This is the 2nd installment in my series Worst Beauty Blogger Ever. If you missed the beginning, check out my favorite beauty products.
I've read on blogs, and even in my textbooks, that makeup brushes are supposed to be washed regularly. Supposedly, stuff like germs and dead skin and bits of makeup gets stuck inside the brushes, but a good cleansing will make them fresh and new and not gross again.
But I have a shameful secret to share. I've never, in my 21 years, washed my makeup brushes.
You may scold me now, but it's really not that bad when you think about it, because, you see, I don't own any makeup brushes.
Actually, I lied. I own this one.
I found it somewhere in the deep recesses of the drawers of my vanity. I don't know where it came from. I think it may have been my mom's at one point. And I've never washed it. But I really can't even remember the last time I've used it, either. I think it's a blush brush, but the real beauty bloggers can correct me if I'm wrong.
So, I guess what I wanted to say here is that washing your makeup brushes seems like a reasonable idea. Germs, dead skin--those are not nice things. But makeup brushes are highly unnecessary in the first place, so if you want to get out of cleaning yet ONE MORE THING....just don't use them. If you want rosy cheeks at this time of year, just run around outside in the snow for a little while, and you'll get the effect you desire. If you want a bronzed look in the summertime--try mowing the lawn and see what happens. Personally, I'm totally fine with the pale look all year round.
