I clean my makeup brushes as much as the next girl … close to never. However, my beauty blender is a different story. Makeup sponges can go from zero to disgusting real quick (insert “Girl finds bugs in her Beauty Blender” video here). With that being said, I do like to clean my beauty blender whenever I notice it looking like it’s rolled around the streets of Manhattan for a week. Luckily, I found an easy and effective way to do this!
If you’d like to see how, please keep reading!
You will need:
- Warm water
- Baby shampoo
- Hand towel
- Dirty makeup sponges
Wet your makeup sponge entirely until it expands (do as you would if you were about to use it).
Apply a small amount of baby shampoo to the palm of your hand.
Work the beauty sponge in circular motions on your palm.
Step 4 (optional):
Watch weeks of residue makeup ooze out of your sponge in fascination, as you would a pimple popping video.
Rinse your makeup sponge under the warm water and repeat steps 2 and 3 until the water runs clean.
Thanks so much for reading!
