I'm still trying to finish up my 2011 year-end posts. Today's post is my November and December Brush of the Month brushes.
It's funny how it ended up being that the brushes for both months are crease brushes. The one of the left is an e.l.f. brush and the two on the right are a pair of really, really inexpensive brushes that came as a set. I like using crease brushes for applying my eyeshadows, especially if I'm doing more precision type of application of colors.
So this ends my 2011 Brush of the Month project. I'm so glad that I decided to do this to build up my brush collection. There are a few brushes that I purchased that I really like so I will definitely be purchasing more. I usually like to have 3 in rotation--1 that I'm using, another that gets used when the 1st one has been washed and is drying and a 3rd one for backup.
The weather has been a lot cooler which makes for longer drying time. Thanks to a recent post by Jen of From Head to Toe, I am now using her suggestion for the quick brush clean up. I'm sure that all of you have seen this post and her video as it is hard to find anyone who is not following her. I've always used packets of Purell Wipes to clean my fingers before I do any finger application so that I don't contaminate my products. However, you can't use the Purell Wipes on your brushes as I think it is too harsh. Seeing her suggestion, I've switched over to Wet Ones to sanitize my fingers as well as my brushes.
