Did you know that your makeup brushes also need cleaning and washing? Washing your makeup brushes should be a regular part of your beauty routine because you use your brushes, bits of makeup, oil, dirt, and even bacteria can get in the bristles and lead to clogged pores and pimples. Not to mention the fact that quality makeup brushes can be expensive, so by properly cleaning them, you are also extending their usage period.
Typically, most experts suggest cleaning them weekly, but try to wash them at least every 2 weeks if you are too lazy to do it weekly. It will only take a few minutes to wash them all, and if you do it before bedtime they will be nice and dry for use in the morning.
Luckily, cleaning your makeup brushes is quick and easy.
You will need:
• A shallow bowl
• Gentle clarifying shampoo or baby shampoo
• A lint free cloth
Begin by placing your brushes under lukewarm water, rinsing out all of the residual makeup.
Fill a bowl with lukewarm water and put a drop of shampoo, and gently swirl your brush tip in the water.
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 and lay your brushes flat on a cloth to dry.
And there you have it!
