How to clean your make up brushes and Anything +Everything Blog Hop #4

Monday, April 8, 2013

If you're like me, you're really bad about cleaning your make up brushes. I've been told you should clean them once a week. I, on the other hand am lucky if I do it once a month. I recently came across a new tip on how to clean your brushes and it makes the process much easier! All you will need is a little olive oil and a little dish soap (dawn works best). I know you might be thinking "how does oil, clean make up?" Well... one of the principals of chemistry is that "like dissolves like." The best way to clean oil, is with oil... weird right?!?  And since most make up is made with oil (especially foundation) its only natural to use a little olive oil to clean it. I have to admit, I was a little skeptical when I started washing my brushes, but this combination worked like a charm! I have never gotten my brushes cleaner with only one rinse! I usually use shampoo and I have to soap up my brushes, rinse, and repeat multiple times... not with the oil! All my brushes rinsed out clean the first time!
