How to Clean Your Make-up Brushes...

...With Crownbrush Brush Cleaner

A Make-up brush Cleaner is designed to enhance the performance and prolong the life of your Crownbrush makeup brushes. It dissolves the build-up of grime, makeup and oil and is ideal for cleaning natural and synthetic brushes when you don't have time to wash them as well as removing stubborn stains and working with oil-based products.

The Crownbrush Make-up brush cleaner comes in three sizes. 2oz- £4.99 (60ml) & 8oz- £9.99 (250ml) with an easy screw on open nozzle- ideally for applying a lot of product into a bowl, tissue or directly on your brushes. There is also 4oz - £8.49(125ml) available which has a spray screw-on nozzle which is perfect travelling or for quick disinfecting brushes on a make-up job. And the best thing about the brush cleaner for me is that it's pink and smells of Vanilla! 

For your brushes that you find you use daily on yourself I would recommend to clean them once a week and for make-up artists to wash them before every job (The night before to allow enough time to dry). Regular Cleaning Will Help Remove: Old Makeup, Dirt and Debris, Dead Skin Cells, Bacteria and Oils.
Another benefit of keeping your makeup brushes clean is softness. Makeup buildup on your brushes can make them feel scratchy. Cleaning your brushes on a regular basis will help keep them soft and supple. This is especially great for people with sensitive skin.

Step-By-Step Guide How to Clean Your Brushes:

Step 1:
Pick your chosen size Crownbrush Make-up Brush Cleaner & 

Step 2:

Squirt a small amount of the brush cleaner in the bowl half way through and now take a dirty make-up brush 


Small sized brush will fit in the Stainless bowl, however larger powder/kabuki brushes will need to be cleaned using the 4oz Spray nozzle or the more tradition way of shampoo and conditioner under water.

Step 3:

This is the fun bit! Like you did in elementary school with your paint brushes (more gently), softly swirl your makeup brushes in the brush cleaner to loosen the oils and makeup. Dump out the dirty cleaner and repeat until your brush runs clean.(If you have a particularly soiled brush, leave your make-up brush to soak in the brush cleaner for 10 minutes)

Step 4:

Gently wipe away any excess makeup brush cleaner on kitchen roll. 

Step 5:
Finally prop the handles of the brushes on a ledge or on top of a folded towel so that the water will drain down and out of the bristles. Let them air dry overnight and fluff in the morning. I suggest never to use a hair dryer it makes the hairs go frizzy and out of shape.
