When I decided to talk about this subject, I knew many would then cringe, knowing it had been a while since the makeup brushes had been cleaned. It is okay, but then again it’s not the best idea. The brushes need to stay fresh to keep your skin, eyes healthy.
One of the things I learned being an esthetician is that ladies love makeup. It makes me listen to them closely, I get some good makeup tips from my beautiful clients. Myself, I have a small arsenal of makeup just to get by. I love my mascara and lipsticks, I can say that much for sure.
As clients come in for facials and waxing, we talk about these things. For those who have been having skin issues, this is something I like to address. This was published on a DoTerra blog a while back and I love this. Now if you do not want to use the coconut oil, you can use a witch hazel.
Add Fractionated Coconut Oil and essential oils into a small bowl.
Swirl your makeup brush in the Fractionated Coconut Oil for 30 seconds, or until you see the makeup stored in your brush start to come out.
Rub in a circular motion on the palm of hand to help get the makeup out.
Rinse the brush under warm water. Gently squeeze brush bristles until clean, and the water runs clear.
Note: Make sure to point the bristles down when running under water. Direct water contact may loosen the glue where the bristles are attach and shorten the life of your brushes.
Let your newly cleaned makeup brushes dry on a towel for four hours, or until dry. Repeat once a month, or as needed.
