If there's one thing that every girl should invest in, it's a basic set (as in the essentials: blusher, powder and liner) of good quality make-up brushes. As I was applying blusher this morning, still admiring how amazing Bobbi Brown brushes are, I made a mental note to wash the brushes tonight. Wash them with a little bit of shampoo, leave them to dry flat on a towel overnight and, hey presto, brushes that are as good as the day you bought them. It'll help your brushes last for years and keep them hygienic and clean.
