How do you gals (and guys) store your makeup brushes? I bought a brush roll with about 20 slots and I think its great but sometimes I just get lazy and put some of them in a cup/cylinder (like how you just put pens/pencils in a cup)--is this not a good way to store them? I think I read that brushes shouldn't be stored exposed to air since they'll collect bacteria?

I just want to make sure I keep my brushes as clean and as new looking as possible so please share your storage tips and do's/don'ts :heart:

I just have mine stashed altogether laying down right near my make up case on a tray. I really need to find something cute to put them in too.

I store mine in a brush roll. I actually like using it. I can find brushes more easily than when I stored them loose in a cosmetic bag.

I just stick them in a cup. Is it really that harmful to expose them to air like that? I wash them fairly often.

I store them in a large cup like container ( I have no idea what it really is for , it was on clearnece at Target ) Standing up ,I can find my brushed easyily and there is enough room in the container for them not to get crushed or messed up .I have about 35 different brushes most by MAC

Brush roll but sometimes in my stila tin which unfortunately the cats always knock over so most of my brushes are now fallen down the back of the chest of drawers. *sigh*

a couple are in a makeup bag and a few are in the little tray I have my makeup in kind of laying in there. I've never worried about how they are stored.
