How To: Clean Your Makeup Brushes the Right Way


Be honest, when was the last time you washed your makeup brushes? If it’s been over a month, get to scrubbin’! I’ve heard some horror stories, and if you’re not cleaning your brushes regularly, think of all the dirt, oil, dead skin cells and bacteria you’re swiping onto your skin daily. Yikes! Not sure how to do it right? Take a look below!


  • A shallow bowl
  • Baby shampoo or anti-bacterial soap
  • Cleansing pad or you can use your hand
  • Lukewarm water
  • Small hand towel


Step 1: Pour a cup of lukewarm water into your shallow bowl. Then, squeeze a dime-sized amount of baby shampoo into the palm of your hand / cleansing pad.

Step 2: With your hand / cleansing pad over the bowl, dip the head of the brush into the water and then swirl it into the dollop of shampoo that’s in your hand / cleansing pad.

Step 3: Repeat Step 2 and continue to swirl the brush in the palm of your hand / cleansing pad until the water from the brush runs clear.

Step 4: Once you’ve washed all of your brushes, lay them flat on a towel – not upright in a cup – so that water does not reach the part of the brush where the handle meets the head. This can cause the glue to loosen and your brush head to break off.

And that’s how you can clean your make-up brushes! I really hope you enjoyed. 🙂 Do you clean your make-up brushes regularly? How and with what products do you like to wash them?

Have a nice day❤

Love, Dajana.
