Dressing Table Tour

So I finally have a proper dressing table in my room! The space I wanted to fit it in was pretty small so finding one that would work but my Mum found this one in Argos and it is perfect. It is called Capella Dressing Table and I managed to get it when it was on offer.  Building it wasn't the easiest flat pack i've done but i'm very happy with how it looks so I thought I would show you what I store in/on it.
The desk did come with a mirror but I preferred it without because it would have block some of the light. The mirror is a No7 Illuminated Make-Up Mirror which I got in the sale at Christmas. It is perfect and on the other size it has a X5 magnification perfect for doing your brows! The smaller brush holder I have eye brushes in and it's is just a tooth brush holder from Sainsbury's. My face brush holder is a plant pot from Ikea, I also have an Nspa Candle, a The Body Shop room spray which smells amazing and the mint notebooks are from the Martha Stewart collection at Staples. I also keep my Caudalie Beauty Elixir on my desk to spray off after doing my make-up.
I have my Muji drawers in the corner with some random make-up bits which I either use everyday or are planning on reviewing. I also keep all my creams shadows in them because again I use this most days. On top is a Acrylic Make-Up Organiser from Amazon which has some of my favourite lipsticks in and I also have cotton buds and pads in it.
The desk also comes with a decent sized draw which is perfect for hiding away my daily products. I've used old beauty boxes to separate everything. On the far left I have things I use before bed, so lip balms, hand cream, allergy tablets and other bits. On the far right I have my hair brush and some wipes as well as my sunglasses. Behind everything I have spare cotton pads.
In the middle I have my everyday make-up an my morning and evening skincare products. I tend to swap out bits especially in the make-up box but it is handy to have my go to face on hand if i'm in a rush. 

So that's my new dressing table as I said i'm very happy with it and feel a lot more organised now. 

What kind of things do you keep on your dressing table?
