Brushes play an essential part in my daily makeup routine. From eyebrows to lips I use a brush for every product I apply to my face! I have more make up brushes than the average person. Some brand new and some that haven’t been used yet. Nothing feels or looks better than a brand new brushes! Am I right? However after a while they get clogged up and you end up with marks in your foundation from where the the brush bristles are stuck together. That’s when you know you really need to clean your brushes!
Although it is recommended you clean your brushes once a week I am the first to admit I don’t do this weekly! How do you clean your makeup brushes? If you ask anyone how to clean make up brushes there is a 90% chance they will say baby shampoo or any other form of liquid soap. They do work but I find it never removes the product in the middle of the brush and doesn’t get the end result I truly want.
However taking inspiration from the Revolutions ‘pro-hygiene solid brush cleaner’ (which retails at £5.00) I use a bar of body shop coconut soap to clean my brushes and I absolutely love the end result! It leaves my brushes nice and soft and the brushes look as new! Its so simple to use. All you need to do is put the bar of soap under warm running water and swirl the brush, you would like to clean, on the bar of soap a few times. Once clean wash any remaining soap off the brush and leave to dry.
I cannot recommend this process more. It has revolutionised cleaning make up brushes. It is no longer a time consuming task. I just need to remember to do it more! Do you have any tips for cleaning your make up brushes?
