Tutorial: How To Clean Your Makeup Brushes

What you will need: baby shampoo ($2), a sink, and a washcloth/towel.

1. Run brush under sink to slightly dampen bristles.
2. Squeeze a pea-sized amount of baby shampoo onto your brush. Depending on the size of the brush, the amount of shampoo needed will vary. Remember, less is more. With my largest brush (Bare Minerals 'Kabuki' brush), I use a dime-sized amount of soap.
3. Work shampoo into bristles to create a light foam.
4. Rinse until water running off of bristles is clear.
5. Place brush on washcloth/towel to dry.

Be careful to avoid getting the part of the brush where the handle and bristles meet wet. This can cause the glue to wash away and as a result, the bristles will begin to fall out.
