Keeping your makeup brushes neat and clean may be annoying if you do not have a professional cosmetic brush set case, and these types of cases cost not less than 50 bucks. If you do not plan to travel often and to have your entre set of brushes with you, investing in a professional travel makeup case is unnecessary financial cost. If you are looking for a substitute that costs significantly less, and not to mention looks great, browse no more: try to make a makeup brush holder by yourself.

Step 1 tutorial on how to make a make-up brush holder

The 1st step in the process of creating your own makeup brush holder will be to find an old (but clean) plastic box or small glass jar with clean edges (no lid required) that is wide enough to fit all of the make-up brushes you have. Go in your kitchen or your storage place, there ought to be some containers which you can use as brush case. If your quest leaves you empty-handed, then there is always the possibility of some old pencil holder laying somewhere in your old room that you can use as a makeup brush box. It will be great if the case is square-shaped, because this way the brushes will have more space to be separated from each other. Purchase some small beads, artificial gems, decorative sand or vase filler, fill the holder partway and set the brushes inside. This action helps your brushes stand straight.

Next phase, decoration. If you would like your makeup brush holder to have an beautiful appeal, then you simply cannot just leave the old box looking unpleasant looking. Acquire some long beautiful ribbon and encircle the brush holder with it. Leave enough length so its possible to tie a bow. If this is hard for you, you may simply glue the ribbon first and then glue on the bow independently. When you apply glue, make sure to press the ribbon firm on the box so it will stick appropriately and it will stay on its place. You will not want your decorative center piece to fall out within couple of days. The ribbon is likely to be at the same color as the brush handles, as this will give the brush holder its finishing touch. In case that the box is so seriously unattractive that clean soapy water as well as an elegant ribbon are unable to have an impact on looking decent, you can paint it in your favorite colour, add some glitters, charming beads and crystals. This should be enough to cover the box and make it look beautiful. However, when you do the decoration part, ensure that you don’t overdo it, since you do not want your makeup brush container to appear like a tacky Xmas tree.

The final phase should be the cleaning and maintenance of the make-up brushes before they go inside your newmakeup brush holder. Clean every single make up brush under lukewarm running water. Apply some gentle baby shampoo on the bristles and run your fingers through the hairs of the bristle. Take them back under the running water until the water that runs from the brushes is clear and clean. Then leave the brushes to be air-dried. When they are complete dried up, place them inside the brush holder and be happy with your little piece of art.
