"You can choose how you want you face to look. I love it!" she told BuzzFeed News.

Since she loves to play with makeup, Julianna's Beautyblenders get a lot of work, and get pretty dirty. So when she saw a "hack" for cleaning them easily, she was intrigued.

"A few days ago, I was scrolling through Instagram, and I saw the page that came up with the idea," she said. "Unfortunately I can’t remember what the page was called, but I was extremely fascinated when I saw it."

The hack, which has been floating around for a while on Twitter and Instagram, said you just have to put the blender in a cup with soap and water, and microwave it for one minute. Julianna filmed herself trying it out.

THE WATER IS IMPORTANT.
