I saw Brush Protectors featured in Real Simple Magazine, and I thought they were a great idea! When I travel by plane, I can't take my makeup box, so I have to down size and throw a few things in a bag. This is not so great for my makeup brushes. They look pretty haggard by the time I am unpacking at home.
So, you can buy a set here at Sephora for $8, which isn't a bad price, or you can make your own for literally pennies! Here's how.
You will need:
-Nylon net (your choice of color! I chose black, but they have white, red, pink, etc.) You'll only need a foot, which will leave a lot of leftover material, and only cost me $0.32.
-Thin ribbon (optional)
That's it! When you are ready to use, you slide the base of your brush through the top of the protector, then slide it up over the brush. If you used a ribbon, you can now tie you bow!
Thanks for stopping by!
