How To Clean Make-up Brushes

Today my post is going to be about something I only recently learnt myself through the wonderful invention of Google, and that is an easy way to clean make-up brushes without expensive cleaners...

I recommend you do this maybe on a Friday/Saturday evening, giving the brushes plenty of time to dry before you next use them. Alternatively you can clean them whenever, I just think the evening is better giving them the night time to dry.

Apologies for lack of photos, I had to use my phone as I forgot to charge my camera(oops).

You will need:
~ Dirty Brushes!
~ Cup of warm water
~ Tiny Dish/Cup (Optional)
~ Fairy/Washing Up liquid
~ Liquid Make-up Remover (Optional)
~ Old Towel


Lay down your towel, with your brushes beside it, mix some fairy liquid in with the warm water.


Take a brush, dip 3/4- 1/2 of the hairs in the cup of warm water. 


Do circle motions similar to how you apply make up on the towel. Repeat steps 2 and 3 a couple of times until the majority of the soap is out of the brush. Quickly rinse under a cold tap and lay down to dry over night.


For brushes with more harsher colours/products on, including lip brushes or eye shadows, its better to use a make-up remover as it breaks down product better. Simply pour a tiny amount of make-up remover into a dish, then dip the brush 3/4- 1/2 of the way into the dish and do the same steps as Step 3.

Hope this helped!
