Here's your long overdue reminder: It's time to clean your makeup brushes! If you've been following Ellevate from the beginning, you've learned why (bacteria buildup & bad skin are just a few reasons) you need to clean your brushes at least once a month (and twice for brushes used around your eyes).
It's really important to make this part of your monthly makeup routine. Not only will it help your application skills by ridding your brushes of cakey/oily residue, but it will save you from infections and skin irritations all because you failed to take 5 minutes to clean something you use everyday! Makes sense, right?
You might think it sounds like a pain but we'll prove you wrong — all you need is coconut oil and water. Here's how: First, liquefy the coconut oil and dip your brushes. Then, brush them back and forth on a paper towel to remove old makeup and repeat until clean. Give the brushes a quick rinse and set them flat on a towel or paper towel to dry. We suggest doing this at night, so your brushes will be soft, clean and ready to use by morning.
