Hello, everyone! I have a question for you: How often do you clean your make-up brushes? Or maybe I should ask have you ever cleaned your make-up brushes???? I know……Where are you supposed to get time to add one more task to your ever-growing list of things to do? However, this one is kind of important. Our skin is our body’s largest organ, and we need to protect it any way we can. I don’t know about you, but I use my make-up brushes every time that I apply make-up, which is almost daily. If we don’t clean those brushes, the make-up just builds up on the bristles and gets stale. Then we are rubbing old gunk on our faces along with fresh new make-up every time. Don’t worry, though. I’m here to tell you how to clean make-up brushes. It is easy and fast.
I store my brushes in a mint julep cup on the top of my make-up counter. Since we only drink mint juleps one day a year around here, it’s nice to give those beautiful cups some other responsibilities.
About once a month I clean them. After I have applied my make-up for the day, I simply get each one wet……
and then wash each of them gently with shampoo.
Then I rinse them till the water runs clear.
I tap them on the side of the sink to remove extra water and then let them dry with the brush end hanging over the sink. That way any remaining water can drip into the sink, and they get exposed to the air. By the next morning, they are clean and fluffy and ready to go to work again.
That’s all there is to it. Why don’t you give it a try?
