Why & How should your clean all of your makeup brushes/Tools

Hey there… It’s Esther here. 

 

Today’s blog post is about cleaning your makeup brushes. I asked via Instagram stories yesterday…

 

If anyone would like to know more about cleaning makeup brushes…

 

EVERYONE SAID YES! 🙂

 

Let’s get started…

 

How often should you clean your makeup brushes?

 

Most dermatologists will tell you to clean your tools, especially foundation and concealer brushes, once a week — at a minimum — to prevent product buildup.

 

What should you use to clean your makeup brushes?

 

The best (and most thorough) method for cleaning your tools requires only water and either a gentle soap or brush cleaner–regular soap formulas can dry out the brush’s bristles, especially if they are made of natural hair.

 

HOW:

 

Follow these seven steps for cleaner, good-as-new brushes, and blenders.

 

1 Wet the bristles with lukewarm water.

2 Place a drop of makeup brush cleanser or soap into the palm of your hand.

3 Gently massage the tips of the bristles in your palm.

4 Rinse the bristles.

5 Squeeze out the excess moisture with a clean towel.

6 Reshape the brush head.

7 Let the brush dry with its bristles hanging off the edge of a counter, thereby allowing it to dry in the correct shape. Never let your brushes dry on a towel — the bristles can become mildewed.

 

BONUS TIPS:

 

  • Never let your brushes dry on a towel — the bristles can become mildewed.

 

  • Mid-wash, keep the base of the brush head away from soap and water.

 

  • The bristles are glued to the base, and water and detergent can cause the glue to disintegrate and the bristles to come loose and shed.

 

  • Do not dry vertically — this will cause water to leak into the ferrule [the piece that joins the bristles to the wand], which will also loosen the glue and lead to bristle loss.
