Beauty: Cleaning your Makeup Brushes.
Makeup brushes are no cheap thing and after some time they become caked with residues of makeup, death skin and bacteria. Now imagine brushing your face with those infection colonies... Ewwwwww!
Really gross when you think about it, because who really cleans them as much as they should?
But once you know it, it becomes perfectly clear that such mess is one of the ingredients to terrible breakouts. That is why cleaning your brushes is one of the most important thing to do in order to have a nice, clean face. It's not just the food, or drinking tons water, or washing it regularly, everything needs to be clean. It's been in my To-Do list for over 2 weeks and today I finally got the chance to fulfill a task worthy of a pro makeup artist.
I chose to do it with MAC's Brush Cleanser. Just soak them in water, place a drop of the product in the roots of the brush, wash it, rinse, reshape and place in a towel. That's one of the most recommended ways because the product loosens the makeup rests attached to the hairs of the brush.
If you don't have one in hand, take a bar of white, uncented, most basic, soap or dish washer to clean them. Either way you'll be taking all th pasted bacteria away and prolong the life of your brushes.
