Baby Johnson Cleans your Makeup Brushes

IMG_5365Cleaning your makeup brushes on a regular basis is an absolute must for many reasons.  After multiple uses, bristles begin to build up with residual makeup, which makes them less effective when it comes to application and they become a home for bacteria that will irritate your skin and cause breakouts.

Professional makeup artists usually clean their brushes after every use, but for us at-home users, every week is a good time, but again it depends on often you use them.

  • Step 1 You’ll need Baby Johnson and a fresh towel to lay the brushes on to dry. .
  • Step 2 Add Baby Johnson on to a surface , run your brush’s tip under lukewarm water and gently swirl the brush tip of a surface (a bowl). Tip: Never turn brushes up vertically — make sure they’re always facing downward — otherwise, water will weaken the glue that holds the bristles together.
  • Step 3 Once all the residue is completely gone, set your brush flat on the towel to dry.

Instead of using a bowl or the surface of my sink I’ve been using the Cleaning Mat by Sigma Beauty. I love it because it has 7 different textures to remove everything off your makeup brush without damaging the brush.

Silky Thick Groom

hairstyles-trends-2015-16 134f9fdbbec7b6ce70472ec774d72bedHair treatments, the most confusing. We are promised so many long lasting results. Formulas vary from silicone-based, to alcohol free, to natural, to curl enhancing, etc… I tried a couple of products that I believe helped in thicken my hair and have a long lasting shine. In this post I will share with you my top products along with some simple hair remedies you can try at home.

1- Kerastase Lumiere Liquid: It’s quite pricey, however it can last for a year since you just need one or two hair drops for all hair types. This serum gives extreme shine and is extremely weightless. When you spray it on your hand and put it on your hair you bareful feel anything. But you get the shine.

2-Kiehl’s Silk Groom Serum: It can pretty much straighten curly hair. You however have to apply it on wet hair before blow drying your hair as it also helps with minimizing tangles. This serum is mostly recommended for those with curly hair but can also work on any hair types as you can always put it on the tips of your hair for defrizzing.

3- Apple Cider Vinegar: Yes it stinks, but when you leave it in your hair for around 30 minutes before you shower, the silky shine you get is unbelievable. The smell will still remain after you wash it, but only you can smell it. For best results I apply apple cider vinigar on my hair, tie it and cover it with a plastic bag for hydrating effects. (please do not try if you have an irritation to vinigar).
