- Wash brushes regularly, the makeup sponges and the other accessories as they are a real source of infections and allergies. Use for it a gentle shampoo. Rinse them well. Shake the brushes and let to dry putting them in a glass, with the hair up. If the hair of brushes is natural you may use, after washing with shampoo, a gentle conditioner.

- If your mascara is dry although it is not consumed, until you’ll buy a new one, sink it (tightly closed) a few minutes in a glass of warm water. Never put alcohol into the tube of mascara! Drying mascara is due to improper use or that you left too much open. When you insert the brush into the tube to get more ink, move it gently into the mascara tube around the inner walls. Back and forth movements will introduce air into the tube and will dry the mascara
