Hey Girls! So the reason I bring up this subject is because I have seen some of the brushes you are using! If your brush hurts your face and if it's missing half the hairs on it, throw it away! You can't save that brush anymore. If it looks like a worn out broom with its bristles pointing every direction, throw it away! Lastly, if you have had your brushes for a few years, throw them out! I think you get my point. These brushes collect so much bacteria throughout time, that if you do not wash them and clean them on a regular basis, you are putting that bacteria back into your skin which then causes breakouts and clogs your pores. If you use a foundation brush, try and wash it with gentle shampoo after every use. Powder and blush brushes are the most important applicators to keep clean. Shampoo them occasionally; but use Parian Spirit brush cleaner, Cinema Secrets brush cleaner or 99.9% alcohol in the interim. Try not to share your brushes as much as you may trust your friends, to avoid any breakouts, red-eyes, etc. I know that brushes can be expensive sometimes depending on which brand you get, but you can find a brand that works for you. What do the price differences mean? The more expensive brushes have softer hair and are made a little better which in turn last longer. You can find inexpensive brushes that are pretty decent for personal use at Naimie's Beauty Center. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thanks!
