So, this happened:
My artist studio brushes started shedding. I bought all of these on the same day, some time last year. I’m not sure whether it’s the quality of the brushes or if I’m washing them wrong. Maybe both.
I don’t use warm water anymore because the last time I did that to wash an ELF studio brush, it shed like crazy.
I usually just lay it down to dry overnight. Then I store it upright in pencil holder fashion in the morning. I have a feeling that it could still be wet inside, near the neck of the brush where I can’t feel it. When I store it upright, the water could be seeping down and loosening up the glue.
But then, someone also left a comment on one of my instagram photos saying her artist studio angled flat top brush is shedding like crazy.
Googling for reliable makeup brushes now. Feel free to suggest investment pieces for (really) tiny-spaced lids. I need a blending brush, preferably small, tapered, and pointed. I’m eyeing Hakuhodo and Rae Morris, but I’m still looking for cheaper options. I have a Sigma E45 but it splayed and lost the point.
In other news, I think I’m getting better at eye makeup application.
