So I read about what can be on your makeup brushes. Go ahead. Google it. Prepare to be grossed out. And I realized….I NEVER clean mine. In fact, I’ve had the same brush for about 5 years. Winning. At. Life.
After getting over how much I disgust myself, I came up with a game plan.
How much cleaner you make depends on how many brushes you want to clean at one time. I don’t wear a lot of make up so I just had the one powder brush to clean. But if you have more, just make sure the cleaner covers all of the bristles!
Here’s what I did. I used Young Living’s Thieves concentrated cleaner, Dr. Bronner’s Castile soap, and water. You could even get fancy and add lemon, tea tree or purification oils! Works great either way.
Thieves Cleaner is AWESOME by the way! I use it for everything, from countertops, to floors, showers, toilets, and yes, even streak-free mirrors! Clearly, makeup brush cleaners too. So versatile! Just don’t use the makeup brush to clean the toilet 😉
No chemicals and it’s safe to use around kids and pets! …and it smells like Christmas. It comes in a concentrated form that you mix one-capful-at-a-time with water and put in a spray bottle. It lasts forever! Getcha some.
