I am one of those people who struggle to make myself clean my makeup brushes because it is such a time-consuming activity! I also have never bought a cleaning mat, which seems like a great tool to wash brushes. I honestly did not want to spend money on a mat, so I did a little bit of research and found a way to make a brush cleaning mat on my own! Whaaaat!
Anyway... If you want to learn the steps of making a DIY makeup brushes cleaning mat, and begin your journey to cleaner brushes, keep reading! :)
It is a very easy and fairly quick process to make a cleaning mat. All you need is a glue gun and a thick plastic plate!
After you get these supplies, turn on your glue gun. Using the hot glue, make squiggly lines, vertical lines, big and little dots, or whatever shape you want! My tip is to take your time doing it! Do not rush, or you will mess up! I ruined my first plate because I was so impatient.
This is how my cleaning plate came out! I tried it out today and cleaned some of my brushes with it. I felt so cool that I made it on my own, and it was a great help in cleaning my brushes. I recommend to only clean brushes on it, and not your beauty blender or any other sponges!
I hope this quick DIY lesson inspires you to make your own makeup brushes cleaning mat! If you do end up making it, share it with me on Instagram! Just tag #LifeOfArdorDIY! :)
Enjoy the rest of your week! I will see you in my next post! :)
