A clean makeup kit is extremely important, yet for some reason I let my bag turn black before I clean it out. Being in a good mood all weekend, I decided that for the sake of my skin, I should clean my brushes. I decided to give my whole bag a nice shine, and am now committing to cleaning my brushes at least once a week!
Notice the cloudy makeup bag? Fantastic cleaner took care of that!
The evidence that all of my containers needed cleaning.
A fresh makeup bag.
For my brushes (all Bare Escentuales), I use Sephora brand daily makeup brush cleaner. I love this stuff. After a good brush shampooing, I spray all of my brushes with it to get that new-brush feeling. After letting them air dry, all of my brushes are good as new and probably won't make me break out anymore.
