Cleaning my brushes!

Friday, August 03, 2012

Now cleaning my brushes is something that up until recently I didn't do very often (awful I know!) but since having my real techniques brushes I knew I had to look after them.

Now I'm not saying what I'm doing is the right way but it's the way that works for me.

First of all I dip the brushes into lukewarm water. I then take some baby shampoo and brush that into my brush. I then swill the brush into the water to take out as much make up as possible. The water turns a muggy orange colour! Eww! I do this until the water in the brush runs clean.

I also clean the case the brushes are in, there's no point in keeping your clean brushes in a dirty case. I give in a good scrub with a baby wipe.

And voila! Clean brushes. Just leave them to dry over night.

  2. i do the same :D good ol baby shampoo :D xo

  3. I've never washed my make up brushes before(!) - I know some people will be completely disgusted, I just wipe them with a make up wipe every now and then! I've read before that you should use baby shampoo though so I guess theres no time like the present to start a routine, thanks for reminding me I need to do this :)
