Well hello, sunshine! I hope you had a fab week and that your weekend is as beautiful as it is here.
If you’ve noticed that the site has been kind of sluggish when loading lately, or that it hasn’t loaded at all—I have to apologize to you. It seems that for one thing, we’ve outgrown the server we’re on (again), and also—our host has really let us down with a lot of technical problems on their end. Very soon, those problems will be taken care of as we move hosts and upgrade servers—but please be patient in the process. I just need to get a few kinks worked out, and we’ll be making the jump as soon as possible. After that, it should be smooth sailing, and the problems you’ve had accessing the site will be a distant memory! Whew! Wherever you are, have a fab one, and we’ll be chatting again soon. xo
Question of the Week: What product(s) do you use to clean your makeup brushes?
In-between deep cleanings, I use a brush cleanser that I buy from Sephora—I’ve been using the Sephora brand Daily Brush Cleaner Spray for YEARS and it has served me well. When it’s time for deep-cleaning, I don’t have a special brush cleansing shampoo specifically for them, but I’ll use whatever sulfate-free shampoo I’ve got on hand, and all has been well for many years. I deep-clean my foundation brushes and those I use for cream products like blushes much more frequently than my other brushes, however. What do you use?
