As we get ready to say good bye to the dog days of summer now is the perfect time to spruce up those makeup brushes and freshen up those brushes with a good deep cleaning and tidy up your makeup bag.

Go through your beauty products, toss out any thing old and expired and give a good deep clean to your tools!!!

This month we have some tips for you on how to care for those tools and maximize that investment in quality tools and keep them in pristine condition.

There are lots of makeup brush cleansers on the market that help to get the job done, but you can also take good care of your tools using household items.

First up bar soap. Massaging your dirty blush or foundation brushes against a sturdy bar of soap will work the cleanser deep into the bristles. Rinse with lukewarm water and wipe your brush against a paper towel. Tip: Be careful not to get the brush barrel wet, as it will loosen the bristles and cause them to fall out.

Next, use liquid dish soap and a clean sponge to scrub your brushes clean. Pour a little of the dish soap on top of the sponge and then rub your brush against the surface. And again, rinse with lukewarm water, wipe with a towel to remove any leftover debris and lay your brushes flat to dry.

Finally, Olive oil is a great way to not only clean smaller brushes, but also to condition the bristles. In this case, it’s okay to submerge your makeup brushes into the oil. Rub them against a sponge and you’ll start to see all those caked-up pieces of product come off.

Cleaning your brushes regularly is a good habit, not only will you keep your colors fresh you'll keep those rushes safe by getting rid of the bacteria that can get caught in those bristles.

I hope you find these tips helpful. Be the most beautiful you!
