How To Clean Your Makeup Brush

Oct 2, 2017

Sigma makes one of my favorite makeup brushes called the 3DHD Kabuki. It truly works well for cream, liquid, and powder foundation. You can purchase it here for $25.

It’s one of the only foundation brushes I use that isn’t a part of the green beauty community. I normally use Luxie Beauty or Ecotools.

I just wanted to highlight this brand today, because they partnered with an organization called Bright Pink to create a pink makeup brush in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

20% of each brush sold will be donated to Bright Pink which helps women assess their risk of cancer, live a healthy lifestyle, practice self awareness and get help through group and peer support. If you’ve ever struggled with cancer, or losing someone you love to cancer, you realize how important these organizations are.

Access your risk and view their tips on living a healthy lifestyle here.

In order to take care of my makeup brush, I use the Sigma Brush Cleaning Mat once or twice a month and I love it.

It makes cleaning my makeup brush less messy and more convenient. Here are the exact steps:

Sigma also offers a brush cleaner, but I like to use a mixture of water, coconut oil, and lemon juice instead. It works just as well…..

I’ve already ordered the pink brush and can’t wait to get it in! Click on the images below to check them out for yourself and help with this cause:

    I have always ordered the cleaner for my makeup brushes in the past, but now I will mix my own solution thanks to your suggestion! Love the idea that the company gives back for cancer research, therefore, I ordered a brush and mat! The pictures on your blog are always beautiful!

    I’ve been thinking about buying one of those pink brushes by Sigma. I think the cause is really a good cause. Also, I like to use the brush cleaning mat, but I got mine from Ebay and it looks like the Sigma one. I use baby shampoo to wash my brushes. I follow the same procedure in where I put a little of baby shampoo in a cup, wet my brush first, dip it into the shampoo, let the water run while I swirl my brush on my mat. It takes dirt away very quickly. I will order the brush cleaning glove from Sigma too. 🙂

      I haven’t tried the glove so you need to let me know how you like it!
