Before you started, did your switch have a white wire attached to it? If so, you cannot extend the wiring from there. You'll need another new cable from your light to your switch box, in addition to the new cable you ran from the switch box to the new vanity light. Post back with more information and we can provide more details.

P.S. A little punctuation would really help.

Other than the two wires connected to the switch, are there any other wires in the box. If not, then you still have a switch loop and the information in my first post still applies. If you need more help, tell us exactly what you have done so far, and all the wires and connections you see at your ceiling fixture.
