DIY Brush Cleaner

Hey Beauties!

I hope everyone is having a splendid January!!!   I wanted to talk to you all today about keep those brushes clean and how you can do it at home for cheap!

This is not something that I am claiming originality on but rather something I saw that worked for my brushes and  I wanted to share with you to help your brushes.

Please note you should be washing and disinfecting your brushes daily, especially when running your own make up artist biz.  If you cannot get to that I suggest at least 3 times per week and this does not take long at all so it is not time consuming.  Not only is it good for your clients but it also it good to not dirty up those precious pores!


  1. a Bowl or deep plate
  2. 1 cap full of olive oil
  3. a tablespoon or 2 of either a shampoo that is free of chemicals, Dawn Dish Soap.
  4. 1 c hot water


Mix cup of hot water, and then olive oil and finally shampoo or dish soap in the bowl or plate.   I do prefer this order because then my brushes smell good(yes weird I know).  Start with 1 brush at a time and gently swirl the bristles into the solution,  gently squeeze any water out of the brush but DO NOT WRING the brush or you may damage the bristles.  Then wipe brush off on clean paper towel until there is not more makeup residue coming off the brush.  Let the brush air dry.  Repeat with each brush.  Allow brushes to dry over night.

January Rantings

Pet Peeve: Bashing Direct Sales Peeps

Happy January!  This may indeed spark quite a great amount of comments and arguments but all I ask of you is to hear me out and just read what I have to say before you respond.  Can you do that for me?

I have been in direct sales for about 10 years almost and always what I find is there are alot of consultants that are not trained very well.  As harsh as that sounds really my point here is some consultants lack the knowledge of building a business rather than trying to hook line and sink their biz.

I have been on many teams before I found the right company and the right team and that’s why I love where I am at now.  My Younique team focuses on relationships and communication and bettering ourselves rather than cramming our business down someones throat.

We are not all bad people and that’s what really pisses me off is when I hear someone say that all direct sales people are pushy,rude, or arrogant.  Just because we comment on a status about what we love to use and it happens to be our products that doesn’t mean I’m trying to push a sale, I believe in what I use and I believe in Younique’s mission.  It’s okay to not like something or not like a company it’s not okay to be rude to someone or tear their business down so stop shutting people out just because you’ve had one bad experience with a rep.

Think about it, how would you like it if you came up to me and spoke to me about your company where you work and I sabotaged it and threw it in your face?  How rude would that be.

So my challenge for you is the next time a Younique rep or any direct sales rep messages you and does NOT just throw her company down your throat give her a chance!



Full Face Forward!

January Kudos Review

Hey beauties!  Today I am sharing a snazzy deal this month at Younique.  We have our Full Face Forward kudos deal.

What the Heck is Kudos?

Every month Younique releases a new product or bundle, and it’s available the whole month.

I love all the of the products in this bundle!  The mineral liquid is seriously liquid gold, and the lip stain is so cute and you can choose from many colors, and how can you beat that cute bag?

I did the math, the get the entire bundle you would need to spend 200 if you bought each one separately you get all 3 goodies for 89 dollars that seven cheaper than one trip to Sephora or Ulta!

If you have any questions feel free to leave a comment!

Brightest Blessings,
