Clean Your Makeup Brushes Like a Pro

how to deep clean your makeup brushes and prevent breakouts

Oh goodness, sometimes nothing is worse than waking up with a fresh breakout or ending your day with two new “friends” on your cheek (UGH). While blemishes on the skin can be caused by a number of issues, one easy fix that is often forgotten is simply deep cleaning your makeup brushes on a regular basis. I definitely don’t mind being the first to admit that I don’t deep clean mine nearly as often as I should, so I totally understand a crazy schedule getting in the way of consistency here. Thankfully though, these 3 steps take literally less than five minutes, and if completed in the afternoon (aka after work, school, gym, etc.) your brushes will be fresh, dry, and ready-to-go by the next morning. 

For super clean brushes, I always recommend using the Daily Clarifying Shampoo by Suave, because it’s formulated in such a way that it’s gentle enough for contact with skin yet powerful enough for cleansing oily hair; essentially the perfect combo for delicate brushes covered in makeup and other unmentionable gunk. Ideally, these steps should be completed once a week, but if all else fails, at least try to use a daily cleanse spray. The one I like to use by bareMinerals is linked here

To deep clean your makeup brushes, I recommend:

Daily Clarifying Suave Shampoo

 Makeup Cleaner Silicon Finger-Glove

Tower Tree Standing Dryer

Let’s get clean!

how to really deep clean your makeup brushes

Step 1: Squirt the Daily Clarifying Suave Shampoo directly onto the silicon finger glove. Turn on the faucet & with the brush angled downwards, begin gently scrubbing the bristles against the glove’s ridges. For smaller brushes, focus the bristles more on the compact round ridges than the larger linear ones.

Step 2: Add more shampoo if needed & continue gently scrubbing until run-off water is clear. Squeeze out excess water from bristles and place brush into the tower tree holder to dry. 

 

 

Step 3: Repeat steps 1-2 for remaining brushes & allow  at least 2 hours for the brushes to dry (as mentioned earlier, it’s usually best to clean your brushes in the evening so they have enough time to fully dry out before you need them again the next day)

Your Next Formal Event Must-Have

 

Today’s post is extra fun and I’m so pumped to share with y’all this amazing company, Borrowed By Design – AKA your next number 1 go-to for formal events. There are so many reasons I love this company and what they stand for: women supporting women (YES!), and their business concept is genius too! Shoppers can go to the Borrowed By Design website and choose to either purchase or rent a dress for any type of event imaginable. Whether you have prom coming up, an engagement photo session, a fun date, or even a midsummer themed photoshoot (like we did here 🙂 ), there are so many options available that are perfect for any budget.

Or, if you have the opposite problem and want to downsize, there are options for that too! How many times have you stood in your closet unable to giveaway or sell a formal dress that you know is just taking up space but you’re too attached to it to let it go? If you’re anything like me, then it’s definitely been more than once, or even three times, but who’s counting? How cool would it be if you could rent out that dress to other women? REALLY COOL! The gown featured in this post is a rental that Borrowed By Design provided for the shoot, and now that the shoot is over, it’s on the way back to its owner – instead of sitting in my closet never to be worn again.

As you can tell, I’m already obsessed and am so excited to provide y’all with a code to get 25% off your first purchase or rental: MALIALYNNW. Y’all there are dresses listed for $11 – that means only a little more than 8 bucks for a new date night dress! AND (yes caps are necessary here hehe) Borrowed By Design is also hosting a special $500 shopping sweepstakes giveaway – so get your entry in asap before the sweepstakes ends on August 15!
