I am a bit embarrassed to admit that I don’t remember the last time I cleaned my makeup brushes. That’s a bit gross if you stop and think about it so instead of dwelling on it and grossing myself out, I did something about it.
Move brush around in the cleanser and then run under warm water, rubbing brush in your hand to get out the excess soap (and to watch as all that old makeup seeps out of the bristles). Make sure not to allow water further down the brush so you don’t melt the glue holding everything together. Then dry with the bristles pointing downward, either by hanging on a homemade contraption or propping the ends up on a rolled up towel and letting the bristles fall onto a paper towel.
If I can do it, you can do it…and then we’ll all have clean makeup brushes! 😉

When was the last time you cleaned your makeup brushes?
Have you ever tried making your own cleaners (or even makeup) before?
