DIY Makeup Brush Roll

01
31
I’m not very skilled in the sewing department, but I can do some basics. 
I needed a larger makeup brush roll, but I couldn’t find a pattern that I liked. I perused Etsy, of course, but oftentimes the fabrics used are busy. I was looking for something plain and simple!

And then I found myself in the placemat aisle at Target. I picked up a simple placemat, that was already straight, even, and nicely finished on all the ends. And I thought to myself, “Well, this could possibly be the easiest project in the world”. So I purchased this perfectly sized and prepared bit of fabric (for about $3.00), folded and sewed. 

And easy it was. 

Here was the process:

1. Fold up bottom of placemat approx. 3 1/2 inches. and pin in place.

2. Slip a 2 foot long piece of ribbon under pin to hold in place. (this will act as a “wrap” to keep the roll together) Sew a straight line along both sides to seal the edges.

 3. Measure makeup brush “pockets” depending on your needs and pin in place. I did 1/12 inch spaces for large brushes, and 1 inch spaces for small (eyeshadow, concealer, etc) brushes.

 4. And now for the hardest part, sew a straight line to the top of the folded section. Continue all the way down until you reach the other end of the placemat.

. . . and thats pretty much it!

ugly bathroom lighting. . .
See my small brush roll back there? I definitely needed more space! 

Look at this beauty! all my brushes fit! PLUS my eyeliners. I leave those 2 brushes in the middle out since they are double ended.
I was so excited about my finished product that I made TWO and I want to give one to one of YOU! (I can rhyme too!) <–nerd-alert.

Anyway, here are the details:
The brush roll is the size of a standard placemat. ( 18.5 x  9 inches )
It’s kind of a minty, greeny, blue. 
There are 6 large (1.5 inch) pockets and 9 small (1 inch) pockets.

Here is how to enter the giveaway for your very own Makeup Brush Roll:

Leave a comment below telling me your favorite makeup brush. If you don’t own any (which would make a brush roll an interesting win for you. . .!), tell me which brush you are planning to fill your roll with first!

The winner will be chosen Friday February 3rd at 8:00am EST via random.org. There will only be 1 winner, and that winner will be notified via e-mail.

Please include your e-mail address in each comment so I can contact you if you win!

Thanks!

And if you own a sewing machine, go make one for yourself! 🙂

The Winner is. . . .

This is sooo cute! I’ve been looking for something simple also! My new favorite brush is my new foundation brush. I used to just use those sponges, I just never spend the money on a foundation brush but now that I have it I love it! I love all my brushes but its my new favorite!

Congrats Keyona! Enjoy your new brush roll!

    What a cool idea! Sometimes I find that with DIY items I end up spending more than the actual item were to cost if I bought it, but this one is great!! I recently purchased a stipple blush brush from ELF and love it, but I have my old standard Trish McEvoy brushes from college that I will never give up. Love your blog!

    My favorite brush is an organic blush brush. I just purchased a few organic brushes the other day and they are so much softer on my skin than the others I used to buy!

    My favorite brush is my Kabuki brush which is used for the all-important bronzer. I use it to brush it on my cheeks, sometimes my eyes when I when I don’t want to wear too much make-up, and even the cleavage just to accentuate a bit.

    I didn’t know what a brush roll was until this post! Now I need one 🙂 My go-to brush is my big, fluffy powder brush from Clinique, though I’d like to give a foundation brush a try. I’m just intimidated at the idea of having to clean it every.single.day…

    My favorite brush is by Sonia Kashuk. It came in a 5-pack of brushes and it’s a big, fluffy blush brush that is so soft that putting on blush has become my favorite part of my makeup routine! And, to top it off, it has the cutest black and white patterned handle!

    My favorite eye brush is the crease brush. All of my gf’s always ask me, “how do you get that definition in your crease? You will have to show me one day.” Little do they know thats its not my magician techniques of makeup application, but just the simple little crease brush which is amazing. One which they will all be receiving in a goodie bag for being a bridesmaid in my wedding! Great idea in using a placemat btw, and I am jealous of all of your mathcing, clean brushes.

    I have no idea what brand my brush is but it is a family hand me down. It is my powder brush. It started with my grandmother, made its way to my mother and now to me. They don’t make brushes like they used to. It is so durable and has just enough bristles that it doesn’t grab to much powder and it doesn’t loose bristles like the new ones do.

    I am not entering since all my brushes have mini handles to fit in my medicine cabinet (small NY apartment bathrooms!) but I just wanted to comment that your post is inspiring me to check the placemat section of the store more often. I have a 2 year old so we avoid cloth placemats at all costs since she gets food on everything at every meal. Sometimes I miss the pretty colors but had never considered buying placemats and using them for other projects. Thank you!!!!

On one end it is a liner and the other is just a perfect blending tool for eyeshadow. If I don’t win yours, I am going to brush the dust off my sewing machine and see if I can make it work.

I’ve been looking for one of these, but i don’t like busy patterns or plain black and haven’t been able to find one! This is such a great idea! If i don’t win this, I will definitely try to make one. Although, I haven’t used a sewing machine since I was a Freshman in High School! My favorite EcoTools Kabuki brush definitely needs a better place to be stored! Thanks so much for posting this!

    Bare Minerals brushes! They come with a brush cleaner, which I love. I also have a couple brushes from Benefit of San Francisco, but BM is my go-to brush 99% of the time!

    I was just saying last week how badly I need one of these! I just got a ton of new MAC brushes for Christmas, and I need something to keep them organized. It’s so hard to pick my favorite, so I’d have to say it’s between the 217 eyeshadow brush, and my stippling brush.

    I love my eyeshadow brush. It is an absolute must when applying eyeshadow. You just cannot use those little plastic things with “sponge nubs” that come in the compacts. Another one I can’t live without is my blush brush. I don’t wear foundation for the most part, but I do like to add color to my cheeks, and this soft, fluffy, but not overly large brush provides just the amount of color and slight contour needed to make a face beautiful. dorothy(dot)wu(at)live(dot)com

    Believe it or not, my favorite brush is an eye shadow brush made by “Jane” cosmetics—a drug store cheapie that I’ve had for years! Thank goodness I purchased more than one since they no longer make them. It’s a perfect narrow brush great for doing my creases with shadow. It’s not even contoured. I’ve purchased more expensive brushes from department stores, but some of my favorite (read: “easy to use”) are my drug store brushes! Ulta and Sephora also have good brushes via their store brands. Love the cosmetic roll! What makes it even better is that you can probably put into a lingerie bag and wash on gentle cycle when you need to freshen it up! Fabulous! Love your blog!

    My favorite makeup brushes: 1) brozer brush….what can i say? I LOVE bronzer! I used to work at a tanning salon, and since I dont anymore and my fiance made a pact with me that I am not allowed to tan, and when I travel to warm places I am required to wear spf 15 minimum…..bronzer is my friend <3 i actually prefer it to blush. i hardly ever wear blush. but bronzer i LOVE
    2) my eyeshadow blending brush. I love being able to get a great fade/gradient in my eyeshadow colors, making the outer edges darker and having it be gradual and not super drastic. love this brush!

    what a crafty lady you are 🙂 never would have thought of that! and your color choice is superb! very clean!

    So before I even got to the part of the blog where you wanted to know our favorite brushes, I was going to comment to suggest a piece on all of your brushes(or what different types you suggest every girl should have!) I own a few, my favorite being my bare minerals foundation brush bc it seems to put the powder so evenly on my face and its lasted for years. But I noticed in one blog you said to use a eye shadow brush for light shadows only, and I never thought about that but it makes perfect sense not to mix light and darks. So anyway I would love to see something along those lines with all of your brushes!! Now I must go find (or make) a brush roll bc yours looks great!

    Great idea! I have more than 100 makeup brushes, so it’s hard to narrow it down to one favorite, but if choosing one, I would have to say my IB106 – Italian Badger Angle Brush from Crown. A little tan powder contouring with this brush takes off at least 5 lbs.! I also can’t live without a metal-toothed eyelash comb! [email protected]

    My fave brush is the Laura Mercier Fan Powder Brush (see here: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P277509&categoryId=B70). I have actually noticed that my makeup stays on longer just by using this soft, thin and flat, brush! It’s perfect for your makeup travel bag (or a brush roll!) because it’s lightweight and flat… but it gets the job done and really completes your look.

My dave brush is my MAC foundation brush, leaves a flawless finish! Make sure to clean your brushes ladies! If you notice breakouts for no reason, it may be your brushes! A little bit of baby shampoo works, no need for any fancy cleaners. Wash it till the water runs clear and let air dry. I do this once per week before I go to bed. 🙂

    I am desperate for a makeup brush solution and this is just what I need! I collect brushes so it is hard to pick a favorite, but I think it has to be my big fluffy Bare Escentuals flawless application face brush. It is so soft and provides great coverage. Thanks so much for your amazing blog! I’ve learned so many great tips and tricks!

    My favorite brush is my crease brush! It makes adding the darker colors to the crease SO easy and whether I’m doing a more natural look or a smokey eye it turns out perfect everytime! I give the credit to my brush and not to me.

    My favourite brush has to be my overall brush – it’s supposed to be a powder brush but when held (and cleaned!) the right way, you can use it for powder, blush, bronzer and contouring, all by holding the bristles in a different way. Even though I have all those brushes separately (hence the need for a brush roll bigger then my current!) my powder brush would definitely be a deserted island essential due to it’s versatility!

The foundation blush is my favorite, it helps to keep coverage even and smooth! This bag would be perfect for my many brushes which currently sit in a mason jar on my vanity and travel in a zip loc bag (GASP!).

    I’m a bit lost, did you not include one of the steps? You mentioned placing pins for each brush space and they you mentioned sewing one straight line and they you are done?

    I love all my brushes from E.L.F. – especially the blush brush. I would *love* a brush roll…you’d hate to see my makeup bag I currently use. Ugh.

    You did a great job on the bag! Wish I knew how to sew.

    Hi! Just love your blog and posts 🙂 My favorite brush is the Blush Brush from Mary Kay. It’s great to use, super fluffy and soft, and easy to clean!
    Hope you have a GREAT day!

    I don’t own any name brand brushes but my favorite brush is the blush brush! I think it’s because that is my favorite cosmetic product 🙂
    Thanks for doing this!

    I own brushes…well not sure if what I own is brushes or not. 🙂 I only have the little brushes that come with the eyeshadow compact it self, or blush compact etc… I use the sponge thingys to apply my foundation. I would like to try out the foundation brush. So if I had a makeup brush holder…i would probably try out several more brushes to better apply my makeup. 🙂 Love your blog too! Amber [email protected]

    I LOVE my bronzer brush! It is by far my favorite one because it is big and poufy and makes my bronzer look natural!

    Excellent idea…very creative use of a clearance item, too!

    My fav makeup brush is my blusher brush. I’m on the hunt for a new concealer brush and foundation brush, too, since the ones I have are on their last leg. Guess I’ll need to spend a little more this time on them and get better quality!

    I’m not sure what the name of it is, but it’s an angled eyeshadow brush for getting in the crease.

    I am make-up brush challenged!! I only use 2. My favorite, which I wish I could use is the fan brush. No idea what that’s for. Your make-up roll is super cute!

    OMG do you really have over 700 comments!!!! Kate, you blog is awesome! I am excited to check it daily. I have all my coworkers hooked. I am a dermatologist so I can usually relate to a lot of your posts. I love all my make-up brushes. I guess the ones I use most are my eyelid brushes. I don’t know where I would be with out them:) I guess my blush and bronzer thick brushes are also a must. I love them all and I love your brush roll, Guinness.

    I have had my favorite brush for about 20 years. I got it in high school in one of those kits you get for xmas from an aunt or something! It’s a cheapie but it’s stubby, compact bristles are perfect for blending my eyeshadow in the crease.

    I wouldn’t know how to sew to save my life! So, yes, I would love to fill this beautiful little placemat/makeup holder up with all my brushes. And…my new favorite brush? My flat eyeliner brush. (:

    What a great idea! One of my treats to myself this year is to continue to invest in some new makeup brushes, but for now my favorite is my big ole’ Sonia Kashuk bronzer brush.

    Thanks for such a great blog, I love checking in each day to see what’s new!

    Love this idea!!! I’m making one or two or seventeen as soon as I figure this sewing machine out. Or maybe I’ll win the extra you made and then I can just con my mom into making one for some of my friends 🙂

    As for my favorite makeup brush, that’s a no-brainer, I LOVE my blush brush. I’m more obsessed with the actual blush then the brush, but the brush gets it on my face so I can’t exactly have one without the other 😉

    My favorite brush is the Sonia Kashuk large blending brush with the swoopy black handle. I love her brushes! I really need a brush roll so I hope I get this! If not I’ll definitely be using your idea and making one of my own. Thanks!
