Why clean your brushes?
Old makeup, facial oils, bacteria and dead skin cells get trapped in your brush, causing uneven coverage and even acne!
- Dish soap
- Warm water
- 2 washcloths or dish towels
Step 1 – Always keeping the brush with the bristles facing down, run the head of the brush under warm water, loosening the dirt and oil in the bristles.
Step 2 – Apply a pea sized amount of dish soap in the palm of your hand and lightly scrub the head of the brush in your palm. Continuously make circular motions with the brush in the palm of your hand until all of the dirt, oil and dead skin cells are removed form your brush.
Step 3 – Again, keeping the bristles facing down, thoroughly wash away all the soap. Squeeze the head of the brush to make sure there is no residue left within the bristles. Now you’re left with a squeaky clean makeup brush!
Step 4 – Let the brushes dry overnight. Lay 1 towel flat, and roll the other towel up to prop up the handles of the brushes while drying. If you let the brushes dry overnight laying flat, or with the bristles pointing up, you risk loosening the glue within the brush head that keep the bristles in place.
