The easiest way to clean your Make Up Brushes and Beauty Blender

Generation Instagram knows exactly how to contour and bake everything but pastries. The good news is, you girls look amazing. The bad news is keeping your beauty tools clean is more important than mascara.

Keeping your makeup brushes clean should be a regular part of your beauty routine. Brushes and Beauty blenders are always left with excess product, creams and diverse sorts of oil, due to the humidity and warmth in your cozy make up bag it’s easy for all the bacteria to throw a party and multiply themselves. Skipping your brushes shower can lead to clogged pores and pesky breakouts. Not to mention the fact that quality makeup brushes are expensive and should be taken care of. I’ll show you the easiest way to keep your investment neat and your skin clean.

Products I used

Make-Up brushes and Beauty Blender

The Masters Brush Cleaner and Preserver, you can also use some Baby Shampoo

A Fresh Towel

I clean my  brushes over the bathroom sink. It’s getting messy.

First you want to be close to your sink, prepare a fresh towel next to you and gather all your make up brushes and beauty-blenders, too. We will start with the beauty blender, since this is the tool I use the most.

1. Wet the beauty blender with lukewarm water.

2. Rub the beauty blender on to the bar of soap (get it all up in there)

3. Now you can force the excess product and soap out by gently (but not too gently – you’re not a beautyblenderhammam) squeezing the sponge.

4. Rinse the sponge

5. And repeat until all stains are gone

6. Your proof to a clean beauty blender is when the water you push out of the beauty blender is clear

7. Lightly dry with towel You can clean your brushes the same way, put the head of the make up brush under lukewarm water and gently rub the head on the bar of soap.

You get the exact same results when using baby shampoo instead. Rinse your brush and repeat till no product gets out of the brushes hair. After having cleaned your brushes, lay them flat on a clean towel to let them air dry. It usually takes a few hours to let them dry. Don’t use a hair dryer to dry your brushes faster, usually it does more harm than good and damages the brushes. I suggest you to clean your brushes every two weeks. You can tell that your brushes need that extra love and beauty treatment, when they’re no longer soft, and of course, if the makeup residue is cake-y and visible.

#Trick17: For brushes that are extra cake-y, use a dab of almond or olive oil to break down the residue before you wash and clean your brushes.
