Clean Us!! (no purchase necessary)

If you’re like most girls, you probably have a small collection of makeup brushes. A few you probably use every day, some are there for when you’re feeling a little creative, and others are just there hanging out in the back. We’ll call those the wallflowers.

Whether you use them every day, or just on occasion, they NEED to be cleaned. These are tools that have makeup, dirt, bacteria and free radicals chillin’ inside them. You can actually do some damage to your skin when you don’t properly clean them, SO I have a little trick that’s easy and costs me nothing.

Chances are, you have a shampoo bottle or 2 that sit in the back of your shower somewhere behind the new body wash and an old cream cleanser. Maybe it’s even made it’s way into the back of your linen closet, where I keep the products I’ve tried but don’t love and don’t have the heart to throw away just yet. Dust that shampoo bottle off and USE it to clean your makeup brushes!! You won’t feel so bad about wasting money and you won’t have to go out and buy that expensive brush cleaner from Sephora.

After I wash my makeup brushes with warm water and shampoo, I take a small travel-size spray bottle, fill it with rubbing alcohol and spray each brush with it before I lay them flat to dry. Now your brushes are clean, disinfected and ready to be used on your delicate face! I do this about once a week!
