How i keep my make up brushes clean


Keeping your make up brushes clean is one of the most important things. I use mine of a min of once a day, but most of the time tones more. For me, i cant stand dirty brushes, so i try to clean them once a week. This is also good because if you get spots easily and you use your make up brushes a lot, then the germs linger, and can cause you to get more spots. (Logic my mum pointed out to me) 

Anyways here's how i clean my brushes.

What i use:
- Baby Shampoo
- Flannel 



Starting off with my (very) dirty brushes i run some warm water, and put some baby shampoo on to the bristles. I then start cleaning them by going around and around in circles on my flannel, repeating this until all of the foundation or powder comes off on to the flannel and my brush is clean. 


Making sure the water hasn't got to hot i rinse the brush and dry it, Using the same motions i used to wash them. 



I continue to do this process with all of my brushes until i can tell they are clean (until the ends are white).


I thought seeing as i have showed you the quick process i use to clean my brushes that i would also show you what brushes i own. 
These are the main 4 that i own and use every day, From urban decay. 
They were defiantly something to invest in as they are pretty amazing brushes and have lasted a while, oh and they feel amazing! 
They are 

Lets just say these brushes have not let me down!
What make up brushes do you have?
