Cleaning your makeup brushes every month can be both difficult to remember, and a daunting task.  That’s why we swear by this simple routine to both store our makeup brushes and keep them clean.

A cute decorative cup can serve to both store your brushes, and soak them.  Just add warm water and a dollop of shampoo.

Swirl the dirty brushes around in the warm water and allow them to soak for awhile.

Rinse brushes under warm water until the water runs clear.

Lay flat until mostly dry.

Place back in the cup until it’s time to clean them again next month!

    I normally wash them one by one with baby shampoo and running water but DUH, this is so easy! No more of that!!!

    I did this with my bare minerals brushes, just washed them with shampoo and the bristles fell out. Not sure what I did wrong, but now I clean them with a cleaning product. I should try baby shampoo. that might work better. Great tip.
