Curate Your Vanity Like a Beauty Editor

Beauty editors have vanities even celebrities covet and now you can too. These 5 steps will show you how to curate your own crave-worthy vanity.

Step 1

Take inventory. Beauty editors are keenly aware of what's already on the market and where there's room for better products. Knowing what you have will help you to know what you need.
