How To Clean Your Makeup Brushes & Why it is Important to Clean Them

How to clean makeup brushes

Hello beauty enthusiasts! Did you know that regularly cleaning your makeup brushes is essential for maintaining healthy skin and extending the life of your brushes? Here’s why it’s important and how to do it:

Prevent Bacteria Buildup: Makeup brushes can harbour bacteria, oil, and dead skin cells, which can lead to breakouts and skin irritation if not cleaned regularly.

Maintain Brush Performance: Clean brushes apply makeup more evenly and smoothly, ensuring flawless makeup application every time.

Extend Brush Lifespan: Regular cleaning helps prevent product buildup and keeps the bristles soft and supple, prolonging the lifespan. 

Here’s how to clean your makeup brushes:

  1. Rinse the tips of your brushes under lukewarm, running water to remove residual makeup. Only rinse the tip, as submerging the whole brush head will eventually dissolve the glue that connects the brush head to the handle.
  2. Fill a bowl with lukewarm water and a tablespoon of either gentle shampoo or clarifying shampoo. Using plain soap and water can dry out the bristles.
  3. Swirl each brush tip in the bowl. For a good lather, you can also massage each brush tip in the palm of your hand.
  4. Rinse the brush tips under running water.
  5. Continue shampooing and rinsing each brush until the water runs clear from the brush.
  6. Squeeze out excess moisture with a clean, dry paper towel.
  7. Lay your brushes flat to dry on a towel with the tips hanging off the edge of the counter. Do not dry your brushes upright in a container, as this will cause the water to run down the brushes, loosening the glue that connects the brush head with the handle.

By incorporating regular brush cleaning into your beauty routine, you can enjoy healthier skin and flawless makeup application every day!
