What’s in your makeup bag? Mine is full of brushes. I use them for everything. For my eye shadow, my powder (hate putting powder with anything else than a brush!), my other powder (what, everybody needs an extra touch of bronzer okay?), for my blush (what, everybody needs an extra touch of pink all right?), actually, everything. I don’t really like touching make up with my hands, I guess.
So I love them, don’t wash them often enough (come on, are you really washing them every night like Brandy told us to do?)(I don’t even wash them every month!)(Woops did I just say that?)(Yes I did…) and most of all, I LOSE them. All the time. I don’t know why. That and socks. All the time.
