When something works SUPER well for me and I get so excited about it, I like to share it with my friends. You guys are my friends, right? Then I'll share!
Confession: I had never cleaned my makeup brushes before. EVER. I have had some of these makeup brushes since middle school. That's, like, at least 13 years. How old are you in middle school again? I can't remember. But approximately 13 years. Can we still be friends? Please? I just didn't really think I needed to. There's two things I draw from this:
1) That's disgusting and they should been cleaned long ago. Like long ago. I take such good care of my face. I use a Clarisonic to make sure it gets extremely clean. I use a PMD Personal Microderm so I can keep the fine lines away. I use Estee Lauder DayWear Lotion with SPF because I've tried all kinds of lotions and it's just the best. And then I put brushes all over my face that were dirty! Oops.
2) It's important to buy quality brushes because they last forever. It's pretty impressive that I've had some of these brushes since I started wearing makeup. If you invest in good ones, they will last you for years and years and years. Case in point.
I got this Bobbi Brown full coverage makeup brush about 8 months ago and I love it. It is extremely high quality. I got it to use with my Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation which I highly recommend. I had used a Clinique powder for years but I noticed it would be gone by the end of the day and my face looked washed out. I also use this Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for lips and cheeks as my blush and the combo of these two last the entire day and fixed my problem! These two new products are actually why I decided that I needed to clean my makeup brushes. They are creams instead of the powders that I had always used and so they stick to the brushes and eventually just get caked on. What was a girl to do?
