Re: Brush cleanser recipe!!!

Hi,

Great recipe. What's the turnaound time for drying? When I'm working, I need something quick.

Re: Brush cleanser recipe!!!

This to me is more for a weekly cleaning of brushes, not to be used for everyday, quick cleaning while applying to clients. But I'm not a MA, so this works perfectly in my case.

yeah this is deff not to be used if you need your brushes right away, it will take a little longer than the mac brush cleanser to dry.

Re: Brush cleanser recipe!!!

Yeah mac brush cleaner works great for a quick clean. I guess if you make this recipe you can use it for when you wash all your brushes and use mac cleaner for a quick clean. It will make the MAC cleaner last longer.

Do you think I could replace the 91% alcohol with Surgical Spirit?

Re: Brush cleanser recipe!!!

Just a little amount of dishwashing soap does the trick!

what you will need:

bottled water- 1 cup
91% alcohol- 1/4 cup
dishwashing soap- 1/2 tsp.
baby shampoo-1/2 tsp.
leave in conditioner (like infusium)- 1 tsp.

mix it all slowly so it wont suds up, then pour into empty container or empty mac brush cleanser bottle, tell me what you all think once you use it. so far its working great for me!!!
Was it from Enkore Makeup...with that guy Koren? He's pretty good.

Re: Brush cleanser recipe!!!

I use tap water with mine and it works just fine, but I'm sure bottled would be better in the long run cause then you don't have to deal with hard water wear and tear on your brushes. Yes, you do have to rinse afterwards, but you will not believe how easy they are to rinse and how clean they get.

After you clean the brushes with these, do you rinse them with water afterwards?

Add a couple of drops of scented oil. That (I think) will take away that alcohol smell.

Yup, it's Enkore's recipe..

Enkore also has one that cleans false lashes.. Check out his vids at U Tube.

Does this Enkore have a My Space account?

Re: Brush cleanser recipe!!!

A little note... Gerber makes a baby shampoo/baby wash that smells like lavender. It makes your brushes smell sweet =)
