How to Clean your Makeup Brushes:
1. Find a mild baby wash – I prefer JOHNSON’S Baby Wash
2. Take your brushes and wet them thoroughly
3. Take the baby wash and later the bristles with the soap
4. Take your time to really work the soap in
5. Start rinsing the water out of the brushes
6. Once all the soap has been rinsed out, have them dry standing up *you don’t want the water to rust any of the handle.

Make sure you find the time to do this once a month! It will be good for your brushes and your skin! Watch you skin really clear up quickly. You honestly don’t realize just what kind of dirt you’re putting back on your face. This is something to absolutely keep in mind as you buy more and more makeup.
