Hi Loves. If ya’ll did not know already, I love makeup. More than makeup I love makeup brushes. I don’t know why, but I’m obsessed with make up brushes and I wish I owned all the brushes in the world. They totally make me feel like a real artist ha! But if there is one thing I do not like doing is washing my brushes. Thats because for a long time I could not figure out how to wash them quickly and throughly. It would take me a long time. Well that was until I purchased a couple of new products.
I purchased a makeup brush cleaning mat. I has made my life so much easier
Find it here!
The original producers of a cleaning mat is Sigma. You can find It here.
I wanted to save a few dollars and went on a hunt for a more affordable version and found this one, I went for the amazon version because it was about one third of the price, and also because it comes with two pieces. One is the regular mat and the other is the travel version.
Along with the mat I bought a brush cleansing gel from real techniques.
In order to start cleaning my brushes I place my mat on my bathroom sink. I make sure to wet the sink first so the suction cups, on the back of the mat, can stick to the sink. This prevents the mat from moving around when I am washing my brushes. Also, I place the beginning of the mat by the drain, not on it, so the dirty water can drain.
Then I put about a small amount of product on top of the brush bristles and, I swivel the brush on the mat. Depending what type of brush, there is a section for it. The mat comes labeled, and guides you by leveling the area where you should wash an eye brush or a face brush.
I clean one brush at a time. I have to repeat the process for some brushes, usually the bigger ones, until they are completely clean.
After buying a cleansing mat and brush cleaner, I clean my brushes so quickly and they actually come out looking new and smelling so good and clean!
