The make-up brush holder is made from a recycled glass candle jar. Make sure you wash away any wax residue. Add rocks and VOILA- you have your own brush holder. What I like about this holder is that it does not take up a lot of room on my make-up table. Also, by standing the brushes upward, the brushes have time to completely dry before my next use. I've noticed my brushes start to smell if I leave it in my makeup bag for too long. So this is a perfect fix.
I also made my own cotton & Q-tip holder.
This cotton and Q-tip jar is actually a small food storage jar I bought from Ikea a while back. It comes in a pack of two for just under $3. What I like about this is that it keeps my cotton and Q-tips clean and dust free. I love that the jar is made out of glass thus giving it a more clean, but expensive look.
So what do you think?
