I ❤️ my makeup brushes. All of them. When one finally wears out and I have to get a replacement it makes me a little sad because I’m losing a brush and then I get excited because I have a new one to love!
Here are my brushes!
I store them in that mug I decorated myself so they all have plenty of room. Yes that was a toothbrush you saw in there I prefer a soft toothbrush to handle my eye brows then the expensive brow brushes you buy in the store which always feel too rough for me.
My brushes need a good cleaning and I’m not as good about it as I should be. But I thought I would share with you what I do when I do clean them properly.
For a daily quick clean especially for my eye shadow brushes (use lots of different colors and shades and need the same brush) I use ELF brush cleaner.
The smell is wonderful. It works great and I think has helped to make my brushes last longer. This is a basic spray on and work out the makeup on a papertowel type effort. Not hard and definitely quick enough I can do in the morning. I just put them back in my cup to dry.
For a major cleaning I use whatever face wash I’m currently using. My thinking behind this is that it’s gentle enough for my face it should definitely take away any oils that may remain on the brushes and I know it’s not going to break me out or cause me any problems. Currently this is what I’m using for face wash and to clean my brushes.
What girl doesn’t have this face wash around? I have an abundance of sample size beauty items right now so I’m trying to use them all up before I go and buy full size stuff again. Does anyone else do this?
If anyone is interested I could always do a video or photo shoot for cleaning my brushes. I can show you how fun and easy it really is! Let me know if you would be interested.
How do you clean your makeup tools?
Until next time stay beautiful!
