Pinterest Tips: Pass or Fail? (Cleaning Makeup Brushes)

So this week I tried out the following tip from good ole Pinterest:


The last time I cleaned my brushes was….well, never.
Why has it never occurred to me that they need to be cleaned?

It was pretty straightforward:

  • Add a few drops of Johnson’s baby shampoo to a shallow glass of water
  • Swirl brush around in solution (don’t submerge the metal part)
  • Rinse under warm water
  • Squeeze out excess water, reshape, and lay flat to dry

I couldn’t believe how much makeup came out of these brushes!
Definitely calling this one a success.

Now I just have to remember to clean these bad boys regularly…

  1. Some makeup is greasy. I use a little Dawn dish washing liquid and it cleans off the professional makeup used for tv or movies.
