Now we're at home 24/7, we have had a complete personality transplant.

Once upon a time, we were spending our weekends at bottomless brunches. Now we're doing a home workout followed by tidying our bedroom.

Life comes at you fast, huns.

We have to admit, we love how organised we're all becoming with all this spare time.

Another admin task which we never normally found the time for (oops!) was cleaning our make-up brushes.

Now we are the 'organised, Stacey Solomon type', we were all ears when makeup guru Jamie Genevieve revealed her top tip for cleaning brushes. It's a good 'un.

The YouTuber has ammassed 1.3 million Instagram followers from her makeup knowhow, so naturally we needed to know all the goss.

Turns out, all you need is your favourite soap and a SIEVE.

Jamie starts by filling her sink with hot water, before adding soap under the running tap. She recommends Dr. Bronner’s Rose Pure-Castile Liquid Soap (it's good) however you can just as easily use the soap you do have.

The Scottish make-up artist then explained how she uses a sieve, which is normally reserved for er, flour, to get the brushes really clean.

After dipping the brushes in soapy water, Jamie floods half of the sieve with water, then swirls her dirty make-up brush around, using the mesh to dislodge the product from the brush.

Ruddy genius.

Keep refilling the water, to ensure you aren't swilling your brushes around in dirty water. Then leave the brushes to dry on a clean towel.

One user wrote, '“All the money I wasted on fancy brush pads and I could have used my sieve”.
