Washing Make-up Brushes

Heyyyy everyone, so today I am going to do a tutorial on how I wash my make-up brushes. I think that washing your make-up brushes is really important as it helps to keep your skin in a good condition and prevent the build-up of spots on your face. So lets get on with the washing....

The first thing is to get everything you need ready before you start. Obviously you need your make-up brushes and also a sink full of cold water, and some shampoo. I like to use a fairly cheap one so I don't waste the expensive ones, today I am using the Alberto Balsam in sun kissed raspberry. Also I use cold water to wash the brushes in as it ensures that the glue holding the brush together doesn't melt.

First off you need to wet the end of your dirty brush. I do this by just dipping the end of the brush in the sink.

Then put a small amount of the shampoo on your hand, don't use too much other wise it will be a waste of shampoo.

Now lather up the shampoo to create a foam. The colour of the foam should be a pale brown colour when the make-up starts to come out of the brush.

 Then dip the brush in the water to clean off the shampoo. Make sure you get all of it out so that you don't get any in your make-up, also the brush won't dry properly.

Repeat with all of your brushes and place them out to dry.

I advise that you place the ends of your brushes hanging over an edge because if they were laid on the middle of a table it may deform the shape of them. Ideally leave your brushes to dry for 24 ours though I find that 12 hours is long enough.

I hope you all enjoyed today's post and liked the idea of this. I don't know about the rest of the world but here in the UK it is half term. What are you guys doing for halfterm??

  2. This was so helpful and easy! I hate those post where they tell you to go and buy expensive things you don't need!
