Storing Make Up Brushes


Recently I saw a great post in a series on organizing tips. It is from a super dooper blog called Deliciously Organized. Really worth checking out !

This tip was for Storing Make Up Brushes by adding sand to the container to make them stand up !

via Deliciously Organized: Storing Various Sizes of Makeup Brushes.

It immediately caught my eye as it reminded me a lot of my own brush collection on my countertop.

And I could relate to the problem they were describing – having them all on top of each other !

I loved the idea and tonight was the night I decided to take a little inspiration from them…..

So, I pulled the brushes aside…..Had a good look at them – mmmm….OVERCROWDED for sure !

But before I pulled over the sand… I thought of adding a little twist to it!

Instead of SAND, I added AROMATIC BATH ROCKS !!

Not only are my brushes now all standing up,  ready for action … it also smells delicious right under my nose while I do my make – up!

And the whole tray is now much happier…..

Thank you Deliciously Organized for the great tip !!!

Do you have great tips for organizing make-up?

    MMMmmmm….I like the idea! And the look. Sometimes I know for sure we’re family. Sometimes I wonder – I only have two make-up brushes and I don’t use it. Any other ideas of things I can stick into nice smelling bath salt?Have lots of that 🙂

    Great idea. I was not liking the sand. Going to try that one as soon as I’m in my house. 😉

    Okay, that’s fabulous (and several of those brushes look familiar – hi fellow, MAC lover!). I have my makeup brushes in a drawer, and I hate it – I’m going to have to give this a try!!
