Hope you're all having fab weekends! Something a bit different today...A plea for some advice.
So here's the thing, cleaning brushes...I use mineral make-up so my brushes get used everyday, A LOT. I am totally rubbish at cleaning them regularly, I would dearly love to clean them once a week like I read some of you all do, but I just run out of time or forget!
And I also don't even know if I am cleaning them right, so please, please comment with your tips, and words of wisdom on how you clean your make-up brushes as I would love to hear!
Here's what I do...
Firstly I always use Johnson's baby shampoo, no idea why really. Think I read it somewhere, figure it's for babies so must be gentle and I like the smell.

Next I run my brushes under lukewarm water and then add the shampoo foaming it up. I tilt the brush down so the water runs away from the handle and not against the bristles.
I will continue running the brush under the water until the water runs clean and the shampoo has thoroughly washed away.
I then leave them to dry naturally.
And voila, I have clean brushes!
My brushes are all from bareMinerals and were all quite expensive, they seem to respond well to being cleaned like this so that is why I have stuck with it.
I would love to hear what you do with your brushes. How do you clean them, and how often do you clean them? I know I definitely need to start cleaning mine more often!
Keep your make-up brushes beautiful!
