OT: How To Make Your Own Makeup Brush Cleanser

| |

A bit off-topic but since I was browsing around for a tutorial on how to make your own makeup brush cleanser, I decided to share my results! I used EnKore's tutorial (below) and he did a fabulous job explaining what each product does for your brushes. Overall, this did a great job of cleaning my brushes and it can all be made with house hold products!

Make Your Own Makeup Brush Cleanser

1. 1/2 table spoon of dish washing soap
2. 1/4 cup of rubbing alcohol
3. 1/2 table spoon of hair shampoo
4. 1 table spoon of spray leave-on condition (water-like)
5. 1 cup of filtered water

1. Plastic container
2. Something to mix your cleanser (I used a chop stick)
3. Bottle to hold your finished cleanser

Cleanser for Makeup Brushes - The Results!

My shampoo and spray leave-in condition are peachy-orange so this was the result. I didn't follow the measurements exactly; I just estimated and it still worked great nonetheless. However, the rubbing alcohol smell does prevail so don't sniff it.

hey babe thanks for your comments

an easier way to clean your brushes is just by using Johnson & Johnson's baby shampoo!! I use it and it's amazing! Turns my dirty MAC brushes (especially my 187 & 217) back to pure white <3

It's also really cheap, you should try it sometime! :)
