How I make my own brush cleaner!
As many of you know I have assisted makeup artist Holly Silius a few times now, I stole this trick from her actually because it was completely genius, really easy to carry round in your kit (or even your makeup bag if you are staying somewhere overnight) and also it’s so good for your brushes! Being a makeup artist my brushes are cleaned sometimes up to 3 times a week, and more depending on how successful you become. If you are using alcohol based products to clean your brushes, although it works, overtime the alcohol literally eats away at your brushes and you have to throw them out and get new ones. So here is a tip to get clean shiny and healthy brushes! 1. Take a small container, you can use a sample pot, an eye cream pot or even a portable salad dressing pot that you can get from your local supermarket! 2. Clean the pot out, and scrape a fancy soap bar in. Holly recommends the ones you get in hotels but a Dove or Nivea will work just the same. 3. Add a little bit of water in and push the soap down with the scraper, mix them together until you get a paste (this will set overnight don’t worry) 4. In the morning you are ready to clean your brushes! Just wet the brush, swirl it around the pot, swirl it in your hand to really saturate the brush, and then rinse and squeeze gently with your hands removing all soapy suds 🛁
There are some looks that never get old. The beauties of the past show us that looks always re-appear and NEVER let you down.
Bangs or Fringe: Anna Karina and Audrey Hepburn rocked the bangs both chunky and baby. It always gives off a retro- sophistication. Plus, up do’s always looks so much more put together.
Black Liner: Sophia Loren with her extreme cat-eye to Brigitte Bardot’s smudged around the rim liner, black liner is classic (no matter the shape.) Even just a touch on the lower lash line adds fullness and shape.
Strong Feature: Dorothy Dandridge’s strong angled brow and Marilyn Monroe’s signature red lips can carry a look on their own. Having a focus feature allows you simplify a look by having one strong point to notice. Good brows aren’t a new trend, learn from Dorothy’s arch. Study it. Live it.
pennold: Here’s a before and after of me and @louteasdale having a pampering sesh with @thebodyshop face masks, while getting glammed up for the evening. I gave Lou a dark smoky eye and applied the Himalayan charcoal and British Rose masks to prep our skin. These superfood face masks smell amazing, make your skin feel great, are cruelty free/vegetarian! To enter the #daretomask contest, just share your goofy face mask selfies of you or you & your besties getting your faces in the good stuff!
Okay buckle up kids. I’m about to expose everyone.
We know Taylor Swift and Harry used to date. Harry and Kendall might be a thing again. Kendall had a thing with JB who we all know had an on and off again relationship with Selena Gomez. Selena is besties with Taylor. Justin might be dating Hailey Baldwin now who is good friends with Kendall. Selena used to date Nick Jonas the same time Taylor dated Joe. Joe and Gigi Hadid dated for a bit even though she is besties with T-Swift. Gigi might be seeing Zayn now and Zayn used to be in 1d. Which brings us back to Hendall. H dated Cara Delevigne in the past who is best friends with Kendall. I know I’m missing something… Oh! Ed and Harry are good friends and Ed and Ellie used to date (they are both also friends with Taylor of course). But Ellie also had a thing with Niall. And Niall might possibly be dating Selena but don’t forget that Justin and Niall were or are “friends”. Man I’m exhausted. But here we go again. Harry and Caroline dated for a while. Caroline is best friends with Lou Teasdale who is 1d’s makeup artist and friend. Caroline is also friends with Nick Grimshaw who is also good friends with Harry. Grimmy and Daisy are friends as well and Daisy confirmed that her and Harry had a thing at one point. We’re jumping all over the place here but stay with me. Harry and Nadine Leopold dated for a while. Harry was also rumored to have “hung out” with Sara Sampaio who is “friends” with Nadine. Harry was on Georgia Fowler’s snapchat story looking pretty comfortable in that robe. And on Halloween we know that Nadine, Sara, and Georgia all hung out. So long story short, Hollywood is one big dating circle and everyone knows everyone and they all date in a group. The end.
