When was the last time you washed your makeup brushes?

Ever wondered why you’re breaking out and nothing is helping? The answer could be because you aren’t washing your makeup brushes! Being the makeup fanatic I am, I do my best to clean them at least once a week. Plus it’s really simple! Get all your makeup brushes, sponges, and applicator all together. Run the brush part under luke warm water. Then take some Dawn dish soap and put some on a plate. Dip the makeup brush in the soap and then in your hand move the brush in circular motions. When the suds are completely white rinse the brush! That simple. Make sure to have the brush head pointed down on a towel to dry, that way the water can run out of it. It’s been said that you should clean your makeup brushes once a week, but as long as you do it 3-4 times a month you should be good!

My Favorite Winter Looks!

As much as I love fall fashion, winter is my favorite. During fall you’re stuck between the cold weather and warm weather, which might make it difficult. In the winter it’s purely just cold, simple as that. There are endless ways to create great winter outfits. You can layer, and layer, and layer! Simply by adding a scarf, vest, jacket, leg warmers, or hat you’re ready to go!

For winter I’ve been loving the all black look! It’s so classic, and simple and very easy to add your own personal touches to it. Black jeans or black tights are the way to go! You can add texture to the outfit by putting on a knit sweater, scarf, jacket, boots, or fun bag! The options are endless really.
