I can’t tell you how many times I was working on an eye look with a few shades of eyeshadow but ended up messing it up because my brush wasn’t fully clean. I tend to swipe my brush between uses on a small pieces of tissue. I’ll stroke it back and forth briskly to remove any excess shadow and re-dip into the next shade.
Sometimes this doesn’t always work out great especially if I’m using dark eyeshadows and sometimes I end up messing my look up when switching between shades. I can avoid this by just using separate eyeshadow brushes that works!
But I have to say the Vera Mona Color Switch Duo could potentially become my new best friend!
The Vera Mona Color Switch Duo is a simple sponge that serves two purposes. The outer ring sponge can be used to swipe your brush across when switching between colors to remove excess eyeshadow and the inner sponge is damp and can be used to not only clean your brush but also slightly dampens your brush so you shadows can be applied more intensely and richer.
I dunno if it works better than my little tissue trick but I’m willing to try!
Next trip to Urban Outfitters I’ll be picking this one up!
