Rather than stashing your makeup brushes away in your cosmetic bag, organize them in jars with coffee beans. Your makeup bag will be free of clutter and you'll get a chance to show off your beauty loot. Plus the coffee beans will make your room smell nice.

How to do it:

  • Get rid of the brushes you're not longer using and wash the one you plan to keep. Lay them flat to dry.
  • Fill a small, empty container (like a detailed cup) with coffee beans and display your brushes.

Expert Tip:

Take it one step further by separating out brushes in multiple jars — one for powder brushes, eyeliner brushes and blending tools. If you really want to let your Type A side take over, organize them in order of use from left to right.
