A majority of us ladies forget to clean our makeup brushes. You should clean your brushes often to remove the excess makeup, dirt, oil and bacteria because not only will a dirty makeup brush give you an average finish, but also cause your skin to breakout. Now, if you check for videos on how to clean your brushes, you will find a tone of them out there especially DIY ones, albeit, not all those methods are effective. You have to remember that makeup brushes are pretty expensive and what you don’t wanna do is destroy them. That said, you have to be gentle.

We will show you a super easy and affordable way to clean your brushes. All you will need is extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil, an anti-bacterial handwash (you can also shampoo instead) and a small tray.

Instructions:

1. On a tray, pour a bit of coconut or olive oil and your antibacterial soap.

The oil helps keep the brushes softer and prevents the bristles from being too dry.

2. Dab your dirty makeup brush on the oil and antibacterial soap then rub the brush in a circular motion on the palm of your hand.

3. Repeat this for all the brushes.

4. When through, using luke warm running water from a tap, rinse off the brush, again, by rubbing the brush on the palm of your hands till you see the water become clear and all the brown color from your foundation gone.

When rinsing, do not put the brush straight up facing the water, to prevent the water from going into handle of the brush.

5. Squeeze out the excess water from your brushes, spread them out on a towel and leave them to dry.
