I am not really an outdoorsy or party kind of a person. I like to stay home more. Going to the mall is perhaps the most action I get on my weekends. Though I always prefer staying in bed and read a book, watch a movie or write instead.
One of my other favorite activities to do on a weekend is give my makeup brushes a thorough cleaning. I like to give my brushes a proper wash after a week (if I am applying makeup daily) or at least after every two weeks. It really depends on how much they’ve been used. Sometimes I don’t give them a wash for a month if I haven’t used them at all.
I am very fuss free when it comes to cleaning. I like to go for the easiest method possible which does the job as well. I use Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Cleanser for this purpose. I usually just take a brush, put it under the tap of warm/hot water facing downwards so that water doesn’t get into its core or change its shape. Then I just take a bit of cleanser in my palm and swirl the brush on it and then wash it facing downwards. I do this whole thing one more time or sometimes two more times if the product doesn’t come out in one go. I repeat this for all the brushes.
Now that the brushes are clean I wipe and swirl them gently on a towel and keep them to dry on the table in a cup. While I am doing other errands I pass by them and caress them every now on then so when they dry they are back to their original shape.
It’s weird but cleaning my brushes is perhaps my favorite chore so far because what’s better than super tidy brushes that provide you super flawless finish the coming week. 😉
