In a pinch, your face wash doubles as a brush cleanser!
I’ve been wearing makeup and cleaning brushes for a bazillion years and just figured this out, like, yesterday, so of course I had to tell ya. I wanted to wash my brushes and didn’t feel like digging through the mountain of boxes in my bedroom, so I tried this with a Korres face wash I had on hand, and it worked like a charm.
I do think this tip does have a small caveat, though. It should probably be a face wash that removes makeup, sunscreen and can cut through oil. I think something foamy is helpful, too, to remove any long-wearing bits and bobs of makeup from your brush bristles. I can’t imagine it working as well with something gentle, creamy and non-foaming, like Cetaphil cleanser, however if you try it and it works, you’ll have to let me know.
Building those muscles, day one
I watched this video about building your happiness muscles a while back, and so I’m trying a new exercise for the next two weeks.
Every day, I make a small note of two things I’m grateful for. No pressure at all to make it too deep, either. It can be as simple as being grateful for the sliced lemons in your water.
Anywho, today I’m grateful for YouTube workouts. It’s kind of mind blowing to push a few buttons and have access to any type of workout at any given time anywhere in the world. Back in the day I’d have to use DVDs, and my workouts would get so repetitive and boring. Not any more!
I’m also grateful for all the old trees in my neighborhood. They’re so beautiful.
If you feel like joining in, please feel free to jot down one or two things in the comments. It can be something as simple as your favorite socks. If it adds richness to your life in some small way, write it down.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Have a great day!
