What a fun Saturday task… cleaning my Make Up Brushes. They really needed it, especially after my Cut Crease attempt with the FunFetti Palette (Click Here for Post) … they were packed with Eyeshadow.
I also suffer with spot prone skin and dirty brushes = breakouts! If you suffer like me, make sure you clean your brushes regularly.
As I started cleaning them, I thought I would share how I do it & find out if there is any easier, better way from you guys!
I actually really want that device, I keep seeing it on Facebook, you stick your brush into a machine it spins it really fast to wash it and then again to dry it… how easy is that? None of this hunching over my sink, creating a weird painting as you flick brown fuckin water up the walls… not what your bathroom should look like…
Anyway – my routine is pretty simple
- I have a little silicone facial cleansing pad that my wonderful Sister in Law gave me – link to buy/see here.
- a Decent Shampoo
- a Decent Conditioner
I squeeze shampoo onto the cleansing pad and rub my brush into it, get all the make up out – rinse it and repeat until all the product is removed and the brush is clean. I then add a tiny bit of conditioner to the brush, so that it stays smooth and not brittle and rinse it out! I then space them on a towel and leave for 24 hours until dry.
Are there any special products anyone uses? A different technique? A way to dry them quickly?
