Video QuickTip #47 – January 27, 2010

No pretty girl should have dirty makeup brushes!

Cleaning your brushes is so important to keep bacteria and germs at bay. Learn the fastest and most thorough method to keep your brushes clean and in shape from a guy who knows - Brett Freedman!

Okay gals - for a proper brush cleansing (which you should do about once a week), you need the following tools:
  • towel
  • sink and counter space
  • Dr. Bronner's Magic Pure Castile Liquid Soap - available at health food stores and some Target locations
Clean your sink so you have a fresh and clean surface to work with.

Squeeze the Dr. Bronner in a zig zag motion across the sink. Take your brushes one by one to a section of soap (each brush gets its own section) and swirl around, pumping up and down.

As you finish sudsing each brush, lay it out on the counter to soak in and absorb the soap for a few minutes.

Then take each brush, rinse it under warm water, and swirl and pump it up and down until all the pigment and bubbles disappear. This will clean your sink, too!

While the brushes are still wet, mold them back into their original shape and lay out to dry on a towel with the bristles hanging over the edge of the sink. This allows for dripping and more airflow for a faster dry!

And there you have it - the insider's method for optimal brush cleaning!
