Cleaning your makeup brushes

A while ago I discussed taklon make up brushes and, specifically my new, expensive Hourglass ones with which I am replacing the Bobbi Brown ones I’d had for years and that were starting to show their age. If you use a foundation brush, it’s important to cleanse it after every use not least to prevent a build up of dirt and bacteria but also because a gunky foundation brush, clogged up with foundation goo is really, really icky, to use the technical term.

Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup

I tried a sample of Hourglass’s Veil Fluid Makeup at John Lewis recently and liked it a lot. It’s so much more expensive even than my previous Chanel Vitalumière but I’ve found the unexcitingly-named Beige to be a really good colour match for me at the moment.

I was lucky enough to be invited to the fabulous wedding of @emproji and @lukephilosophy last weekend. Agonising about what to wear, I came across this gorgeous dress from Bombshell. Even better news: they had my size and it was reduced! It would have been rude not to!

I know these doors are supposed to be the ultimate in high security but I despise them. I mean look how ugly they are! White UPVC, no definite sense of style nor era and the opening is both tiny and a trip hazard. How on earth are you supposed to… [more]

Excellent long read article.
