Here is a easy way to clean your makeup brushes.

  • Use a mild baby shampoo or any leftover shampoo you didn't like for your hair.
  • Take an napkin or sponge and wet with water and a dab of shampoo
  • Take the your brushes and wet, making sure water does not go into the handle.

    • For Flat Brushes( eyeshadow, eyeliner, etc)
      • With brush horizontal to sponge/napkin wipe brush across making sure not to disturb bristles
        • Do NOT press brush down, you will ruin it.
        • Wipe brush in the opposite direction of the brush bristles
      • Turn brush from one side to another until clean
      • Let dry

    • For Foundation Brushes
      • With the handle facing upward swirl your brush in a circular motion across sponge/napkin
        • Do not Smush Brush into napkin Sponge
        • Keep doing this until the napkin/sponge does not pick up any more dirt
        • Take brush and reform the shape with your hand gently
        • Allow to dry
