D.I.Y. Brush Cleanser

You have to keep your makeup brushes clean folks. This will save you time and lots of money on your beautiful brushes. Each time you use your brushes it’s contaminated with bacteria, oxidized colors, skin oils, and no telling what else. Keeping your brushes clean will keep those contaminants away from you and your brushes. To help you in your new quest for fresh and clean brushes I found a great little home project for you! The perfect solution for a D.I.Y brush cleanser! This is something you can do at home easy, quickly and with things you have in the house! Can’t get better than that!
