Buying Guide

The humble makeup vanity table is turning from a luxury to a necessity. And rightly so. There’s no better place where a girl can unwind each morning as she goes about her toilette. She can waltz blindfolded to the table and get hands-on access to her necessities on a busy morning. And when she’s away, it keeps her expensive jewelry safe from prying eyes.

But with options ranging from petite corner tables in tiny nooks to elaborate walk-in vanities in makeshift garage-turned-makeup rooms, shopping for the perfect makeup vanity table isn’t a cakewalk. Here are some things to keep in mind.

Micro apartments and dorm rooms can do without shin-bruising monstrosities and opt for functional and practical makeup vanity tables. Folding storage, mirror-cabinets, minimal drawers and seating that tucks in underneath can save space while still offering you all the functionality and storage you seek.

There’s a huge variation in the price range of vanity tables. Usually, the more feature-rich they are, the pricier they can be. A tri-fold mirror makeup table, for example, can make you poorer by $1000 or more. Meanwhile, a minimalist modern table can be bought for less than $200.

If you are shopping on a tight budget, you can opt for bare minimum makeup tables that have a small mirror and limited storage.

Remember, unless you have an endless supply of makeup, even one or two drawers can suffice. That five-drawer modern make up table might seem alluring. But in the long run, it might just turn out to be an expensive overkill with excessive, unused storage space.

Hardwood is the commonest material used for modern makeup tables. These tables look stunning and can sustain the wear and tear that comes with regular use. The only possible niggle is that placing them near the window or in a bathroom might limit their lifespan. Also, these will be heavy on your pocket.

Plastic and melamine over MDF board are budget-friendly choices that are not as durable as hardwood. But if you only spend a small amount of time applying makeup or doing your hair, you might as well save a few hundred bucks and opt for something like this.

The size of the mirror on your makeup vanity table will depend on whether you use it for fine-tuning details up-close, or for tasks like doing your hair that require a full-sized mirror. The mirror is not the be-all, end-all though. Some tables have a removable mirror that can be swapped with something fancier, like a Hollywood vanity mirror, for instance.

As we implied earlier, if you use the table for fine-tuning the details, then you absolutely need a source of illumination. Warm LED bulbs mimic natural sunlight and allow you to achieve the perfect look that retains your natural skin tone.
