- Baby Shampoo
- Warm Water
1. First, run your brush bristles under warm water. Don't run your brushes under hot water! Also keep the bristles pointing downwards. If your point your brushes upward you can loosen the glue and ultimately ruin your brushes.
3. Swirl brush into shampoo until lathered
4.Once you've washed the dirt out of your makeup brush, rinse in warm water. You can squeeze the excess water from your makeup brush by holding squeezing the bristles downward between your index finger and thumb
5. Lay your brushes flat on a towel and make sure you spread them out so they don't overlap. I like to wash my brushes in the evening so they can dry overnight. You can also turn your brushes before you go to bed to help them dry evenly (if you wash your brushes earlier in day you can turn them once every few hours to help them dry evenly) By morning your brushes should dry. Just make sure your brushes are completely dry before usage.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
That is awesome you find the motivation to wash yours every two weeks! Ugh I can't even remember the last time I wahsed mine. So bad I know! I might be crazy but I feel like my makeup doesn't spot as well when my brushes are super clean so I think that's why I don't wash them often, besides pure laziness lol!
I also use baby shampoo to wash mine. Sometimes I use dish soap on ones that are really bad like my foundation brushes!
You have loads of makeup brushes! :) you are very good if you wash your brushes once a fortnight, I only do it once in a blue moon when I remember. I've seen people use special gloves to wasn't their brushes but I really don't see what the need is for one of those when shampoo and rinsing it will do the same xx
I never use baby shampoo great idea if is gentle on baby will be gentle on the makeup brushes. Trying it out need to pick up baby shampoo thanks for the tip.
Great tips! I also use baby shampoo to wash my makeup brushes.
Wonderful post Pilar. I actually love washing my makeup brushes, am I weird?
Thanks! Lol! It's a dreaded task, but I try to dedicate myself to wash my brushes every two weeks! Remember I was telling you I've been experiencing oily skin this Summer? That's another reason I try to keep my brushes clean so oil and bacteria don't build up. I don't want to get a breakout on my face! I agree when my brushes have just been cleaned I notice that my makeup doesn't spot well either. I've used dish soap in addition to baby shampoo on my brushes too especially when they were really dirty!
Thanks! This was only part of my makeup brushes. Thankfully the other brushes were clean. I think I seen the gloves you're talking about. I just use shampoo and water. That cleans my brushes well!
Thanks and you're welcome! The baby shampoo leaves my makeup brushes clean, soft, and it also has a nice scent!
Thank you! You're not weird at all. I wish I liked washing my makeup brushes more. If I only have a few to wash then I don't mind, but when I finished washing the brushes in this post I was glad! lol
I used to wash them with baby shampoo but now I use some soap, I forgot the name of it and the beauty blender soap for all my sponges.
amazing post :)
Sounds like nice products to wash your makeup brushes!
Good job keeping your brushes clean! I usually put it off, and then end up washing all of my brushes at once. I need to be better about just keeping them clean a few at a time.
Thank you! When I don't wear makeup often then I end up washing a lot of brushes at a time if I've let them sit in my brush holders for a while lol. I try to keep consistent with washes my makeup brushes.
I do the exact same thing! It really cleans and preserves them! Excellent post Pilar!
Thank you! The baby shampoo also keeps my brushes feeling so soft
