Diy Makeup Brush Cleaner

Today I am sharing my quick & inexpensive homemade makeup brush cleaner recipe. I started making my own brush cleaner a few years ago after being disenchanted by the cost of store bought ones. Personally, I find it difficult to convince myself to pay $14 {going rate for a Sephora brand cleaner} for a bottle of liquid when the homemade stuff works just as well.  The best thing about homemade cleaners is that there are so many variations out there & a lot of the ingredients are things you probably already have lying around in your house!

DIY Makeup Brush Cleaner Recipe 

1 cup of warm water

1 tablespoon liquid dish detergent

1 tablespoon vinegar

Fill a small bowl with the above ingredients. Place brushes bristle side down in the bowl & swoosh around. Remove brushes and rinse under tap water. Reshape the brushes & then place them on an old towel or a couple sheets of paper towel. Allow to dry.

It's recommended that you wash your brushes at least once a month. This will help your brushes last longer and also help you avoid spreading bacteria to your face and causing those nasty breakouts. Is it sad to say that this is probably thee only cleaning schedule I stick to around my house?! Maybe if the laundry threatened to cause breakouts I'd be convinced to stay on top of it.

Hope you all had a great weekend! Are a lot of you off for MLK day? Unfortunately, I was hit with a horrible head cold and spent most of my long weekend cuddled up with my pillow & Neti pot.

Not exactly what I had planned! 

Hope you all have a delightful Monday.
