Beauty Talk: How to clean your makeup brushes

makeupbrushes

Ok not an all together fun chore, but a necessary one and one that you probably don’t do often enough? Am I right?

How often should you clean your makeup brushes? About once a month they should get a deep clean.

I start off by filling my clean bathroom sink half way with warm water and several drops of my trusty Basic H2.

Then I dump all my makeup brushes into the sink and let them soak for about 20 minutes.

I swish each around in the soapy water before I rinse them off.

If a brush is particularly dirty, like my foundation brush can get then I’ll add a few drops of Basic H2 ┬ádirectly onto it rub it in and then rinse.

Then I dry each on a clean towel and let them dry on a clean dry towel for a few hours.

If I need to hurry up the drying time I’ll hit them with the hair dryer for a few seconds before putting them away all nice and clean.
