Love Thy Brushes !!!

Hi everyone ...

Me back with another post ... This time I decided to share how I clean my makeup brushes... Its no rocket science .... But I decided to do a post about it - WELL JUST FOR THE HECK OF IT  . . . !!!

Everyone uses their own cleaning procedures and technique.... I try new techniques myself ... Dis time I tried the Michelle Phan Method ... hehehehehe... with a little twist of mine. . .   :)

So I start out with - Any Kind of Baby Oil, Any Shampoo (I use Dove) and lastly, Conditioner.

Then I take a plate and pour Baby oil onto the plate and Shampoo... like so...

Swirl your brush onto the mixture - The shampoo and oil help in removing pigments and makeup. The oil helps in removing traces of makeup as well as conditions your brushes bristles....

I squeezed off the mixture of shampoo and oil -- See how the mixture is removing all the old makeup?

Lastly I clean the brushes under running tap water and further condition the bristles of my brushes by swirling them in a mixture of water and Conditioner (1:1). Wash off the conditioner and you will notice how extra soft your brushes have become. . .

 Lastly wipe the brushes dry ... blot out excess water and dry your brushes by tilting them downwards on a towel..  Keep them slanting on the towel so as to allow the water to seep out of the bristles....Leave it overnight ...

The next morning - Your brushes will be GOOD AS NEW !!!! 

So tell me - How do you clean your makeup brushes ????
