My doll-ingggggggsssss!!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH for helping me reach 250 subscribers on YouTube over the weekend!!! I can’t even believe it!!! Your support is AMAZINGGGGG!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!! Thank you to everyone who supports my blog as well!!! It means so much to me!!! As shown in my Naked Taco photo lol, one lucky winner will receive a Naked Basics palette!!!
It is one of my fave palettes because it is compact for travel & perfect for both eyes and brows. I l ❤ that the palette is mostly matte. It also has one satin shade, called Venus, that is great for inner eye and brow highlights. The shades, Naked 2 & Faint are perfect shades for mixing a custom brow shade. This also means it is one last eye product to bring in your travel bag! Hope my giveaway winner loves it as much as I do (contest details located at end of this post). Also in this video I show you my $1 makeup brush cleaning taco thing-a-ma-jiggy GAMECHANGER!!!
This turquoise honey-combed silicon pad works on cleaning both dry and wet brushes! And drum roll please….it looks like a Tiffany’s brush cleaner for ONLY $1 from your local Dollar Tree or $.99 Store! They come in an array of colors. Some makeup cleaning pads can cost up to $30!!! I found mine in the cooking section at the Dollar Tree. Yep, it’s a silicon kitchen pot holder that I use for cleaning my makeup brushes. I use it 7 days a week for cleaning powder shadows from my dry brushes between each shadow change. This makes getting ready fast and convenient, and especially on days when my spare blending brushes are dirty.
I also like to give my brushes a thorough cleansing once a week. This makeup brush cleaning thingamajiggy really gets every speck of makeup off of my brush bristles, thanks to those honey-comb shaped grooves. And especially when I use makeup cleansing oils, like my favorite one from Nars, to wash the bristles.
Over time, soaps can just dry the bristles out, and this doesn’t feel so great on your skin. When you wash your brushes with an oil, it is important to get every speck of old makeup off and also every speck of the oil off of your bristles. Any oil residue will weigh your bristles down, and won’t let them perform properly. But when the oil is completely rinsed off properly, your bristles will be clean, germ-free, and moisturized. Oil helps preserve the longevity of your brushes.
That all said, you can clean your makeup brushes with it wet or dry, and also use it for its primary reason: to remove hot, baking dishes from the oven. lol. Or use it to rest your brush holders or hot coffees on while you get ready. It is flat like a thin pancake (or crêpe? lol) and looks so SLEEK on the vanity.
Also, you can roll your brushes up in this turquoise Tiffany’s looking taco for convenient travel purposes. It rolls up and folds over compactly. Simply secure with a hair tie or rubber band. #life #hacks
I just absolutely adore how bright and fresh it looks. When used as a cup holder, it literally saves me from spilling coffee on my brushes lol.
Since the running color theme of this thingamajiggy is turquoise, I had to wear my new Muskoka Nord Aquamarine Teepee necklace in the video. I love wearing it in support of our Native Americans. They need all of our help right now. NO DAPL!!! Looking forward to layering my Teepee necklace with my Muskoka Nord orange agate fish. I store them in my diy jewelry organizer. The fish is also Native American-art deco inspired. NO DAPL.
OH and leave it to me to set up a new background/lighting and nearly catch my new background on fire with my candle prop. OMG. Let’s just pretend that didn’t happen in my first video with my new background. LOL. If you are into candles, Stephen’s Candles (below) are heaven!! The best & yummiest candles I’ve ever used!
