Clean Makeup Brushes

Good Morning everyone! Hope you all are enjoying your Sunday! :)

I washed my makeup brushes last night for a bridal trial that I will be doing this afternoon. The bride is my good friend's sister. The wedding is this coming Saturday so I will be doing the trial makeup for the bride as well as 5 bridesmaids. I will be honest and say that this is actually my first time doing a bridal trial. I'm pretty excited because this is something that I've always wanted to do. Now that the opportunity has presented itself, I couldn't be happier. Freelancing is perfect for me right now being that I am a stay-at-home mama of 3. I'll do my best to take pictures. With 6 girls it might be a little hectic, but I'm ready!

Here are my freshly baby-shampooed brushes, along with a comparison of my brushes in 2008.

I wash my most-used brushes weekly, which usually takes about 45 minutes. Washing all of my brushes took me a little over 2 hours. I washed each of them individually.

How often do you wash your brushes? How long does it usually take you?
