DIY Make-up Brush Holders (by MissGlamorazzi)


When I got nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award one of my random facts was 'I love DIY projects, only I can never come up with any!'. This is still true! I thought I'd share a DIY I found on MissGlamorazzi's youtube channel. It's a DIY Make Up Brush Holder! When I saw these I was amazed I had never thought to do that! (Isn't that always the case? haha) She takes empty candle jars (in the video she also shows you how to remove wicks and excess wax) and turns them into glittery brush holders! Instead of putting the glitter on the outside of the candle jar, she coats the inside with it. I thought that was clever because I'd rather have glitter fall out inside of the jar than outside onto my shelves. Less of a clean-up basically! I took 3 diferent sized Slatkin & Co. Candles that were pretty much dead and gone to create my own! I really recommend you guys check this video out! It was really fun to do as a small weekend craft!


Above are how my candle jars came out! I was little scared at first because when I applied the glue and added the glitter, you could still see glue marks all over and I didn't know if that's what was supposed to happen and if it would dry clear. Patience really is a virtue because it dried clear! I think they look absolutely gorgeous! All my glitters are Martha Stewart brand which I'm sure you'll be able to find at your local craft store. The colors I chose were amethyst, bronze, and aquamarine crystal! Instead of using them as make up brush holders (since two of them are quite small for that) I decided to put my lip glosses in the amethyst colored one, my NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils in the bronze one, and all my lip, eyeliners, and mascaras in the aquamarine one! So glittery and so sparkly!

What do you guys think? Will you be trying it out this weekend?
