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!

  1. Fill a small dish with olive oil and another with baby wash.brush
  2. Wet your brush, 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.
  3. Rinse the brush under warm water thoroughly, gently squeezing the extra water out after you are finished rinsing.
  4. 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 rid of germs! Dirty brushes can cause pimples on your face from the bacteria on them, so cleaning your brushes is key to a clear complexion!

We all know putting on makeup is so much fun!  However, finding the right brush can make a world of difference to your look.  I have recently found a contouring brush that is double-ended.  It has two sets of bristles and can be used for different applications.  One end of the brush has a round shape and the other end has a flat, slanted edge.  The slant allows for perfect application precisely where I want it.  The slanted side also has flowing fibers which allow for more pigment distribution.  It is wonderful for applying bronzer!

The rounder edge is fluffy and helps to apply powder and blush.  It’s great for swirling powder-based products.  This brush is also fab for blending liquid concealer to hide my dark eye circles!  The next time you are at a beauty store, look for a brush of this kind.  You’ll be glad that you did!  Comment below and let me know if you have a brush that’s just right for you!

Cleaning your makeup brushes is very important, especially since we use them every day!  You don’t have to clean them after every use, but giving them a good scrub down once a month is ideal for healthy skin!  When it comes time for cleaning, it’s easy to whip up your own cleanser with a few ingredients that you can find in your kitchen!  Get the white vinegar and hot water ready!Chelsea Crockett- makeup brush cleanser

Start by boiling 1 cup of water and pouring the hot water into a cup or bowl.  While the water is still hot, add 2 teaspoons of white vinegar and stir immediately.  The vinegar may smell at first, but don’t worry, the smell will go away.  Dip your dirty brush into the cup or bowl and gently swirl the brush around the bottom.  Once most or all of the makeup has been removed from the brush, rinse the bristles under hot water and then cold water.  Lay the brush on a towel to air dry; do not try to dry the bristles.  Shape the brush with your fingers and they’ll be clean and ready to use in a few hours!

XOXO,

Chelsea
