How Do You Store Your Makeup Brushes?

Hey ladies, my name’s P!nky and I blog
Nikki is my girl and one of my daily reads.
I love her humor and wit and 
her fitness knowledge.
I’m 100000% jealous she is on vacay, but she 
works hard for her money,
so I guess she deserves it huh?
Today, I’m going to share a super easy
and fun DIY project. 
The craft gene kind of skipped me,
so TRUST me when I say
ANYONE could attempt this project. 
I’m a huge makeup girl. 
I love wearing it
and buying. 
I used to be THAT girl
that NEVER used brushes to apply,
I just used my finger.
YEAH, I know, GROSS!
But my mom gave me some fabulous brushes
a few years ago and I’ve loved them. 

I used to keep them in their roll up case,
but that became such a hassle to get in 
and out of, so I searched for a cute
and easy way to display them. 
I found this picture on Pinterest and 

used it as inspiration.

FYI: If you DO NOT enjoy the smell of coffee at all
The delicious aroma of coffee will permeate
whatever space you place your brush holder.

Things you will need:
*Vase or square container of whatever size you want (mine was from a flower arrangement)
*Bag of WHOLE coffee beans (I show two because I didn’t know how much I would need)
*Your pretty make up brushes
*Yourself 🙂

Step 1: Find all of your ‘ingredients’

Step 2: Pour coffee beans into container

Step 4: Place brushes handle down into the coffee beans.

Step 5: Determine the height for each brush

Step 6: Tah-Dah you are done! Display in your bathroom!

 You could put a pretty ribbon or decorate the vase if you want. 
I have a pretty busy bathroom so I thought any other form 
of decoration would be too busy.

If you aren’t a coffee person but like the idea, check out this post
by Belle in the City, Miss Sarah Elizabeth.
Same idea but with clear beads.

I hope you found this informative and fun!
Let me know your thoughts and come visit me!

xoxo lovely ladies!

  Hugs, Nikki

    Oh I love this! My brushes are squished into my makeup bag now. This would be much easier to access them and I’d get to enjoy the smell of coffee. Win, win!
