How I Wash My Makeup Brushes

~ Makeup~

I wrote a post on this on my last blog and it was received well.  Makeup brush washing is probably one of the most boring rituals anyone who owns makeup has to do on a weekly basis.  Personally, I don’t bother spending the money on makeup brush washes specifically targeted to the beauty industry, instead I use baby shampoo which 1) is super affordable and 2) Washes makeup brushes to a treat

I take my brushes into the bathroom, fill the sink and squirt some baby shampoo into the palm of my hand.  I then swirl the brush into the shampoo until I see the brush going clean.  I lay out my brushes on a risen surface such as a window sile until they dry as leaving them elevated prevents any excess water running into the spine of the brush and damaging it.

Once I have finished I rinse the sink clean and pop my brushes into the tub I store them in ( which btw is from Oliver Bonas)

I’m left with clean makeup brushes that smell lovely!

My Top 3 Concealers

top 3 concealers

~ Beauty~

The very first makeup product I purchased was a concealer I’m sure it was an oily concealer stick from Rimmel that was far too orange for my skin tone and instead of concealing the blemishes I had made them more visible.  Since then I’ve been better at finding concealers that cover my imperfections and relatively match my skin tone * fist pump’s air*

The Revlon Colour Stay is a good drugstore choice. I love it because it actually stays on my face all day even when I’ve been running around town.  This is therefore a good concealer for those with oily skin and it has yellow undertones which mean that it is a good under eye concealer as well.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer is a higher end concealer which is also a good pick.  I like that you get a lot of product on the spooly which means you can usually just use that without having to use more product.  It is a creamy consistency and a nice concealer however, I think what the drugstore have to offer is just as good.

Finally, my favourite and long time friend the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer.  This in my opinion is the best of these 3 concealers and funnily enough is the cheapest.  I find that because I am so pale the colour match for me is perfect, again its really creamy and high coverage for both under eyes and blemishes.  I like to dot some of this on my face blend it in with a sponge for an easy fresh makeup look.
