DIY: Personalizing Your Makeup Brushes!

I have two of the exact same makeup brushes, one I use for blush, the other for bronzer, and I am always getting them mixed up! So i've done something to them so that i'll be able to tell which is which!

For this project you will need: 
  • Tape
  • Your favorite nail polish colors (one for each brush)
  • and your brush! 

That is all! Once you have those things, we can begin!

Step 1: Cut off a piece of tape about an inch and a half long (longer if you have a thicker brush).  Then take your makeup brush and wrap the tape around the tip so that you have left a small section on the end. (As shown in the photo below)

Step 2: Take your favorite nail polish color and paint the end.  It's okay if you paint some of the tape because you'll take that off later! 

Step 3: Let the first coat dry and repeat if the brush color is still showing.  To let my brushes dry, I rest them next to the sink with the wet part of the brush hanging off the edge so that it doesn't get on the counter! 

Step 4: Once both coats are dry, it's time to remove the tape! Be careful removing the tape because the polish may still be a little wet! 

Step 5: Once you've removed the tape, you have a nice clean line, and voila! You will be able to tell which brush is used for which product!
