I walked into Sephora yesterday just to look around (I may or may not do that a lot) anyways, their Daily Brush Cleaner caught my eye. I TRY to wash my brushes once a week, but it rarely happens. So, I said to myself “self, maybe if you had a quick cleaner you could just spray onto your brushes after you used them life would be easier” (insert awkward glances form Sephora employes and innocent bystanders because I’m talking to myself). Then I glanced at the price, it was 18 bucks! Then I thought “well maybe the ingredients are so high end they deserve what they charge” I quickly lifted the flap to discover the ingredients are… DRUMROLL PLEASE: ALCOHOL and FRAGRANCE, wow fancy :). So, today I’m makin some myself and you should too! This is a quick way to clean in between eyeshadow & blush colors, also great to keep in your kit if you do makeup on others, the formula is quick drying so you will need less brushes.
- Distilled Water
- Fragrance Oil
- Spray Bottle
Add the alcohol into a clean spray bottle, I like to dilute mine about 70/30. The higher percentage being the alcohol of course, add your distilled water, then add 10 to 15 drops of fragranced oil I chose AURA CACIA LAVENDER-ESSENTIAL OIL, this will help cut the alcohol odor and also help condition your brushes.
As you can see I used it right away, look at all the color that is on the towel, it worked great! That’s it, you are done, now take the 18 bucks I saved you and buy me, errr, I mean yourself something pretty at Sephora 🙂
