Easy "Brush Guard"

I was watching Dustin Hunter's YouTube video (Quick Tricks: Drying Your Brushes) the other day and I thought that he gave such a great tip on how to dry your makeup brushes after you have cleaned them.
Here's his video:

I don't own brush guards so I've been laying my makeup brushes on a towel at a slant to try and keep the water away from the ferrule. -__-;;;
I didn't really believe this tip was going to work very well so I decided to try it. I had extra TP lying around anyway :p
My army of brushes all wrapped up tight

so....did it work??
YES!!!!!! AMAZING!!!!
 Look at that! It looks all nice and groomed :p

I'm impressed! This brush usually looks so fuzzy!

Wow! The bristles looks so smooth and shiny!

Dustin Hunter is a genius!!!! 
Go try it, you guys!!! :p

Bookmarked for later! This is great, I really don't like spending money on things like "brush guards" when I can tell that they were probably really cheap for the company to make... this looks just fine to me. :-)

haha I was thinking, what if one would use pads (feminine napkins?) because they would definitely leave no residue like toilet paper may...

pass by :)
I tried to use towel as the "brush guards" before, but later I wasn't even cleaning my brushes... too lazy... haaaa

LOLanne said...

oooh such a good tip!! im always sooo reluctant to wash my kabuki brush cuz the bristles always end up frayed and flat on the side where i lay it down!!

Karen said...

Wow wrapping brushes with TP, creative much? haha I don't know if I would do that b/c I think TP's are linty.. luckily my brushes are not high-end so I'm okay with drying them flat on a towel :P But it's a different story when I spend extra on brushes someday. Job hunting is no fun :( I think it's difficult yes but I'm still optimistic that eventually I'll get one if I keep trying! How do you like living at home and being cared for by your mom? I do like it to an extent lol because I do want my independence too. I do plan on moving out someday.. but that will depend on finances aka if I have an income to get my own place! Wahh. Hope you're having a lovely weekend Kay~
