Different ways to clean makeup brushes & tools

The first & probably easiest & quickest way I clean my makeup brushes is just with a bar soap.

Mines just a bar soap I picked up from an organic store at the market but I have read a lot about people using the dove bar soap.

I use this technique in between thorough cleans because it pretty much leaves my brushes spotless and it takes no time at all.

Another way I clean my brushes is by using an Oil Cleanser. I just picked this one up when I was in Singapore but any Oil Cleanser works fine.

I pump a few pumps onto the palm of my hands & then in a circular motion clean my brush.

Then rinse it out with warm water & it should come out looking brand new.

I also like to use the oil cleanser to clean my beautyblender.

I usually soak it in the Oil Cleanser mixed with warm water for a bit & then squeeze it out before & then using more of the oil cleanser to get the rest out.

Another technique which I’ve only just started doing is using dish soap & olive oil. I’ve been using this technique more for my eyeshadow brushes.

Again I mix some warm water with dish soap and a few drops of olive oil

Finally, for my eyelash curler I like to use a cleansing cloth. After I use the cleansing cloth to take off my face makeup I will use a clean part of the cloth & wipe away any product stuck on the curler.
