How i clean my makeup brushes

Bonjour Ladies ...
This weekend was so busy for me due to the fact Mardi Gras has began here in Greece , which means a lot of going out and getting creative with your makeup and look in general. I also won the Zuneta competition for any of you who didnt see , i just want to say thank you for your support and that i am always supporting you all back. Just so you know . I decided i would do a how i clean my makeup brushes post as i think i always find it interesting to see what others do and learn tips and tricks. 

How i clean my makeup brushes.

You will need :

A gentle baby shampoo . 
Anti Bacterial Hand wash .
Some hot water .
A small tub/bucket .
A cloth. 

Firstly - I like to begin with  gathering my makeup brushes and in a small bucket filled with hot water , washing them with the baby shampoo , to get rid of the color stain .

Secondly- I get each makeup brush separately and i wash them with hot water whilst rubbing some anti bacterial soap on them to kill any bacteria , this step is so important to me especially if i have been using them on other people. 

Thirdly - I mold them into shape whilst squeezing any excess water out of them and i then get a cloth which i wrap them in and place on the radiator .

Last but not least- Unwrap them after a few hours or leave them overnight and your ready !!  


My leopard eyes .

The leopard eyes were so easy to do yet looked so creative , if you can go ahead and do them ! On Thursday it was crazy in my town , everyone was on the street and partying and looking at the events that were going on. 

I also got through the post my FREE  nail gem wheel from www.alcosmetics.com

Nails of the week 

Its very simple but i love the look .

Thank you all for reading , let me know if you clean your makeup brushes the way i do and if not let me know how you do them ?! What are you dressing up as, for Mardi Gras?! 
Kisses xo
