How to: Clean Your Makeup Brushes

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! It's been so long since I've posted here (5 or so years?) and I usually just lurk but I'm so excited to post this quickie today. I HATE washing my makeup brushes. Absolutely HATE it. I typically do the EVOO + baby shampoo or Dawn dish soap method. I'm involved in a few beauty groups on Facebook and saw someone that had used Zote laundry soap to wash their brushes and they absolutely raved about it. What caught my attention is how quick she said she got all her brushes washed. So I decided I would try it and needless to say, this stuff is AWESOME. Bristles that I haven't seen white since they came out of their package were looking brand new again.

 

All I did was wet the bristles, swirl the brush on the bar, and rinse. It breaks up the makeup so quickly and easily - I was amazed! Once I washed all my brushes with Zote, I put some Dawn Pure Essentials in a small cup, dipped them in, and did one more quick rinse to get any build-up that may have been left behind. A little goes a long way with this stuff, I barely made a dent in the bar for 52 brushes so I'll have this bar for a long time!

 

Did I mention the best part? This only costs $.97. Less than a whole dollar for a huge bar. There are pink, white, and blue variations of the bar but the only difference is the dye added which will not affect the bristles.

 

Zote was tough enough to cut through the makeup but gently enough to keep my brushes intact. I saw NO bristle fallout whatsoever - which was my biggest concern.

 

I apologize for how jumbled this is - I just wanted to get it up quickly :)

 

Will you try this? What is your current method for washing your brushes? I'm always looking for new ways. :)

I've not heard of that brand of soap. I wonder if it's similar to Fels Naptha which is also around .97 at Walmart.

 

I use hotel facial soap bars. I hate bar soap, but it's great for cleaning makeup brushes and it's free. I travel a few times a year for work and always take a couple of bars home with me.

These are great tips!  I was wondering if the Parian Spirit in the jar method is safe for all brushes, cheapo drugstore brushes, cosmetic store brand "deluxe" brushes, and higher end super-soft brushes alike?

Yup, all brushes. I've been using Parian Spirit since 1995.

I have to say, I am pretty excited right now. I finally, finally ran out of my MAC brush cleaner so I bought the Parian Spirit jar + cleanser + spray bottle yesterday. Ha ha, it's ridiculous how excited I am to try this method to clean my brushes! :w00t:

You should buy good brushes. The initial investment is worth it because they will last, and clean up much better. You won't have the hairs falling out after you clean them. When you do clean them, use a very mild shampoo, and a VERY small amount; run the water over the brush with the brush hairs pointed downward; don't run the water thru the brush. So easy to clean them!

Normally, I take a plate and put a good amount of some dishwashing soap and extra virgin olive oil. I then take each of my brushes and swirl it around on the plate, then rinse them in the sink using water from the tap. After that I towel off most of the moisture and let them air dry horizontally, as I have heard drying your brushes wet with the bristles upwards causes some of the glue or adhesive to become less effective. Hope this helps! xoxo

The best way to clean makeup brushes at home is t Place a teaspoon of shampoo in a cup with 1/4 cup of warm water, and mixed it properly and later massage the down part of the brush again put it in the warm water at last Use a clean dish towel or face towel to gently remove some of the moisture.
