Sunday Cleaning - Organizing Your Makeup Brushes

I had to find a way to organize my makeup brushes at home and picked up the CosmoCube from Sephora during the VIB Sale a few weeks back. The only problem was, that my brushes kept tipping over or gathering to one side of the holder, and I wanted them to hold upright. I had always found pictures on Pinterest and online about acrylic beads, but no matter what I did, the only places that I could order from, were from the US and shipping to Canada cost a dime and a leg. We were talking close to $100 for acrylic bead vase fillers. 

I was then on a hunt at Walmart and Michaels, no luck - and then one day strolling through the dollar store I found bags of vase fillers for $2 a bag. I purchased 3 and I have to say that I am extremely happy with how this turned out.  I didn't want to use glass fillers just in case it scratched the acrylic holder. This one was perfect. Just be careful when you are filling it up because there is a bit of static that holds the beads to the plastic bag so it may fly around everywhere if you're not careful.  

Also, just make sure to keep doing spot checks when you are filling the container because the more brushes you put in the holder, the more the beads will push up and may therefore spill over. So, for the bigger brushes in the back, I used less filler than the front and it works out to looking the same. 

Until next time, XO - M.
