I get asked a lot about my storage ideas and collection of makeup. I have changed my storage and method of organization ten times over! I am HUGE on mason jars. HUGE. I am in love with Pinterest and pretty much repin any mason jar DIY project I see. Well, I got inspired again to do the Sephora-inspired brush holder that has been a favourite of so many makeup lovers.
Here is a quick DIY that you can do with handy things you may have in your kitchen.
- 1-3 jars (mason or other decorative glass jars)
- Coarse Sea Salt
- Dry short grain rice (I prefer white because of the look)
- Ribbon, lace, paint-- or whatever else you'd like to use to decorate your jars!
I mixed 1/3 of rice to salt as a ratio. I found that this keeps the brushes very sturdy and will stop clumping in the mix.
You can use just rice, however I wouldn't recommend the salt only, since I found it a little too hard to stick the brushes in otherwise.
This craft took me a short 10 minutes, and I is a classy touch instead of a regular jar to hold my makeup brushes. I think it would also be a beautiful DIY gift for someone else. So super cheap if you can't find the acrylic beads, and this mix wont scratch your brushes like the ground glass filler.
Hope you enjoy :)
