Trouble cleaning your makeup brushes? Buying makeup brushes cleaners can just be an option!
Oh yes! you can make use of those cleansers you have at home as a substitute :)
- Hot water
- baby oil/any kind of oil
- dishwashing liquid
- old plate/ tray (for drying)
Step 1. Gather all your brushes. Pick one brush you can start with, I usually pick the largest brush (w/c is hardest to clean)
Step 2: Put a hot water on the dipper (just enough for the bristles of your brush to be soaked), add a few drops of dishwashing liquid and a few drops of oil.
Step 3: Soak your brush into the solution for several minutes, pressing the bristles to the base of the dipper will make your cleaning faster. Repeat it with the other brushes.
*note: one solution per brush
Step 4: Apply shampoo to the brush, massage it very lightly, then brush it to the palm of your hand in a rotating motion, pressing it once in a while, rinse thoroughly
Step 5: Apply conditioner to the brush, massage it very lightly, then brush it to the palm of your hand in a rotating motion, pressing it once in a while, rinse thoroughly
Step 5: Arrange the brush to the unused plate/ tray. Make sure the brushes are inclined so the water won't get into the neck of the brush, hence, it should go the end of the bristles.
Tip: You can make use of the plastic cover that sometimes comes with the brushes when you first purchase it. This helps taming the bristles of your brush while drying.
