tarte Miracles from the Amazon 6 Piece Collection with Bag

be your own tarteist group tarte Miracles from the Amazon 6 Piece Collection with BagTarte is one of my all-time favorite brands, so when they launch something new and amazing, I can’t wait to do my bloggerly duty and tell the world.

A few weeks ago, Tarte gave me an exclusive sneak peek at their Miracles from the Amazon 6-Piece Collection with Bag – and even though I’m a woman with an enviable beauty arsenal, I’ve been using these products in my daily routine ever since.

That’s what I love about Tarte…so many of their products become my instant beauty besties. They’re the “how did I survive my whole life until now?” type of products. Anyway, I can finally dish on this amazing makeup set because it is now available for purchase on QVC and QVC.com. In fact, it’s QVC’s “Today’s Special Value” today. Ladies, turn this Friday the 13th into a lucky day by scoring this bag of beauty goodies. Here’s what’s in the collection:

makeup+brushes Makeup Mondays With Mario: How To Clean Makeup Brushes

Hey Mario,

I’d like some advice on how to best clean my makeup brushes. I don’t know if I should be using soap, shampoo or a special kind of brush cleaner. And how often should I be cleaning them? I’ve spent a small fortune on brushes but have no idea how to care for them.

Thanks so much!
Ella

Hi Ella,
 
It took years of experimenting with different techniques and products to clean my brushes and I’ve found a way that works for me. I hope it does for you as well.
 
To clean brushes with natural or synthetic bristles, I use a basic hair shampoo. First run water over the brush hair then rub into the shampoo in a circular motion (I pour a bit of shampoo into a bowl). Rinse under running water again to get all of the soap out. I finish off by squeezing the water out, making sure not to pull on the hairs.
 
To dry your brushes, you should lay them flat on a towel. If you stand them up in a cup to dry, the water seeps into the handle and causes the brush to weaken and fall apart over time.
 
Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays with Mario!

xo,
Mario

Mario,

How are you? I have been following your work and reading your blog for a couple of years now and you are my go-to guy for anything makeup and beauty related. I noticed in pictures that you have a ton of brushes that seem to be from different brands and I know that good quality brushes are important. Can you please recommend brushes that are good but affordable and preferably from one company? I have a couple of MAC brushes but I can’t really afford to buy a whole set right now. Thanks in advance and Happy Holidays!

sigma+brushes Makeup Mondays With Mario: Brushes That Wont Break The Bank

Hi Danielle,

I totally understand where you’re coming from when it comes to brushes being pricy! Finding very good, inexpensive brushes that last long and work well will sometimes require a bit of research. Research and testing takes all the fun out of it so heres my recommendation that I’m certain you will be very happy with. Try Sigma brushes. Sigma is a line of professional brushes that are all high quality and won’t break the bank. They offer a bunch of brush sets that you can choose from as well as individual brushes.

Happy Holidays to you as well and thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays With Mario!

Mario
