Because you asked…here’s a recipe for a natural way (NO harsh chemicals) to clean your makeup sponges and makeup brushes at home. This is what I use too.
However, for my beauty business I do extensive cleaning and also use SterileLight Disinfecting case.
1-2 tablespoons of Castile soap
1 1/2tablespoons white vinegar
1 cup of warm water (Use a bit more water if you would like to)
12 drops of lavender Tea Tree oil (if you prefer less essential oil and the scent use 6 drops) I love Aura Cacia essential oils.
Wash your brushes in the water with the above.
A lipstick brush or a foundation brush will be more concentrated and need EXTRA attention. Remove any slick buildup and continue wash and swishing around in the water longer. Also PRESS OUT this residue in a paper towel and make sure all the color and product is gone out of the brush.
Squeeze out the residue and rest your brushes on a paper towel overnight.
Next morning they will be dry,fresh and ready for you to make up your pretty face!
Don’t let makeup and your facial oils mount up on your makeup brushes and sponges. Don’t spread bacteria and use makeup brushes and sponges daily for weeks. Wash them at least once a week. These are tough pandemic times. You can’t be too clean or too safe. Can we? AND you don’t want those unwanted zits!
