DIY Makeup Brush Cleaner

Good Morning Everyone!

So today I thought I would share with you a my attempts at a DIY project! This project was inspired by this product right here:

This is the Sigma Spa Brush Cleaning Glove. It retails for $35 bucks on the Sigma site.

Now I'm not knocking Sigma but um....I'm not going to spend $35 bucks on a glove with bumps on it to clean my brushes. However I was intrigued by the design and thought.....why can't I make that?

So I did...........kinda.

I didn't have a thick rubber glove so instead I thought I would use a Cool Whip lid.

Why? Because I am classy like that.........also it is what I had on hand.

Here's what I used:

Just a hot glue gun, the glue is already loaded in, and then a cool whip lid. No biggie.

Next you take your hot glue gun and draw happy little shapes. I know my shapes are wonky but I didn't have a lot of glue and basically I was just trying to get it done quickly while Kyra was napping. You get the general idea though.

Let things dry for a bit and then it is time for testing! Here is my dirtiest brush by face/foundation brush. Also I am using baby shampoo to clean the brushes. Let's try this baby out!

Yep it is working....gross.

After a few moments of light scrubbing over my homemade shapes, we have a clean brush!

Here is the residue left over after cleaning on my homemade cleaner. I continued on after this image to clean the rest of my makeup brushes and a good deal of the residue came off after that but I would let the glue dry a little longer to avoid the makeup stuff sticking to it.

Overall thoughts?

This actually did make cleaning my brushes much easier and much faster. It took probably  half the time and I used a lot less water which made me very happy. All in all I would say this was a pretty successful DIY! Also the cost was was free! 

If you all decide to make one of you own I would love to see them! Post in the comments below!

Big hugs to you all! Happy May Day!
