I’ve tried many methods to clean my dirty makeup brushes. However, I feel I have found a good method which leaves my brushes spotless and still soft.
I purchased a Brushegg which I got off Amazon. I’ve found this to be most effective in getting off dirt from the brushes.
You should have your brushes easily in reach. Run the tap so it is lukewarm, I don’t really trust using hot water. You can place your thumb or a few fingers in the Brushegg, making it easy to hold.
You can use whatever soap you have, I would however steer clear of washing up liquid as it can be too harsh for the brushes. I have a hand soap here and I’ve just put some on the Brushegg ready to be used.
Using the Brushegg, move the brush in circular motions. It will bring up all the dirt, even from the bottom of the brush! Keep doing this motion until the brush has returned to its original colour and the soap is clear.
As you can see, the brushes are now clear of dirt and makeup remains. I think the Brushegg is well worth the purchase!
Let me know what methods you use to clean your makeup brushes.
