It is such a mundane task after all, and one I honestly always dread having to do! But it really is so important to clean your brushes and remove the makeup, dirt, bacteria and oils that would have accumulated in the brush hairs. Why? Well would you really want to be spreading that on your face...? It could be contributing to your clogged pores and breakouts. Having clean brushes will also help your makeup application look a lot fresher. So here is our recipe for cleaning your makeup brushes the natural way.
You will need:
Get yourself a little bowl, and pour in around 2 tablespoons of Olive Oil and 1 tablespoon of witch hazel. Dip the brushes into the mixture and start working it into the brush hairs. The Olive Oil will help to condition the brush hairs and leave them feeling really soft. Whilst the witch hazel will help dissolve stubborn liquid and cream makeup on the brush hairs.
Next wet your brushes under the tap, then pour a little Castille Soup into the palm of your hand, with a couple of drops of tea tree oil. Swirl your brush around in the palm of your hand and work the mixture into the brush hairs.
Rinse your brushes thoroughly, dry them with a clean towel to remove excess water. Then leave them to dry overnight lying flat.
