So most bloggers I know use the MAC Brush Cleanser but I don't want to be spending ridiculous amounts of money, therefore I use baby shampoo. I buy Johnston's Baby Shampoo for £1.10 from Boots which I think its a bargain! Its quick, easy and simple to use if you just following these instructions.
You will need:
- A sink (hopefully everyone has one!)
- Gentle clarifying baby shampoo (I recommend Johnston's)
- A lint free cloth
- A piece of kitchen tissue (if you have a make-up stand like mine, then use that)
Firstly you will need to dampen the brush with lukewarm water and put a pea size of the baby shampoo in the palm of your hand like the picture below.
Then taking one brush at a time, gently rub them in the baby shampoo in a swirling motion on the palm of your hand. You may have to occasionally add a little bit of water to lather up the product to ensure the brush to be thoroughly saturated.
Squeeze out the excess product and then dry using your cloth/towel/tissue (I shouldn't use my hands) and leave in your make-up stand or on a piece of kitchen tissue in the sun to dry. One tip would to be while they are damp you can re-shape them into the correct shape for the brush.
And volia you are done, it is so easy to do! I usually do them on a Saturday morning to leave on my window ledge in the sun all day as you can check out them and re-shape them when damp too (on the weekday I am at school)
I hope this post helped! Hopefully you are going out right now to buy some baby shampoo to clean your brushes as it is something which can be easily neglected but brushes are expensive to take care of them!
