Where Do You Store Your Makeup Brushes?

The roll-up pouch containing my makeup brushes has been getting a little overcrowded as of late, so I started storing my seldom-used brushes in an old pencil container. (The cup kind, not the kiddie pencil sort.) This got me to thinking about other storage options for my collection of these trusty cosmetic tools. Whether it's a well-stocked train case for hard-core makeup users, or a cute compartmentalized pouch, where do you keep your makeup brushes?

Yoga - If you have a problem, so do I. Right now I have one train case that not everything fits in. I think I need to get a second case, one for more everyday use and one for special occasion makeup.

Mine are in a silver pencil cup near my makeup. The brushes I don't use are in a box.

I could never find mine until I read this, and decided to throw them in a vase. What took me so long? Thanks bellasugar. :)

I place my brushes in this gorgeous hand made white pencil holder made out of croatian stone. It basically has a limestone feel to it. Its simply stunning!

I like standing mine up in a ceramic wide, deep container. Especially handy when drying them after washing them.

In my makeup drawer as well. I like the idea of a vase with glass beads on the counter.

We LOVE Robert LeHeros Travel Dressing Cases. The patterns are gorgeous - they could double as evening clutches!

Kinda fancy silver thing also. I love my makeup and treat with the utmost respect since I spend plenty of $ on it. Same as I do my food.

My former roommate came up with the best idea and I followed suit. She bought a silverware tray (the kind that you put in kitchen drawers) and separated out all her makeup in that! I now use one of the slots for all my brushes! Perfect!

I have a little 3-drawer Sterilite container and keep my brushes in one of the drawers. I used to keep them in a cup, and I'd love to store them like liz213 does (sounds so pretty!) but I've got several dual-ended brushes and such storage doesn't exactly work for those ones.

Got my set at Bobbi Brown and it came with a leather pouch/case.

After one of my candles from IKEA finally burnt out (http://www.ikea.com/ca/en/catalog/products/80109812) I wiped all the wax off the glass, cleaned it up and chucked them in there. :)

I have a small plate on my bathroom shelf, and I rest my makeup brushes there.

I keep my brushes on my dresser in a vase we had lying around the house. My makeup case, which is just like the one in the pic, is overflowing with makeup already.
