It is a task that must be done even though it's mundane and messy. Girls have all the fun of the fair don't they? Cleaning makeup brushes is that one thing I always try and put off but once done it's sooo satisfying!!
Here is a snap of the mucky water post wash:
But the uber clean brushes are always a win:
I use my cleanser to clean my brushes; Purity by Philosophy. I put a small amount in the palm of my hand then swirl the brush head into it; rinse and repeat until the water coming out of the brush is clear.
I don't use fancy pants brush cleaning techniques; I have decent makeup brushes which include Bare Minerals, Smashbox, Bobbi Brown and M.A.C so in my opinion the quality of the brush allows to keep cleaning simple :)
How do you clean your makeup brushes? Do you have any special tips for cleaning them?
