I decided to share on how I wash my makeup brushes, I used to use baby shampoo, but had a hard time washing my foundation brushes, especially my flat top kabuki brush. So I changed to using olive oil and dish soap.
The olive oil just melts the makeup off the brushes and the dish soap disinfects the brushes.
So If you want to see a simple and cheap way to wash your brushes which does not require any fancy brush cleaner, keep reading
I wash my brushes once a week
I wash my foundation brush every two uses.
So lets get started, first you need some olive oil dish soap
Take a plate and pour equal parts on it
Wet the brush slightly and stiple it into the oil and soap
Then take the brush and sweep it side to side on your palm.
Keep rinsing and using more oil and soap until the brush is completely clean
I suggest using brush guards like these to keep the shape of your brushes while they dry.
You want to elevate the brushes like this so all the water drains out of the brush and no water goes into the barrel, if the water gets into the barrel, this will cause the glue to weaken which will cause your brushes to shed.
Just let dry for a few hours and then they are ready to use again.
Thank you so much for visiting, tell me in the comments what you use to wash your makeup brushes.
