Decorating your bathroom vanities and rearranging beauty products for Insta-worthy aesthetic have seriously become one of our favorite pastimes now (given that we're spending so many hours at home). That's why we're not letting any 5-star Korean skincare products out of our sights because they are the real heroes behind every #VanityGoal instagram photo. And for those whose Instagram bookmark collection is filled with bathroom vanities and bathroom shelfies, here are some tips and Insta-worthy inspo on how to make your spring vanity the best-looking one on the feed!

Want to get your followers to jump on the bandwagon for your favorite K-Beauty brands too? Easy, just post a “brand-wagon” vanity photo featuring all your 5-star picks like a proud skincare junkie! We love seeing people show off their loyalty to the brands they love, and the Insta-worthy way to do it is to feature the best-in-class skin care products from your staple brands or go for a specific line-up to make your vanity look more organised and composed. Bonus point? Throw in a skincare set like the iUNIK x STYLEVANA Mini Serum Set into the mix to make it look more drool-worthy.

Imagine posting this vanity shot on #SelfcareSunday with the iconic caption “Selfcare isn't selfish.” Your followers would LOVE it. The Insta-worthy way of achieving the perfect #SelfcareSunday bathroom vanity photo to feature tubs of your favorite eye care and lip care essentials. Think a cute selfcare corner, starring your cult-favorite eye cream like the heimish Marine Care Eye cream + a best-selling lip mask like the LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask.

4. Tower Thursday

A #TowerThursday vanity photo has been getting all the hype on Instagram because it’s one of the very few beauty challenges that are here to stay. We have to admit it’s quite a fun and creative way to show off your skin care products (and jenga skills, obviously). Now it's not limited to tub products either, you can style your tower with empty boxes and packaging that come with your K-Beauty finds to create a stair-like display and stack your proud collection.

5. Golden Hour

The moment when you want to show the world you strike gold with your last beauty haul is through a golden vanity photo. Get the perfect monochrome set-up with everything gold as your theme color. Our recent golden picks are the beloved RiRe Premium White Pure Goat Milk Serum and the super buzzworthy SKINFOOD Royal Honey Propolis Enrich Essence.

Sidenote: The key to achieving the perfect monochrome vanity shot is to sort out your skin care products by ingredients, which are usually dictated and represented by a certain color theme, like blue for Hyaluronic Acid , green for Green Tea or Centella Asiatica, or orange for Vitamin C etc.

RiRe - Luxe Eye Lash Essence
RiRe - Fork Eyebrow Tint

SKINFOOD - Royal Honey 100 Hour Moisture Cream

6. The Skinamalist Aesthetic

You can tell if a person is a “skinamalist” (aka a minimalist who’s also a skin care lover) just by looking at their bathroom vanity—clean, simple, and minimal. So all you have to do is just to keep your Korean skincare routine to the minimum with only the basics—cleanser, serum, moisturizer, and mask. Choosing clean beauty brands like BE PLAIN, iUNIK and Sioris is also a nice touch to perfecting the “skinamalist” aesthetic, along with a simple glow-booster like Logically, Skin's Cell Alarming Logic Aquatide Resurface Serum.

Recreate this vanity with:
BE PLAIN - Cicaful Ampoule
IUNIK - Propolis Vitamin Sleeping Mask
Logically, Skin - Cell Alarming Logic Aquatide Resurface Serum
