HOW TO: Salvage Old Makeup Brushes
I cleaned up my makeup storage last week and realized that I have way too many brushes that I don't use anymore as I always use the ones that are already displayed on my dresser. Most of these brushes are still unused or were barely used, but I prefer not to sell them because all of them were given to me by brands (I don't want to create an unfair competition, you know) and I don't really prefer giving them away because of hygiene reasons.
But of course, I don't want to throw them away just like that and this inspired me to find more uses for them in my everyday life! Click READ MORE to know how you can recycle old makeup brushes!
