Beauty Chores: Cleaning Make-Up Brushes

How I clean my make up brushes by

Even though I try not to wear much make-up in the hot and humid weather of Hong Kong, sometimes needs must and make-up brushes must be used. This also means, that said make-up brushes must also be cleaned. Snooooooze.

Cleaning make-up brushes isn't the most thrilling of tasks, but if there is something that will get the job done quickly and get the job done right, then I am all for it.

I previously used to just wash my brushes using my regular shampoo and a bit of conditioner. This method worked just fine to clean my brushes, even if it was a little laborious.

I can't remember where I first saw the solid Blender Cleanser by Beauty Blender, but when I did, I thought that cleaning my brushes with an actual proper make-up brush cleaner could only be a good idea. Also, its compact size meant that it wouldn't take up much space in our teeny bathroom.

When the time came to get down to this task, it turned out I didn't have time to get bored as it was over so quickly. It basically went like this:
1) Turn on tap to dampen the disc-shaped solid brush cleanser
2) Swirl make-up brush on to soap
3) Lather up and see make-up residue come off
4) Rinse
It was so easy. Needless to say, this has become my default way to clean my brushes.

I haven't found anywhere I can buy this in Hong Kong just yet*, but I got mine from Amazon  and had it delivered to a friend in London before she came to visit which was super handy for me and super nice of her to do it.

If you want to try it, the following places ship internationally:
Cult Beauty (one of my faves)
Beauty Bay

*Update: You can now find Beauty Blender and cleansers in Hong Kong at Lane Crawford / Joyce Beauty stores.
