The last time I was in NYC (it was too long ago if you ask me), I bought this vintage perfume tray at the Brooklyn flea market. It's paisley and bright and perfect! At first, I used it for the obvious: Perfume. But that felt a little boring. I recently repurposed it as a catch-all dish next to my bathroom sink. It holds a little bit of everything. My basic makeup (what I wear on the weekends), jewelry, a pair of tweezers, and an everyday face lotion. Instead of digging through my drawers for the essentials, I have them all right here!
[all the essentials: face cream, mascara, concealer, brush, tweezers, blush/bronzer, favorite necklace]
