How I clean my makeup brushes. Featuring; Sigma Spa Express Brush Cleaning Glove

Cleaning your makeup brushes is known to be such a tedious task and I know a lot of you would avoid doing it and putting it of as long as you can!

There are so many reasons why you need to wash your makeup brushes regularly: 

  • Dirty brushes compromise your makeup application.
  • They contain bacteria, oils and dead skin cells that when transferred on our face can cause us breakouts- Eww!
  • Not looking after your brushes will shorten their life span!

You should deep clean your brushes at least once every 2 weeks and spot clean them regularly.

Dirty brushes ready to be washed, L’oreal Mythical Oil shampoo, Models Prefer brush cleaner, unscented soap and Sigma spa express brush cleaning glove.

I wash my brushes with;

  • Warm water
  • Unscented bar of soap
  • Shampoo
  • Sigma Spa Express Brush Cleaning Glove

If you have any brushes which are difficult to clean as there is a lot of build up use a little bit of olive oil to break down the product first.

I rinse all my brushes under warm water, I very gently rub them on the bar of soap and then on the Sigma cleaning glove until it lathers. I rinse with water and continue a second time if needed. I then squeeze a little shampoo on the Sigma glove and swirl my brush into the product – I do this to make the brushes soft and to clean off anything missed from the soap. I rinse my brushes with warm water again and then leave them to dry overnight.

The SIGMA SPA EXPRESS BRUSH CLEANING GLOVE is new to my brush cleaning routine but I am so happy its in my life! It makes cleaning my brushes a lot quicker and easier. You are able to clean both eyes and face brushes with the glove as it has different textures and its also travel friendly so perfect for mobile MUA’s.

When I just want to do a quick spot clean of my brushes I use Models Prefer brush cleaner – This stuff is amazing to spot clean! I just spray some on to my Sigma Cleaning glove or a cotton pad and swirl my brush in the product.  The brushes are cleaned perfectly and dry within minutes ready to use again. The only downside of the product is it does have quite an overwhelming scent.   Costing only $12.99 its is very affordable, I picked mine up from Priceline.

ZOEVA Rose Golden Luxury Brush Set Review

Hi Lovely people,

Today I am here to review the ZOEVA Rose Golden Luxury brush set. If you follow me on my  Instagram you would have seen I received this amazing brush set recently and I have been testing the brushes out every day since then.

And my god I am in love with them, they are defiantly my new holy grail brushes.  They are just as good as my Sigma brushes! Saying that though I have had my Sigma brushes for almost a year and they are still perfect, so I am keen to see what the longevity of the ZOEVA brushes is like.

The Rose Golden Luxury brush set RRP  $65 Euro ($95.50 AUD)

In the Rose Golden Luxury set you get:

Face:
106 Powder: Apply loose and pressed powder

This brush has quickly become my favorite powder brush which I use daily, it applies the perfect amount of powder on your face and is so soft!
102 Silk Finish: Apply and blend foundation

I normally HATE applying foundation with a brush and always use my ChiChi Cosmetics blending sponge, but this buffing brush is heaven to apply foundation with! Blends the foundation in seamlessly and flawlessly straight away. No brush streaks or lines, just perfect!!

110 Face Shape: Contour the face shape with cream and powder products

I haven’t used this brush to contour, instead I use it to apply the my eye shadow base, it works perfectly with powder and cream!

127 Luxe Sheer Cheek: Apply powder blush

I use this brush to contour with, it gives you the most natural contour and is perfect for every day use!!  The brush is so soft and blends product flawlessly.

142 Concealer Buffer: Apply and blend concealer

I am not 100% sold on this brush as of yet. I am just so in love with blending my concealer with my blending sponge!!  It is a great quality, dense brush and does the job perfectly but just takes a little longer than the sponge to blend the concealer.

Eyes:
227 Luxe Soft Definer: Softly blend and smooth eyeshadow

This brush is amazing!  It applies eye shadow into my crease and blends out perfectly! It keeps the colour pigmented but perfectly blended. It very similar to my sigma E35 tapered blending.

231 Luxe Petit Crease: Accentuating and blending in the crease

I looooove this brush!  It has such precise placement of product but then smudges and blends out perfectly!

317 Wing Liner: Detailed eyeliner strokes and a perfect wing

This is just your basic winged eyeliner brush, it helps you create the perfect wing very quickly. It is not one of my favorite eyeliner brushes I own as it does take a little longer as the brush isn’t as firm and precise as other brushes.

(L-R) : 106 Powder, 102 Silk Finish, 110 Face Shaper, 142 Concealer Buffer, 317 Wing Liner, 127 Lux Sheer Cheek, 227 Luxe Soft Definer, 231 Luxe Petit Crease:

Firstly everyone can agree how stunning the brushes look keeping it simple but glamorous with black and rose gold. The brushes came perfectly packed in a sleek clutch with rose gold accents.

The brushes are hand crafted and made with high quality natural hair and synthetic taklon bristles, so they can be used with cream and powder based products.

I have not had any shedding at all from these brushes which I am extremely happy with!  ZOEVA Cosmetics have definitely won me over and I am eager to try some more of their products and brushes.  If you have been considering buying some of their brushes don’t wait any longer, they are worth every cent!

You can purchase them from the ZOEVA website and they ship to most countries but if you need shipping to another country which isn’t available, you are able to send them an email with the article name, quantity and delivery address including the country and the zip code.  They will then inform you whether they can ship to the desired country and the estimated shipping charges, which is great customer service!
