Washing Makeup Brushes

We all know that washing our makeup brushes can be a boring dull task, but it's important to do none the less. Unwashed brushes harbor bacteria, dead skin cells, and oxidized product among many other nasties.

So with that being said I usually clean my brushes with the following steps and tools/ingredients.

Olive Oil
Mild soap (I use either a mild dish soap or Dr. Bronners Castile Liquid Soap)

Small plate or the saucer
Sink (Duh :p)

Step one: Pour a small amount about the size of a quarter onto the plate. Next to that add some "soap" whichever you chose, about a small palm full size should do. 
Step two: Dip your brush lightly into the oil and then dip into the "soap". Swirl it on a clean side of the plate to work in the oil and "soap" until it starts to lather and release the buildup. 
Step three: Rub it into the palm of your hand and squeeze very gently in between your thumb and index finger to further remove buildup of products. 
Step four: Run under lukewarm water to rinse. Rinse until water runs clear. You can do this by swirling the brush in your palm. With this step be extra careful not to soak the entire brush or get too much water near the metal part (the ferrule) as it can become loose and you will lose bristles or the whole thing could fall off :( 
Step five: Lay your brushes on a flat surface on top of a towel to dry. They sell many gadgets and gizmo's to hang your brushes face down which is best, but if your like me then who has time to go out and buy that?! LOL. I have always laid them this way to dry and have never had any problems. 
Step six: After the brushes are dry fluff them back to the normal state and Enjoy :)

Do you guys use anything different to clean your brushes? Comment below and share it with us! As always love, hugs, and kisses.
