Hey guys and girls
Hope you’re all having a great weekend!
I am … I’ve found myself DIY’ing on my Saturday night in I’m flying out Monday for work so making the most of a quiet weekend!
So I’ve been shabby-chic’ing my 2nd hand 1940’s wardrobe (I’ll post a photo when it’s finished!) and something magic happened. My boyfriend Ben and I are happily painting away and we got to THAT point … when your brushes start shedding their hairs and stick to whatever they’re touching? That happened! My hairs from the brush were shedding all over my beautifully painted wardrobe!
I know you’re probably thinking “where is she giong with this” … bear with me
I’m used to this kind of issue daily through work … it’s not uncommon for a foundation brush to shed the odd hair on a clients face … I’m sure we have all been there, whether it’s on your face or someone elses? So when that happens, what do you do?
Do you use your phat finger to try and lift the hair, whilst removing half your foundation with it? Do you lick your finger and try and “out-stick” the hair? Wiping your saliva all over your (hopefully not anyone elses!) face?
If you don’t know how to remove it and you want to learn a little trick then keep reading!
So looking at my shabby-chic’ing wardrobe and all its straggler hairs, my boyfriend looked at me, a little in awe if I’m honest, as I gently manouvered my paint brush under the hair, lifted the end a little away from the surface, and freed it gently from the paint!
He had envisaged phat-fingering the hairs off and I’m sure covering himself in the process! He was amazed that such a simple trick would remove such an irritant!
It is at that point that I thought “I have to share this with you guys…. and check whether you are using that technique to remove your straggler hairs that shed from your foundation brush” … so are you?
If not, then start doing it! You will never have to try and prod with your fingers any more!
