Thanks to the always innovative beauty department, there are so many tools that are popping out from left to right that promise to help you apply your makeup with total ease. While we love our sponges and our trusty fingers, you have to admit that there's just a different finish that only a good set of makeup brushes can do for your beauty looks. Although good makeup brushes don't always come cheap, we all know that they don't last forever either. So to make sure that the makeup brushes you're currently using are still doing you good, we asked makeup artist Nikki Tiu to share the signs of when it's time to move on and look for a new set of brushes for your kit.

Q: When is it time to throw away my makeup brushes?

Nikki: I know that it's never easy to throw away makeup brushes no matter how affordable the price tags are. But you can't deny that when it's not doing your beauty looks any good anymore, you have to move on and look for a new set already. One telltale sign that you need to throw away your brushes is if the brush hair are already falling whenever you use it. Aside from that when the brush hair have already turned rough or scratchy against your face whenever you use them, you know it's time to part ways with your favorite makeup brushes and look for a new set.

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
