You need a space that’s your own, an area that makes you instantly happy when you see it, with all the tools and products you need to create a masterpiece. Sound like heaven? Here’s some inspo to get you started on your make-up station…


Metallics and particularly rose gold are very on trend, so it’s easy at the moment to find storage containers, lamps, candles and even beauty products in this colour.

For make-up brush and product storage, these Metal Tealight Candle Holders from Kmart (in the pic above) are only $5 a pop! Another cute idea for decorating your space is to put your favourite beauty quote in a rose gold frame.
