How to Wash Makeup Brushes so they’re good as new!
So I thought I would do super quick post about how I clean my makeup brushes! I love for my brushes to be good as new after every wash, and it took me a while to find the perfect technique so I figured others could benefit from a post like this one!
I use a sensitive skin soap bar, fragrance free of course, lukewarm water and a plastic bowl. This method is quick and easy and only requires the bar soap and the water!
Here’s the step by step:
First, dip the brush into the bowl of lukewarm water.
Then, using the bar of soap in a similar way you would use the palm of your hand, move the brush around on the soap.
Add more water when you experience heightened friction. When the foam runs white, your brushes are clean!
Rinse thoroughly, shape, and lay down to dry.
Make sure you don’t sit them up in the cups until they excess water has completely drained or you could risk damaging the glue that holds your brushes together.
Every other week or so, a light oil added to this routine will condition and soften your brushes for smooth and scratch free application every time! I am very particular about the brushes I use for eye and liquid products so I tend to wash those at least once a week.
