Tutorial: How To Clean Your Makeup Brushes at Home

Why purchase those expensive brush/sponge cleansers, 
when you can make your own at home in just a few minutes?
This quick homemade solution works far better at dissolving all of the excess makeup and oil from your makeup brushes than those name brand cleansers. Even if you clean your brushes on a regular basis, you will be surprised at how much dirt and grime will be removed with this simple trick.

What You Need:
Dawn Dish Soap- Original
Distilled White Vinegar
Glass Measuring Cup {2 cup}
Mix together 2/3 cup of white vinegar with 1/2 teaspoon of Dawn dish soap in a glass measuring cup. Fill the rest of the measuring cup with hot water. Place your makeup brushes in the measuring cup and allow them to soak for 5 minutes. Remove the brushes from the solution and rinse with cold water until the water runs clear. Lay your makeup brushes on a towel and allow them to air dry. Once dry, your brushes are like new!
How Often Should I Clean My Brushes?
I would recommend cleaning your brushes at least every other week for optimal performance and to extend the longevity of the brush. 
 FYI: (Makeup sponges) Your makeup will naturally change the color of your sponge, so if it does not return to it's original state don't worry, it's still clean and disinfected. As long as the water runs clear and no makeup runs off the sponge after you have soaked it in the solution, then you are good to go.
