make-up brushes look great in pretty pen pots like the al­pha­bet ones at pen­treath & Hall, £40.

the best dress­ing ta­bles are an­tique or vin­tage.

Go to 1st Dibs and you’ll find a trea­sure trove of won­der­ful de­signs with plenty of draw­ers. or look at Habi­tat’s emil, £595, or ada, £349, at made.com

around a dress­ing ta­ble, you need good task light­ing, with side lights ei­ther side of a large mir­ror, to pro­vide even light to both sides of your face. these can be dec­o­ra­tive pen­dants, or if you want to go all-out Hol­ly­wood glam, then frame your mir­ror with show­time bulbs (you can’t beat musik, £18, Ikea).

When it comes to light­ing, the best po­si­tion for a dress­ing ta­ble is un­der a win­dow, but if this doesn’t work in your bed­room, a top trick is to move your dress­ing ta­ble to the wall op­po­site the win­dow and use a big mir­ror to re­flect the nat­u­ral light.
