How to choose the right brushes and care for them
When doing detailed work such as applying eyeliner or defining a brow, you need to add a little pressure with your brush as you apply it. If you have a bad brush the slightest pressure will move the bristles from 1mm to 5mm. And that is huge distance when talking about eyeliner.
With all brushes is a 50/50 ratio, you can buy an expensive brush or a painters brush and get a better outcome with the cheaper painters brush from the craft store. So this is a handy tip when going out to buy brushes.
To properly care for your brushes wash them once a week with a brush cleanser. I use paint remover which works great it is a soap. It washes clean. After I have cleaned them I use germx hand sanitizer. Let them dry on a towel.
