Really Important Things (Not Really) That I Think About When I’m Washing Makeup Brushes

Hey there, beauties! Today, I want to talk about something that might seem a little random but is actually quite important (well, maybe not really) – the thoughts that go through my head when I’m washing my makeup brushes.

Yes, you read that right. That mundane task of cleaning our precious makeup tools can sometimes lead to some pretty deep (or maybe just downright weird) musings. So, sit back, relax, and let me take you on a journey through the rabbit hole of my thoughts.

First and foremost, I start to contemplate the meaning of life (yes, really). While I’m swirling those brushes around in soapy water, I can’t help but think about the bigger picture. Like, why are we here? What’s the purpose of all this? Is it just to look good and apply makeup? Or is there more to it? Maybe I’m overthinking it, but sometimes it’s good to take a step back and question the norm.

Next up, I start to imagine all the places my brushes have been. I mean, they’ve touched my face, my eyelids, maybe even my lips. But have they also been to parties, on vacation, or见证 any memorable moments? It’s like they have a secret life of their own that I know nothing about. Who knows what adventures they’ve had before landing in my makeup bag.

And then, there’s the whole process of washing the brushes itself. I start to wonder if there’s a better way to do it. Should I use a brush cleanser or just good old-fashioned soap and water? Is there a specific technique to get them really clean? Should I wash them more often or is once a week enough? These are the types of questions that keep me up at night, or at least for the few minutes it takes to wash my brushes.

But perhaps the most important thought of all (okay, maybe not) is how grateful I am for these little tools. Without them, my makeup routine wouldn’t be the same. They help me enhance my features, express myself, and feel confident. So, as I’m rinsing off the last bit of soap, I take a moment to appreciate all that they do for me.

In conclusion, washing makeup brushes might seem like a trivial task, but it can actually inspire some pretty profound thoughts (or maybe just some crazy ones). From contemplating the meaning of life to imagining the adventures of our brushes, it’s a surprisingly mindful activity. So the next time you’re giving your brushes a good clean, take a moment to reflect, laugh at your own musings, and appreciate the little things that make our beauty routine special.

Until next time, stay beautiful and keep thinking those (not really) important thoughts!
