In this tutorial I will show you how easy it is to make a DIY Brush bag. If you remember the DIY makeup bag tutorial, I explained how important it is for me that the bag don’t get makeup pigment stains inside. So in this DIY I have done the same. I lined the inside of the Brush bag with plastic for easy cleaning with a damp cloth. At the same time, this bag prevents the tips of your brushes from muss and lose their shape by being divided and organized. I hope you like the result of this tutorial.

Summer is almost here and most of us will do a little vacation trip too, right? So I created a DIY Travel Kit, with different pieces for your convenience when traveling. So let’s start with an easy one, let’s make a DIY makeup bag.
The problem I’ve had with makeup bags, is that it’s almost inevitable that eye shadow, eyeliner or blush ends up staining the bag inside… and your cute makeup bag ends up looking like a piñata of colors and stains inside, and there’s no way to clean that! So with this bag, I decided to make it with a plastic liner to make it very easy to clean with a damp cloth if any accident happens. So let’s start, DO IT YOURSEL TRAVEL KIT starts now!
