How To Naturally Clean Makeup Brushes
Brushes are an important part of make-up application that I have been neglecting. I’ve decided to start investing in more high-end brushes, but since I don’t have a ton of money to spend buying all new make-up brushes, I’ve decided to start taking better care of the ones I have.
Did you know you should be cleaning your make-up brushes once a month, but preferably once a week?
Clean makeup brushes prevent infection from the bacteria that can build up on them.
Here is an easy way to clean your brushes:
What you will need:
- 1 Tablespoon Witch hazel (I use one with rose water and aloe vera)
- 3 Tablespoons Liquid glycerin soap (like Dr. Bronner’s)
- 3 drops Tea Tree Oil
- 3 drops Lavender Oil
- 1 cup water
- In a bowl, add 2 tablespoons of the glycerin soap, the witch hazel, tree tree oil, and lavender oil.
- Add in 1 cup of water.
- Swirl brushes in solution for a few seconds. Allow the brushes to then soak in the solution for about 15 minutes.
- Remove the brushes from the (now dirty) solution and wash brushes with the remaining 1 tablespoon of glycerin.
- Rinse with warm water.
- Pat dry on a clean hand towel.
- Allow to air dry for a few hours.
