Yesterday I went to the doctor and got three surprise shots.
I got a shot for hepatitis, my second meningitis, and my second gardasil. (Gardasil hurt..)
My arm is sore ;-; and I feel like I can hardly use it. Tomorrow I have to go get blood taken for a cholesterol test since my mom has high cholesterol. (Thanks, Mom D:) So I have to not eat for twelve hours.
Now onto brush cleaning.
I don't know about you, but I always feel so much better after I clean my brushes.
I see all the make-up rinse off them and I just feel a lot better knowing I can use them on my face without all the excess make-up and germs.
What I do when I clean my brushes is I run them under luke-warm water and then use baby shampoo to clean them.
I'm the type of person who likes to see the natural color of the brush after I wash, so sometimes I have to rinse and wash repeatedly to see these results. I have tried semi-harsh soap with extra virgin olive oil which really made them look clean, but the olive oil stuck in the brushes, which lead to me having to wash them repeatedly to get it out. In the end, it probably did more harm than good.
This is not a set routine and I'm always open to suggestions! So feel free to leave your favorite method in the comments. (:
My dirty brushes (Coastal Scents)
How I dry my brushes:
This may look kind of "ghetto" but I find it to be an efficient way to allow my brush to be placed downwards to dry.
I take a paper plate and tape it to a flat surface, in this case I used my dry erase board that is leaning against my wall.
Then, I tape my brushes to the paper plate.
(If you end up trying this, test your brushes to make sure it won't leave any sticky residue)
I know there's better ways to do this, but I find this works for me and I'd rather not try searching for something else that might not even work or possibly works the same.
Thanks for reading!
