HOW TO: Deep Clean, Disinfect & Condition Your Makeup Brushes

Everything you want to know is right here…

Hi loviesss. I have been under the weather the past couple of days and even struggled to film this but wanted to get something up. I’ve been washing makeup brushes for yearssssss and this is by far my go to method. It’s easy, inexpensive & effective. I use to use baby shampoo but realized that it wasn’t disinfecting them so the antibacterial soap is the way to go. Also the Sigma Brush Washing Glove is probably the most amazing thing I’ve ever used to wash my brushes. This isn’t sponsored just had to mention it because it’s honestly amazing but remember if you don’t wanna splurge on it go on Ebay or Amazon & search for one, it cut my rinsing time down by almost more than half. It usually takes me 1 to 2 hours depending on how many brushes I’m washing! Eeeeeek. I will try to get another video up tomorrow and hope you enjoy this one.

Dawn Antibacterial Soap (*cleans & disinfects)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (*conditions – any kind will do)

Everytime I wash my brushes the larger face brushes always have soap suds left in them and I absolutely cannot get them out no matter how long I wash them. Any tips?

Zenub Khokhar says:

she’s copying Michelle Phan!

jadywady jadey wady says:

thank you!!!

Zeel Ibarra says:

great tip, but you wasted too much water:c

Lexie Schoonover says:

obviously it’s totally fine if she uses the same cleaning technique as Michelle Phan, my only issue with this is that the video itself from start to finish is step by step almost exactly the same as hers. Even the dialogue is the same. Like girl just give a quick shout out or something
