How to Clean Your Makeup Brushes

How often do you wear makeup? Well... How often do you clean your makeup brushes? Probably not as often as you should. Regardless, it is just as important to clean your makeup brushes as it is to apply your makeup! I'm here to share with you an easy way to clean your makeup brushes!

I totally understand that cleaning makeup brushes is not the funniest thing to do, but please make it part of your regular beauty routine! Just think about all the nasty dirt and oil that builds up over time in your makeup brushes... it's horrible for your skin and for the life of your makeup brushes! So please just promise me that you will try and clean your makeup brushes more often.

All you need is makeup brush cleaner and scrubber. Shall we begin? 

First, run your brush bristles under lukewarm water. Make sure to keep the bristles pointing downwards, avoiding the area where the handle meets the head. If water gets in there, it can loosen the glue that holds the bristles together!

Next, spray a decent amount of makeup brush cleaner onto the bristles of your makeup brush. About three sprays will do the trick!

Now, swirl the brush bristles back and forth across your makeup brush scrubber while rinsing every so until the water is clear and the makeup brush looks clean. 

After you feel you've worked out the dirt and oil that has been trapped in the bristles, rinse the brush head under lukewarm water again.

Use a cloth or a paper towel to dry off the bristles, reshaping them as you go. Lastly, lay your brushes flat to dry overnight.

That's it! Pretty painless, right?
