You might’ve heard that you should be wash your makeup brushes regularly (click here to find out how). Some say every other day, others say every week. I personally try to aim for once a week but there are times that it doesn’t happen.
That’s why I made my own daily brush spray, that I can use each day on my makeup brushes by simply spritzing it on the brush bristles and letting it air dry. I’ve seen a lot of high-end, ‘professional’ versions out there, so consider using this DIY recipe before spending your hard earned cash.
I’ve always wanted a nice way to display my make up brushes that is accessible and cute. I noticed a brass silver coated cup from a vintage store and was instantly inspired to use it a brush holder! The following is just a quick explanation for how you can create your own makeup brush holder 🙂
Find A Container
It can be whatever you like, but the base should have enough diameter in order to fit all your brushes! You can use anything: an old candle holder, drinking glass, etc..the list is endless..
Find A Filler
Craft stores have vase fillers, but I don’t know where one is in my area so I used beads used for fish tanks as you can see in the image below.
Fill It Up!
Pour the beads, fillers, etc into the container so it is a comfortable level for you to access the brushes easily (this will vary depending on the container and the look you are going for). I filled mine up just over half way.
Voila! There you have it 🙂 A customised, simple yet gorgeous makeup brush holder! Wee 🙂 Xx
