DIY| Makeup Brush Holder

My usual makeup brush storage is an old black bag that I just toss all my brushes into. Face brushes, eye brushes, and lip brushes – all in the same bag. I didn't take the best care of them or even wash them regularly and to be honest I've had some of the brushes for over 5 years [Kinda gross, I know!].

So I made a decision to do better this year and I purchased a new set of brushes by Shany Cosmetics. Instead of tossing them in a bag I wanted to place them on the counter in the bathroom so I decided to make some fun brush holders with a little inspiration from Pinterest of course! 

This DIY was so easy and I love the way that it turned out!

A See-thru Glass Bowl, Jar, or Vase with a wide opening – I got mine from the Dollar Tree
Makeup Brushes
Glass Marbles - I purchased 2 bags from Dollar Tree 
Glue Gun - Purchased at Target

Place small dime sized amount of hot glue onto the back of glass marble
Place marble(s) in desired pattern on glass jar (vase)
Let dry overnight
Place remaining marbles in jar, add makeup brushes.

What do you think?

  2. This looks fabulous!!!!!

  3. You know what Marissa! I saw the same thing. It was a big glass filled with marbles or such and you place your brushes in it. I have mine in a glass like container. Girllllll! Let your brushes BREATHE!!! HaHaHa Yeah, definitely wash them or they'll hold bacteria and break out your face. Good for you in making that change.

  4. Stopping by from #FundayMonday - I love my Shany brushes and I love having them in pretty holders too! You'll be so glad you made the change, they're easier to use and I always remember to clean them because you can see when they're getting grungy (I know you're supposed to do it at least once a week but I usually don't bother until they get muddy!) I like the colors you picked for your holders, they really make your brushes pop!

  5. so simple and pretty - i love turquoise!

  6. Thank you! I love peacocks and butterflies :)

  7. Thanks so much for stopping by! I am really liking my new brushes too and usually clean them when they look grungy. I'd never be able to keep up with once a week! :)

  8. Thanks Kim, sometimes I try to a responsible adult! LOL

  9. Thanks so much for stopping by! I can't believe how easy this was to make and it adds a little pizzazz to the bathroom counter! Plus the colors aren't too girly so the hubby approves! :)
