What do you do with your makeup brushes?

Here is my makeup/toiletries drawer:

Chaotic right?

For some time now, I have been using one of those plastic sliding drawer organizers above my toiletries to help efficiency but it has just become messy.  There must be a better and prettier way to display makeup brushes?  My next goal is to organize the toiletries with pretty wood drawer dividers?  That's what I'm thinking...

This photo was on pinterest and I thought, hey I could try something like this!

Instead of the coffee beans, I wanted something a little more girly and sparkly!  I bought a simple glass container ($1.00 from the dollar store, ha!) and then filled it with pretty clear beads from Joanne Fabrics.  Inserted the brushes, and I'm done.

Lookin' good right?

My idea eventually is to find a pretty tray where I can place all of my makeup inside and contained, like this photo:

This tray is from West Elm and is no longer available.  So, I am in the market for another tray.

Happy Organizing! 


  1. your tray idea...they have those little unpainted serving trays that are slim at any craft store or walmart. You could then paint it what color you want and put down scrap book paper. Just a thought.

    1. That's a great idea! I actually ended up purchasing a small wooden tray from Bed Bath and Beyond for cheap and I wrote about it here ( But I like the idea of the scrap book would be easy to change out the paper seasonally or just whenever. Thanks for your comment!
