Pink & Black Vanity Room

via Facebook – Vanity Girl Hollywood @Beautifly Samantha

This Real Vanity Girl waited until her white office chair came in to share her photo with us via Facebook.  I love the pink walls and her whimsical use of Betty Boop in the space. I often see Marilyn Monroe and Hello Kitty, but I think this is the first time I saw Betty!

Note her super organized plastic totes on her book shelves and a magnifying mirror on the desk.  That’s great for “up-close” work like lashes and liner.

Flashback Friday: How to Become a YouTube Makeup Guru


Real Vanity Girl: You Tube Guru Stephanie L. | My Vanity World.

A lot of people ask me how you become a Beauty Blogger or YouTube Guru and I found this interview I did with one of my faves – SMLx0 about a year ago, and I thought I’d share it.

I have loved watching her journey and we’re honored to be a part of her in-home studio.

More Later!

A supermom builds a dream vanity room for her girls …

Vanity Girl Hollywood via Facebook

OMG.  Are you dying?  I just saw this post on Facebook and I am IN LOVE.  This supermom in Pennsylvania built this for her girls — the pink walls, the black and white floor, the Broadway desks … I’m working on getting more details about it – but I just couldn’t wait to share it!

It reminds me a little bit of this Vanity Room, that another supermom built for her three daughters on a farm in West Virginia.

It makes me so happy – the thought of these little girls having a dream vanity room to talk about about their hopes and dreams, and put on their makeup together.  It’s a literally a space where family bonds are formed.

Thanks for sharing @Laurie!  I’m honestly SO HONORED to be a part of the lives of everyday girls and women creating their own Hollywood backstage moments.

UsWeekly:: How Kim Kardashian Adds Glam to Her Boudoir


This article came out shortly after two of our lighted Black Broadway desks were set up in the VIP makeup room in DASH NYC. Did you catch the clip on the January 22, 2012 episode of Kourtney and Kim take New York when Kim is chatting with gal pal and celebrity MUA Joyce Bonnelli in front of the vanity? I was en route home from a long weekend at Sundance, and literally learned about the segment airing from my Facebook and Twitter audience … whom I adore. Grazie Vanity Girls! 

Millionaire Matchmaker and some of her own beauty secrets …

Patti Stanger can’t dish out the advice to her girls without taking some of her own, right?  We’ve seen her slim down (Sensa!), change up her style and do other things to stay competitive in this ultra-competitive market known as Hollywood.  Well, for her birthday – her makeup artist decided to get her a Black Starlet vanity of her own to shed just the right light on the Millionaire Matchmaker herself … 

Here’s a pic of us at STK in WeHo, where she took a quick break during a super busy day to support a fellow female Hollywood entrepreneur!

Look what Dance Show we’re talking to about some Backstage Vanities


I love this show. I love love love this show. Watching the stars go from dancing newbies to looking like pros is always an exciting transformation (remember Rob Kardashian last season?)

We’re excited that we got a call from their team Friday who may be interested in getting a couple of Broadway Desks to help get one of their gorgeous stars camera ready ….

P.S.  Those are the same desks that DASH NYC has in their VIP makeup area, wonder if DWTS is also thinking about black?

Real Vanity Girl: You Tube Guru Stephanie L.


This blue-eyed beauty out of New York created this video for her Black Lighted Vanity. Stay tuned for her “Real Vanity Girl Feature” and get to know her a little better. Apparently, we aren’t the only one watching because we got an email from Australia from someone who saw her video and wanted a Black Starlet like hers immediately. xo

Update – here’s our Real Vanity Girl interview with Stephanie L aka SMLx0 on YouTube.  Please excuse the different fonts.  This new blog format is a work in a progress .. 


How did you get started on YouTube?


I first started making videos about 2 years ago. I currently have around 75,000 subscribers. It’s amazing! I love it.  I got inspired to make videos because I loved watching them. It looked like fun so I figured I’d give it a try!


What advice would you give newbie YouTuber’s?


My advice to aspiring YouTuber’s would be to always be genuine, and try to interact with your viewers as much as you can. When you reply to comments or Tweets it shows that you care. I’ve been lucky enough to develop friendships with a lot of girls on YouTube. That’s probably my favorite aspect of it. 


How did you learn to make the type of videos that gets a subscriborship (is that a word)?  like yours?


I’m pretty much just self taught, and of course YouTube has taught me a lot as well. There’s so many talented people on YouTube!

What made you decide to invest in a vanity at this time? 

It was the perfect vanity for me because of the lighting! Lighting is so important for doing makeup as well as filming videos for my YouTube channel.

Why our vanities?


Vanity Girl vanities are unlike any vanities I’ve ever seen. They are beautiful and so glamourous. You can’t help but feel like a movie star every time you sit down to do your makeup. It makes it that much more fun. On top of being nice to look at, it’s also really sturdy and functional. I love that you can adjust the brightness of the lights so easily.


How did you hear about us? 


I first heard about them on YouTube. Kandee Johnson, one of my faves, did a video on one of the mirrors and ever since then I fell in love.


What beauty products are you loving right now?


I recently did a video on my must haves.. I have so many! But a few of my top favorites are Mac’s Mineralize Skinfinish Natural.. always makes you look flawless! (NOTE:  THIS IS A FAVORITE OF CELEBRITY MUA @JPBEAUTY TOO); Nars Casino Bronzer because I love having that “sun-kissed glow”. Ardell False Lashes (NOTE:  ME TOO!) , the Urban Decay Naked palettes and Bonnebell Liplites in Strawberry Parfait. It’s SO cheap and the perfect baby pink gloss that anyone can afford.


Who is your favorite Vanity Girl?
I’d have to go with Marilyn Monroe.. She’s the epitome of Hollywood glamour!


What do you think makes someone beautiful, and what physical feature do you get complimented on the most?


In my opinion, beauty definitely comes from within. I think I have a great heart and care a lot about others. Looks will only get you so far in life. If you come across as caring, then it will only make you that much more beautiful. As far as appearance goes, my most complimented feature is my eyes. They’re blue but they can look gray or green depending on what I wear.


And her last words to me … 


Last but not least, thank you Maxine for being so kind! I admire your work ethic and hope to have my own business someday as well!


Thank you 🙂   Can’t wait to see what beauty biz you end up launching xoxo
