How to Clean Makeup Brushes Using Things in Your Kitchen!
What a lot of people don't know is that you need to wash your makeup brushes every other time you use them, or at the very least, once a week. Not washing your brushes is terrible for your skin, because bacteria lingers on them in old and expired products. The bacteria can cause acne and breakouts and other unwanted blemishes! Granted, brush cleansers can get very expensive, and if you do actually wash them every time you use them, then you probably don't want to go through a bottle a week. So, I thought I would share how I clean my makeup brushes with you.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
a plate (paper, plastic, or ceramic)
anti-bacterial soap (You can use regular soap, but anti-bacterial will actually slough away all of the bacteria that can lead to acne and breakouts!)
1. Place a small dollop of olive oil on one side of the plate, and a few pumps of soap on the opposite side.
2. Swish the brush back and forth on the plate, so the olive oil and soap is distributed evenly throughout the brush hairs.
3. Rinse the brush with cool water, being very gentle as you squeeze out the dirt and product buildup.
3. Leave them to dry, but don't stand them up straight to dry!
And you're done!
See how easy that was? I have gotten my brush cleaning routine down to 10 minutes, and then I have beautiful, soft, squeaky clean brushes to use the next time I apply my makeup! Any questions? Leave them in the comments along with any requests! XOXO
