Before I took this picture of my makeup organization system, I decided to give my make-up brushes a wash.
I vaguely remember a friend telling me I needed to do that every now and then, so I decided to do a little research.
I found this very helpful little article, and in the course of reading discovered that I should be washing my makeup brushes once a week!
Oh, my stars and garters! I think I’ve maybe washed them once…ever!!
Now I’m just grossed out…
But, now that I know, I’ll get right on that…
If you don’t want to whip over to the article I linked to, here it is in a nutshell:
1. Run your brush under lukewarm water to rinse it out a bit.
2. Pour a drop of gentle shampoo (or baby shampoo) into a bowl and fill with lukewarm water. Swirl the brush in it.
3. Keep rinsing until the water is clear.
4. Dry flat on a towel.
