The Easy Way To Clean Your Makeup Brushes.

20 comments

A few months back I spent so much time looking for the best products to use to clean my makeup brushes. Do you know what I found out? The three best things to use.. Water, washing liquid and hair conditioner.


Keeping your brushes clean should be an essential part of your routine. It keeps them bacteria free and also helps to get a flawless look when applying your products. I do this once a week, normally on a Sunday morning so they are clean and dry ready for a new week. 

All you need to do is find a clean bowl, pour some washing liquid into it and add a couple of drops of water.. 



Step 1 - Once you've got your washing liquid and water in the bowl, dip your brush into the bowl and then rub the brush all over your hand. You'll find all the old product coming out all over your hand :)

Step 2 - Rinse under running water. Always make sure to keep the brush facing downwards. This will help to stop water getting inside the brush and loosening the glue. 

Keep rinsing until the brush is clear of dirt and washing liquid.. 

Step 3 - Squeeze out all of the water. 

Step 4 - Get some conditioner into your hand. If it's good enough for your hair then it's good enough for those brushes! 

Step 5 - Rub the conditioner into the brush. This is going to help keep the bristle all nice and soft. 

Step 6 - Rinse, rinse, rinse until the brush is free from conditioner. Make sure you squeeze all the excess water out as much as you can. 

Voila - It really is as simple as that.. I then lay them out on a towel to let them dry which normally takes a few hours.

  4. This is such a useful post! I was using a bursh cleaning solution that came with my bare minerals brushes but since it ran out I haven't wanted to purchase another, now I don't have to as this is a much better alternative for cleaning my brushes! Thanks for sharing
