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…




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.




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.




  • 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.
