That got me thinking, why do some days you get ready feeling really good about yourself and others....not so much?
There are many scenarios - bad hair day or good hair day!, not enough sleep which means bags under the eyes or great dreams with plenty of sleep and a happy disposition. Boring old clothes or brand new outfit! Or how about dirty make-up brushes. Have you thought about that?
How many of you clean your make-up brushes?I do but not regularly and when I do clean them it sure makes a difference! It's amazing really. I'm sure there are plenty of fancy make-up brush cleaners out there but I just use my color safe shampoo. I can always tell when I need to clean them....it hurts to put my make-up on. I use Bare Minerals Makeup so it's powder everything. When the brush starts scratching my face I give them a good washing in the sink with shampoo and warm water. I let them air dry and wha-la! They are soft, shiny and good as new. That's a money saver too because good brushes aren't cheap these days. Today when I put my makeup on I noticed I didn't have to use as much (money saving tip #2) and I looked better in the end. It's no miracle but i'll take it!
