Oh. my. goodness. My makeup brushes were so shameful! When Britt shared the benefits of frequently cleaning your makeup brushes, I was hanging my head in shame! I mean seriously, as much as I use those things, how come I don't clean them more often!? What is wrong with me?!
Dirty makeup brushes can carry bacteria which cause acne, eye infections, and oily skin.
I know this is a terrible image to paint for you, but when I read that do you know what I thought about? You know how you peel after a bad sun burn, and how all of your skin flakes off. Yeah, my mind went there and all I thought about was dead skin in my makeup brushes.
Um hello?!?!?! Seriously, why don't I clean my brushes once a month?!
Starting NOW, this is about to change.
Fill some cups with warm water and a tablespoon of gentle shampoo (i.e. baby shampoo). Make sure that your cups are not so full that the metal piece is submerged in the water. You don't want that to rust and ruin your brushes.
Then rinse your brushes in warm water, reshape and allow your brushes to dry.
Have a great Wednesday!
