With Style and a Little Grace: HOW TO - Clean your Make-up Brushes

HOW TO - Clean your Make-up Brushes

Ok Ladies, today we are talking cleaning your make-up brushes. When was the last time you cleaned yours? I know sometimes this task can fall to the wayside- guilty party right here. Your make-up brushes can hold bacteria and dirt so it is a good rule of thumb to try and clean them weekly. 
Experts say to clean your foundation/liquid brushes daily but I feel like that can be a little difficult to remember - once a week is a great rule for me. 


Rub your cleaner into the bristles of the brush and run through them to get all the product out

Rinse with warm water and repeat steps if brushes are extra full of product

Make sure all of the cleaner is out of the bristles

Lay out on a clean towel to air dry 

Make sure to leave horizontal all night so the brushes fully dry and bacteria doesn't get a chance to settle in the stem of your brush ( it can happen if you set upright in a container or on your counter)


SHAMPOO - This is my favorite option because it is so affordable and easily available. Johnsons Baby Shampoo is the best and it smells so good! 

PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP CLEANSER - There are a ton of great products out there that are made just to clean your brushes. There is one that I really want to try that you just wipe on your brushes.

FACIAL CLEANSER - Your cleanser is as gentle as shampoo and will get your brushes nice and clean as well.
