Because of that, my makeup brushes get GROSS! If you don't think they look bad here, wait to you see what they look like when they are clean!
I am way beyond delinquent in cleaning my brushes but after reading blog post after blog post on the importance of cleaning your brushes, I finally decided to jump on that bandwagon and see if it makes a difference.
What you'll need:
1tbs of white vinegar
1tbs of dish washing detergent
1 cup of water
Mix all three ingredients into a clear bowl
Simply wet each brush you are about to clean and then dip and swish around in the cleaning solution until no more makeup comes off. For my super dirty brushes, I freshened the solution to make sure they were getting clean. Then I rinsed them in water to make sure no more makeup was coming off.
Simply lay them out to dry overnight and you will be amazed as to not only how clean they are but how soft they become! You should clean your brushes once a month to help with breakouts and the life of your brushes. Just be sure to not clean them too often or the life of the brush will shorten. (It's a fine line).
