How To Wash Your Brushes

Are you a dirty girl like me?

Yes, I too am guilty of not washing my makeup brushes as suggested. And no, I’m not going to go into the disgusting details of what may be lurking in our brushes. So what’s the deal, how often shall we refresh?

We should clean our brushes once a week.  

Eek! Overdue?

Ok. I’ll make it ultra easy for us to be on schedule…it will be just as easy as Sunday morning, I promise.

Let’s Clean Our Brushes, Beauties

  • 1 Part white vinegar
  • 2 Parts water

Swirl brushes in solution for a bit.  Rinse with warm water. Lay out to dry.

That’s it! Easy peasy. We’ve totally got this.

No vinegar in the kitchen?  Replace the vinegar with shampoo (I’m assuming you are using the healthy stuff. If not, get thee to the  market to grab some vinegar!).
