Hello my lovelies,
Let's talk about some of the dirtier aspects of beauty, shall we? No, not that kind of dirty...literal dirt. My brushes are usually a fetching mix of grubby orange and pink as I like to buff all my make-up in and use three brushes for the same job! Not nice!
I tend to clean my brushes at least once a week, usually more! In ye olde days (ie, uni) I would use a mild baby shampoo to clean them but recently I have discovered a far more effective product which in my opinion works wonders.
Obviously mild shampoo is fine and works perfectly well, but I'm a bit OCD and like my brushes to look like new once they've been cleaned, and I always found with baby shampoo that they looked a bit orange once the cleansing has been completed. Not anymore!
My basic method is this:
Squeeze a small amount of Bioderma into a dish or a small cup, then swirl your brush in it, pushing down gently so the bristles really absorb the product. Then rinse under warm water. If the make up still lingers, simply repeat! I sometimes go on to wash them with a mild soap afterwards just because I like my brushes to smell nice but obviously this is down to personal preference!
I like this method as it is quick and super effective, also it is gentle enough to not harm the bristles - I've had my Real Techniques brushes for a year and a half now and they still look like new once washed, no bristle loss at all!
How do you wash your brushes? What do you think of using a micellar water to do so?
Love Dani xoxo
