Soft brushes

I cleaned my brushes and used the tip in the video about olive oil to help soften them, and it worked! My brushes range in quality and price (I even have a couple from the dollar store which make great concealer brushes since they’re synthetic with a little firmness to them) and I wanted to see if I could get the not-so-soft bruches feeling a little nicer (I’ve hardly used them recently and they were just going to go into my personal collection instead of my professional collection).

Suprisingly it even worked on my synthetic brushes. They are all sooo soft, its fantastic! I had to wash them twice after leaving them covered in oil for a few minutes but that wasn’t a problem. I highly recommend this tactic :-)

Thanks BeautyNewbie ;-) I couldn’t put the video itself up on here as the “embed” option isn’t available but you can just click here to link through.

Wedding Make-up

We’re still filming but the days are intermittent, so I said yes to helping out a friend this Saturday with a wedding party of ten :-) Apparently they had another MUA, but they can’t do it any more and Andrea thought of me, which is nice!

It’s down in Surrey (B.C.) which is a bit of a pain to get to for me with all of my kit, but it will be worth it and it will be lovely to spend the morning with a bridal party. They’re always so happy! With it being down in Surrey I’m thinking I should definitely look at what to take in my kit with a “less is more” approach, or I’ll never be able to cart it all down there, ha ha.

So excited :-)
