How I Clean My Makeup Brushes + DIY Cleansing Ideas...

Hey Everyone!!! Today I'll be sharing with you some tips on How I Clean My Makeup Brushes and I'll be sharing some DIY Cleansing Ideas too, that will help to get the job done easily and at less cost. First of all cleaning your makeup brushes is as important as you clean your face. Cleaning makeup brushes save you from a lot of skin problems like outbreaks i.e acne, rashes, bacterial infections,etc. Yes, though we clean our face before applying makeup, the brushes come in contact with our skin all the time. The left over make up products on the brushes, the oils and even the dead cells or germs on skin, gets transferred to your brushes resulting in more germ build up when they are not in use. So, when you use the same brush over and over again you add on more germs and bacteria to you skin resulting in skin problems. So to avoid such stuff, we should clean our makeup brushes from time to time. I clean my makeup brushes in every one week or two. Trust me this habit has helped me maintain a clear skin reducing the outbreaks and rashes on my face.

Here I am using P.S. LOVE THIS MAKE-UP BRUSH CLEANSER and PS... BLEND & CLEANSE MAKE UP SPONGE CLEANER that I got from Primark Store, U.K for 2 GBP and 2.50 GBP respectively. These Makeup cleansers are really amazing and affordable and helps to clean the brushes super easily. You can use make up brush cleansers of any brand which are available in the market or online. Also; below are some DIY brush cleansing ideas that will help save you a lot of money on expensive products. I use Spot cleaning and Deep cleaning methods both depending on the use of my make up brushes.

So lets begin with How I Clean My Makeup Brushes + DIY Cleansing Ideas...

I use this P.S LOVE THIS MAKE-UP BRUSH CLEANSER for Spot cleaning specially for my eye makeup brushes as they are really tiny and don't require a Deep cleaning regularly. This product comes in a spray bottle and all you need to do is spray directly on the cosmetic brush bristles and clean it with a tissue. It can be used for both synthetic and natural hair bristles. Sometimes I like to pour slight amount of liquid from bottle, dip my brush and clean it with tissue if the brush is too dirty. This really helps me clean my brushes fast. Spot cleaning can be done in between your makeup as well, if you are using the same brush for different products.

This PS... BLEND & CLEANSE MAKE UP SPONGE CLEANER is great to use for all your makeup sponges and beauty blenders in no time. This really makes the job easy for Deep cleaning your makeup applicators. I just take this product on wet sponge depending on how much my makeup sponge is dirty and just massage it gently on my palm by squeezing and pressing until all the make up is removed and then wash it under running tap water. Then I repeat the same steps if more cleaning is required. Lukewarm water works best.

Also; I use this same product to Deep clean my makeup brushes. I simply add lukewarm water and mix this cleansing product in a bowl and soak my brushes for few minutes. Then I wash them under running tap water avoiding the metal part of the brushes. I specially Deep clean my face brushes as these are the ones that require more cleansing due to the use of heavy liquid products like foundation, concealers etc. and also these brushes are more prone to germ build up and bacteria as they come in contact with the facial skin a lot.

If you don't have an affordable cleanser like me, or if you don't want to invest on high cost makeup brush cleansing products, these DIY cleansing ideas will not only save your pockets but also are great when compared to high end cleansing products. 
So the very first DIY cleanser is a mixture of Olive oil and Baby shampoo. You can use any regular baby shampoo and olive oil you like. Here I am using Johnson's Baby Shampoo and LIOL Olive Oil from a local drugstore. Add 1 tsp of olive oil and generous amount of baby shampoo in a bowl. Dip the brushes and start cleaning your brushes by rolling in circular motion on your palm or on silicon cleansing mats.Then wash brushes under running tap water. Olive oil breaks down the makeup and also conditions the bristles while baby shampoo cleanse out all the dirt and grime. You can also use Coconut Oil as it works best too.
 Also you can directly use a nourishing soap bar like dove, any bacterial hand wash, face wash or a conditioning shampoo alone to clean you make up brushes. If you already have a Micellar Water that will work as well.

After I wash my brushes, I make sure all the water is squished out, then I wipe them gently and lay them slanting on a napkin and leave to dry over night. This way I really get super clean brushes and it helps to maintain a proper hygiene of my skin and the tools. Hope you all weekly clean your brushes too and if not please follow the methods and make it a beauty ritual.
