This is an "all things DIY" blog...so cleaning your makeup brushes without buying anything fancy...definitely counts as "Doing it yourself"!
Makeup Brushes are an investment, am I right?! Mine are nowhere near high quality, but I did spend a nice amount of money on them, so I'd like to keep them nice. There are tons of different solutions out there, but they're PRICEY! I have seriously found the all time best solution and you can make it with what you've already got in your pantry.
You will need-
- Olive Oil
- White Vinegar (no we're not making salad dressing!)
- & Liquid Dish Soap
Simply mix one part of each into a tall glass
I stick all of my brushes into the solution and let them hang out for about 20 minutes. The vinegar kills bacteria, the dish soap cleans all of the makeup off the brush, & the olive oil acts as a conditioner to keep them soft on your pretty face. :)
After 30 minutes I scrub them. I just take them on my hand and swirl the brush around to get all of the makeup out. Rinse in some clean water & repeat until everything is clean!
All you have to do after that is lay em out on a paper towel, & let them air-dry. (Usually over night). I take a disinfecting wipe and wipe down the handles as well, and then they're as clean as a whistle!
I do this every 2-3 weeks to keep them looking nice! I've had my brushes over 2 years now, and they're in like-new condition. Boom!
