I've gotten a few comments and questions asking me all kinds of questions about my makeup brushes and how I store and clean them. Instead of a super long photo heavy post, I decided to break it down into a few posts. :)
I figured I would start with how I store my brushes. I purchased two Sephora Collection Makeup Brush Box - Large - Black Item # 1116045 (sorry y'all I can't find it on Sephora's website anymore. I purchased them in 2009). I recently saw one very similar at Wal-Mart and I'm sure its the same thing and costs 50% less than what I paid for these from Sephora.
I used to use brush rolls but I grew out of them. I only use them for travel.
This is what they look like. I have two holders so thats six compartments. The insides are lined with black velvet which gets a little dirty (from the brushes and dust sometimes. I just wipe them with a wet on when I want to clean them.
^Not sure why the pics came out so wonky (>_<)
All Most of my brushes together in their homes :) I have some others in random places and travel brushes put away that I don't reach for on a regular basis.
I organize my brushes in categories that make sense to me.
1. ~ Fan Brushes, Eyeliner Brushes (angled etc), Lip Brushes
2. ~ Eye Blending & Smudging, & Crease Brushes, Detail Brushes
3. ~ Eyeshadow Lid Brushes (fluffy, small, regular) & my Eyebrow Comb
4. ~Fluffy Face Brushes
5. ~ Blush Brushes
6. ~ Airbrushes, Stippling Brushes, Concealer Brushes (a random black eyeliner that didn't fit where it belongs because its too long and random nail file)
Oh stop judging me!!! I know I need to clean my brushes. It's not brush bath night ;)
How do you store your brushes? Share :)
