The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is on and aside  from all the fabulous fall fashion I am obsessed with this uber compact and affordable set of make up brushes by MAC. It retails for $170.00 but during the sale it is discounted to a very affordable $52.50. I KNOW!! $52.50-such a steal of a deal! It’s one of my perfect products I just had to share. Enjoy!

Every once in awhile  I come across an absolute “must have” for every Glamour Girl.  I came across this mini make up brush set from J. Crew and was ready to push the purchase button when the SOLD OUT sign pops up from out of no where. WH.H.A.A.A.T!  Please tell me it isn’t so. I love this mini make up brush set and I thought you would too. For  $36.50 it’s a perfect for your purse not to mention a great gift idea for the impending holidays.  I hope that J.. Crew will reconsider to restock. Stay tuned…

Easy DIY:Brush-Clean Up

I know that the holidays make us crazy busy. There’s  all the prepping and parties and making sure on top of all the hustle and bustle that you look Glamour Girl ready. To that end, I thought it might be a nice reminder to include an easy DIY on cleaning your make up brushes. Say what? Yep-you heard me… cleaning your make up brushes is mucho important so you don’t risk a breakout during the holidays. I found this easy peasy DIY brush cleaning solution courtesy of Pinterest and and additional tutorial from a blog entitled: Beauty Anywhere/make up by Rachel to help you out..

 

 

1. Take a tablespoon of white vinegar in a cup of hot water, and a 20 minute soak, followed by a hot, then cold rinse and pat dry will do it. Disinfects, dissolves grease/makeup, leaves no film, and inexpensive.

 

 

2. Rinse out your brushes with lukewarm water, squeeze out the excess water, and make sure they are smoothed out into their original form. Lay your brushes on a towel flat to dry overnight.

Time to “Brush Up!”

This is Sonja Kashuk. She is an amazing make-up artist who just so happens to market a line of VERY AFFORDABLE make-up brushes favailable at TARGET. 

  

Sonja designs  QUALITY make-up brushes that are uber fabulous. Now you  won’t have to spend a fortune to apply your make-up correctly. This seven piece set is available for $24.99.

This five piece set is perfectly priced at (wait for it) $14.99! Yes… you are reading that right and now you must admit there is no reason whatsoever to NOT own a set of quality brushes. If you already broke down and bought a very pricey set for at-home use, consider owning a second set to carry in your purse for touch ups. Let’s “face it” summer heat can wreck havoc on your make-ups staying power…

What have we learned today:

Every Glamour Girl should own at least one set of make-up brushes.

A good set of brushes need not break the bank

We love Sonja Kashuk….. (Told you so!)
