Make up Brush Cleanser : A Cheap Solution

17 Feb

While I’m at it, I might as well do a quick post on cleansing make-up brush the cheaper way. My first make-up brush was MAC 190, and yes, the MAC staff did try to persuade me to buy the cleanser as well…and yes, she was successful :p . I must admit that I didn’t quite like the cleanser, it was an effort to remove the foundation off the brush especially when I have kept it for days after use. I found that soaking the brush for a good 10 minutes helped but to soak it, you do need quite a lot of the cleanser. And yes, the cleanser is pricey and now that I have quite a number of brushers ( and been washing it more frequently) the cleanser is likely to rip me off my money (I might as well use the money on myself rather than my brushes!)

Foundation Brush

9 Feb

Hi ladies,

This is just a quick review on my foundation brushes. Some of them are almost 9 years old and yet the bristles are as new and the handles are sturdy still. The labels may have worn off but otherwise the brushes are still in good shape. I bought 2 brushes (not included in the photo) at a local bazaar , but really the quality is like night and day although they are so similar in appearance, but of course so much cheaper in price. Certainly, there are other ways of applying foundation e.g fingers, sponge but if brush is your favourite tool, then buying a good, high quality one would be an investment. It really does last a very long time. Some make up artist have had their brushes for 2-3 decades! Errr…you dont really need as many (I had a secret dream of becoming a makeup artist… :P)
