Eureka Moment- Brush Holder

I was in continuous search for a brush holder for my "personal" brushes. I am so picky when it comes to my makeup tools. I want it to be really "cute" , fashionable and of course, affordable! I was just doing my usual rounds of "window shopping" with my hubby when I laid eyes on this cute jar with lid. Bought this at Puregold for around Php150-200.00

They have a couple of different designs and lid color but just to be part of the theme, I bought this one with the word BRUSH on it *hehehe*

And here's how it looks like with my brushes, I am still on a lookout for those cute pebbles to keep my brush holder in style and my brushes standing straight up!

As for the lid, I don't want to throw it away so I've decided to keep it and use it as my tool in brush cleaning.

The "Starbucks" bottle is my "home made" brush cleanser (inspired by Koren of Enkore). After each application, I would put in some of the brush cleaner on the lid and swirl it and clean it up using a towel :D I am so happy with my find!

I hope this inspires you guys as well to find your brush holders ...happy searching!
