DIY - Makeup Brush Holder

I don't know about you ladies, but I have gone crazy trying to find a way to organize my makeup brushes. Keeping them in a makeup brush bag got messy and keeping them in a drawer was just as bad. I wanted to keep them on the counter but in a regular container they just looked sloppy and fell to one side.

Enter my friend Pinterest and these two pins - a beachy idea (love it but it would be kind of messy) and this oneSince I am very experienced adding rocks to things...one quick trip to Ikea and my problem was solved.

This might be one of the easiest DIYs ever! Seriously...a two year old can do it and would probably have more fun doing it then you! :)

Here's what you need:

Glass Container - any size will do; just make sure it is the right depth to hold brushes and not too deep so that they can't come out of the top.

Rocks  - I bought these at Ikea but they have them at the dollar store. Or you can go outside and get your own...just wash/boil them first. I am a germ-phobe.

Brushes - If you can't tell, I love MAC brushes. I would not survive without my 266 angle brush (fourth from left).

That's it.

Pour the rocks into the container and put your brushes in.

See, not so hard and how cute does it look??

With some of my fave products... YSL Faux Cils Mascara // Lancome Hypnose Doll Lash Mascara // 

We actually filled up two more containers and put them by our front door to put our keys in!

So many things you can do with rock filled containers. :)

How do you organize your makeup brushes? What DIYs have you done lately?

Linking up with Stephanie and Katie for SPD.
