Always store the brushes upright or flat

Never store your brushes facing down i.e bristles facing down otherwise the shape of the brush will get completely destroyed. You can store them laid out flat in a tray/box or upright (bristles facing up) in a stand. I generally use pen stands on my desk for keeping my brushes – they are easy to reach everyday!

 

Regular Washing

Brushes accumulate a lot of bacteria and germs and must be cleaned regularly! If you have breakout prone skin, then it is all the more important to clean everything that touches your face. Because microbes flourish in damp and warm environments, foundation/concealer brushes are more prone to bacterial buildup. Dirty brushes that can lead to eye infections, breakouts etc. so clean your brushes every week and if possible more often.

Guerlain Parure de Lumiere Foundation

The foundation is really easy to blend and gives a beautiful naturally glowing, luminous finish to the skin. Its not the best one for oily skin as my T-zone gets shiny fairly quickly if I don’t prime but I just love its finish so much! Its one of the those amazing foundations that look great in person and in pictures. The coverage is about medium,  I’ve worn it in THIS post most recently. I like pairing this with the Clinique Superprimer in Universal. *Pictured here : tester size (not the actual size).

 

 

Clinique Superprimer for face : Universal

This is a primer that does it all – it softens the imperfections, makes the skin smoother, helps foundation glide on easier and keeps my foundation fresh for a longer time. I love that it doesn’t feel too silicon-y, too wet, or too dry – it has the perfect balanced texture! If there’s one thing its not too good at, it is oil control so if you have a very oily T-zone like me (especially in the summers), you need a good mattifying powder to set your foundation. Price : Rs 1710
