I have a lean makeup brush collection. I have 8 brushes, and one of them is not technically a brush–it’s a smudger. Here’s 6 of the 8, and this is how I dry them:
I hang them upside down on a clothespin hanger. I pin the slimmer ones straight up. For the fatter ones: I place them in a brush protector secured with elastic bands so they can be pinned.
I find this the most convenient way to dry makeup brushes–the water doesn’t get into the ferule and I don’t have to worry about finding a hygienic flat surface to lay the brushes on.
The smaller brushes dry in less than 4 hours while the bigger ones dry overnight. After they dry, I store them in a small organizer drawer, like this:

I bought the brush protectors at Suesh for Php 250. Shipping fee is Php 50.
