How to clean your makeup brushes

There’s nothing like clean makeup brushes! Your makeup glides on so much easier and there’s no need to stress over bacteria. Personally I don’t waste my money on expensive brush cleaner. I make my own.

To clean your brushes on a daily basis:

Mix equal parts water and alcohol in a spray bottle.

Spray brushes after use and wipe gently on a washcloth.

Once a month:

Deep clean your brushes with your favorite shampoo and tepid water. I use Davines Melu shampoo, I love the way it smells and makes my bristles shine.

Fill your bathroom sink 1/4 of the way and mix in a few drops of shampoo.

Swirl the brushes around a bit to loosen the makeup deep inside.

I allow my brushes to soak for about 15-30 minutes.

Drain the water and rinse each brush with cool water.

Smooth bristles to original shape and allow brushes to dry overnight. Check out this cool idea, using hair bands to suspend your drying brushes..
