Cleaning my Makeup Brushes using the Sigma Brush Cleaning Glove

I promise you guys with a review of the Sigma Brush Cleaning Glove. This is a review and I guess you can call it a tutorial.

So these are some of my makeup brushes and I am going to show you how to clean them using the Sigma Brush Cleaning Glove. So let's get started.

First you pick the which brushes you are going to clean. I chose to clean my face brushes first, so I chose the side of the glove for cleaning face brushed. I started by wetting the glove.

Then I added some of my homemade brush cleaner to the middle of the glove. (If you are interest in my homemade brush cleaner recipe, please leave a comment below.)

Next, wet your brush and then swirl the brush in the cleaner and work up a lather.

Use the top of the glove to rinse all the cleaner out of the brush.

Lastly, squeeze all the water out of the brush. Repeat this process for all of your brushes. For small eye brushes flip the glove over and use the other side.

I will have to say that this glove does clean my brushes better than just washing by hand. The different textures on the glove helps get all the makeup out of the brushes. I did have a couple of brush where I had to wash more than once and ironically they were Sigma brushes, LOL! Anyway, I like how I was able to wash multiple eyeshadow brushes which reduced the amount of cleaning time.

All in all I am impressed with the cleaning glove and recommend anyone who is a makeup artist or if you do your makeup all the time to invest in the glove.

Super Huge Collective Haul Part 2: BH Cosmetics

Part 2 of my collective haul is the BH Cosmetics. I ordered a few things from their website. This is my first purchase from BH Cosmetics, I've never used their products before. I have not yet used any of these products. So lets get started

So this is my mini haul from BH Cosmetics. I purchsed 4 palettes, 3 that are eyeshadow palettes and one concealer palette. I purchased a makeup case and a brush belt.

I have been shopping for a brush belt for a couple of years now since I have starting doing freelance makeup. I wasn't having any luck because I had a certain budget and all the belts I liked were way over that budget until I found BH Cosmetics, I was able to find a brush belt in my budget. This belt feels really good and there is enough room for all the brushes I will need while I am working.

I have been seeing this palette on most of the makeup channels on YouTube and I just had to get one for myself. I have not used it yet, but can't wait to try out the colors. My daughter's prom is coming up, I just may use it when I do her makeup.

The other eyeshadow palette that I purchased is the BH Day & Night palette. This palette has eyeshadows that you can wear in daytime on the left and for the night on the right. I was able to use this palette when I was invited to a birthday party this weekend. The colors are so pigmented which makes for a great color pay off.

Since I will be working on a variety of women of color, this concealer palette is perfect for me. I wish I could find a foundation palette like this too.

I needed a matte eyeshadow palette. I find that these palettes are very convenient, they don't take up much room in my makeup case which brings me to the last item in my haul.

I needed another makeup case because the one I already have is extremely full. This case holds all the makeup palettes that are featured in this post and then some. I bought this case to use on my small jobs where I won't need a lot of products.

This concludes part 2 of my Super Huge Haul. Stay tuned for Part 3.
