For those of my beauty gurus and make up lovers out there some of us have several makeup brushes. Some that we use on clients faces, our own set of brushes for our everyday looks , and then the elite collection. But no matter the cost or type of brush they all collect build up and need deep cleaning.
I’ve tried several different techniques even purchasing one of the self cleaners made by INNOLV off of Instagram. Not a bad idea just for some of the more delicate brushes i found it was pulling the hairs from the brush.
So i decided to take it back to the old school method of hand washing. With just a few household cleaning products , my brushes are looking as good as new.
All you need are:
1 cup of hot water
1/2 cup of vinegar
2-3 tablespoons of dish detergent ( dawn, dove, or Ajax)
1 Tall cup or vase, even a bowl
1 small comb. Or baby brush
Pour all the ingredients in and stir the concoction up lol. Place your makeup brushes in, make sure to not over fill you can always repeat the process for more brushes. Let them sit about 20-30 mins
There you have it! Short, simple, and effective it. I’m a firm believer in when you find something that works for you stick with it. Now with that being said there is always room for other ways to clean brushes just as well if not better.
Does anyone else have suggestions or other routines that they recommend or work great for them?
