We'll admit it. One of the best perks of being a beauty editor is having access to the best beauty products in the biz. Want to see what we stockpile our beauty vanities with? Here's an inside look.
Tatiana Bido, Special Projects Editor
"I use a bookcase and large floor mirror as my vanity because I like standing really close to the mirror when I put my makeup on. I keep my daily favorites front and center, like my Ponds Dry Skin Cream, Patchology FlashPatch Eye Gels and Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation. I collect MAC lipsticks like people collect coins or stamps, so I like to see them out in the open. Makeup palettes are must-haves, and right now I'm alternating between the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani and Anastasia Beverly Hills Self Made eye shadow palettes. I keep my brushes, products and palettes in acrylic organizers so they're all in one place and I store the products that I don’t use as often in large boxes below. Every so often I’ll go through my boxes to bring something stored away back into rotation. I also keep a handful of my favorite records handy so I can have a little pre-party while I’m getting ready for a big night out."
