Last week, I got my headshots done. A friend of mine had recommended a makeup artist so I called her and she came over and did my makeup. I wasn’t happy at all with the make-up or the headshots but thats a whole different story. Anyway, what I did notice was the next day after my headshots, I had three huge zits on my face. ( I hate having those because then i get left with those dark marks grrrr.) I asked myself what had I done differently. Because my face breaks out for anything, I make sure I take very good care of my skin before going to bed. However, I honestly believe I got the zits because my makeup artist did not clean her brushes prior to using them on me. I can’t stress to you how important it is to make sure that your makeup brushes are clean. Now I don’t know for sure, but I’m assuming that she didn’t clean her makeup brushes because she didn’t seem too sanitary. I had to ask her to wash her hands prior to touching my face. A few of her bottles did not have covers on them, and when a que-tip fell on the floor, homegirl was about to reuse it on my face. (I almost went crazy on her!) She was just a mess. Anyway, now I’m stuck with three pimples the size of grapefruits, but you can avoid this by making sure that you sanitize your brushes at least once a week. Because my skin is so sensitive, I do it every other day, and here’s what I use.
Sephora's Daily Brush Cleanser
I spray it on every other day, leave my brushes on my living room table to make sure they dry. I haven't really had breakouts since doing this constantly (except when I allowed that girl to do my make-up). Make sure you clean your brushes! It's very important.
What makes you breakout? Do you have a special brush cleanser?
