HOW TO CLEAN YOUR MAKEUP BRUSHES

Header

Sick of winter, we are eager to get down with some spring cleaning! And a long overdue project we decided to tackle first was to clean our makeup brushes.

To tackle the job, we were too bored to use plain ole’ shampoo to clean these bad boys. So we took to Pinterest, and found an awesome looking brush cleaning solution conceived by Zorrie of the blog Sugar and Chic. This mixture both cleans and conditions your brushes, so we were sold. (Thanks Zorrie!)

What you need:

Your filthy makeup brushes

Dish Soap (we used an au naturale, fragrance-free brand)

Olive Oil

A plate or bowl

On your plate, mix equal parts olive oil and dish soap.

Take your brush, and mush it all together. The soap should start to foam, and begin to take on the color of whatever gunk was staining your brush.

Take your brushes to the sink, and rinse them well so that no soap remains. As Zorrie points out, be careful not to wet the part of the brush that is adhered to the handle, or your brush might eventually fall apart.

Once well rinsed, reshape the brushes so that they dry in their original shape, and you’re good!

May this be the beginning of a new, clean life for your revived brushes.
