Step-By-Step Sunday: Cleaning Make-Up Brushes

Happy Sunday Betties!
Hope you all are enjoying your long weekend. Each Sunday we will feature step-by-step instructions on things we have found helpful.

Hopefully, you all read the skin care post. We couldn’t emphasize enough how important taking care of our skin is. After all, being a Betty is 70% how we take care of ourselves. You can use the greatest, most expensive, skin care regime but if your make-up brushes aren’t clean…. It kind of defeats the purpose. We have tried numerous ways to get my brushes almost brand new again. This is by far the BEST way.


First, you will need these items.
*Hand soap
*Olive oil
*A plate
*Paper Towels
*Your dirty, dirty, brushes….


Mix equal parts of hand soap and olive oil. We started out with a Teaspoon, but you will definitely be adding more as you go.


Take a dirty brush and swirl it into the mixture for about 30 seconds. You will notice almost immediately all the buildup of makeup (like so)


Take your brush and run it under water until all of the soap bubbles are gone. You can always place the brush back into the soap and olive oil to make sure all the residue is gone and repeat the water step.


Shape your brushes and lay on paper towel to dry. Wah-la!

This is what our brow and eye shadow brushes looked like. Brace yourself – it’s not pretty…..


Can you believe it?! Either we wear too much makeup or every cleaning process we used before DIDNT WORK!

Hope all our Betties found this useful. Have a great Labor Day!
