Use a bamboo placemat to organize your makeup brushes! It’s an easy DIY project with so many benefits. The first benefit is that you can always find your brushes. If you’re like the majority of women, your makeup brushes are probably scattered about in all your different makeup cases. This organizer will keep them together so you don’t have to waste any time when getting ready. Keeping makeup brushes away from actual cosmetic products is more hygienic, too. Tucked away safely in this converted  DIY bamboo placemat makeup brush organizer, they stay clean and in tact, without bristles fanning out or becoming damaged.

You also won’t have to battle with the original case they came in, if there was one in the first place. Some of the original cases make it almost impossible to put the brushes back into their spots. This is a beauty tip that will go a long way in ensuring you look your best without any stress. Wouldn’t that be nice?!!!
