I decided to get two square vases from the dollar store, to keep on top of my bedroom vanity in front of which I do my makeup. With a few more brushes subsequently being added to my collection, I realized that having just two holders wouldn't be enough, so I took inspiration from a few beauty bloggers and decided to repurpose a used candle jar by cleaning out the wax that couldn't be burnt. To do so I simply placed the candle in a pot containing about an inch of boiling water and let it sit for about a minute, after which the piece of metal at the bottom became unglued and the leftover wax liquefied and could be easily poured out. I then gave the jar a good wash, and voilà - I had a new makeup brush holder! I think this is just a brilliant idea, and I plan on doing this from now on if ever I need more containers. I also purchased a bag of marbles from the craft store to act as a filler for my eye brushes since they are thinner and need support to stand upright.
