Do you have makeup brushes lying around getting dirty or smushed because they’re trapped in some drawer? There’s a better way to store your makeup brushes, and it doesn’t cost much. Here’s how to organize makeup brushes on a budget.
How to Organize Makeup Brushes on a Budget
All you’ll need is a cup or glass that’s shorter than the brushes and some rice (you can also use actual vase filler, but that can get expensive and you might already have a bag of rice lying around at home anyway :)).
I’m using a plastic cup that I got at Target a long time ago. I also painted it pink, though the paint is chipping a little now. If I wasn’t using this cup, I would just grab one of the mason jars in my cabinet.
I don’t have a ton of makeup brushes because I’m trying to maintain a minimalistic makeup collection, so if I just put the brushes in the cup directly, they just fall to one side and most of the cup is empty.
BUT if I fill the bottom of the cup with a few inches of rice first, then I can stick the brushes into it and they stand up perfectly! Hooray!
If you have any pretty glass beads or vase filler or little stones, you can use that too, but rice is just an inexpensive and readily available option.
