You Need to Clean Those Brushes!
Posted on September 14 2015
It’s something I should do much more often. It’s not eating more vegetables (which I totally need to do too! Do Veggie Straws not count?!) or even taking vitamins. It’s cleaning my makeup brushes! Anyone else with me? The last thing I want to do after work is scrub out last week’s blush.
But I finally did it! Those babies are as clean as a whistle. I had to question if I was brushing little clouds on my face this morning. So it was worth it! *sigh* I guess I’ll have to make it a regular thing.
Now whenever I clean my brushes, I usually use baby shampoo. Cheap and effective. I’ve heard that Dawn dish soap is great too! I typically get a Solo cup, put a splash of water in the bottom with a dollop of baby shampoo. I soak my brushes in the solution and swirl them in the bottom of the cup. It gets the majority of the gunk out.
I do a second cleanse in the palm of my hand to really get them sparkling. I go to town swirling it while running it under some water. When the water runs clear, you’re done! I wring out as much water from the brush as I can and reshape it. I put it on a washcloth to dry overnight. Voila! Clean brushes!
Now awhile back I heard about the Sigma Brush Cleaning Glove. Great concept, don’t get me wrong. It helps give your brushes a deep clean. But look at it. It looks like an oven glove! I’m not paying $39.00 for a freakin’ silicone oven glove I can pick up at Target for a fraction of the price. <--was that="" just="" a="" rant="" p="">
