How To Make Boring Beauty Tasks Fun

Cleaning Makeup Brushes. Everyone knows that cleaning makeup brushes is a seriously boring, time consuming task.  To get through it, I set up my iPad near my bathroom sink and watch an episode of whatever I am binge watching on Netflix at the time.   Hour long shows work well for me since it usually takes me an hour to clean all my brushes when I don't clean them on a regular basis (which is usually how it goes).  Recommendations: Scandal, Call the Midwife, Sons of Anarchy.

At Home Manicure/Pedicure. I love a good mani/pedi at the salon but in an attempt to save money I almost always paint my own nails.  Although you can incorporate nails into a pamper routine, I don't find it very relaxing.  Instead I like to have a mani/pedi party.  Nothing major, just a drink, dessert, and chatting with friends or my mom.  Just be sure that while chatting and gossiping away you don't get distracted and end up with a messy manicure.

Cleaning Makeup Containers. I don't know about you, but I find after repeated daily use the packaging of makeup I use tends to look a little grubby, with fingerprints and smudges all over. Every so often I have to take a paper towel or wipe to any products looking a little rough and make them shiny and pretty again.  Because this doesn't take too long, I first pop on a face mask geared toward whatever my skin needs on the day.  Mostly likely everything will be clean and back to new before it is time to take the face mask off.

Organizing Makeup/Skincare Collection. I recently reorganized my makeup, not changing up the storage too much but making sure everything fits right where it should.  Prior to organizing I watched several YouTube videos for inspiration.  When it came time to organize, I put those exact same videos on, which is helpful as background noise as well as reminding me of any ideas I want to incorporate into my storage.
