Ever wonder how to get your makeup brushes super duper clean without having to spend over the top? Well, I have just the post for ya! Have you heard of Dawn dishwashing liquid? Okay, we’re already off to a great start.
I normally use olive oil and Dawn dish soap, but you can use any olive oil & dish soap you want. I usually go for dish soap that is really good at cutting though grease. I found this huge size at Costco. I’ve also seen a mini size at Dollar Tree. Can’t beat that on any day. When it comes to olive oil – I just use what I have in the house at the time.
For the record, I am using my daughter to demonstrate so I can photograph the pictures for this post. Incase you were wondering. Lol.
I also use the same technique only this time under running water (warm temperature). I do this until the water runs clean. No soap, no makeup.
It is recommended to clean your brushes after every use, especially, after using liquid products. I think if you are only using your brushes on your skin it would be good to clean them at least once a week. If you have time and the energy go ahead and clean them after each use. The cleaner the better. Right? Voila! I rest all my brushes along side the sink – in a well ventilated area to dry. This works fabulous for your beauty blenders too!!! My brushes are dry by the next morning.
I hope this post was helpful. I remember when I was first getting into makeup – I didn’t know how to clean my makeup brushes. I didn’t have a clue how often to clean them or what products to use to clean them with. Gosh I was a mess.
Till next time, have a wonderful 4th of July and be safe.
