Brush Cleaning & Storage

January 22, 2015

Today I thought I would share with you how I clean and organize my makeup brush collection.I don’t have a huge collection of brushes, but I have collected a small quality collection that are very useful to me. I like to clean my brushes every few days to keep them in tip-top shape.

I’ve tried different ways of keeping my brushes upright in the glass container. You can use beads, rocks ect, but I personally love how pretty crystal rocks look. These are crystal rocks that I’ve collected on my travels. I have Black Tourmaline and Rose Quartz together. It’s not only functional, but super pretty and feminine. I don’t get too many opportunities to decorate with pink — since our home is gender neural, so this is a fun, feminine touch for my vanity.

Cinema Secrets is my FAVORITE brush cleaner. It smells like vanilla, so when you apply makeup, you can smell a very faint but lovely vanilla scent. It makes applying makeup to yourself or others extra special.

 I put a little bit of the brush cleaner on a clean towel, and start to rub my brushes in it. You only need a little bit.

This cleanser is great for in-between giving your brushes a thorough bath. A traditional brush bath should be consistent, but depends on how often you use your brushes.
