Squeaky Clean Makeup Brushes

Hey guys, today I’m showing you how I wash my makeup brushes.



What I use


Rubbing Alcohol (to kill any bacteria)


Usually I’m really bad when it comes to washing my brushes and will only do it if I have no more clean ones left to use.. which is terrible I know. When I do clean my brushes I like to give them a deep clean so I’ll use whatever shampoo and conditioner I have at the time, and rubbing alcohol.

I start by getting some shampoo on a damp brush and swirling it on the palm of my hand to work up a lather, I then run it under lukewarm water to wash out the shampoo and product. I then dip my brush into the rubbing alcohol to get rid of any bacteria (this is especially good if you have acne prone skin) and then will condition the bristles using whatever conditioner I have on hand. I then rinse the brushes till the water runs clear and lay them out on a clean towel to dry.

I really like using this method although it is a bit tedious and time consuming to do 3 steps,  it really deep cleans the brushes and means that there’s no stains from the products. Some people like to dry their brushes upside down but unfortunately I don’t have the space to have brushes laying all over my house so I just lay them out on a flat surface to dry.

I have been using this method since I first got into makeup years ago and all my brushes work just as well as they did when I first got them.
