Keeping your makeup brushes with brush holder squeaky clean is simple and easy. We will use this article to share with you some easy and simple ways to accomplish this little task and enjoy the benefits of using clean brushes to apply your makeup.
What you’ll need
Grab your dirty makeup brushes, a shallow bowl, some baby shampoo or other preferred gentle soap and a lint and hair free cloth and let’s get started.
- Washing: Start by running your makeup brushes under lukewarm water to wash out the leftover makeup. Avoid flushing the dirty water too close to where the handle meets the bristles of the brush, as the water can weaken the glue in that area. Next you’re going to make some warm soapy water in the bowl and gently swirl the tip of the brush around in the bowl. For brushes that have not been washed for some time, you can create a lather while washing each by gentle swirl the tips on the palm of your hand. Avoid crushing the bristles down into the palm of your hand as this cause them to start falling out. Rinse the brushes under warm water again and repeat step one until the water from the brushes clean and clear.
Note: You should wash your makeup brushes with warm water and a gentle soap at least once every three months. For even better hygienic practices and happier brushes, wash them once per week, and even daily for those who have acne prone skin. Filthy tips can interfere with your artwork. Washing them once per week will keep the bristles soft, allowing for easier application as well as making it possible for you to capture the true pigment you want. Baby shampoo is a good example of the kind of soap you should use for cleaning your brushes.
- Reshaping: Use the clean lint/hair free cloth to wipe the bristles of your makeup brushes clean, reshaping them downward as you work it. This helps each brush maintain its original shape and structure.
- Drying: Most people leave their brushes lie flat for drying, but the best way to dry your brushes is to air dry them with the brush side down. You can create a dryer for your makeup brushes by simply placing pedicure separators across the top of a mason jar and sticking the brushes in the separators brush-side down.
