While many of us lustfully pin images of pristine vanities and countertops stocked with Byredo perfume bottles and wiped-clean Diptyque candle jars holding clean makeup brushes, our realities are rarely so picture-perfect. If you feel a pang of jealousy when you see a #shelfie post of your dream vanity, then compare it to your endless piles of hair elastics and half used tubes of mascara and lip balm, let us be the first to say: You're not alone.
We've rounded up the most mesmerizing makeup flat-lays and idealistic mirror shelves on Instagram — then paired them with the exact storage product you should buy to make your reality a little closer to the one you love most. But the best part? This picturesque trend will actually help you to get out the door faster and cut down on daily cleaning and stress. Win-win! Our favorites, ahead.
