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..

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.
