Today, I wanted to write about how to wash your makeup brushes (aka how I wash my makeup brushes) though it is fairly easy — I know there may be some confusion on what product to use. If you haven’t read my makeup brush cleaner post then I highly encourage you to as it will quicken the cleaning process by a whole lot!
- Makeup brush cleaner ( Dont have?no worries your palm will do)
- Olive oil (or any natural oil of your choice)
- Natural Soap (e.g castile)
Tip: I would recommend using natural soap because its gentle and wont damage your brush thus increasing their overall life span.But If you’re one of the ones that use regular detergent on $30 makeup brushes my question to you is: WHY?!
First: Apply a tiny drop of olive oil or a natural oil of your choice onto your makeup brush (this loosens up the product on your brush and leaves it nice and fluffy once dried)
Second: Drop a dime-size drop of soap onto your scrubbing mat or board
Third: Scrub and rinse until water runs clear
Tip: Make sure the metal handle stays as dry as possible because you dont want to ruin the glue that keeps the brush and the handle together — I know it may be nearly impossible if you run your brushes over a sink but try!
P.S Dont forget to leave it to dry on a paper towel overnight!
