No matter how clean you are, there will come a day when your makeup bag will need to be fully purged of whatever it was that sullied it. While the bag itself can take a tumble in the washer, a true cleaning session involves everything inside of the pouch as well. Here’s how to keep your brushes and makeup sets safe.
If you’re looking for a faster way to clean your makeup bag than using a washer, simply empty out its contents, flip the bag inside out and use makeup remover wipes. These handy sheets get everything off quickly and without much fuss. Once the wipe down is complete, keep the pouch reversed until where you cleaned has dried in full.
Next, take out all of the brushes (including the smaller ones that belong to the eyeshadow cases) and place them in a cup of water that’s been mixed with a small amount of shampoo. Let them soak for about 10 minutes so the soap has time to work its magic. Once done, move the now clean brushes to a dry towel and allow them to air dry.
Finally, it’s time to take on the cases. Like the rest of the bag, these are very easy to clean off. Pull out some more of those makeup remover wipes and use them to clean away all of the gunk that has gathered along the outside and inside of the cases, including any mirrors. Once done with this, return the now dry brushes to their correct containers and place everything back into the now clean makeup bag.
