Washing Make-up Brushes

Before I took this picture of my makeup organization system, I decided to give my make-up brushes a wash.

I vaguely remember a friend telling me I needed to do that every now and then, so I decided to do a little research.

I found this very helpful little article, and in the course of reading discovered that I should be washing my makeup brushes once a week!

Oh, my stars and garters!  I think I’ve maybe washed them once…ever!!

Now I’m just grossed out…

But, now that I know, I’ll get right on that…

If you don’t want to whip over to the article I linked to, here it is in a nutshell:

1.  Run your brush under lukewarm water to rinse it out a bit.

2.  Pour a drop of gentle shampoo (or baby shampoo) into a bowl and fill with lukewarm water.  Swirl the brush in it.

3.  Keep rinsing until the water is clear.

4.  Dry flat on a towel.
