How to Clean Your Makeup Brushes

Happy Monday to you all!

I can’t believe we are in the end of January. February starts this week!! That just means it’s closer to spring, am I right?

So, yesterday I finally put my foot down to wash my makeup brushes…because, believe it or not, I’ve never cleaned my makeup brushes! Any of the ones I’ve owned over the years I have never cleaned…and I know that is BAD for my skin. I don’t wear a ton of makeup, and I don’t have a lot of brushes like some girls do, but I knew it was time to do it!

I’m so embarrassed by my foundation brush, you guys!!

There are many things out there on how you should clean your makeup brushes, but I just wanted something simple, easy, and not many steps involved. Who wants to use up too much time just to clean your makeup brushes?

I have one brush just for my foundation, and one brush for my powder, so I knew once I got going it wouldn’t take me too long!

Here’s what you’ll need:

-Your brushes

-small plate or bowl

-Warm water

-dish soap

Step One: mix water and dish soap on your plate or bowl

Step Two: Swirl brush around in liquid mixture until clean (water will turn the color of your makeup, and you may need to do this step a few times depending on your brush)

I had to repeat this second step 4-5 times with my foundation brush!!

Step 3: Rinse out thoroughly under sink + lay out to dry.

Easy Peasy! With one of my two brushes only used for powder, it was easy to clean and not much to come off, but the foundation brush on the other hand… I will have to keep this a regular habit. You are supposed to clean your makeup brushes at least Once every couple of weeks (I’ve heard) so I will have to stay on top of this!

It’s good for your brushes and good for your skin!! 😀
