I reeeeeally needed somewhere to put my makeup brushes other than just leaving them lying around in my makeup bag. But I had a dilemma as I don't have an awful lot of money at the minute (I just spent my last few pennies on a new foundation - post coming up in the next few days). So I had to get creative with what I had in my room. I like to have candles in my room and I realised that one of the old pots they come in would be perfect for the amount of brushes I have. So I cleaned it out and all they fit (yaaaaay). The pot I used was from one of Airwicks (I think) colour changing candles. It's saved me from going out and buying a pot/holder specifically for brushes, and who doesn't love to save a bit of money?
An option for those of you with a larger brush set is using an old big mug. As you can see my old starbucks one is a pretty good option too, but for me it's a little big for my smaller brush collection so I'll stick to my candle pot for now.
I hope you like them. What creative ways have you used to store your makeup stash?
