Clean them everyday


I have to hold my hands up and admit I am terrible at shampooing my make-up brushes, I always think, I'll wash them at the weekend and then conveniently forget..! My brushes aren't heavily used infact my blusher brush is the only brush that is used daily. Foundation, bronzer and eyeshadow are more likely to be once a week. I decided to try a daily brush cleaner and finally ordered one before Christmas and have been using it for a few weeks now.

I chose between the Bare Minerals daily brush cleaner 133mls £6.99 and the E.L.F version 250mls £3.50. For nearly twice as much and half the price I chose the E.L.F cleaner.

This product is a god send for someone like me - two sprays on the brush and a wipe over clean tissue or a cotton pad and you can see the colour coming off, I then leave in to dry. It even worked on my angled brush I had put gel liner on.

It does have a reasonably strong smell, quite medicated which I personally like and the brush really does feel clean the next morning when I go to use it.

You can buy the spray cleaner here and for £3.50 its well worth a try. http://www.eyeslipsface.co.uk/product~prodID~168.htm


  1. I am the same, I rarely get around to cleaning them! Great idea though, even the bottle looks pretty stylish! I will be purchasing :) xx

  2. Ahh fab idea! I am the WORST for not cleaning my brushes, it's awful! But this looks quite quick & easy! Thanks :)

    Lovely blog btw x

  3. I force myself to do mine at the weekend but a daily one is a good idea too. I like the look of the elf one but I'd probably go for the Bare Minerals one to 'match' my brushes!

  4. i usually wash my brushes with gentle soap. usually once a week.
    haven't heard of this before. thanks for sharing.
    hope you're having a great week

  5. I'm terrible about cleaning my brushes, but this e.l.f. cleanser makes it sound so easy! I'm definitely going to give it a go :)

  6. I'm terrible about cleaning my brushes too! I use the BareMinerals make up so I definitely need to invest in some cleaner...hehehe.
