How I Clean My Makeup Brushes♥

No matter what, I hate washing makeup brushes, as do many other people. It's just so time consuming and quite frankly, I find it boring. The only amusing part is when you wash a really, really dirty brush and all the makeup runs out, apart from when you see all the wasted foundation that ended up in your brush rather than on your face. I've seen people using fancy gadgets to wash their brushes, but of course they come with a pretty big price tag. I previously used a flannel, however, once day on a whim in Primark (stalking the beauty section because it's what I do best), I came across this absolute gem - a facial pad.

Yes, a facial pad. Who would have thought it's the best thing since sliced bread? As soon as I saw it, I immediately thought of my makeup brushes - the perfect item for washing them. I thought perhaps the bristles would be ideal for ensuring that every last drop of makeup is removed. It was an absolute bargain as well, at only £1.50. I was afraid in case it would ruin my brushes, however, it hasn't caused them any damage at all because it's made of thin plastic.

The surface area of the pad is large enough for "fluffier" brushes, including my foundation brush, powder brush and kabuki brush. Personally, I wash my brushes with soap (some people prefer shampoo) and I find the bubbles lather up with no problem at all. Must I admit, it is rather satisfying after you've washed your makeup brushes as they are clean, but the process itself is boring. I do find that this little pad helps make things a tad faster though!

Facial pads are brilliant for two reasons; a) for the reason they're designed for (your face, duhh!) and b) washing your makeup brushes. If you don't own one, go get one - they are incredible, and ever so affordable! At the end of the day, who doesn't love a product which has multiple uses?

How do you wash your makeup brushes?
