How I Clean My Makeup Brushes

Cleaning makeup brushes is super important, not only for hygienic reasons but to also improve the performance of your brushes. Brush cleaning is one of those things that people dread doing and always try to put off. However in doing so it’s only causing damage to your brushes and more importantly your skin. Makeup brushes hold loads of bacteria and germs which if you don’t clean, are being spread all over your face which can cause your skin to become irritated and break out in spots.
I will advise that if you have problem skin or acne prone skin that you deep clean your makeup brushes more often, at least three times a month, and try to spot clean them before and after use because in doing so you may notice an improvement in your skin.

Steps in Cleaning Makeup Brushes 
  • Begin by running your brushes under lukewarm water, rinsing out all of the residual makeup. Try to focus on the actual bristles while avoiding the part of the brush where handle meets the head, as this can loosen the glue over time
  • Fill a bowl with lukewarm water and a squirt of shampoo, and gently swirl your brush tip in the water. If you need to, you can also swirl the brush in the palm of your hand to work up a lather.
  • Rinse the brush tip under running water once again. Repeat steps two and three until the water runs clear from the brush,
  • Use a cloth to wipe your brush clean, reshaping the bristles as you go.
  • Lay your brushes flat on a cloth to dry.
Sometimes you might want to clean the brush as you go ,take for example you use a green eyeshadow and want to use the same brush to pick up a gold shadow you might want to use a Cleaning Brush Spray,Spray 2 to 3 pumps directly onto brush hairs and massage into a tissue to remove makeup and sanitise. Repeat as necessary with a clean tissue until bristles are fully clean. Allow brush to air dry before next

Please Note
Dirty brushes become more abrasive and dry as they become more caked with product and debris from your face. ... Cleaning your brushes regularly keeps them soft enough to not cause damage to your face. Avoid germs. Dirty makeup brushes are also a breeding ground for bacteria
