How to store your make-up brushes

Get inspired with these nine simple make-up brush storage ideas…

Adulting is hard. Don’t make it any harder than it has to be. Having an uncluttered space to get ready in the morning can make a big difference to your attitude for the day. Ever spent the morning scrabbling around your dressing table trying to find what you need? Or had to put on bronzer with your fingers because you can’t find the brush? These alternative ways to store your make-up brushes will mean you have one less thing to worry about in the morning. Give them a go with your Lottie London brush in this month’s box and let us know how you get on!

1. Reuse a candle jar

That luxury scented candle you splashed out on last year? Don’t throw it out once it’s been used: it’s the perfect place to stylishly stash your brushes. Display on your shelves or dressing table – the more the better.

2. Try a tumbler

A plastic tumbler is a simple and chic storage solution for your make-up brushes. Durable and wipe-clean (because…make-up…) they can look especially cool if you line up different colours or opt for an unusual pattern.

3. Super Sundae Glasses

A retro knickerbocker glory glass or a tall dessert glass makes a unique place for your make-up brushes. Experiment with different textures like below or use different height glasses to play with perspective.

4. Copper Cup Mini Make

This DIY project looks anything but. The copper cups are fixed to a wooden board, which is wall-mounted – but you could also lean it up against your dressing table mirror. Find out how to make it here

5. DIY Jam Jars

Washi tape is basically pretty masking tape. The Japanese invention is usually made from natural fibres, like bamboo and hemp and comes in a multitude of colours and patterns – making it a crafter’s favourite. Wrap contrasting colours around washed jam jars for a cool (and free) storage space for your brushes.

6. Cutlery Crafting

These IKEA cutlery caddies have been transformed into a cool hanging storage solution by Glamour magazine. Not a crafter? They’d work just as well lined up in your bathroom – plant pots are another great alternative.

7. Top Drawer Hacks

You can pick up cutlery inserts at the supermarket for a couple of poundsWe think they’re a good option for keeping your dressing table drawers organised – just be careful about using them for anything that heats up – like hair straighteners.

8. Vase Goals

No flowers? No problem. Use an empty vase to keep your make-up brushes safe instead. Add pebbles or even retro sweets (nothing that will melt!) to the bottom of the vase for extra fun.

9. Ace It With Acrylics

If Muji is your mecca then step right this way. Their range of acrylic storage is second-to-none and never goes out of style. If you’re OCD about your living space then this is the best choice for you as many of the options are stackable or interchangeable, so you can make them work for you.
