DIY Makeup Brush Cleaner

Hey everyone!

I’ve been having quite a bit of random little breakouts on my face lately, and never having had acne before I imagined it might have something to do with my uncleaned makeup brushes – so I stopped using them in hopes I would get some makeup brush cleaner soon. After some Pintrest snooping, I found a few tricks and decided to give one a go. The results were amazing! This is a super easy, inexpensive, at home way to get all of the old makeup completely out. I swear – your brushes will be the same color as when they were bought new.

Step 1: Get a bowl or clear cup (clear, so you can see the results :P)

Step 2: Get some olive oil and dish soap

Here’s what I used…

Step 3: 1 tsp. olive oil – 1 tsp. dish soap. – 3-4 tbsp. cool water


Step 4: Dab brush into the mix until it becomes a lather, and you feel the makeup from the brush is residing in the mix


Step 5: Rinse the brush under cool water…

Before & After...

Step 6: Squeeze off excess water and rest to dry on paper towel

Amazing, right!?

Hope this helps 🙂
