How to make the brush holder jars like Sephora

.

I know there are also other tutorials and such on how to make the brush holder jars like the ones at Sephora, but I also put my own spin on it by adding a few gems to the jar to give it a little pizazz. My OLD brush jar was a mesh pen holder I got from Office Max, and I was quickly growing out of it! So I transferred all the brushes from the old holder into a clear glass jar of similar height from Michaels for only $2.99. It comes with a lid which I just took off. I then bought a transparent vase filler, which are tiny round "bubbles" that will hold your brushes in place.

You do not need to fill it half way because when you add you brushes it rises up (like when you have a glass of water and add ice cubes, there's "more" water).

The glue gun and jewels I used to decorate the jar are also from Michael's.

INcredibly cute and great idea! Too bad I'm always on the go so I just have to keep my brushes in my brush roll.

Joey said...

The big jewels are such a Nessa touch! I would do this, but my makeup box is always moving with me. I never do my makeup in the same place, haha.

Laav it (:

Ethereal Prey said...

that is super cute! gotta have some bling bling! is it ok to keep your make up brushes in the bathroom? moisture and all.

Anastasia said...

Pretty! I just use a box (a nice box) that came from the Boots Collection 17 Vintage promotion. Have you ever tried glass painting? I bet you'd be good at it =x

Vanessa said...

Ethereal Prey- Oh I don't keep my brushes in the bathroom, I just took a pic of it since the bathroom has better lighting LOL. But I keep it on my vanity... :)

Anastasia- I should try that out sometime! I have been eyeing it!

That's really cute. I put Epson Salts in mine instead of the filler.

Robyn @ Purely Cosmetics said...

Great idea. I think I like to see what your latest nail job is in each of these tutorials even more - you've always got great designs on them!

yummy411 said...

jeSmakeup said...

i love ur fake nails!! its soo cool u kno how to work wit them =) im not into them cuz they get in the way of everything... you're soo creative n unique!

Vanessa said...

Hi Carina! I haven't tried their brushes (Flirt!) but I have tried their other products, but I can see why they are good since they are in the same company family as MAC and Estee Lauder. :)

Mrs. Lynne, MakeupFix.net said...

awwww. so cute sis! you should toss some of those gems in with the fill too! :D

ShanSoPink said...

I love the jewels!

Kimmy Nguyen said...

This is a great idea! I went to Micheal's today to get some of their products but they didn't have the color fill so i ended up getting tiny marbles =/

where can you purchase that at?

:a: :b: :c: :d: :e: :f: :g: :h: :i: :j: :k: :l: :m: :n:
