How to clean your make-up brushes tutorial!

Cleaning your make-up brushes regulary is important. Cleaning your brushes helps keep your bruhes soft and it helps remove:
  • Old make-up
  • Dirt and debris
  • Bacteria
  • Oils
  • Dead skin cells
If you have spots or sensitive skin then cleaning your make-up bruhes will help. Clean brushes will help with spots and soft brushes be kind to sensitive skin!

I never really knew about washing my make-up brushes until I watched a tutorial and researched online. I thought it would be a good idea to share my newly found knowledge with you all! So here is my make-up brush cleaning tutorial!

Firstly, rinse your brush under a tap -

Secondly, squirt a blob of shampoo onto your hand. I think I squirted out a bit too much! -

Thirdly, rub your brush in the shampoo. Make sure you cover the whole brush! -

Your brush should then look something like this-

Then rinse off the shampoo-

Once you have cleaned your brush leave it somewhere to dry. I dry mine on a clean towell over my radiator  -

When I wash my brushes they tend to take around 12 hours to dry. I always wash them when I  know I won't need to use them that day or have used them already.

I hope this post has been helpful. Thankyou for reading! xx
