If you’re on-the-go or just have no time to wash your brushes everyday, this is the perfect methods for you. Please keep in mind that spot cleaning only removes the stain and sterilize the top or most part of your brushes, you still need to wash it once a week (or more, if you use it daily).
- Paper towel
- Empty spray bottle
- Washcloth / towel
- Dirty brush(s)
- Brush cleanser
Step 1: Transfer some of the liquid into a spray bottle.
Step 2: Spray your dirty brush, mainly the top.
Step 3: Wipe it on the wash cloth until the dirt comes off.
Step 4: Make sure to do it a couple of times if you’re cleaning your foundation brush.
Method #2 (I’d say this is the easiest way, but you’ll waste lots of paper towel):
Step 1: Fold the paper towel into four and pour the cleanser
Step 2: Just like the first method, wipe the bristles until the dirt comes off.
Step 3: Unfold the paper towel to reveal a clean spot and wipe your brush one more time. Do it over and over again until it’s clean or at least good enough to use.
– The cleanser i was using is from Mac (I bought it for $15 last year, i don’t know how much it is now)
– The brush is the Coastal Scents flat kabuki brush
– For a cheaper alternative, i believe ELF carry a brush cleanser/shampoo
Remember, cleaning your brush is very important. Imagine using the same brush over and over again with the same bacteria. Dirty brush might cause a break out or a rash on your face (if your face is sensitive).
Don’t forget to wash your brush at least once a week!
