Beauty Solutions: How To Wash Makeup Brushes

Makeup brushes accumulate dirt and bacteria over time. Keep your beautifying tools clean with a simple routine.

You Will Need
A small bowl
Mild detergent
Paper towels
A covered container

Step 1: Prepare your cleaning solution
In a small bowl, mix warm water with mild detergent until the detergent dissolves.

Step 2: Soak brushes
Immerse the brushes completely so that the cleaning solution breaks down any residue and banishes bacteria. Leave in the solution for at least 10 to 15 minutes. For sensitive skin, use a drop of shampoo or mild skin cleanser as a cleaning agent.

Step 3: Rinse brushes
Remove the brushes from the bowl and rinse off the detergent with warm water.

Step 4: Dry brushes
Blot dry with paper towels and leave to air dry for at least four to six hours.

Step 5: Store in a covered container

Store makeup brushes in a clean, dry covered container. Repeat the cleaning process twice per month.

  1. Thanks for those tips on cleaning makeup brushes. I'm a newbie to the makeup game and I recently was wondering when and how I should clean my makeup items. That was very helpful and I will clean my items when I get home. :-)
