How do you clean yours?

For me there is nothing more frustrating than cleaning makeup brushes. It is one of those tasks I dread and can put off.  However you shouldn't skip cleaning your makeup brushes ... Can you imagine Monet painting the Waterlillies with dirty brushes??? I think not!

Makeup brushes and tools are the key to perfect, flawless makeup.  If they are dirty, well who knows what grime and yucky stuff you are applying to your face.  Also, you dip you brushes into your eyeshadow for example... Your just spreading the germs around. It's not good.

I have found that once I started to take care of my brushes, my brushes then took care of me by not making me break out with blemishes. So my advice is clean clean clean!

I like to clean my brushes at least once a week using Johnson's Baby Shampoo.  Obviously this is super gentle for washing baby hair, so this is perfect for taking good care of your tools.

I have made a little video of how I like to clean mine, pretty simple all you need is a dirty brush, water and Johnson's. Once you start cleaning you won't stop!

  1. I use Dr Bronner's liquid soaps to clean my one makeup brush, no wait a minute I now have two :)

  2. I use hand soap to clean my brushes, The best I've found is the Bee lovely handwash by Neals Yard!

  3. Washing makeup brushes is one of my least favourite things in the world although I do love using a just cleaned brush. I use a makeup brush shampoo that I picked up in a recent ELF haul although to be honest it's not that great - think I might buy a bottle of baby shampoo on my next Boots trip!

  4. I simply use a bar of gentle soap like Dove, but I don't do it as often as I should, so lazy!
