we all know that cleaning our makeup brushes before using them is a big must. in my case, i clean my face brushes at least 2x a week (unless i use them for cream/liquid foundation, in which case i clean them after each use) and my eyeshadow brushes before i use them.
for my eyeshadow brushes, i make use of my ever-reliable Beauty Bar Makeup brush cleanser. but as you all know, i've been buying a lot of makeup these days and i have to look for some ways to cost-cut on some of my expenses. in less than a week, i'd be able to finish up the bottle of my BB brush cleanser...i need to get another one before it happens. but i'm on a no-buy (yeah, right!) so i would need to come up with something that will be as effective but at the same time be able to save me at least Php 500!
my big thanks to Nikki for posting her version of the home-made brush cleaner...it's indeed a peso-saving post! so now i have a few more bucks to add to my MAC Heatherette fund.
i know a lot of you have already posted the steps on how to make this cleanser, but i'm gonna post mine anyways...
what you need:
water (distilled or tap water...whatever!), dishwashing liquid, alcohol 70% solution, leave-on conditioner (liquid-type) and baby shampoo
empty bottle to store your brush cleanser, mixing container, measuring cup and spoons
step 1: Pour a cup of water to your mixing container
step 2: Add 1/4 cup of alcohol to your mixing container
step 3: Add 1/2 tbsp of dishwashing liquid
step 4: Add 1/2 tbsp of baby shampoo
step 5: Add 1 tbsp of leave-on conditioner
step 6: Using a stirrer, mix all the ingredients
step 7: And finally, pour the liquid into your empty bottle
and tadaaahhh...you're home-made makeup brush cleanser:
i just saved a few hundreds of peso...and that alone makes me all giddy, more peso being added to the Heatherette fund.
and of course, mom gotta have one too (roll eyes)
hehehhe...a bottle for the kikay daughter, and a bottle for the more kikay mom! :)
