How I clean my makeup brushes #bbloggers

Hi Guys,

So being Sunday yesterday it was the perfect time to clean my makeup brushes. I’m not going to lie this is my least favourite thing about beauty, the chores! It’s like plucking your eyebrows or removing nail polish, no one enjoys those tasks. We like the application and playing around. None of this cleaning business *sigh* regardless, it has to be done to avoid nasty bacteria that can build up on the brushes.


So here’s how I tackle this boring chore. A few YouTuber’s have put me onto using Johnson’s Baby Shampoo so that’s what I use, you can pick it up from your local supermarket.


Other than that you just need some tap water and your own hands (oh and your dirty makeup brushes of course). I do this into my sink and I squirt a bit of the shampoo in the nook where the soap usually sits. This way I just pick up my brush, drench it in water, dip it in the shampoo and clean away (using gentle circular motions).


Please note, for bigger/denser brushes I recommend repeating this process a few times until clear water runs from the brush when you squeeze the excess water out. 


You’ll then need to let these babies dry possibly overnight (that’s how long my big fluffy brushes take). Make sure you have your brushes drying upside down as you don’t want to have them the other way around and then the water eat away at the glue and cause bristles to fall out :) 


Until next time..


Current Obsession

Surely it’s not just me who late at night wants that naughty snack. So I thought I’d share a quick and easy snack with you that’s half naughty, half good – strawberries with melted milk chocolate!!! Ok, if I am honest it is definitely still naughty… but what the heck, it’s delicious!

What you’ll need:

–          Strawberries

–          Cooking chocolate (I use cadbury’s chocolate melts – YUM!)

–          China bowl

–          Teaspoon

And it’s as easy as popping this in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time – taking it out, stirring – popping it back in until its melted (this all depends on how much chocolate you are  wanting to melt).

Voila! Easy, yummy snack! Enjoy :)

Here’s a pick of one I had a while back (best study snack ever!)


God gift from heaven for all you nail painters!!

You know when you’re doing your nails and you’ve waited ages for them to dry, think you’re safe and NEK MINNIT those beautiful fresh nails are ruined because they weren’t dry and you’ve knocked them against something!!! Well I have been praying for a product to fix this and have recently found one! Essence express dry drops. Not only does it work, it’s cheap! I got mine for about $3.50 from Priceline. BRILLIANTT!



Big, Bold, Beautiful Lashes

People often ask me if I am wearing false eye lashes because my eye lashes look huge. Most of the time I am not (only wear falsies on special occasions) so I thought I would give you my tips on how I make my eyelashes appear nice and big!

Firstly, currrrrl those lashes girl! I cannot stress how important this step is. Curl them lashes. This points the lashes up to the sky which gives the false lash effect. I use the Lancôme eyelash curler (came in a pack as a present) but any normal eyelash curler should work.


Secondly, apply layer upon layer of mascara. I use Maybelline vibrating mascara. I rarely use the vibrating part of this mascara I just find this mascara gives me the thick clumpy lashes I am after. Use your mascara and do countless layers brushing up. To give these lashes more dimension I also apply one of two coats of mascara brushing down the eyelash. This gives it HEAPS of volume.


Taa –daaaa! Pear this with a smoky eye and your ready to hit the town. If you would like me to do a tutorial on my version of a smoky eye comment below and I shall arrange that!!
