Tip for Cleaning Your Makeup Brushes

Hi Beauties,

Hope you had a fabulous first weekend of 2014!

Every Sunday, I set aside some time to deep-clean my makeup brushes. I just thought to share this tip with you all that has helped my brushes last as long as they have (some of my brushes are over 1o years old!)

After rinsing your brushes clean and squeezing out any remaining water, roll up one side of a terry-cloth towel to help “lift” your brush handles at an angle. Lay them with the brush ends facing down, like so. IMG_4531

This will prevent the water from seeping into the ferrule (the metal handle) of the brush, where it will weaken the glue that holds everything together. Small brushes will dry within a couple of hours, but I would leave any big fluffy brushes out to dry overnight.

If you haven’t seen my video on how to properly clean your makeup brushes, watch below.
