If you don’t clean them every other week all sorts of oil, dirt, and bacteria can build up on your brushes. The result? Your attempts at a modern vintage beauty look or a bronzed beauty look may end up less than stellar. And while one GoJane girl confessed to throwing her brushes away when they got dirty, we have another method that’s far more preferable: deep cleaning your brushes.
You’ll need: olive oil, makeup brushes, antibacterial soap, paper towels, and a plate
Tip: Olive oil works for deep cleaning because most makeup has some oil component and oil removes oil far better than water alone does
