Make Up Monday - How To Clean Your Brushes

We wash our towels, wash clothes, undergarments, and clothes right? So why wouldn't you wash your make up brushes? Would you really want to put dirty brushes on a face you wash more than twice a day? Nope, this is just putting the dead skin, bacteria, oil, and old make up right back on. Surprisingly, this is a very important step that many people leave out. The make up left behind from previous applications also makes your brushes feel rough, old, and, hard. You'll find after you wash them, the softness returns!

Things you'll need

  • A Sink, Bowl, or Glass
  • Baby Shampoo or Wash
  • Make up Brushes
Step 1
Gather all of your brushes, place them under the faucet, and rinse them off.

Step 2
Fill the sink, glass, or bowl up with lukewarm water and squirt some of the baby shampoo/ wash into the water. 

Step 3Squirt the baby shampoo/ wash into the palm of your hand and rub it on the tip of the brushes. Lather.

Step 4

Insert the brushes into the water and allow them to soak for 1-2 hours. ( You may soak them for less or more time, it's personal choice) 

Step 5
Take the brushes out of the water, and gently dab them on a paper towel. (Make sure the brush hairs are smoothed down the right way) Place the brushes on the paper towel and allow them to fully dry.
