11. My true love gave to me.... a beauty tip that made life so much easier. And that tip is a fast and easy way to clean makeup brushes. What you do is take a container and fill it up with two parts dish soap to one part olive oil, put your makeup brushes in, swirl them around letting them absorb this miracle concoction, after take them out, rinse with warm water, and let them dry. And voilà ! Clean and like-new makeup brushes.
