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..

Beauty products that fly under the radar: Our hidden treasures

Hi Guys,

So we often give credit to brushes as the greatest beauty tools you can own but what about those ones we use constantly that just happen to fly under the radar?! Why I’m talking about those simple yet effective beauty tools such as cotton tips, lash curlers and tweezers. Now without these I would have nothing to aid me get rid of the dark bags under my eyes from mascara smudging, limp lashes and John Howard eye brows (Australian joke) But seriously let’s just take a moment to appreciate how awesome these tools are!

Cotton tips: I mostly use these to wipe off unwanted makeup when I make a mistake (which may I add quite frequently happens) I also use these when I apply falsies.

Lash Curler: Now I wouldn’t say I use this everyday but if I want that extra umph in the lash department this is my go-to.

Image

Tweezers: Do I even need to explain to you where we would be without this magical tool! I like to keep to my natural brow shape so this just helps me pick up the stragglers growling wildly out of control.

What are your hidden treasure beauty tools? These are defiantly the top three for me!
