Hi there lovelies, I got this gigantic brush collection online recently. I've been researching the different types, shapes and sizes through beauty guru's on YouTube. I can't wait to use the eye shadow brushes for creating smokey effects.
What I found out though was that you should wash your new brushes. We all know you should wash your brushes that are covered in makeup, every week or so, but I was new to washing brand new brushes. The reason you need to wash your new brushes is to, get rid of stray hairs that have come away from the glue, get rid of chemicals and dirt that may have been picked up in the factory and to make them softer.
It's really simple to wash them. All you need to do is use a washing up liquid that you would use for the dishes. This gets rid of bacteria and is gentle and soft on the bristles. Also, it's cheaper than brush cleaners an does the same job. Wet the brush under the tap and then swirl it in washing up liquid on the palm of your hand. Voila, you've lovely new brushes!
Do you have any tips and tricks for makeup brushes?
