    Step 1

    So there are many ways of washing your brushes but this is my way. I dont use anything fancy, just the ordinary things you find around the house! Enjoy :)

    Step 2

    Get the things you need together. Lay out a towel, grab your dirty brushes, a moisturising shampoo and some olive oil. Also grab something to rest your brushes on like a lotion bottle.

    Step 3

    Dampen your dirty brush with luke warm water.

    Step 4

    Put a small amount of moisturising shampoo into the palm of your hand.

    Step 5

    Swirl the brush around. You will notice your hand getting dirty...

    Step 6

    Rinse your brush really well with luke warm water, make sure there is no shampoo left.

    Step 7

    Leave on the towel, with the brush facing down to avoid water seeping into the brush handel.

    Step 8

    Pour a little less olive oil than i did onto a paper towel.

    Step 9

    Swirl your brushes in the oil to condition them.

    Step 10

    Leave to stand like so for 12 hours and you're done! Your brushes will be sparkling clean and ready to be dirtied up again! I hope you enjoyed this guide! comment, like & follow! Much love, Elisa Xx
