    Brushes are the biggest investment you’ll ever make in taking your cosmetics game to the next level.
  2. It’s crucial to keep them somewhere that helps them remain in good condition.

    Whilst brush rolls might be indispensable for a makeup artist who’s always on the go, if your tools rarely travel, then store them somewhere upright where they can breathe, and won’t get crushed or bent.

    You can also fill this pretty marble-effect brush holder with glass beads or coffee beans to make sure they stay standing tall.
