Beauty Corner: Makeup Tool Maintenance
If you have skin like mine, when you go to sleep with a face full of makeup Rudolph-The-Red-Nosed-Reindeer is staring at you in the mirror when you wake up. Yet even if you’re washing your makeup away every night, you should also be cleaning your tools everyday to keep your zit-happy alter ego at bay.
- Daily Brush Cleaner: It only takes a few minutes after you apply your makeup to disinfect your brushes with a daily sanitizing spray. I use the E.l.f. Daily Brush Cleaner, and it leaves my brushes clean and fresh for the next day.
- Weekly Brush Shampoo: You can buy special makeup brush shampoo from a variety of places, but I use regular hair shampoo to get the makeup, dirt and built-up grime out; it works just as well. Try Suave Almond and Shea Butter Shampoo.
- Makeup Bag or Roll-up Wipes: Make sure not to forget about your plastic casings or makeup bag and roll-up. You can bet wherever your tools hang out there is going to be a build up of makeup and dirt. Try Simple Facial Wipes to clean up.
