Clean Makeup Brushes… the Right and Easy Way!

We know, makeup brushes tend to become super gross, and even then, we’re either too lazy to clean them, or we just simply keep forgetting to do so. If this is the case with you, it’s time to give them a good, nice cleaning! Now you’re probably thinking about the load of work that awaits you, but sit back and relax as we’re going to give you some tips that will take care of your dear makeup brushes and, we’ll show you how damaging it is for your skin to keep using a dirty makeup brush over and over again!

  • Start off by running hot water on each brush individually.
  • Dip it in a bowl containing gentle shampoo and gently rub it with your fingers for a few minutes. I know, this sounds tiring but it’s actually good for your expensive brushes, as well as for your skin!
  • Afterwards, run some water on them again for another minute.
  • Some brushes take more time to become sparkling clean, so don’t hesitate to repeat the process.
  • If your brush is clean to perfection, squeeze out the water from it and let it dry on a towel by laying it flat. Avoid at any price stacking your brushes on top of each other in order to let them dry properly and keep the weird smell at bay.

Last but not least, when investing in good brushes, opt for synthetic ones as they are low-maintenance, easy to clean and long-lasting.
