Clean the brushes

Cleaning makeup brushes is as boring as cleaning the face after a party is. I love putting make up, getting dressed but I dread cleaning the face when I come back home tired. As we clean the face no matter how tired we are, we must also clean the brushes because this might give us acne break outs with other skin rashes on our faces. The brushes need to be cleaned in every 10 days or so. There are solutions available in the western markets but in Bangladesh, I haven’t seen anything like that yet.

Till then, cleaning like the old school way is the next best solution. I find it easy this way. Take 10 drops of hand wash with 2 drops of olive oil (this will condition the hair) in a ceramic plate. Take a little solution on the hair and rub the hair against your palm, till you see it cleaned properly. And wash the brush keeping the hairs down under running tap water. Place them on clean tissue paper first pat dry, then shift to a face towel and dry them well. After that I blow dry the brushes from distance so that the hairs don’t get burnt.

It is easy but tiresome but most of all very needed. I cleaned my brushes today, thus decided to write on it too. A clean make up brush helps set the makeup well and also keeps your face cleaner.

Hope all of you have a good week ahead after the long holiday. Ciao.
