The Perfect Brush Set!

Now I'm sure there are some brush sets I have never met. But Chanel brushes are my favorite!! I've had the brush set below (not the exact set) for over 3 years and it's still just as perfect as the day it arrived on my door step...and they've served their time, not to mention, I'm not the best at following cleaning orders. But, I will post helpful tips below from so you can take special care of yours:).

Although there are many warnings about purchasing on ebay regarding authenticity, I purchased my entire original set for about $90.00 after shipping! I even went to Neiman Marcus to check out their brushes and mine were identical. But as usual, buyer beware, plus you can always pick them up the old fashioned way over the counter:) Well, here are the beauties bellow with their Pony Hair, Fine Squirrel Bristles, Sable, Nylon, and Taklon each for their own perfect use. Enjoy!

Use good quality shampoo, always keep it at a slight angle (almost perpendicular) with the hair tips facing downwards, NEVER UPWARDS!, first, carefully wet the makeup brush hair. Place some shampoo on your fingertips and gently shampoo the hair. Shampoo in the direction of the hair. Pay special attention to the hair near the ferrule. Rinse it under gentle running water, thoroughly. Gently press it flat in a towel to dry. It is also a good idea to lightly press it back into shape. You can then leave it to dry flat on a dry towel or HANG it up (suspended) with the hair tip facing down. REMEMBER, never ever leave it to dry with the hair facing down or up, in a glass or container! The hair should not come into contact with any surface whatsoever while drying! Makeup brushes that dry upright (with hair pointing or facing upwards) will begin to cause particles to collect in, and water to run into, the ferrule and will soon begin to cause the hair on the makeup brush to fan out or shed and can even cause the handle to come loose or wobbly.

...and that's blogging without borders!
