Every time i use my make up brushes i have to clean them. I have so many make up brushes that sometimes i think i'm addicted to buying them. I like to wash my brushes and leave them to dry on a towel overnight. My brushes are synthetic and real hair ones. The downside of cleaning them all is that it took so long and the brushes took forever to dry.
Now i have the best cleaner EVER!! This make[...]

Julie-Ann offers samples if you [...]
