Did You Know? Cleaning Makeup Brushes
I do not need scientific research to tell me that my makeup brushes are dirty for the same reason I do not need it to tell me when my clothes, hair, and hands are dirty.
Not only does cleaning our makeup brushes get the nasties out, cleaning them also helps them to last longer.
Try using Thieves Dish Soap or Thieves Laundry Soap to clean your makeup brushes.
Just place a dab of either soap in a small glass bowl.
Dab and swirl the makeup brush around in the bowl gently. You will begin seeing all the makeup (and whatever else might be lurking) coming right off!
Use tepid water to rinse your brush. Too hot of water will melt the glue holding your brush onto its handle. Too cold of water can crack the glue. Rinse until the water runs clean. Repeat the cleaning process if necessary.
Dry your brushes flat on a towel with the tips of the brushes just hanging off the edge of the counter to allow air flow to dry all sides.
If you clean your brushes before you go to bed, your brushes should be dry in the morning depending on humidity. You can get ready for your day knowing you're only wearing today's makeup. Have an awesome day by the way!!!
