DIY Daily Cleaner for Makeup Brushes

Make up brushes daily clean

Cleaning your makeup brushes is really important.  They get full or bacteria if they aren’t cleaned regulalry.  If you are like me, you might wear makeup everyday and use your brushes often.  A while back I showed you how to do a weekly deep clean on your brushes.  That method is great to use about once a week, depending on the frequency of your brush use.  But what about a daily clean?

I recently started applying a gel eyeliner with a brush instead of using liquid or pencils.  I like the look a lot better and it stays on much longer for me using this method.  Because I am using a brush, I have to clean it after each use or it will be hard as a rock the next time I use it. I needed a daily cleaner.

I got this recipe from the Get Clean Girls blog.  It was changed a bit because I didn’t have all the ingredients, but it is basically the same easy idea.

I used distilled water, isopropyl alcohol, witch hazel, olive oil and rose water.  Fill a spray bottle  halfway with the alcohol, half of the remaining space (1/4 of bottle) with the distilled water and the remaining amount of the bottle with the witch hazel.  Save room for just a little olive oil and rose water.

The rose water was added because it is a natural fragrance, which cancels the smell of the witch hazel and can be known to moisturize.  You can also use lavender oil and/or tea tree oil.  Shake it up before each use. Use a clean washcloth to clean brushes after each use and allow them to dry.
