First, I discussed my must-have makeup brushes, now I’m going to share with you how I take care of them. After a few weeks of using your makeup brushes, your face’s natural oil, the makeup, and other dust and debris will start to build up. Cleaning the brushes from time to times keeps all that grime from getting transferred to your face, and it also makes the brush bristles softer and more effective. Read on for a simple method how I clean my makeup brushes.

Remove The Brushes From The Mixture
Rinse The Bristles Under Lukewarm Water
Continue to massage the bristles while running them under the water until it runs completely clear. Avoid getting the handle wet.
Use a clean dish towel or face towel to gently remove some of the moisture.
Spread the bristles apart with your fingers to help get them back in shape.
Make sure the bristles aren’t bent underneath.
When the brushes are completely dry, fluff the bristles a bit. Your brushes are now ready to use.
Bonus Tip: How often you should clean your brushes? I typically clean mine once a month, some like foundation and powder brushes more often. By doing that it helps to maintain my brushes lifespan. Washing my brushes at night allows them to dry so they will be ready for the next day. I just want to make sure that I allow enough time for them to dry thoroughly before using.
Bonus Tip: For brushes that are extra cake-y, use a dab of almond or olive oil to break down the residue before you wash.
And there you have it ladies, easy ways to make sure your makeup brushes are clean.
