How I Wash My Makeup Brushes

Cleaning your make-up brushes is very important but I don't think enough make-up users realise just how important it actually is. Any bacteria on your skin is being wiped all over that brush for you to then put even more bacteria that collects on the brush back onto your face! Yucky huh?! If you have problem skin such as acne or tendency to breakout often I recommend this is done as regularly as possible, at least once a week. For me, I try to do this once a week but realistically it probably gets done every 2-3 weeks. Guilty!

I don't have any fancy routine, I'm not totally sure myself on what the best way to do it actually is and I probably clean my brushes in the wrong way. But it seems to get them clean so it's good for me at the moment! 

Step 1. Go find all your brushes ready for the washing to commence, place them on a flannel.

Step 2. Run a sink of hot water.

Step 3. Take your first brush off of the flannel and dip the tip (hehe, it rhymes) in the water.This just gently prepares the brush and softens it.

Step 4. Take some shampoo (just normal hair shampoo) this isn't the cheapest option but you only need the teeny tiniest amount, put it on the end of the brush tip.

Step 5. Gently cleanse the brushes washing the shampoo in, this releases all of the grossness as you will see a lot of what looks like foundation, but is probably mucky stuff too.

Step 6. Rinse off in the sink, where you will see the water become a yucky colour (thats your foundation, bronzer, blusher, concealer ect!!!!)

I couldn't see why you wouldn't be able to splodge a bit of conditioner to make them soft afterwards, just like a hair routine! But this is up to you.

Hope this post gives you some tips! How do you wash your make up brushes?
