    I think one of the best things you can do with the makeup maintenance is clean those brushes. I bought a huge container of professional brush cleaner from Cinema Secrets, since it’s well-known and people love it (It’s blue). Love using cotton tips too since they’re so inexpensive. I threw away most all of my old scary lipsticks and went with gloss, lol.
