Problem: Dirty Make-up Brushes

Wednesday, December 09, 2009

Problem:  Dirty make-up brushes.  Solution:  A simpler solution would be to mix 1/4 cup alcohol with a 1/2 8ox bottle of seltzer water.  Quickly dip the brushes in solution for no longer than 15 seconds.  The seltzer water helps keep the natural oils on the brush while the alcohol helps kill the bacterial on the brush.  Clean off with a clean dry towel until brush runs clean with no trace of color.  Repeat one last time to refresh brush prior to make-up application the next day.

That's a good inexpensive tip. I also saw a video on youtube with olive oil and dish washing soap. I'm going to try this one too as the other one worked well as well.
