BeautyBlenders are pure magic. They make you look flawless on a daily basis, help you contour like no other brush can and, frankly, they’re cute as all hell. Not so magic, however, is the gunk that’s left behind after you’ve finished your makeup. Try this stress-free cleaning method next time your blender gets a little grody. (You can even catch up on Netflix while you do it.)
Step 1: Squeeze a bit of gentle shampoo into a bowl of warm water and swish them together until sudsy.
Step 2: Dunk your blender in and squeeze so it can absorb the soapy water. Leave it to soak for 30 minutes.
Step 3: Rinse the blender off and apply more shampoo to any spots that are still dirty. Gently work the suds in and rinse thoroughly with cold water.
Step 4: Squeeze out as much excess water as you can, leave it to dry overnight and wake in the morning to a BeautyBlender that’s good as new.
