As my makeup brush collection grows I'm paying more and more attention to 'deep cleaning' my brushes at least once a week. Why? Well, you wouldn't eat with the same fork over and over again, would you?
Makeup brushes can harbour lots of dead skin & bacteria over time and that is not something I want to be putting back on to my face! You can spot clean - with makeup brush cleanser, or deep clean with good old soap and water. I've never seen any particular recommended soap/shampoo to use on brushes so I just went ahead and used what we had at the moment.
So heres my super quick routine for cleaning your beauty tools!
Spread out your dirty brushes - analyse the damage. (ew).
Pump some soap onto the brush, or the palm of your hand...
Swirl/gently scrub the brushes in a circular motion, adding water, more soap if needed & repeat until water runs clear!
Squeeze out any excess (clear!) water...
Admire your shiny, clean brushes! Leave to dry overnight on a towel/cloth, et voila!
Simple really. Its one of those things that you need to get in the habit of doing I suppose, and once you do - you won't even question why. Plus, they always feel nicer when they're all lovely & clean!
I'm keeping my eye out for a makeup brush cleanser at the moment, so, do you have a favourite?
How do you clean your brushes? Any particular products used? xo
