After: Makeup at the Ready
A foldaway vanity holds (and hides) cosmetics and a battery-powered lighted mirror without taking up floor space. When closed, the unit (sold as a laptop desk) is just eight inches deep and looks neat and crisp. Jewelry is draped above; scarves hang on a clever mod rack. Even sunglasses have a home.
