Holding Makeup Brushes

Keep makeup brushes together and within easy reach by organizing them in a pretty little cup…

…or maybe a re-purposed glass jar or vase…

…and if you have brushes that are shorter than your container and consequently are inconvenient to grab, take a cue from the people over at the Makeup Box Shop (photo above right) and Carlee of Deliciously Organized (photo below) and fill a portion of your container with little beads or sand (or marbles). Doing so will help brushes stay upright, in place and optimally accessible.  How do you like organizing your brushes?

    I totally need to rearrange my brushes! Very cute idea

  9. I keep my only two brushes in my make-up box. I don’t like make-up bags because they get easily dirty. This idea, however is quite interesting, i like best the last two.
