If there’s one thing that drives me absolutely batty, it’s clutter. I enjoy having things organized, so I know where they are and don’t have to hunt for them. Time is precious so I don’t want to waste it looking for things.
You know how that is, right?
Well, I was starting to feel a little unhinged about my makeup brushes. They were everywhere and somehow always managed to get smooshed. My eye and lip liners are more hindrances to my semi-organized life. The roll away, get mixed in with other things and disappear just when I need them most. I want to keep my sanity so I decided to make some DIY makeup organizers to get my DIY vanity in check.
DIY Makeup Brush Organizer
The first thing I did was take an empty cat treat container and cut the top off with an X-ACTO knife.
I used 2 green floral foam cubes to fill the container, laying one horizontal and standing the other vertically. I got lucky and they fit perfectly, but if not I could have trimmed them to fit.
I carefully pressed my brushes in, one at a time, so they made a hole.
I painted the container and wrapped it with ribbon, adding a few embellishments for some extra pizzaz.
DIY Makeup Organizer
To organize my eye and lip liners, and mascara, I used an old plastic Q-tip container. I just painted it, wrapped a ribbon around it, and glued a few embellishments to it.
This is so handy for stopping pencils from rolling away and keeping everything where it should be.
Both of these DIY beauty tool projects were simple and quick making them something you can do whenever you have a few minutes to spare. I had an instant feeling of relief once they were done and am already trying to think of what I can organize next!
