Every dance performance requires that you pile on the makeup in order to stand out on stage. Not only can this take a toll on your skin, but it can also ruin your makeup brushes if they are not taken care of properly. In order for your makeup to apply smoothly, your brushes need to be properly cleaned. I recommend cleaning your brushes once a month (or more depending on how much makeup you are using). This also helps remove bacteria that can grow (I know...gross). Here is a simple cleaning solution that you can make at home.
1 cup water
1 Tablespoon dish soap
2 Tablespoons vinegar
Mix these ingredients together in a bowl. Swirl your brushes around in the solution until the makeup is mostly removed. Rinse clean with cold-lukewarm water. Let your brushes dry overnight before using them again.
Now you're ready for performance season!
Until next time,
