Loads of people have been asking me in the classes about what to use to clean brushes and how often should you clean them….
Firstly, I wash my makeup brushes weekly , but I also use my brushes far more than most…so my suggestion, at least once a month if not once every two weeks.
As far as what to use, don’t waste your money on special brush cleaning products, a small bit of baby shampoo should suffice.
I have been using the Inglot brush cleaner, I find it works well and was inexpensive.
When washing your brushes follow these quick steps and you will have perfectly clean makeup brushes.
Step 1: Run your brushes through luke warm water , rinsing out an excess makeup.
Step 2: Prepare a bowl of warm water and a little squirt of baby shampoo into a bowl and gently swirl brush around the bowl.
Step 3: Work up the lather into the brush, if you need to work the brush around the palm of your hand.
Step 4: Rinse the brush tips under the running water again, repeat previous steps until the water runs clear from the brushes.
Step 5: Make sure you comb the brushes back into shape , this is important because the shape that the brushes are left in to dry will be the way they stay.
Step 6: Lay a layer of kitchen roll out and lay brushes flat for at least 24 hrs.
