I once had a friend who told me that she didn't know that you were supposed to clean your make up brushes. Guys.. for three years! She had the same brushes...Mind you she was using those cheap synthetic two dollar packs.... But still! The whole concept took me out. I nicely told her to throw out what she has and start fresh.
For some of you guys who don't see a problem.
Here are three issues that you can get with dirty brushes:
-Staph infections(Yes.. google it)
-Clogged pores (Pimples all over)
-Pink eye (You get the idea...)
Every time you hop on Instagram or Twitter you always see somebody complaining about how much they hate washing their brushes. I'm in the same boat... I hate washing my brushes! And I'm going to tell you the truth I have enough brushes that I can go without washing brushes for a while. I know that's not the reality for everyone... so I'm gonna show you the easiest way to clean your brushes right now.
Yes there are DIY methods. But if you're lazy and on the go like me :) Here is the quickest and easiest way to clean your brushes and make sure that you're free of infection and bacteria.
Get the Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette ($19.99 CAN)
What is it made of?
How does it work?
It deep cleans: It fit comfortably over the palm of your hand and multi-textured surfaces help gets your brushes clean. Super easy and quick!
A clean brush is EVERYTHING. And if you have a little bit more money, I'd suggest that you get the Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Gel for Brushes ($13.49 CAN). It's also good to note that this gel is dermatologist tested. Plus has no alcohol or phthalates.
How to use:
A) Slip the palette over your palm. Put a drop of the Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Gel for Brushes on the cleansing palette. Add warm water to the palette.
B) Swirl brush on the multi-textured surfaces until clean.
C) For drying, rest your brushes across the tool or using your favourite drying method.
This is after ONE wash!
