Heart to Hart

Heart to Hart, Coffee Chat,

To answer commonly asked questions, or to discuss general thoughts and topics, I have created this post to have a little Heart to Hart with you all. So grab a cup of coffee and let’s chat.

After Heart to Hart #1, I received a few questions and topics via email and I’d like to first thank those who reached out. I’ve changed up the post slightly and left a question / discussion form below that will come directly to me!

A few of the ideas I received were more beauty related so, I figured it would be great to have a Heart to Hart about; Beauty Bad Habits. We all may have our own bad habits and we’re more similar then you think.  So let’s chat.


Topic 1 – Too tired to remember to remove my makeup at night.

Hart: We’ve all been here! A long night out and too tired for anything so, we just fall asleep with a full face of makeup on. The one thing that helps me remember to remove me makeup at night is to leave my makeup remover wipes right by my bed side. Just an arms reach and a quick wipe… problem solved. You don’t even have to move from the bed or even open your eyes!

Topic 2 – How long do you go before washing your makeup brushes and what do you use to clean them?

Hart:  Cleaning your makeup brushes are very important. A few months ago I wrote “When Makeup Goes Bad” which talks about makeup expiration and the importance of makeup and bacteria. I usually go about a week or two before cleaning depending on how much makeup I’ve apply in that time. I don’t wear a full face of makeup on a daily basis so my cleaning schedule might be a bit more spaced out then yours. To clean my brushes I use a mild soap like baby shampoo or even dish detergent with anti-bacterial properties to give my brushes a thorough deep clean. I have a friend who’s a makeup artist who actually uses olive oil to deep clean her brushes. Give those a try and see which works best for you.


Topic 3 – Nail Biting

Hart: I used to bite my nails years ago (the husband hated it) but nail maintenance is key! Cutting, Trimming and Filing will make them look good and you’ll feel better about your nails, therefore you learn to bite less. Another issue would be anxiety. I see people biting their nails due to stress. Hopefully, working on your stress level will in return cure your biting habit in the future.


I loved chatting over coffee… Let’s do it again soon!
