Using at-home products like dish soap, shampoo and vinegar.

When it comes to makeup, it would be nothing without the right brushes. Whether you’re someone who loves to create a colorful bold eye using big eyeshadow palettes and multiple brushes, or if you’re someone who opts for a natural look and applies powder with a fluffy brush, the tools have become essential parts of our routines. Despite being everyday items, our brushes often get neglected and it is easy to forget to clean them.
