    So, as you can tell, I'm a make up expert.. but I do know a thing about this make up clean thing.

    What I do: rinse with warm water the brush entirely, but focus on the edges where the make up is touching the brush.

    Then swirl it in a bowl of shampoo water (baby shampoo or something equally mild). I use a bowl like this with ribbed insides.

    Then rinse it again until all the shampoo is out, and use a cloth to press and blot out as much moisture as possible. Then stick it in a place which gets a bit of wind (a small fan, outside, etc.) and it's usually done in a day or so. I usually forget them a few days in a row so ... I dunno the dry times.

    So, wondering a few things, for those of you who use makeup brushes:

    1.) How do you guys wash your brushes?
    2.) What cleansers/products do you use to wash 'em?
    3.) Do you wet the whole thing, or just the ends?
    4.) Approx how long does it usually take to dry?
    5.) What position do you dry it in?
    6.) How often do you wash your brushes?


    Thx in advance!

    1.) How do you guys wash your brushes? Lukewarm water and mild shampoo
    2.) What cleansers/products do you use to wash 'em? Baby shampoo with a drop of tea tree oil and I use one of these silicone things too.
    3.) Do you wet the whole thing, or just the ends? Whole thing
    4.) Approx how long does it usually take to dry? I leave them overnight
    5.) What position do you dry it in? Lay them on a microfiber cloth
    6.) How often do you wash your brushes? Once a month or so.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Tried a new mascara - I really like it. The line has a dumb name, but the product itself is great.

    Physician's Formula Sexy Booster Cat Eye Collection Mascara
    Sexy Booster™ Cat Eye Collection Mascara - Ultra Black - Physicians Formula



    It doesn't create much of a cat eye effect, but that's fine. Lashes stay soft, not crispy. This mascara's much like the PF Organic Wear one in earlier thread posts; much of the same ingredients. I find this has better staying power, that's all. The other one runs easily in rain, or if you perspire. Stung my eyes, a bit. This one is water-resistant, I think. Comes right off when you wash your face, though.

    Here's the critical question: is it CVS friendly? Because I have $5.50 in extrabucks that expires next week.

    Yeah, that's a common deal w/PF products at CVS. Did you enroll in their Beauty Club? You can do it online. Basically, for every $50 you spend in cosmetics/skin/hair care stuff, you get $5 CVS Extrabucks back, along with whatever deal is going on at the time (like, if you'd reached the $50 mark in your spending when you bought that mascara, you'd get the $7 deal, as well as $5 more in Beauty Club Rewards Extrabucks). This is all separate from the quarterly Extrabucks, as well. I almost never pay full price for products there, at this point.

    New favorite:

    Smashbox Be Legendary Matte Lipstick

    It costs a packet but it's got really vibrant, vivid color and great staying power. I can get away with not touching up even after eating.



    My favorite shade is Jam On It, which is a deep, plummy, raspberry shade. Infrared is the bomb, too.

    I bought bronzer today (I maybe went on a makeup splurge accidentally) and put it on my face. I look sunburnt. What am I doing wrong? How do I make it look good (or normal)?

    Is it possible it's too dark? What I would do is mix powder foundation with the bronzer and see if that looks any better.

    I really like this bronzer - NYX When A Leopard Gets A Tan:

    It's crazy cheap and it's shiny and pretty and golden.
