DIY: How to Clean & Fix Your Broken Makeup Brushes

When was the last time you cleaned your makeup 💄 brushes? 👀

 Sis, I am not judging you 😂 We all get so busy with the daily grind that we may often forget about things like cleaning our makeup brushes! Think about it though – you invest in a skin care regiment with cleansers, toners, serums etc. but then put old dirty brushes on your face? 🤔 “Well Ruby, when you say it like that…” lol We want this skin to be pampered all the time including with clean brushes!

 

Even if you are not a skincare enthusiast or daily makeup wearer, you should still take the time to clean your brushes. Regardless if they are just sitting on your vanity or makeup pouch, they are still exposed to dust and germs before going on your face whenever you use them!

 

How frequently should you clean your makeup brushes?

Rule of thumb is you should clean your brushes once a week! To make it easy to remember, I would recommend doing it during your self-care Sunday. While you have on your facial mask,  give your brushes a “mask,” too!

 

How do I clean my makeup brushes?

In this video, I am going to show you how to clean your makeup brushes easily with items you probably already have in your kitchen!

 

How frequently do you clean your makeup brushes? Let me know below! 👇🏾

 

Beauty with Ruby Tip: If you have a great deal of product build up, make sure to use Dawn dishwashing detergent! It’s theee best to get out the bacteria, grease and grime!

VLOG: Color Transformation with Q & A with Professional Colorist!

Hello my gems 💎!

After crazy technical difficulties, I am beyond happy to finally able to show you all the details of my color transformation! You’ll see my color transformation from start to finish with detailed Q & A with professional hairstylist ➰& colorist 🎨 Aymen of www.mohesco.com! He provides an explanation of the entire process, how to maintain colored natural hair and products used. Watch the full video below for the info and to see more of us clowning the entire appointment!😂😩

Why did I get highlights instead of coloring full head?

I went for the highlights as I wanted a change but wasn’t ready to commit to a full head of color! Prior to this, my hair had only been colored 1 time when I was in high school yearssss ago. So, it’s been a minute since having to care for colored hair and wanted to baby step into it to ensure I didn’t damage my hair in the process.

 

What was the process?

As apart of the process with my Colorist, Aymen, I went in for a color consultation where he did a strand test of coloring my hair to see how it reacted to the color, how quickly it colored and to ensure the health of my hair and my curls weren’t impacted!

To keep my desire to color my hair a secret from everyone (including my husband!) I hid the strand teat patch in my hair for 3 weeks before getting the highlights! Watch the video to see how I almost ruined to surprise for my husband 😂🤦🏽‍♀️

I hope you enjoy watching this detailed video with the Q & A with professional Hairstylist & Colorist Aymen. I wanted to ensure anyone else interested in coloring their hair could come get their questions answered all in 1 video while seeing the full process!

 

Questions asked to Colorist:

  1. What causes blonde color treated hair to look ashy/dusty on naturals?
  2. Once it gets to that ashy/dusty look, how can you bring the blonde back to life?
  3. How much product should I expect to use to color hair?
  4. Why is saturation important in the coloring process?
  5. How long does each step in the process take?

 

Let me know if you like the honey blonde highlights 🍯or my natural cold black hair better? Vote below! 👇🏾
