Use a Hair Donut to Clean Makeup Brushes

Washing your makeup brushes after every use can be a nightmare and whilst spot cleaning is great it can be just as time consuming as deep cleaning. That’s why when I discovered this temporary brush cleaning hack for eyeshadows and the like I felt extremely relieved.

Step 1. Take your dry, dirty makeup brush (this will not work with brushes used with cream or liquid products)

Step 2. Select a hair donut (I prefer to use ones designed for little girls hair because they’re smaller and often lighter coloured allowing you to see the product being removed)

Step 3. Secure the hair donut onto your thumb and gently wipe the bristles of the makeup brush back and forth on the donut (because hair donuts are porous they absorb makeup pigments extremely well)

Step 4. Enjoy your clean makeup brush!
