Julie & I have been working on this project for months & we’re so excited to finally show you.

BACKSTORY: I have known Julie ( also known as @JULESWICK on Instagram– follow her for so much inspo ) since I was like 20. She used to do my makeup when I loved way too much bronzer & a tadpole brow…things have changed- thank God. Julie was a head makeup artist at MAC before she went out on her own as freelance. She’s by far one of the most creative people I have ever encountered. AND SHE JUST LAUNCHED HER NEW BLOG, DEUXALITI, WHICH YOU CAN ALL GO STALK NOW. Anyway when I was in NYC recently I worked with Julie because I had some events & needed makeup. Welllllll…one of the appointments happened to be at her house ( which was just the most chic loft ever- I’m sure you can imagine ) & I saw how she stored her makeup. I WAS FUCKING BLOWN AWAY. It looked JUST like this post but it was super makeup heavy. I asked her if she could come to San Diego to help me do my own JULES WICK MAKEUP INSTALLATION SITUATION & she flew out to San Diego to set it up. Her & her fiancé, Jason Naylor ( who, SURPRISE !!!, is also an artist. Stalk his art at @jasonnaylor ), worked for SEVEN days until like 1 in the morning to set this up. CRAZY. They cared so much about every detail & really tailed the whole installation to my taste.

My vision was to have the installation focus on makeup but REALLY focus on SKIN. Skin is obviously a huge part of my life so it was important to me for the installation to showcase this. I also wanted pops of pink ( I know weird ) so Julie & Jason went to The Container Store & found all these pink office supplies ( you can shop below too ) to incorporate into the installation. I loved the idea of utilizing office supplies in a makeup installation. Like how fun is a pencil holder for beautyBlenders?! Or a pink paper holder for displaying the makeup you’re using? THEY EVEN used a paperclip holder as my facial massager holder- but CUT the holder to perfectly fit my massager. HOW FUN.

Truly Julie thought of every detail. I could not be happier with how it turned out.

( I also need to shout-out The Skinny Confidential reader, Taryn St. Michele, because she made my pink lip print vision come to life. Should I do another giveaway with her & give away this print? Could be fun! You can check out Taryn’s stuff here ).

Everything is displayed from masks to cotton balls to my white blow dryer in a creative way because of Julies. She even did a The Skinny Confidential GIVEAWAY drawer for you guys! Also what I loved is she used the men’s shoe boxes I had & recommended a year ago in the display- so we didn’t waste anything.


To me, this made the whole thing come together. This may sound weird to you. I just love details & this was a detail that SCREAMED chic to me. Like I said, Jules initially showed me her installment in NYC & this was the one detail I was SO fucking excited about. I think every girl should get these clear lipstick caps to display. Do you love?

Jules really paid attention to how she laid out the colors of the lipsticks too which I thought was super creative. The clear makes it easier too for when you’re running late ( ME, ME, ME ). YOU CAN JUST GRAB YOUR COLOR & GO. Also does anyone else find it annoying to have to open the lipstick to see the color? SO!!! With clear lipstick caps you keep it efficient- just how we like it.

An up-close of the situation for you:

Some tips to organize your own makeup installation?


Start with a closet. You can find one at IKEA- we shared info below. And use the closet to create your own custom makeup or skin installation. If you can’t do a closet, do men’s shoe boxes. I did that forever & it worked well. You can find more on that here.


Of course adding a personal detail is so important! Pick a color scheme, add some flair, personalize it to your taste. Like I said we used a lot of pink & black ( WHAT UP TSC ) & put a heavy emphasis on skin.


You want a station to do your makeup. Mine pulls out so I can do IG LIVE’s easily or YouTube videos. Plus it’s great for day-to-day. I can pull it out, leave my favorites on there, & shut it quickly when I leave.


Incorporate pieces that aren’t necessary for makeup. The WHITE LIES jar is something we initially had in the kitchen. But now it’s in my installment. We also featured WOO ( coconut sex lube ), some of my favorite perfumes, & even have a Beauty Blender display. I love to bring contrast to everything I do.

  1. YAAS! I’ve been waiting for this post! LOVE organization. Everything has a place! Where do you keep the little spoon that comes with the Watermelon sleep mask? I never know what to do with those things to keep them sanitary!

  2. I couldn’t wait for this post to come bc i saw it when you did a sneak peak on IG stories!!! WOW!!!! Wow! Amazing, everything is so organized and so perfect! lauryn you are one lucky gal! Amazing!!!! Thank you for sharing, xoxo

  3. Wow! That is an overwhelming amount of makeup! I love how perfectly organized it is.

  4. Love the creativity, wishing I had this in my house. Question….which is your favorite hydrating mask? I had a facial recently and was told my skin is dry and I need to hydrate the skin!!!!!

    My blog: (would love your feedback)

  5. I am trying SO hard to figure out where you got that white tray that fits perfectly around the pink thing that your beauty blenders are sitting on! I’ve read the dimensions of it and can’t find anything that perfectly fits those dimensions!!!

    Regardless, this is so beautiful and I bet you go to bed at night excited to do your makeup at your makeup station in the mornings! I know I would!

    All the love,
    Elle |

    1. Hi!!!!
      Thank you for the excitement and for taking the time to watch the video, & comment! I love that you said “I bet you go to bed excited to wake up and do your makeup!” Best compliment ever! I’m so happy you love it! That little thing the Beauty Blenders are on and the tray is by Poppin. They sell a wide range of their products at The Container Store. The white tray is the mini-or small accessory tray. Here’s a link that I found:

      If not go directly to the
      And search the small accessory tray! hope that helps!!!
      Thank you!!

  6. obsessed! what’s the pink oval shape thing with your beauty blenders? some sort of facial massage?

  7. obsessed with this!! what is the oval pink thing with your beauty blenders? facial massage tool? i’ve been hooked on ice rolling every morning thanks to you!!

  8. Omg I’m dead! This is amazing!!! I need this in my life! Sooo amazing, like that is my dream come true right there! I’d been waitinggggg to see this ????

  9. This was an awesome post. kindof delayed but i tried the glo skin beauty brightening serum after you posted it here, and its been over a month and the first time i have actually really noticed a difference with a skin care product. i am now ordering a ton of stuff from them. feels more clinical than what i typically buy at sephora! thanks for the amazing recommendation.

  10. OK, first off, OBSESSED!!! Jules did a great job and I love how she made this installment totally you!
    Question: What width are each of the cabinets?? There’s so many sizes from ikea!

    THANK YOU!!!

    1. Hey Mollie!!!
      So glad you like it!! Thank you SO much for the support & for noticing all the details added to make it super personalized for Lauryn! I’m happy that stood out to you!

      The Closet System is called the PAX.
      As you mentioned the PAX comes in many sizes. I know at first glance it’s slightly overwhelming, LOL. But remember, the reason I chose the PAX was because of the variety in sizes and heights. Im all about doing what works for you & making it your own! I want people to feel inspired by Lauryn’s and use it as a jumping off place but of course think of how you can customize things to works for you and your home.

      For Lauryn’s we used 2 PAX wardrobes and pushed them together.
      We decided NOT to put doors on Lauryn’s since we wanted it to be more of a display. (I have glossy white doors on mine. I live in an open plan loft so I need the doors).

      What we used:
      -go to and search PAX
      -you’re looking for the one that’s aprox $155
      – it’s quite narrow looking online
      -dimensions: 19 5/8×23 5/8×79 1/4”
      -Then you’ll add all the bits you want to go in.
      *NOTE: there are two different height options for the PAX so be aware of which one you want & which one you are getting.

      Hope this helps! Feel free to reach out on Instagram if you have any questions. I’m happy to help w/ anything!!

      Good luck and keep us posted if you end up creating your own! Lauryn and I have to see it!! XO!!


  11. What is the acrylic organizer that you all used to put your round face masks in? The glam glo, peter thomas roth, etc? And the one that all your oils are in?! Thank you!
