Wash your fucking make up brushes.

I posted a blog about washing your face, and now I am posting a blog about washing your make up brushes. Washing your brushes is just as important as washing your face. Think about it. Your face has oil. You put your brushes on your face. Then your brushes get the oil from your face on the bristles. If you don’t wash your brushes, then your getting that oil and bacteria into your make up and back onto your face again. Then you get acne. Nobody wants acne. It’s unsightly. So if you have make up brushes and want to know how to clean them so they aren’t squalid germ infested monstrosities, keep reading.

Deep Cleaning- There are two different kinds of ways to clean your brushes. Deep cleaning and spot cleaning. Deep cleaning is when you thoroughly wash your brushes. I usually do this three times a week. Maybe more, depending. The way I like to do this is by using baby shampoo. It’s super gentle and cleans your brushes well. Anyways, this is what you do.  Get your brushes together and go to think sink of your choice. Put that water on lukewarm/cold water, because hot water will damage the hair follicle.  This also applies to your hair.  Rinse with cold water. Helps keep your hair nice. Anyways, back to the brush washing. Wet the bristles and pour some baby shampoo into the palm of your hand. Then, wash the brush very gently. Rinse thoroughly.  Also, try to keep the water on the bristles only. If you get the water on the handle, it will seep into the ferrule and cause the brush hairs to rot and fall out. Lay out to dry.

 

Spot Cleaning- Same basic concept, except you use brush cleanser. Use M.A.C’s. It’s the best out there. Rinse them afterwards though.

PROTIP: For wax based products (lipsticks, concealers, etc) use olive oil to help break up the product.

 

Green Fucking Make-Up. Yeah.

Fuck yeah this is my troll make up. It’s actually pretty simple to do, but you’re a fuck up so don’t try to re-create this look.

Things you’ll need:

Eye:

M.A.C Bitter eyeshadow

M.A.C Sassy Grass eyeshadow (From the Dare to Wear collection)

M.A.C Bottle Green eyeshadow (PRO shade)

M.A.C On The Hunt Super Slick Liquid Liner

M.A.C If It Sparkles pigment (From Alice+Olivia collection)

Too Faced Shadow Insurance

Urban Decay’s 24/7 liner in Zero

Face:

MAKE UP FOREVER HD Foundation

M.A.C Prep+Prime face

M.A.C Select Sheer powder

M.A.C Beauty Powder in Oh So Fair (Venomous Villains)

M.A.C pigment in If It Sparkles (Alice+Olivia)

M.A.C Bronzer in Golden

Illamasqua blush in Katie

Lips:

Red lip liner of your choice

M.A.C Viva Glam 1

M.A.C Viva Glam Cyndi

M.A.C Heartless (Venomous Villains)

M.A.C Toxic Tale (Venomous Villains)

MAKE UP FOREVER Intense Artist Rouge number __ (The Moulin Rouge lipstick)

Okay, first prime your fucking eyelids. Then, put a piece of tape next to your eye at an angle. You need this to make the sharp line that you see in the picture. Now pack Bitter on your lid with your 239. Then take your 217 and put Bottle Green in your crease. Don’t blend it up to high. This is just for adding a bit of depth to your crease. Then take you stupid 224 and put Sassy Grass over Bottle green and also above it. You can bring it up pretty high. Then take a highlighting brush or whatever and use If It Sparkles as your damn highlight. Take your 219 and put bitter on the inner corner and your lower lashline. Now line your eyes with the liquid liner. Wing it out. If you make a mistake, then wash your make up off and give up. Line your upper and lower waterline with black liner.

If you didn’t do your foundation already, do it. Then using the 187 put Katie on the apples of your cheeks. Blend it back using Oh So Fair beauty powder. Contour with whatever the fuck you use to contour with. I use M.A.C’s Golden bronzer. If you don’t have it, hang yourself. Use If It Sparkles as a cheek highlight.

Now the lips are really complicated, so just do a normal red lip. I use so many reds because I contour my lips and I don’t want to explain it.

Kay, now your done. I hope it looks like shit on you.

How to recreate:

Prime your eyes with UD’s Primer Potion. Put it everywhere, lid, crease, inner corner, brow bone, lower lash line. Then, put B (greasepaint stick) all over the lid. Don’t use too much or it will crease and you’ll look like a hot mess. Which is not the look we’re going for. Then, using your 239 (or any paddle shader brush) pack Blue Flame over the lid. Don’t sweep it on, or you’ll get fallout all over your fucking face. Once again, this is a smokey eye and not an “I slept in my make up and am hung over” eye.

Now, take your 217 or a similar brush and mix The Right Smoke and Jynx together. Place this in your crease, blend with back and fourth motions. Now, take Loaded and do the same thing, putting it over Jynx and The Right Smoke. If it looks a little messy clean up the edges by taking your 275 and blending it out with your face powder or a skin tone eye shadow. Make sure the eye shadow is in YOUR skin tone. Then put Sweetjoy on the brow bone with a blending brush of your choice. Line your lower lash line with Float on By eye kohl and with your 219 put Blue Flame over it. Wipe off your 219 really well and put UD’s Polyester Bride on your inner corner. If you haven’t already, tight line with Zero or a black eyeliner of your choice. Also line your waterline. Line your eye with Signature Blue Super Slick Liquid Liner. Put on your false lashes. I used Red Cherry lashes number 28.

Now for the face. If you didn’t do your foundation already, do it. I use M.A.C Prep+Prime Skin. Then concealer, foundation, powder, etc. Then contour. I use my 168 and Golden to do this. If you don’t know how to contour then go kill yourself. Or look it up youtube. Preferably the first one. Then using the 187, put Bite Of An Apple on the apples of your cheeks. To figure out where the apples of your cheeks are, just smile. Highlight with Truth and Light Magically Cool Liquid powder. Then put your fucking lipgloss on. Then your done.

Potential dupes for some of these products are:

Deep Truth from M.A.C in place of The Right Smoke

Also, for Blue Flame. The Other Mineralize eyeshadow from Venomous Villains, I think it was She Who Dares, the blue side might work.

UD’s Binge 24/7 liner for B greasepaint stick.

NYX’s African Queen for Hot House

Will post more dupes as I find them.
