It can be GROSS, but if you are curious how GROSS it's gonna be then please keep reading *evil grin*
I haven't washed my brushes for like er... almost one month already *i know i know....*
Usually i just washed my brushes and my sponge with drinking water (In Indonesia unless you install a water purifyer, it's impossible to drink tap water) and mixed it with hot water in 1 : 3 (1 hot and 3 drinking water,so you get a nice warm water) then i add baby shampoo. Yes, just that nothing else.
But i got this new method thanks to my FD friends (alphabetababy, nucky, and sheLLey for the tips) also a brush cleanser from make up tool shop i got a new routine to clean my brushes and sponge.
|what you're gonna need
Ok i know, you must think what the hell that panty liners doing there? Keep reading :D
|first i tested the water with my lip brush. i wiped it already before dipping it in to the water with baby wipes wet tissue to clean it.
|i washed the brushes that i apply cream or liquid stuff first
|my slanted gel eyeliner brushes - can you see the water turns black?
|the water is kinda oily now, after i clean my foundie brush, my suggestion is clean your small brushes first because it will makes the water less oily when rather than when you clean your foundie brush first.
|this is the final look of the water after i clean of all the brushes above (i didn't take pictures of me cleaning the brushes one by one, you guys probably can figure it out your own)
|TADA... this is the purpose of the panty liner, look how clean the brushes now (the foundie brushes already look a bit brown when i bought it)
BUT, if you don't wanna use panty liners you can change it to towel and paper towel.
|for the small brushes i put them in tissue
|and then roll them up (thanks nucky for the tips)
|this is how the final look how i drying it, i stick them to the brush stand (even drinking mug will do, whatever you prefer)
|the second times of washing ( I AM NOT USING THE SAME WATER WHILE CLEANING MY BRUSHES)
|if you think i'm done, WRONG (final rinse, until the water is really white and didn't have anymore stain them i'm good) -see below for explanation
|this is how i fold it so the whole brushes were covered and dried faster
|i separated the sponge
|final drying process.. let's wait ^^
