A Quick and Easy Way to Wash Your Makeup Brushes

I have to admit that for a while after I got into makeup, I hadn’t washed my brushes. It was just something I hadn’t really thought about until I watched Pixiwoos videos. They suggest easy ways to wash makeup brushes and I am going to share how I was mine with you.

You will need:

Your hands

Johnsons Baby Shampoo

Dirty Makeup Brushes

Let’s do this:

Step one: Start off by wetting the brush under the hot water tap and then dispense a small amount of baby shampoo into the palm of your hand.

Step two: Swirl your brush into the baby shampoo and let it lather up, rinse it off and repeat again until the brush has no more dirt coming off it.


Step three: Give your brushes a shake to get rid of the excess moisture and then lay them out on a towel to let them dry. I find they probably need a day which is why I wash mine on a Sunday when I usually don’t wear any makeup. (If you want them to dry a bit quicker you could swirl them around on the towel but this could damage the bristles so I tend not to)


That’s it. Easy, right? If you have any different ways of washing your brushes, let me know in the comments! Hope you enjoyed reading.
