Makeup Brush Holder Ideas from Ikea


I have been in search for ideas to organize my makeup and tools. Sure I have a brush case to secure my brushes when I’m on the go, but when I’m at home it is easier for me to find my brushes when they are placed in holders.

Some of the concerns about placing brushes on holders are the accumulation of dusts on the bristles, and scratches on the handles from fillers. When not in use, I think it would be wise to store them after cleaning, or simply put a cover on top of the holder and make sure all the bristles are covered. Fillers are the ones you put inside the holder to keep the brushes in place. I would suggest though to find a filler which is round and small, like crystal beads or pellets so as to prevent any damage on the brush handles. I would stay away from sand or stones as fillers, I just think those are a bit rough and creates friction when you take the brushes out and put them back again. Unfortunately I still can’t find the perfect fillers here in our area.

So back on the holders, I have seen a couple of photos online about Ikea plant pots and candle holders being used as brush holders. Since we have a branch nearby here in Jeddah, I decided to give it a go. Not only can you use these for brushes, but it can be used to hold pencils, and the like. On top of that, these are not as pricey as those sold by makeup companies. So here are some of the commonly used pots.

1. Socker Plant Pot, SR 5
It is made of galvanized steel. It is available in different sizes and colors. I do have the one without color in 12cm.

And if you have too many brushes and need a bigger one, you can opt for and oval one.

Product Review: Bareminerals® Kiss & Tell Lipstick Kit



The Bareminerals® Kiss and Tell kit consists of 5 Marvelous Moxie™ lipsticks in various colors namely; Speak Your Mind, Break Away, Get Ready, Go All Out, and Be Bold. All the colors are wearable for a day or a night look, ranging from neutrals to bold ones. These cuties are creamy, opaque, and don’t bleed.

The lippies are all in mini sizes, of which I don’t really mind as they are just perfect to carry around in my makeup pouch. I prefer to have a couple of lippies in different shades than to have one shade of a regular sized lipstick. However, if it is a shade that I always use, I purchase a full size. Here is a closer look of the 5 shades, as well as the swatches.
