How I Clean My Make-Up Brushes...

After talking to some of my girl friends the other day I realised that many of them didn't understand how important it is to clean their make-up brushes! It's not just make up that gets stuck in the brushes, lots of yucky things get in their too such as dirt and bacteria. As well as being important it's also really, really easy to clean your brushes and honestly doesn't take long, so I thought I'd share with you how I clean mine..
First of all I take some baby shampoo and of course all my dirty brushes..

Next I run the dirty brush under some luke warm water..

 I then squirt a tiny bit of baby shampoo onto my hand and gently work it into the brush..

 I then rinse out all the shampoo with some luke warm water..

Finally, I gently squeeze out any water left in the bristles and then lay them out to dry on a towel..

.. and that's how easy it is!
If you have any brush cleaning tips, tricks or advice then feel free to share below!

P.S. Whilst we're on the topic of brushes...I'll be doing a post on my new favourite brushes soon so be sure to look out for that!

The Glamour Beauty Edit - Latest In Beauty


Once again Glamour magazine have teamed with Latest In Beauty. I was flicking through glamour magazine the other day and happened to notice they'd released a new box so I ordered myself one asap. I've previously had two of the Latest In Beauty Glamour Edit boxes and have loved them both, this one is no different - the products are all amazing! In fact I think this one is my favourite.

Just in case you're unsure what Latest In Beauty is.. they're are a company who put together beauty boxes with lots of fab products inside and the favourite part for me is that there's no subscription, you can pick and choose when you want a box!

Onto the best part - what's inside?!

DHC Deep Cleaning Oil - I've previously tried this oil and I love it! I only use it to remove my eye make-up (which by the way, it's amazing at doing) it leaves my eyes feeling really soothed and you don't have to scrub at all to get your make-up off.

Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick - I'm a massive Illamasqua fan and love their lipsticks. Unfortunately the colour in this box isn't for me, however I'm sure I can pass it onto a family member or a friend.

Magnifibres Brush-On False Lashes - Us girls are always striving to get that false lash effect without having to go through the trouble of applying those pesky false lashes and this product sounds like a perfect alternative! I've tried something very similar a while ago and was really impressed with the results, so I have high hopes for this!

C&E Nail Lacquer - Being a nail polish addict any kind of nail polish excites me and even more so when it's in my favourite colour!

Rimmel Sun Shimmer Instant Tan BB Skin Perfecter - I love these wash off tans. They're not too heavy and dark and if you make a mistake you just wash off it, theres no waiting for it to develop and it moisturises your skin as well which is always a good thing. I'm going to try this right away!

VelvoTan The Original Tanning Mitt - I'm not a huge fake tan kinda girl, but on the rare occasions I do apply fake tan a mitt always comes in more than handy.

Bourjois Cream Blush - I've already done a full review of these on my blog so it goes without saying that I'm definitely going to enjoy using this. I got a lovely peachy, coral colour which is perfect for summer time.

Toni & Guy Volume Plumping Whip - In my opinion, you can never have enough volume in your hair and volume is something my hair seriously lacks, especially now it's very long so I'm looking forward to putting this to the test.

Hawaiian Tropic Satin Protection Ultra Radiance Sun Lotion SPF30 - I love the scent of Hawaiian products, it just smells like summer in a bottle to me.. and we all need sun cream so of course this is something I'll use. It's actually a really handy size to throw in your hand bag or take away on holiday with you.

Once again The Glamour Edit box has made me a very happy lady, all the products are amazing and it's definitely worth the bargain price of £16.95.

Have you ever tried a Latest In Beauty box?
