How to Clean Makeup Brushes


Once every few months, I like to take everything out of my makeup container and clean the contents – especially my makeup brushes. It makes such a difference and I’m always glad I did it. Just be sure to do this after you’ve applied your makeup for the day – the brushes need to dry overnight.

Here’s what you need:

  • Mild shampoo (baby shampoo would be great for this)
  • A bowl of warm water
  • Clean towel

What to do:

  1. Dip brush in warm water and gently squeeze bristles
  2. Place a dot of shampoo in the palm of your hand
  3. Gently swirl the brush in the shampoo
  4. Dip brush in warm water Β to rinse
  5. Gently squeeze bristles to remove excess water
  6. Once the bristles are clean, lay on a towel to dry overnight
