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..


Clubbing proof makeup tips

Over the weekend I went put clubbing for my birthday and wanted to share my top 3 tips for clubbing proof makeup

1. Prime that face
I just find this helps your makeup to stick on and last the whole night so don’t miss this step.

2. Powder up
I find applying two layers of powder really sets my foundation. Tip though, after that don’t powder again. You don’t want to end up cakey and if you go and reapply in the bathroom this is bound to happen.

3. Falsie it up
There’s not a better time than going out for you to doll up and apply some falsies. :)



I used Loz Curtis’ prom makeup tutorial for my look :)




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!!
