How to Clean Your Makeup Brushes

I'm embarrassed to say that my makeup brushes have been stiff since Halloween. Yeah. Avery dressed up as Minnie Mouse and the little brushes that they sent with the makeup just wasn't cutting it for Minnie's whiskers. 


So after pinning a ton of recipes for cleaning your brushes, I finally just did it. And wow! I can't believe how clean and soft they came!



Here is the recipe I used:


  • 1 Glass of Warm Water
  • 1 Tablespoon of Dish Detergent (I used the new Palmolive Fresh Infusions in Lemon Thyme because is smells oh-so-good!)
  • 2 Tablespoons of White Vinegar
Simply dip your brushes and swirl in the mixture until they come out clean on a paper towel. So easy and only took about 10 minutes for all my brushes!

I couldn't believe how much makeup came off!

  2. Ohhh! I love this technique! I always put off cleaning my brushes because it feels like such a process. I have a MAC cleansing solution for them, but even using that feels like a task...the last time I did it I used shampoo, but I know for a fact this vinegar mix would do a much better job.
    Thanks for sharing! I'm gonna try this today! =)

  5. Don't judge me but I've never cleaned my make up brushes. Ever. As in since I got them when I was 15.
