I've been looking for a new way to store my brushes and this is what I have come up with.
First, this was the criteria I was basing my choices on:
* Something transparent
* Something that could stand on my dressing table
* Something with a lid
Answer, an old school cookie jar!
The reason I wanted something with a lid is because I've noticed that my brushes get pretty dusty sitting out in the open all day long. I guess it never really bothered me until I started using the Chanel Bronze Universal. It's a cream bronzer that attracts all kind of brush hairs and brush dust. Ick.
I bought this glass jar from Crate&Barrel. I'm told that you can also find it at Williams-Sonoma but I wasn't so lucky. They come in various sizes (half a gallon, one gallon, even two gallons). I bought the gallon size and it was only $13.95 (plus tax, of course).
I used stuffing pellets (like the kind you find in beanie babies) from a craft store to hold the brushes. I used to use vase fillers but I found that they scratched the brush handles over time.
How do you store your brushes? xx
