Clean Sweep: How To Clean Your Make-Up Brushes With Sebamed

Yup, it’s that time of the week to sweep clean and start again…and a great place to start? Well, why not your make-up brushes? Your skincare game may be strong. Your make-up may be on fleek. But these are not two entirely separate entities, our fair fillies. Oh no! In reality, the two things are very interconnected and can impact on each other.  Skin health can be effected by make-up choices and vice versa. That’s why brush hygiene is of utter importance to the face-based fashionista. “Hold on!”, we hear you cry, “We wash our brushes weekly!”. Washing your brushes IS a very important step to flawless application to your skin in order to create a masterpiece. But as any artist worth their Mac Velvet Teddy lipstick knows, in order to create said masterpiece, the foundation to which it is applied to is just as important. Yes, good skin makes for the best foundation, before actual foundation! Sometimes what we choose to wash our makeup brushes in can be what upsets the canvas of our skin. So click this way and discover what we are using that has knocked spots off the competition…and our skin too…it’s time for a clean sweep fillies!
