How To Clean Makeup Brushes

Where would I be without my makeup brushes? These simple tools make my life so much easier by allowing me to apply any makeup look I desire quickly and easily. I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again and again; so much of how your makeup comes out has to do with the brushes you use! Needless to say, brushes need care. They’re usually quite an investment, an luckily they can last you years, but you have to take good care of them to make them last as long as possible and get the best results when using them. The no.1 thing you need to do in your brush maintenance is clean them well on a regular basis. I’m going to show you how to properly clean makeup brushes!

My Favourite Playlists

Whenever I do a Q&A, I always get questions about what music I’m listening to at the moment. You guys seem to be very interested in that, haha!

KIKO Lasting Gel Eyeliner

It’s been so long since I last used a gel eyeliner! I’m pretty sure it’s been years, at one point I just switched to liquid and never went back. Until I started using the Benefit They’re Real! Push-Up liner, which is a gel eyeliner in a liquid liner-type packaging, and became hooked on the formula. I came to miss the matteness and longevity of gel, liquid liners just don’t provide enough of that. A short while back I was doing a bride’s makeup and found I needed more control and precision when I did her winged eyeliner, so I decided to re-visit my old friend, the gel eyeliner. I hopped over to the KIKO store and grabbed the KIKO Lasting Gel Eyeliner.
