I love my brushes. I have too many of them, sometimes I even forget I had them! Some people binge on lipsticks, I binge on brushes. Well, brushes and eye shadows. And mascaras. And mineral makeup. OK, you get the idea!
Majority of the brushes I use actively for makeup are from Crownbrush.com or Coastalscents.com. Personally, I prefer Crownbrush as they have more choices to choose from. Come to think of it, CS gets most of their brushes from Crown anyway, so you can almost guess the quality when you buy from either vendors.
As for my daily brushes, I put them in big ceramic pots stuffed with plastic beads so they stand up and its just easier for me to find them this way. This was inspired by YouTube's Enkore (love him!) video on the Sephora brush holder. As my brush collection grew, those big pots are becoming smaller and crowded. I can't afford to get another ceramic pot, as I am also running out of space to put them!
I bought those pots for RM5 each at Hinode RM5 shop. I couldn't find smaller beads to fill up the pots ( there were some at the craft store but too expensive!), so I settled for those plastic bead fillers you can also get for RM5 a pack at Hinode. These fillers are a little chunky and awkwardly shaped but they do the job. They're also almost weightless so they don't add the weight to the pots as I put them on top of my plastic drawers (which hold my makeup).
I also throw a lightweight towel over the brushes to avoid dust settling into them, and make sure I deep-clean them every Sunday. Since I have an obscene amount of brushes, this way keeps my makeup area clean and tidy as well.
As you can see, my pots are getting mighty crowded! I had to stick my skunk brushes in another holder just because there is no more space!!
Husband J said those skunk brushes together looked like dead animals on my table!! LOL.
I store my expensive MAC and Bobbi Brown brushes in their respective pouches, tucked far, far away in my drawer. Someday I'll use them. Someday...
One face. And a "thousand" brushes. *sigh* I need to shift my attention into spending on something else (not that I have much $$ to spend on) ... I'm running outta space yo!
