I’ve always stressed skincare on I Sort of Beauty. Better skincare means less makeup. However, if you don’t have a great skincare routine in place and enjoy wearing more makeup than the average office chick, I suggest making sure your beauty tools have a routine of their own. Every week (or every two weeks if I’m feeling lazy), I wash my brushes thoroughly and store them in an area where they aren’t exposed to dust and dirt. Having a system in place for your beauty tools is super important because if you take care of your tools, it’s less likely you’ll breakout or have a bad reaction to the brushes that you are using. Plus, as a rule of thumb, you should always clean anything before putting it on your face.
My new favorite cleanser is one that I use for my beautyblender, but have started using on my brushes as well. Blendercleanser is a clear liquid cleanser that is great for removing foundation and powder from all beauty tools. It’s a lavender-scented cleanser that eliminates bacteria, dirt, and oil that can accumulate over time… or over 2 weeks if you have my cleaning schedule. (Retail: $17.95)
Squeeze small amount of blendercleanser onto soiled areas of the beautyblender/brush. Lather and rinse well. Repeat if needed. Dry with a soft cloth, and let it air dry in a contained area free of dirt and dust.
