You start your morning by applying your makeup on your lovely clean face. If you haven’t cleaned your brushes recently, then your brushes are not only putting on new makeup, but also old makeup, dirt, oil, dead skin, and bacteria.
When you use your brushes, bits of makeup, oil, dirt, and even bacteria can get trapped in the bristles, and it’s then left to fester in the brush after use. Also, if you then drop them on the floor, leave them on the side or drop them in your makeup bag they are then picking up any bacteria etc from other surfaces. The next time you go to use it, the same thing happens, except the bacteria that has festered from the time before, it now ALSO on your skin. It’s a vicious circle.
So while it might seem basic, skipping this step can lead to clogged pores and spots. Most makeup counters including MAC sell brush cleaner or you can clean your brushes using gentle shampoo. Always avoiding getting the part of the brush where handle meets the head wet, as this can loosen the glue over time
To clean your brushes with a brush cleaner:
(Either put into a spray bottle or put a little bit of the liquid in a small dish.)
To clean your brushes with shampoo:
And now you have lovely clean makeup brushes ready to use again – which will also improve the lifespan of your brushes. If you do store your brushes loose in your makeup bag placing a clean tissue loosely over the bristles to help them stay in shape and keep them clean.
When you spray using an airbrush it atomises the product making the particles of make-up tiny. This is why airbrush make-up is used in HD TV and film. The particles in the make-up become much smaller than when it is conventionally applied and therefore less visible. HD TV picks up absolutely every imperfection! There are also hygiene benefits to spraying. When we use a conventional brush or our fingers there is potential to spread bacteria and germs across the face. By spraying Airbase make-up onto the face we can avoid this.

The silicone in the make-up makes Airbase incredibly long lasting and waterproof (and tear proof!).

Airbase really does last all day.

No matter how many weddings I do, I am always really honoured to be a part of a brides special day.
I can honestly say I have really enjoyed meeting everyone I have shared their wedding day with, and I really hope my brides enjoyed their day as much as I enjoyed the morning.
