Cleaning your makeup brushes is a task that everybody dreads. This cleaning plate is an awesome way to make cleaning your makeup brushes faster and easier!
This also prevents your hands from drying when you clean your brushes, as you aren't rubbing the brush on your palm.
Glue different designs in sections onto your plate.

To Clean Your Brushes:
Use your favorite brush cleaner. I used Mary Kay's Brush Cleaner.
Position your plate so that the water runs down it. (I used a scrunchie to keep the plate from sliding while I scrubbed my brushes).
Wet your brushes then apply your brush cleaner to either your plate or your brush. (I used a spray cleaner so I applied the cleanser directly to the brush. If you are using a liquid cleaner apply it directly to the plate.)
Run the brush along the glue. Certain patterns work better for different brushes, so test them on different sections.
Dry the brush on a paper towel.
Reshape the brush.
Then lay the brush flat to dry. (Don't stand it up while drying - the water will loosen the glue holding the bristles in place, causing them to fall out).
This plate is super helpful. The glue allows for optimal cleaning, as you can decide what design to use. The glue also allows for a deeper clean than you would get by simply running the brush along your palm.
