How to Clean your Makeup Brushes {easily}

Every morning when I use my makeup brushes I think to myself, I really need to clean these. I would say that I probably go every two weeks without cleaning them, because lets face it, who remembers or has time. So that being said, tonight I was enjoying my second glass of wine, re-watching Pretty Little Liars, and I remembered that I wanted to clean my brushes. When I first started cleaning them I looked online and found all these crazy weird ways to clean makeup brushes. Until I found (on Pinterest) a quick way to clean your brush with shampoo.

We all have shampoo (I hope) so it seemed like the quickest way. Ever since then I have been cleaning my brushes the same way.

Step 1. 

Take a small bowl, fill with warm water, add shampoo, and stir.

Step 2. 

Put brushes in and let soak for a minute.

Step 3. 

Stir brushes around and you will see the residue coming off (it’s kinda gross).


Step 4. 

Rinse brushes with warm water, re-fluff, and lay flat to dry on a towel.

Really easy, right? This has been my go-to for quite some time now and just need to remember to do it more often! What tips and advice for cleaning brushes do you have? Tell us in the comments below!
