How to clean makeup brushes

Hello girl, 

today I’m gonna be giving few easy tips and tricks to clean your beauty weapons. It can be really lazy for some girls but it’s really important. However it’s usually ignored. It hardly takes 10 min, so let’s get started!!


Do I really need to clean it? Yes!! Due to serious hygiene reasons it’s recommend to clean your makeup brushes at least once in a month. I think that’s not something you can’t do. 

Why do I need to clean it? As brush contains bacteria, dead skin cells and dirt it’s important to clean them. If you have sensitive skin and is prone to acne clean more often. 

     Things you need :

  • Medium size bowl 
  • Oil
  • Baby shampoo/other will also work 
  • Tissue paper 
  • Old towel to air dry 


I’m using olive oil, you can use any oil you have at home. In a medium size bowl add 2-3 table spoon of oil, 2-3 tablespoons of water and 1 table spoon of baby shampoo give it a good stir, dip your makeup brush, using your fingers rub off all makeup residue. Wash only the tip of the brush in running water to get rid all the water oil mixture, warm water would be even better.(DO NOT wash the entire brush in the water as it my spoil it) wipe it with a clean tissue paper and air dry it on a old towel. 

(Tip- to dry your makeup brushes quicker you can use a hair dryer)
