The Sunday Post #1: Brush Cleaning


So today my brushes got a well deserved deep cleaning! The sun was shining and their little drying spot on my window sill and was perfect for drying them nicely so I though "what better time?".

I'm not as in to brushes as I used to be, I generally use my fingers to apply everything except blush, contour and highlight because not only is it easier but I don't tend to wear a great deal of make up on a day to day basis so my eye brushes rarely get a look in these days! Although having said that, I have a tutorial coming up soon so they'll be celebrating! haha!

I use a little selection of different products to clean various brushes and I have a little post lined up on that so I won't go into  a great amount of detail now but depending on how dirty they are: if they are relatively clean I will just use my Savon De Marseille Olive and then swill but if they are particularly grubby I will pre wash them with Dr. Bronner's Eucalyptus Castille Liquid Soap then condition with the former both of which I used today. I always wash them using cold water which makes the cleaning process a little longer but saves my brushes getting damaged.

As I write this the sky has clouded over and little tiny raindrops are flitting down so that's my cue to round this post up and go and rescue them from my window sill!
