When is the last time you cleaned out your make-up box or bag? That bacterial orgy is nasty, for reals. Time to handle your biznass.
First things first, sort through your collection and liberally toss anything falling into one of the following categories: 1) products not used within the last three months, 2) mascara older than three months, 3) old, cracked, raggedy-ass products, sponges, tools, or brushes. Think of it this way – you are making room for a few new treats just in time for the change of season.
Depending on your personal set up, several approaches could work. Throw your make-up bag in the laundry, or scrub your box with hot water and an abrasive cleaner like Mrs. Meyers. As for your brushes, a few drops of mild detergent or shampoo in a big bucket of soapy warm water usually does the trick. Rinse thoroughly, and take time to dry your brushes. Shine the outside of your compacts with anti-bacterial wipes. Trust, you won’t regret initiating August with a clean kit and a fresh face.
