TA-DA! I finally conquered my video software dilemmas...yay!
And now you can go out in the world...armed with the knowledge of how to properly cleanse your make-up brushes...look out world!
things you'll need to begin the conquering:
baby shampoo or gentle/moisturizing shampoo
extra virgin olive oil (no exceptions on the oil, no cooking oils......)
Make-up brushes accumulate oils from the skin, as well as the pigments, waxes, and emollients in make-up. These ingredients and oils, do not dissolve in water (they're designed that way so they don't come off easily), so they require the "like dissolves like" theory....oils dissolve oil.
The olive oil will dissolve and loosen all the make-up from the fibers of the brush, so you can just suds em' up, and they're good as new.
You can also use olive oil as an eye make-up remover...great for your lashes and skin as well...and considering you can buy a gallon of olive oil for about $25 bucks....it'll be the cheapest make-up remover you'll ever have.
