five essentials : caring for make-up brushes

Coco Chanel said, a girl should be two things: classy and fabulous. I have to say that I agree wholeheartedly with this statement. We tend to dress up for evenings out on dates and put on a little lipstick before heading out in town. We worry about what shade of eyeshadow would go great with your new sequined, crystal encrusted evening dress. One thing we are shamefully forgetful of are the make-up brushes. Your make-up and skin depends highly on your care for your make-up brushes. So I’ve put together five tips that will help you keep your skin healthy and clean. 
Dust or wipe off excess makeup from your brushes after using it. Lightly tap your brushes against a sink and then using a moist towel lightly pull at the brushes. Make sure not to pull too hard as you may ruin your brush. Build up cause brushes to lose effectiveness and bristles to break. 
Store your brushes in a case or bag to keep them dry and to prevent bust from building up. Most brushes come with a pouch, if not, consider using an eyeglass case. 
Keep you brushes in a flat or upright position to keep their shape. A misshaped brush loses its effectiveness.
Clean makeup brushes regularly using a cleaner. Or you can use a combination of handsoap and water. Put a little cleaner or soap and water in your hand and rotate your brush in a circular motion. Run under lukewarm water and lay flat to dry.
Replace brushes every three months or whenever you get new make-up. You do not want to make germs along to new make-up and brushes.
{c&é tip}
I use the e.l.f. make-up brushes. Not only are they high quality and effective brushes, but budget friendly. I can afford to throw them out once a month and purchase new brushes.
