Makeup brush cleaning hack

Raise your hand if you are guilty of not washing your makeup brushes as often as you are supposed to.
It’s time I share my sneakret (sneaky secret) with you about what I do in-between deep washes.
I have a few favorite brushes by Sonia Kashuk that I love, and if I’m switching between a light shadow and a dark one, I’ll swipe it back and forth on a POND’S Original Fresh Wet Cleansing Towelette and give it a little time to dry. If I’m in a hurry, which is pretty much all the time, I’ll then brush it back and forth on a tissue to soak up any leftover moisture. I’ve found that it dries quickly since it isn’t becoming over saturated in water. This works great for powder eye shadow and also for cream eye shadow.
The biggest difference can be seen on my white brush below.
So while this doesn’t cut it for deep cleaning brushes, it frees me up to use my favorites without transferring dark eye shadow onto a part of my eye that is supposed to be light. And ,of course, this trick could be used for any makeup brushes as well. This may be a great habit to get into if you use a liquid foundation and apply with a brush. This could temporarily and lightly cleanse off any excess before you are able to really shampoo the brush off.
I have a few other hacks using POND’S Wet Cleansing Towelettes that I thought I’d share with you today as well:
-For sunburn, use POND’S Exfoliating Renewal Towelettes (with cucumber and citrus extracts) to soothe sunburned skin. Keep them in the fridge for extra cooling!
-Try wiping down your cell phone with a POND’S towelette to remove any makeup reside that could becoming a breeding ground for bacteria, celebrity makeup artist and POND’S partner Kayleen McAdams came up with this tip.
-For puffy eyes, refrigerate and use POND’S Evening Soothe Towelettes by cutting in half and laying over eyelids.
Do you have any tips or tricks for cleansing towelettes? I’d love to hear them!
