I SEE many women’s cosmetic bags and makeup cases and I cringe at the sight of their makeup brushes and sponges!!!
I CAN’T believe how dirty they allow them to get.
All kinds of germs and more are doing the salsa on their brushes and sponges.
So bad I am afraid to touch them! Girls don’t realize how this affects the way your skin looks and your makeup too! Dirty brushes can even cause breakouts on your face too.Here is my recipe for cleaning your makeup brushes at home.
How To Clean your Makeup Brushes & Sponges:
Wet the brush 3/4 of the way at the metal collar.
Place a few drops of liquid soap in the palm of your hand. Gently rub the brush for at least 20 seconds .
Rinse brush thoroughly in lukewarm water until all the dirty watery residue comes out.
Add a few sprays of vodka diluted with distilled water (not tap) from a spray bottle. Press out the residue until all the residue comes out.Vodka can make your makeup brushes dry faster or you can use diluted rubbing alcohol.
Dry brushes on a paper towel at the edge of your counter over night.
Fresh as a daisy!
YES, you can use a brush cleaner made with chemicals but this is just as good and on the cheap and chic.
Or you can use makeup brush cleaning wipes. Please do not use baby butt wipes. They are NOT meant for your beautiful makeup brushes and on your face they are meant for baby’s bottoms.They can fill your brush with things that will cause allergic reactions or make them greasy.
