Your skin tone/coloring: Below my name

What do you use to wash your brushes? Dr. Bronner’s liquid soap unscented except I use the bar soap version for foundation brushes. If the foundation isn’t coming out easily, I will rub the brush with baby oil and then soap it up again or occasionally use Cinema Secrets followed by the soap bar.

How often do you wash your brushes? About every two weeks, sometimes more often. I hate seeing a dirty brush so I probably wash the white ones more often.

How do you store your brushes? For brushes I use regularly, standing up in glass candle holders from a dollar store. Duplicates and brushes not used often are flat in a box in a drawer of my vanity.

I wash my brushes with Dawn detergent. If I have really sticky pigment like WP eyeliner on a brush, I soak it in eye makeup remover oil based product first, then Dawn soap.
I wash brushes weekly if I have the time and sometimes this gets delayed but never less than monthly–if a brush looks REALLY grungey I wash it right away and let it dry over the day. I have spare brushes so if I don’t have time to wash daily and brushes look nasty then I have a container they get moved to until I wash on the weekend–usually on Sunday.
I store my brushes in customized containers I purchased from Etsy and the extras go in a makeup drawer.
