Beauty Tip Tuesday: Cleaning up!

How to keep your brushes and combs nice and clean:

Run your comb through your brush and gently remove all of the hair strands.  Then, drop them in a sink filled with warm water and a dash of either baking soda or a drop of clarifying shampoo.  Let them soak for about 30 minutes.  Drain the sink and rinse your tools with fresh water, then let them air dry over night.

How to clean your makeup brushes:

Add a small drop of mild shampoo or brush wash to the palm of your hand.  Swish one brush at a time in the cleaner and rinse thoroughly with warm running water.  Remove all excess water from the brush and lay the brush on a flat surface to dry.  ( I suggest putting a towel down on a counter and laying brushes on top of the towel to absorb the moisture.)  Do NOT let the brushes dry standing up in a cup.- the water run down into the handle and loosen the hairs of the brush, causing shedding.
