Keeping your makeup brushes clean is pivotal to having beautiful, bacteria-free makeup. Cleaning your makeup brushes is essential for two reasons: it helps keep your makeup clean and bacteria-free, and it also extends the life of your brushes. When you take care of your brushes, they’ll care for you!
This blog post teaches you how to clean your makeup brushes. So, keep reading whether you’re looking for a more sustainable option or want to get rid of all the dirt and oil built up on your brushes!
Wet Your Brushes
Start by wetting your brushes with warm water. Ensure you use a mild soap or shampoo if you’d like, but using just water works fine. Wetting helps to loosen up any dirt or makeup caked onto the bristles. Avoid getting water on the metal ferrule (the part of the brush that connects the bristles to the handle), as this can cause rusting.
Gently Rub the Bristles
Once your brushes are wet, gently rub the bristles in your palm or on a towel. Be sure to use circular motions and avoid scrubbing too hard, as this can damage the bristles. If you’re using a soap or shampoo, work it into a lather before rubbing it on the bristles.
Rinse the Brushes
After you’ve rubbed the bristles, rinse them thoroughly with warm water. Again, avoid getting water on the metal ferrule to prevent rusting. If you’re using a soap or shampoo, rinse all the suds out of the bristles.
Dry the Brushes
Finally, shake off any excess water and lay your brushes out on a clean towel to dry. Once they’re dry, you can put them away and enjoy using them with your next makeup application!
