Irish award winning make-up artist, Gillian O’Neil (@gillmakeupbygill), said, “I’ve tried so many make up cleaning products for my brush kit over the years and nothing works better than the Dr. Bronner’s Pure Castile Soap. A few drops go a long way and is enough to cut through any dried foundation, pigmented eyeshadows, lipstick stains ensuring the ultimate clean between each client. My particular favourite is the rose castile soap which leaves your make up brushes not only clean, but with a refreshing scent”.


Irish make-up artist, Gillian O’Neil recommends six easy steps on how to use Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Soap to clean makeup brushes;


Step 1. Squirt a small amount of Dr. Bronner’s castile soap into a clean cup or glass.

Step 2. Wet brushes using lukewarm water and be sure to keep the brush pointing downward as to not get the metal part of the handle which contains the glue or brush handle wet.

Step 3. Dip brush into Dr. Bronner’s castile soap.

Step 4. Swirl brush around the palm of your hand gently and watch the makeup come off easily into your palm.

Step 5. Rinse brush in lukewarm water until water runs clear. If not completely clear repeat steps again.

Step 6. Lay your brushes down flat on a towel to dry. Any brushes that appear to have lost their shape can be re-shaped by brushing the hairs in one direction with your hand.
