Wash your brushes using Baby Shampoo

Thursday, July 25, 2013

Is it just me or does it feel like I've been talking a lot about brushes today? It's important that brushes are being talked about because they are the most important tool in your make up kit. They are what you use to help apply your make up, duh! So of course knowing more about them and taking care of them should be a necessity. The importance of cleaning your brushes, is that you want to make sure they are clean before using them on your face. And if you're acne-pron, a cleaner brush will help you to not break out as much.

Before, I used dish detergent, hand soap, and even vinegar to clean my brushes. This time I tried out just using baby shampoo. That's it. Only baby shampoo. Now what I did was just simply rinse off my brush with warm water, swirl it around in the baby shampoo, and rinse again! Vuala! You now how a nice clean brush.

What I found out from using baby shampoo, was that my brushes felt softer after rinsing them. Shaping them right after was much easier as well. Here's a tip I learned from Bubz Beauty. Take the towel that you're going to use to dry your brushes and roll up the ends. Put the end of the brush on the leveled part, and the brush face down towards the flat side of it. This elevation is going to make it harder for water to end up where the glue and bristles meet. That way, the glue won't get unstuck and the bristles will last longer. For dual end brushes, I just let them dry normally and not elevated.

This was the best method of washing my brushes in my opinion. The baby shampoo is strong enough to clean the brushes, but gentle enough where it won't destroy them. If you wear make up on a daily basis, I suggest washing them every week. Every couple of days if you use foundation daily. What ways have you cleaned your brushes? Leave a comment down below! From one beauty lover to another, see you soon!
