How I Clean My Makeup Brushes

Hey cupcakes! As someone who loves makeup, I know how important it is to keep your makeup brushes clean... However, I didn't always keep my brushes clean.

After seeing a ton of products for cleaning brushes, I realized just how essential it is to keep your brushes dirt, oil, etc. free! If you don't clean your brushes, I really really REALLY suggest doing so... It will help your face stay clear and avoid bacteria growing in places it shouldn't :P Here is my routine for cleaning all of my makeup brushes :) Enjoy!

1. I suggest cleaning your makeup brushes AT LEAST once every two weeks... I usually try to clean them more frequently, but when I'm busy, this will do. First, you need to select all of the brushes you are going to clean.
I suggest all or your most frequently used!
2. Next, you will need to clean your brushes! I usually use regular soap, but you can purchase soap made just for brushes. Here's my method to get all the gross stuff off (but there are tons of other methods that work just as good!):

  • Run the water in a nice warm/hot temperature
  • Squirt some soap into one palm
  • Put the brush into the water and swirl around in the soap in your palm
  • After swirling it around for a bit, rinse it off in the water
  • Repeat if the brush is especially dirty

3. Spread out the hairs of the brush, and let dry on a hand towel.

4. Ta-da! Your brushes will be dry and ready to make you over again soon! :)
