People often wear makeup to enhance their look or to cover up something they do not like, and most times its to give people the illusion that we have perfect flawless skin. We constantly try to cover things up but don’t realize that we could be making it worse.

Whenever you don’t clean your makeup brushes. Your brushes begin to collet bacteria and germs which then leads to nasty infections on your skin.

    i’m the worst at cleaning my brushes within a “timely” manner. I usually use dish soap to get all the oils out but I’m going to try this!

    I’m pretty good at cleaning my brushes, I’m curious about that Amazon machine though!

  • Great post with many relevant points made. I think many women sometimes just don’t think about the transfer of bacteria from brushes to skin and therefore they don’t clean as often as they should.

  • I REALLLLY need to do this! I never clean my brushes (insert shame face), and I’m sure I’m doing my skin no favors! Thanks for the tip!
