BRUSH-UP

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Life - - BEAUTY -

My friends, Me­lanie and Trevor, are DIL­DOs.

You read that right — it’s not a typo — they are dou­blein­come lit­tle-dog own­ers.

They have the most adorable pooch called Flumpy, who has a bet­ter wardrobe, diet, so­cial life and even bet­ter hair than I do!

I don’t know why talk of Flumpy has made me think of clean­ing your cos­metic brushes, but it has, and the best prod­uct to do it with, I find, is Shu Ue­mura Brush Cleaner, right, from €15, avail­able from Brown Thomas.

One of my New Year beauty res­o­lu­tions is to clean my brushes more of­ten, es­pe­cially any brushes I use with creamy prod­ucts, such as con­cealer, lip­stick or foun­da­tion.

The Shu Ue­mura cleaner is my fave as it works so quickly.

Many times, I’ve thought, ‘I re­ally need to clean my brushes, but they’ll never be dry by tomorrow when I need them.’ Not with this beauty. Sim­ply pour the brush cleanser into a glass, swirl the brush in it, and then press the brush against a towel to re­shape it. Then, to dry your brushes, lay them flat on a towel to dry. Top tip: al­ways lay your brushes flat to avoid wa­ter get­ting into the han­dles, as it can rot them.
