The Simple, Easy Way to Clean Your Makeup Brushes
Lamora Beauty Blog | 10/8/2019
Your makeup brushes need to stay clean because over time product can build up on your makeup brushes and germs may even be residing in the bristles.
By cleaning them out every week or at least once a month, depending on how frequently you apply your makeup with the brushes, you can avoid dirty brushes. Here is what you need to keep your makeup brushes clean and residue-free:
Use warm running water, (being careful not to fully immerse the base of the bristles) to get rid of as much product as possible. Try using your fingers to get rid of any bits lodged toward the base of the brush head.
Place a pea-sized drop of brush cleanser (or any mild cleanser like baby shampoo) in the palm of your hand. Swirl the bristles in the cleanser in a circular motion until the brush is fully lathered. Rinse the bristles, squeezing from the base to the tips to remove excess water.
Repeat until the water runs clear and all makeup is removed from the brush. Reshape the bristles to their original form and then use a lint-free cloth to dry each of the brushes, or you can let them air dry and place them on a cloth. You can also gently brush bristles on paper towel to remove buildup.
(Tip: Wash brushes at night so they are dry and ready for use in the morning.)
