Beautyscaping Is the New Way to Decorate Your Makeup Table

We buy beauty products because we expect them to be effective or fun to try out. If they also happen to come in attractive packaging, that doesn’t hurt, either. Utilizing the latter is the idea behind the recent design trend known as “beautyscaping.”

While you might have a perfume bottle or two on your vanity, most of your products are likely hidden away in a medicine cabinet, under a sink, or in a drawer. When you beautyscape, you liberate them from bathroom obscurity and use them as décor. A myriad of products—from bath items to makeup and fragrance—can all work as décor, making this trend ultra-versatile.

For example, those who love bath bombs might opt to keep them in a clear glass canister. It’s the perfect way to display your collection, while also adding a pop of color to your bathroom. If you’re more of a bubble bath person, empty your powders or salts into some decorative vases.

And that collection of perfume bottles crowding your vanity? Thrift or buy a new cake stand and display the bottles on top. Don’t think your makeup can’t join the party, either. Acrylic storage pieces allow you to show off your favorite lipsticks, mascara, and eyeshadow palettes.
