Make Your Own Brush Cleanser!!

Click to enlarge.

A couple months ago on Luuux I showed you how to mix your own foundation shades as well as foundation tips & tricks for your skin type and i promised i would do another post on how to make your own daily spot cleanser for makeup brushes - so here it is! :) This is not a deep cleanser, it will only remove surface dirt and products from brushes.

You Will Need
1 cup distilled water
¼ cup isopropyl alcohol
1 tablespoon baby shampoo

Mixing Ingredients & Using Cleanser
  1. Mix all ingredients into an air-tight container with a lid.
  2. Pour into any size spray bottle - mine is pretty small but yours can be large.
  3. If any is left over, store in the refrigerator.
  4. Now that you have some in your spray bottle, tilt back and forth to gently mix products.
  5. Spray 2-3 squirts onto a clean folded paper towel.
  6. Rub your makeup brush back and forth onto the wet paper towel to spot cleanse your brush.
  7. When finished, shape brushes immediately then store brushes laying down until completely dry.
Thats it, it's so simple! If you need a deep cleanser for your brushes just mix 1 cup water and a couple tablespoons of baby shampoo in a small bowl and swish brushes around until they're clean. Rinse thoroughly and shape, then store lying down until they're completely dry. Or you could try E.L.F. Brush Shampoo, $3 sold at Target and eyeslipsface.com
