Cleaning My Makeup Brushes

It's that time I dread, cleaning my makeup brushes.

I really, really, don't like cleaning my makeup brushes, mainly because I have far too many, but today only 3 needed cleaning, thank god! These were;

1. Real Techniques - Foundation Brush
2. Real Techniques - Expert Face Brush
3. Real Techniques - Stippling Brush


They were so dirty to begin with, as these three are the brushes I use most, I like to change up the foundation brushes I use, so I could easily use a different one every day! 

I don't really have a certain routine as such, I just use a shampoo and rub the brushes into my hand one at a time, I find if I rub the brush over my knuckles it creates more of a lather, so they become cleaner a lot faster! Which definitely gives me a lot more motivation to clean them more often. 

After they're lovely and clean, I place the brushes onto a towel and celotape them to it, then water is able to drain out of them, although there shouldn't be that much as I try to avoid getting water in the ferrel. 


And this is the end result, clean makeup brushes! :D I'd also like to add that you should definitely try using baby shampoo, it's an inexpensive alternative and works just as well as brush cleaner, if not better!

And yes, I have a towel with my name on it, I have no idea why or how, but I like it a lot! Haha.

  2. Wow, using Baby Shampoo is a great tip. I'm definitely going to try it because brush cleaner can be a bit pricey!!
