Makeup brushes are one of the most-used items in our beauty arsenal. They help us put on our foundation, bronzer, blush, powder, and everything else you can imagine. Because they are used so much, they can start to gather bacteria and germs and need to be cleaned at least once a month. Here is how to make your own homemade brush cleaner to get those babies looking as good as new!
- Fill a small dish with olive oil and another with baby wash.
- Wet your brush, then pour a little olive oil and a little baby wash onto a saucer. Work the wet brush into the mixture, swishing it around and using your fingers to mix the oil and baby wash into the bristles.
- Rinse the brush under warm water thoroughly, gently squeezing the extra water out after you are finished rinsing.
- Lay out a paper towel and lay the brush on it, propping the brush handle up so that it is higher than the bristles. Allow the brush to air dry over night.
Do this sequence with all of your brushes to get them squeaky clean and to kill those pesky germs. Dirty brushes can cause pimples on your face from the bacteria on them, so cleaning your brushes is key to a clear complexion!
