How to clean your make-up brushes!

Hello, hello! So today I am gonna share with you the way I clean my brushes. It is true, I do this once a month, rest of the time I just wipe them with a brush cleanser, but once a month I do this extreme cleaning and works very well.

So you will need : a bunch of dirty brushes, olive oil, dishwasher liquid soap, a plate, paper towels.

Next step is to simply pour on the plate olive oil and dishwasher liquid soap, half-half.

After that just take your brushes and swirl them in the middle of the plate, making sure to swirl the olive oil with the dishwasher liquid soap. The olive oil will protect the hair of your brushes and the soap will clean it and disinfect them.

As you can tell, it removes all the product from the brushes pretty fast and very well. Just keep doing this for all of your brushes, and just lay them on the paper towels, to prepare them for the water. After you finishes with all, just go and wash them with warm water and be careful to keep away the water from the stick, because the water may cause the glue to fail and it will break your brushes.

After you finish, just lay all your brushes on a towel, they will wet the paper if you lay the brushes on paper towels. Leave them over night, or over day to get completely dry, and to make sure you won’t wake up with funky hair, just press it  in your fingers and try to squeeze the tips in an almond shape, so they dry nice.

After a whole night you should have clean brushes and ready to serve your make-up for the day!
