessary lipliner. Your lipstick will now hold all day long, thanks to Besame cosmetics. The powder also shields agains UV rays and you can easily put it in your handbag to freshen up after you ate something or just for looking good all the time along your trip.


This is one of my newest treasures and i’m totally excited about this. Last weekend i was in Cologne and while walking through Douglas store i came across some ARTDECO products. My eyes fell immediately on this beautiful decorated box. It was like being in a toy store. This is by far the most enchanting powder box i have ever seen and it’s part of the 2014 limited edition set called "Jungle Fever".

This light, transparent bronzing powder gives your complexion a natural matte finish. I use it for giving shadows to my cheek. It has a autumny brown color, which i think is perfect for this season.
Depending on the amount applied (be careful not to apply too much), you can adapt the optimal tan effect. SPF-15 protects the skin from damaging UV-Rays and is water resistant. 
Perfect for a glorious Day!

Dita Von Teese also launched her beautiful make up collection at Artdeco. But i don’t have any products about that yet :)

That’s all folks, part 2 will be released later this week.

Then i will talk about more products that you simply will love!
