Hi everyone, my name is Joi, makeup artist in New York, and I want to show you all today how to clean your makeup brushes using sesame oil. So, I’ve got my oil here, I’ve got a brush that needs cleaning, and I’m going to be using the towel as a place to clean everything up. So, if you don’t have sesame seed oil, you actually could use olive oil or any other sort of thicker oil that you have at home. So, you’re just going to take a little bit here, pour it onto the paper towel, and with this, just going to coat the bristles with the oil. Now, at this stage the idea is not necessarily to completely clean the brushes with the oil. The purpose of the oil is to actually loosen up any makeup or body paints or any thicker makeup products that might be stuck to the bristles. So, we’re going to apply the oil, and you’re actually going to then let the brush sit. You can let it set overnight. If you need the brushes in a hurry, you can check them maybe about an hour later, dab on the paper towel, and see if anything is coming off. If it’s starting to loosen, at that point then you want to go ahead and clean your brushes as usual with a mild soap, a mild body wash, or whatever it is that you normally use to clean your brushes. Following up after that, you want to make sure that when you’re drying the brushes that you lay them down flat. You don’t want to dry your brush upward like this, because moisture actually will travel down into the metal part and loosen the glue and the hairs on your brush. So, hope that this is good information for you all to keep your brushes in good condition, and thank you for watching. Bye!
