How I saved my brushes from Makeup Forever's Eye Seal

By Monday, August 22, 2011 , , ,

Now I love MUFE's Eye Seal. I love it I do, but,  it makes your brushes rock hard.

In the last few weeks I've been using it with so many brushes to mix pigments to make liners or eyeshadows, and as a result my brushes turned into rock hard messes.

Now I have heard of this happening from another beauty blogger.

Last night I was washing some brushes and realized 5 of mine were rock hard. I didn't really know what to do.
I tried makeup remover, nope.
I tried mineral oil, nope.
I tried brush cleaner, nope.
I tried Ben Nye Bond Off, yep. Wait a second, yep that worked!

So how I did it without the bond off ruining the glue that holds the brush together.

Put some Bond Off onto a paper towel. Wipe the brush back and forth a few times (no matter how hard it is) and wait for it to soften up. A few times should do the trick. Then wash as usual.

Easy. So glad I figured it out and another use for Bond Off (since I never use it).
