2 Quick Tips!

Hi there! Remember me? I used to be cool and blog all the time, then my camera collapsed and I have been missing in action since? Yeah, well, I'm still here, and I haven't forgotten about how much I love to blog and the wonderful people that read what I write :)

I will have to make do with what I have at the moment - iPhone and laptop cameras - until I get a new camera or steal my boyfriend's.

On to the main scope of the post - before I head to bed, two quick little tips that I put in practice every once in a while:

1. The Problem: White/light haired brushes that never really go back to white no matter how hard you cleanse.
It always bothers me when I can't get the bristles looking nice again. I find that even thorough cleansing with my brush cleaner doesn't get some brushes bright and clean anymore. This especially applies if you use brushes such as the MAC 187, 188 (stippling brushes) or a flat foundation brush like the MAC 190. Some product traces can still be seen.

A SOLUTION: Try an oil-based makeup remover on them. I was amazed at how my MAC Cleanse-Off Oil got my 187 brush back to bright white in seconds. It also got all the traces of lodged foundation out of my 190, stains out of my 217, etc. Give it a whirl and let me know if it worked for you!

2. The Problem: A button-up shirt in your closet that you don't want to throw out, but that looks weird when you try to button it up and wear it by itself.
I don't own many button up shirts, but the ones that I do, I feel awkward in.

A SOLUTION: Wear them over a t-shirt, unbuttoned. This works best with non-white button-up shirts. I have a couple of strange coloured silk shirts that have accumulated in my closet over time and I wear them as "jackets" instead. I'm sure I'm not the only one :)

That's enough from me for now.
Let me know what your quick tips are in "sticky" situations.
Take care and have a great week, everyone!
