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.
