I hope everyone is having a splendid January!!! I wanted to talk to you all today about keep those brushes clean and how you can do it at home for cheap!
This is not something that I am claiming originality on but rather something I saw that worked for my brushes and I wanted to share with you to help your brushes.
Please note you should be washing and disinfecting your brushes daily, especially when running your own make up artist biz. If you cannot get to that I suggest at least 3 times per week and this does not take long at all so it is not time consuming. Not only is it good for your clients but it also it good to not dirty up those precious pores!
- a Bowl or deep plate
- 1 cap full of olive oil
- a tablespoon or 2 of either a shampoo that is free of chemicals, Dawn Dish Soap.
- 1 c hot water
Mix cup of hot water, and then olive oil and finally shampoo or dish soap in the bowl or plate. I do prefer this order because then my brushes smell good(yes weird I know). Start with 1 brush at a time and gently swirl the bristles into the solution, gently squeeze any water out of the brush but DO NOT WRING the brush or you may damage the bristles. Then wipe brush off on clean paper towel until there is not more makeup residue coming off the brush. Let the brush air dry. Repeat with each brush. Allow brushes to dry over night.
