Makeup Storage {Part 1}…

I have decided to do a series on {makeup storage}. I am such a girly girl, and I know a lot of you are as well.. so let’s organize those makeup drawers!! I have a passion for makeup & true confession: I have A LOT of makeup. I love collecting & trying out new products, & let’s face it the cosmetic industry is constantly putting out new products that I am tempted to try… not my fault. So I am in need of good makeup storage, so I thought, why not make it cute? {Part 1} is how I store my makeup brushes….

I made these {Makeup Brush Storage} Jars for my new vanity.
I got all my items to make these jars at my local Michael’s.
Two jars (I chose a square shape), letter cut outs (That were on Clearance!), a hot glue gun,
& colerfill (tiny clear beads) to hold the brushes upright in the jars.
This is sadly not all my makeup brushes, but I wanted to just
but my most used ones in my jars. I will show you in another post how
I store my other makeup brushes.
The beads help the brushes stand up strait so they are always
easy to find & easily accessible.
I hot glued the letters to the jars. It seemed to hold really well,
but a specific glue for glass might work even better.
I hope you liked my part {one} of my makeup storage series. How do you store your makeup brushes? I hope you all are having a great week.. It’s Wednesday tomorrow, ALMOST the weekend. Let me know if you use this idea!! I would love to see your makeup storage tips, go link them up on Liz Marie Blog Facebook Page.


  1. I actually had written down to pick up some stuff to do some of these makeup storage things at Michael's the next time I went! I AM IN LOVE with the little letter cut-outs you got to label them with. That is TOTALLY adorable! <3333

  6. Liz Marie says:

    @Jennifer I'm glad you love them.. I was thinking maybe they were too plain.. but I wanted to keep them simple :)

  7. wow I love it! so cute!

  8. Sooo cute! I love how you labeled them eyes & face. I have been wanting to get those clear beeds for awhile, to make it feel like whenever I am grabbing a brush I am at Sephora LOL

  20. I actally did the same thing a little while back! I had tall circular vases left over from my wedding and am using them for my brushes, lip and eyeliners and then other *ahem* feminine itmes, in a concealed area of course. But I think I'll add something to the bottom of my brush jar – that's a great idea! Thanks for sharing! :)

  21. Katrina @ They All Call Me Mom says:

    The beads at the bottom are such a great idea — they serve a purpose, yet are pretty, too! Love it!

    I saw your link on The Middle Matters blog hop…and I'm your newest follower :) Happy Wednesday!

    Hello, I just wanted to let you know I have given you the Stylish Blogger Award from my blog. Go ahead and check it out. Amber

  29. This is really neat! Unfortunately since my 2 yo already LOVE my makeup brushes, I'm thinking the beads would cover the bathroom! Maybe when she's older!

  30. I've given you The Stylish Blogger Award but you must now pay it forward. please go here to read more

  31. what a great idea.

  32. Raeanna says:

    Brilliant idea!! I'm wondering if those beads come in colors. I'd like to do a crazy colorful version for my 12yr. old stepdaughter. I LOVE your idea!!!!!

  33. Brandy J. says:

    I just found your blog and am your newest follower. This is a great idea — practical and pretty. Thanks for creating such an inspirational blog for all of us to enjoy!

  34. Kara @ Nest Candy says:

    I {LOVE} these! I also store my brushes in a similar fashion. I did a post about my system here:

    I use beans instead of the poly beads. I like how you used the cute letters to label each container. Thanks for sharing!

  35. Silver Daisies says:

    I love the idea of the beads to help the brushes stand up straight! I have a tutorial coming up on my blog for my own makeup brushes, I might have to use that idea! Thanks for sharing! Your jars looks adorable!

  36. aneyefordetail says:

    Very clever! So easy to see them all. I store mine lying down…and thus try to keep them to a bare minimum!

  37. miscellaneousme says:

    Another great idea!


  38. This is an amazing idea. I have all my brushes and pencil in cups, but it just doesn't look right. Thanks for the great idea!

  39. Mayya @ Sew Chic and Unique says:

    This conversation between us girls just proved to me that I am not the one in this world who has a massive weakness for make-up brushes and make-up itself. Ha…to me it is a quilty pleasure :-)

  45. BerryMorins Bits & Tips says:

    I Googled for makeup storage and your blog popped up. I'm looking to create a makeup area but have a very limited space.
    Thanks for the ideas!

  46. I love this! I made one and posted it on my Pinterest board. :)

  47. Hey. Thanks for the idea. I have been using a jam jar that I cleaned up and it was already kind of pretty because the angles on the glass. but now it looks even better!

  48. Tamara Cramer says:

    I made these too! I just tied couple of contrasting ribbons around a recycled empty jar (canning jar, empty candle jar, empty jelly jar etc) and then I filled the bottom with small aquarium stones and it worked great! $3 for the stones and that was my total cost!

  49. So creative! I love it! Can I write an article about it?? Check out my page on Examiner…I think the girls will lov it!! :)

  50. Amazing Idea! Definitely doing this!
