Make-Up Brush Care-

Makeup brushes, particularly made with natural hair, are easy to build up and
accumulate dust and dirt quickly. Dirty brushes become a breeding ground for
bacteria. Many women with oily skin often notice traces of inflammation that
appear on their face. They do not suspect that they keep infecting their
skin with their makeup brushes, provoking new rashes. That is why
regular care for your brushes is so important and helps make your
useful beauty kit last longer. Here’re some tips on how to
take proper care of your makeup brushes.

It’s enough to wash your brushes once every 7-10 days. You can
use makeup brush cleansers or any soft shampoo or liquid soap.
Pour warm water in your palm, add some mild shampoo or
cleanser, make foam and wash the brush. Then, rinse the
brush in running water until the water runs clear.

Gently squeeze your brush and let it dry in a standing position
with the bristles up. Make sure not to fluff the bristles. If your skin is oily
and inclined to rashes, it is recommended
you both cleanse and soak your brushes. In this case you
have to buy a special cleanser to “soak” your brushes in once
every three weeks. These cleansers are available at most
beauty supply stores and the Mac counter in your local
department store. There are different brands out there,
including Sephora and Smashbox. Never let anyone
use your makeup brushes. It’s not hygienic.
