DIY MAKEUP BRUSH CLEANSER

DIY MAKEUP BRUSH CLEANSER & HOW TO SPOT CLEAN YOUR BRUSHES I saw this reciepe for a makeup brush cleanser and tried it and it worked just as good as the ones you would

buy from Mac or Sephora except it pretty much cost you nothing. You probably have most of the ingreidents

around your house and if you dont you can get them all at any drug store or grocery store. I use this

everytime I clean my brushes and they come out clean as ever! THINGS YOU WILL NEED: * 1 cup of Distelled water (bottled water) * 1/4 cup of Alcohol (preferably 70%) * 1/2 tbsp. of Dish washing soap * 1/2 tbsp. of Baby shampoo (if you dont have baby shampoo you can use regular) * 1 tbsp. of Leave in conditioner ( use a light liquid leave in conditioner, not a heavy creamy one) * A mixing cup * Empty bottle to put the cleanser into * (optional) a funnel to make it easier to pour the cleanser into the bottle 1. Gently stir all these ingredients together (pour each one in the order I listed them) *dont shake or stir it too fast 2. Pour mixture into your bottle (if you have a funnel it will be easier, if not no big deal) *Thats all and you need to make a brush cleanser, use this to spot clean your brushes.

HOW TO SPOT CLEAN YOUR BRUSHES You should really try and spot clean your brushes about a few times a week or more or if you dont have

a lot of brushes and your using them a lot. Deep cleaning should be done at the least once every two weeks.

Spot cleaning is also good because you dont have to let them dry for a long period of time, so you can do

this more frequently.

1. Take a makeup brush, your brush cleanser and get a paper towel. Fold the paper towl in half

**FYI** Make sure not to get the cleanser, water etc where the brush head ends and the handle meets. It

will end up rusting!

2. Lay the brush down on the paper towl and pour a little bit of the cleanser onto the bristtles, then work the

bristtles back and forth on the paper towl ( not too rough) and keep going back and forth

3. The way to tell if the brush is clean - you wont see anymore color on the paper towel, it will mostly wipe off clear. 4. Then lay the brush out to dry - take another paper towel and lay the brush flat with the bristtles hanging off

the end of the paper towel (this way both sides of the brisstles have room to dry.) **They dont take long to dry at all**

**With a flat brush your going to wipe it back and forth on the paper towel like I just told you above, but with a dome brush your going to pour the cleanser onto the brush while rotating it, then, wipe the brush in cicular motions instead of back and forth.

**Their you go, your brushes are clean!!** Hope you guys liked this try it out Smile

I like to use baby shampoo to clean my makeup brushes... It's safe to use (not harsh) and the Dollar Store brand works fine (so it's very CHEAP!).

Sorry about the format   I don't know why it came out like that, it definitely didn't while I was typing.  Hope you can still read it!!
