Good morning my loves and happy St. Patrick’s Day!
So today I was trying to figure out what tips and tricks i can give out to all my beauts on Instagram for my TOP TIP TUESDAY! but i just couldn’t think of anything at the top of my head, so i swirled around in my beauty box to see if I could find something interesting to share with you all. While i was rummaging through it all i realized how all my eyeshadows are unorganized and all over the place. So while i sat there contemplating over how I should keep all my shadows in one place like i do with my brushes, it hit me! Why not just talk about how I keep my brushes organized! It’s something I definitely appreciate when it comes to doing my makeup. I just wished someone had told me about this allot sooner.
But before I go on, I have to admit something to y’all… i have an excessive amount of brushes, its ridiculous. I may be exaggerating a bit but the bottom line is that I have way more brushes than I need (according to some people. I swear I use them all). Being that I have a nice sized collection of brushes I obviously needed a way to store them in a way that would make them easily accessible. But just to make it easier ill be using a handful of my brushes to demonstrate how I like to store them.
Months ago I saw a post on Pinterest on how to maximize your storage space for little things using Ikea items and immediately stored it in the “things to do when I’ve got time” file. I never thought anything of it at the time but when it came time for me to make some makeup brush holders I knew exactly where to turn.
I would suggest you check your local craft store or dollar store ( or even £1 store like Pound Land, for those of you in England) for supplies for this craft and I’d imagine that you could make it for much cheaper than I did.
Anyway, first you’ll need to determine how large of a container you need. The container posted above is what I use for my face brushes and eye brushes. But i would reccomend you use something a little larger when it comes to storing face brushes, especially if you have wider ended brushes like my Real Techniques brushes. Those could be a little tricky to store, so i would defiantly recommend getting a slightly larger vase or bowl.
I also got the sand which I would use to keep my brushes in place from Ikea. You can find these in the vase and flower department. they’re pretty cool, and they come in various colors.
