Girls- I can’t tell you enough, your makeup brushes will stay in better condition, and will apply your makeup better if they are clean! So please, clean your makeup brushes at least every 2-3 days. Some brushes should be cleaned after each use, like your eyeliner brush or lip brush! How to clean your makeup Brushes:
Also, proper and frequent cleaning of your makeup brushes will greatly reduce your risk of infections or irritations.
Here are some general tips on how to clean your brushes:
Use warm water to clean the brushes.
Apply either a small amount of mild shampoo, antibacterial soap or brush cleanser.
Gently lather the brush and rinse under warm water until the water comes out clear and all makeup has been removed.Thoroughly rinse all soap out of brushes.
Squeeze out the excess water in the brushes.
Lay the brushes flat on a towel and allow them to air dry.
If you don’t have time to let them air dry over night and you need to clean them right away and have them dry within a few minutes you can use a fast drying brush cleaner.
My favorite one is Namie’s brush cleaner you can put it in a spray bottle, spray on brushes and gently swipe back and forth and gentle circles on a paper towel until clean and disinfected. This is the easiest and quickest way to clean your makeup brushes. It removes all types of makeup. It has the best scent out of all the makeup brush cleaners that I’ve tried, and doesn’t leave any residue on your brushes. It also evaporates very quickly, so you can have a clean dry brush within minutes of cleaning it.
