e.l.f. review

Let's take a moment and be honest. 
If you're like me, you clean your make-up brushes every few months.
Ideally, we're supposed to clean those bad boys once a week. ooops!
I recently bought the e.l.f. brush shampoo
This stuff is great because
 * it's $3
* it's antibacterial 
* a little goes a long way

Fill up a small dish with a little bit of the shampoo and warm water.

I found for your concealer & foundation brushes, it's best to put soap directly on them and wash under the faucet. You may have to do this twice depending on how often you wash your brushes.
Rinse and lay out to dry overnight.

Happy cleaning :)

I've been looking for an inexpensive brush cleaner, so I just picked this up online! Thank you!

I need to go and get this because I haven't cleaned my brushes in a long long time! : )

I am so with you on washing mine once a month. I even got this Sonia Kashuk spray and I still don't use it often enough.

I like your brush holder, though!
