Just a reeeally quick tip here for you today. This is a pretty standard tip, and I’m sure plenty of you know this and even do this regularly but I know that it’s something that I used to neglect and know I find that doing it, makes a huge difference! What is this bloody tip you may ask?…
Wash yo’ brushes yo!
Dirty brushes are one of the main things that can upset your skin. Logically, if you don’t wash them you’re just letting all the make-up and bacteria build up on your brush and everyday you are applying that shizz right back onto your face.
I tend to wash my brushes about once a week… or every few days for my foundation and powder brushes.
Washing them is reeeally simple. You don’t need any swanky expensive formulas ( even though I have heard there are some good ones on the market, including MAC’s range). I use a non-fragranced baby shampoo that I bought from Tesco and it works like a charm. If you are going to use a baby shampoo.. I would recommend a non-fragranced one…as it will be less harsh on your face. If you dont want to use a baby shampoo.. you could always use a make-up cleanser… but I think this would be kind of a waste!
For your eye brushes… I would recommend using an inexpensive eye make-up remover. It will remove the make-up reaally quickly and will still be gentle enough for your eyes.
Simply bathe the brushes in warm water and clean each one with the shampoo. Repeat until the brushes are spick and span. Leave the brushes to dry on a clean dry surface… perhaps on a clean dry towel… or if needed dry them off with your hairdryer. And TAH-DAH.. you’ve got yourself some sexy-ass clean brushes.
I will admit, this whole process may seem tedious or time consuming but it honestly does make a lot of difference to your skin AND it prolongs the lifespan of your brushes too! Win win!
Hope this tip was somewhat helpful…or at least gave you some food for thought.
