How to keep your brushes lasting forever
Every girl has experienced the moment when a make up brush is no longer the original shape. After multiple uses for several months they often times lose their natural shape. This is a major problem because what was once a precision brush is now a fluffy blending brush. Unfortunately, it's very common and easy to forget about properly taking care of your brushes. With proper care, extending the life of your makeup brushes is easy and achievable.
Brush guards are a sure way to maintain the shape of your makeup brushes and more importantly protect your investmest. Let's face it, brushes aren't cheap. Because they are reusable and will last you forever, brush guards are probably the cheapest but most valuable item in my kit.
HOW: I like to place the brush guards on while drying after each wash. They are also a good way to store brushes while traveling to photo shoots or even long distances.
This mesh-like polyester sleeve fits snug on your makeup brushes and shapes them to their original form as if they were like new again. It's an affordable investment that you will thank yourself for.
WHERE TO BUY: There are many different brands and manufactures but most are the same and universal. When I was shopping online it was a bit overwelming. But one day while at the mall I purchased my brush guards from Icing and found them on buy one get one free.
Even if you have a brush that's not in the best condition and is splayed out, wash and apply a brush guard over night while drying and see the difference...it's like magic!
I encourage everyone to invest in products that will always be the gift that keeps on giving. It's important to properly clean and protect your brushes. Regardless if you're using higher end or more affordable brushes, brush guards are a sure guarenteed investment. When you take care of your brushes they will take care of you.
