Storing your makeup brushes

For a while now, I have just been throwing my makeup brushes into a bag and hadn't realized how much damage it was causing my brushes. I thought I would share with you how I store my brushes.

The Marilyn Monroe boxes were a gift and I store my brushes in the last box. I keep my everyday makeup in the middle box and small things (cotton buds, cotton pads, swabs, etc) in the top box. I usually keep the perfume I am currently using on top so that it is convenient. On the right, you can see that I try and keep my brushes neat so that they do not lose their shape.

I found these ideas online and I thought they were clever!

Using a office spindle to store brushes and other small things (source

Using old jars and filling them with beads (source)

  5. I like your last idea of storing them! Also instead of beads you could use coffee beans; it looks good and smells delicious :)
    I really like your blog! I would love it if we followed each other, let me know :)

  6. I LOVE your boxes, they are super gorgeous! xx

  7. Those boxes are too cute!! I've been seeing that Marc Jacobs perfume everywhere lately!

    I store mine in little vases or mini mason jars...and sometimes I put some rice or coffee beans at the bottom, just so the short brushes will be tall enough.
