How to Properly Clean Makeup Brushes

We told you before how often you should clean your makeup brushes, so now we’re telling you how to clean them. It’s a simple process that most women don’t do, because, well, laziness.

But, if you want clean and clear skin, you should really get in the habit of cleaning your brushes. So here’s a guide on how to do so, and what to use.

Products you can use as a cleanser:

Baby shampoo

Dr. Bronners 18-in-1 Hemp Pure Castile Soap Mild

-A professional brush cleanser

-Olive oil and dish soap

What you’ll need to clean them:

-Small dish bowl

-Clean towel

Now the steps to clean them:

Step 1: Run your brushes under lukewarm water and avoid the part where the bristles meet the handle. This will get rid of the excess makeup.

Step 2: Fill up your dish with equal parts cleanser and water (unless you’re using a dip and go type of cleanser).

Step 3: Swirl the brush in the solution. Take it out of the bowl and use the inside of your hand to create a good lather.

Step 4: Rinse the brush with lukewarm water, and repeat if you want a more thorough cleanse. Do this with every brush.

Step 5: Lay each brush flat on a clean towel. Do NOT sit the brushes upright to dry, ever.

Now, go get your brushes and get to cleaning.
