The Secret to Cleaning Your Makeup Brushes!


Raise your hand if you know how to properly wash your makeup brushes.
crickets....crickets....
Ok, so we are not alone on this one! Merely rinsing our makeup brushes with water after using it has proven to be a not-so-effective way to keep the brushes clean for its next use. We finally decided to turn to the beauty experts about how to best clean off our makeup brushes and we were exposed to literally the simplest way to clean our brushes: baby shampoo! Here is a quick rundown:

Step 1: In one hand, pour a quarter size amount of baby shampoo into the palm of your hand.
Step 2: Turn your water faucet on until the water is lukewarm.
Step 3: Using your empty hand, grab your dirty makeup brush and begin to swirl the brush into the baby shampoo as you hold it under the sink water. You will see the makeup start to pour off into the sink from your hands.
Step 4: After you are done cleaning your makeup brush, lay a paper towel or cloth towel onto the sink counter making sure that one end of the paper towel hits the edge of the counter. Place the wet makeup brushes on the towel so that it is hanging over the edge of the counter. Allow the water from the brush to drip dry (place a towel on the floor where the water is dripping to avoid a wet puddle on the floor).

Another easy and simple alternate to keep your makeup brushes extra clean is by investing in a brush cleanser. You can find a good brush cleanser at MAC Cosmetics or Estee Lauder.

Emerald Brushes

Makeup Brushes: Sephora.

Yes, we are among the giddy people who anxiously await Pantone's Color Of The Year announcement, which is emerald for 2013But, equally exciting, is seeing the creations made by the Sephora + Pantone Universe each year.  As you may know, the two companies collaborate on a makeup collection annually, in honor of the chosen color.  We weren't sure what to expect for emerald makeup...emerald lipstick?!  Instead, Sephora has created a beautiful collection of vivid eye makeup, as well as nail polish and makeup tools-- and we love it!  Definitely chic, and perfect for 2013.  TSS It Girl, Alyx, tried out the makeup brush set in the collection.  The verdict?  TSS approved... plus, brushes in a pretty color do seem to make everything more fun!

Excited to meet the rest of our It Girls, and learn more about Alyx from University of Colorado Boulder?  Our big It Girl announcement is coming later this week, and we can't wait to share it with you!
