How to clean your makeup brushes.

There are varying methods out there for cleaning your makeup brushes. One method I found is very simple and works great.

  1. First, gather your makeup brushes, shampoo, a cup, a towel, and water.
  2. Put the shampoo into a cup of water to form a soap mixture.
  3. One at a time run the brush under lukewarm water taking care not to get water into the base (point down towards the sink).
  4. Dip the brush into the shampoo mixture and swirl it around.
  5. Pat dry using a towel.
  6. Reshape the bristles to make sure they aren’t messed up.
  7. Leave the brush to dry laying on a towel. (One article I read said to do this with the brush angled so that the water doesn’t get down into the base of the brush.
  8. Repeat steps 3-7 until all of your brushes are clean.

It is recommended to clean your brushes weekly to prevent bacteria.
