If you are anything like me, your make up pile is a mess. Dad I am looking at you (I keed I keed). I have five brushes that I use and mascara, but I have probably 15 different eye shadows and eyeliners. What is silly about that, it that I have about 15 different shades of brown/gold. I don't have anything funky, I don't have anything wild. I have a crap ton of makeup in the same shades.
When we lived in Las Vegas we had a huge countertop in our bathroom. One that was large enough for me to spread all my makeup out on and I knew where everything was. Here in Seattle, our master bathroom is smaller than my closet and I have no counter space. Instead, I keep all my makeup on a tray on our dresser. Because of this I can never find the brush I am looking for. Every morning, I am digging through my tray of makeup looking for the one brush that I need. It's really dumb.
So why not make myself a little brush holder out of PVC...right?
I used an extra piece of 3/4" PVC that I was going to use for candles until that candle project turned out so awful. I wrapped it in some colorful duct tape, stuffed a 1/2" end cap in the bottom end and TADA! magic was made.
It fits perfect in my little tray of makeup and here you can get a little glance at the madness that is my makeup tray. One day I will build something that makes more sense or helps me organize all my brown toned eye shadow, but for now, lets just stick to the brushes.
