For starters, you should make it your beauty resolution to clean your makeup brushes once a week. Your kikay kit is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and germs—and you don't want those to reach your *~~*flawless*~~* face, right? The last thing you want is to wake up, bright and early on a Monday morning, with a giant Z-I-T! Eeek!
Our suggestion? Make it a habit to clean your brushes every Sunday night—before the busy work week ahead—with these simple cleaning solutions:
1. Baby shampoo mix
Mix baby shampoo and water in two separate containers. Swirl your brush in the first one, then again in the second, for about 5-10 seconds. Rinse, squeeze excess water, reshape the bristles (so they don't get buhaghag), and then leave to air dry.
2. Hot water + vinegar
Add two tablespoons of vinegar to a cup of hot water, and stir the solution. Soak your brushes for 5-10 seconds, squeeze excess water, reshape the bristles, and then leave to dry on a kitchen towel.
