You should already be washing your makeup brushes once a week. But you should probably think of replacing them every few months and Spring cleaning is a perfect excuse!
As Spring and Summer come along, your skin will hopefully be getting a nice tinted glow and that means you need to swap out your foundation. We recommend tossing your thick winter foundation and opting for a tinted moisturizer with SPF. Light, tinted and provides protection -- say no more!
