ETA: actually, there are some wonderful pics in the following thread-glass containers with beads, etc. (only thing for me is....everytime i peek in that thread, it makes me want to buy more and more makeup)
A couple of years ago I went to Walt Disney World and got this adorable, tall, holographic snow white cup. I never actually used the cup, but couldn't bear to toss it, so now I use it for my make-up brushes. I like it because its tall enough so brushes are not falling everywhere, and it adds a little character to my vanity!
im right now using a clear glass drinking glass. not very exciting. i actually would love to happen upon this: http://www.eyeslipsface.com/studio/t...e_brush_holder
i passed it up at tjmaxx and have been kicking myself ever since. i like the shape and that its sectioned. i could keep my pencils in one of them
