Clean Your Brushes!!

Something has come to my attention that I just assumed everyone did, but apparently a lot of you do not!

I really need to stress how incredibly important it is that you clean your makeup brushes!!!

If you are going to invest in makeup brushes and believe me, it is an investment, you really should be cleaning them on a regular basis. I am talking to you-->the everyday consumer! Makeup artist brushes are a whole different story-they have their own set of rules to follow. They are touching multiple faces with their brushes and need to seriously sterilize their tools, it is part of their job. I am directing this at the everyday women who uses the same foundation brush for 6 months without cleaning it--GGGRRROOOSSSSSS!
  • Any brush that you are using to apply wet products, such as foundation brushes, needs to be cleaned everyday!
  • Any brush that you are using on your eyes, such as eyeshadow, should be cleaned every day with brush cleaner and deep cleaned every couple days. 
  • Any brush that you are using to apply powder products, such as loose powder or blush, should be cleaned once a week.
If you do not clean your brushes, they will breed bacteria faster than a Duggar breeds babies and that bacteria will be transferred to your face every time you use your brushes. If you can't figure out why you are breaking out so much, try cleaning your makeup brushes! As well as the bacteria being transferred to your skin, you will have transferred it to your products, therefore contaminating them! Why would you spend your hard earned cash just to ruin your makeup!?

Now in between cleanings, I also use MAC Brush Cleanser. You put a few drops on a paper towel and run your brush over it until there is no more product left on your brush. This will clean and sanitize your brushes but this does not replace deep cleaning your brushes. If you only use these brush cleansers, a residue will form on your brushes so you do still need to clean them.

Everyone has their own way of cleaning their brushes. I have heard a lot of people favor baby shampoo. I personally use Dial anti-bacterial hand soap.
For tough jobs, I soak my brushes in a glass (such as honeybun's shot glasses which he gets a little pissy about) with some MAC Brush Cleanser and then wash with Dial soap. If you clean your brushes on a regular basis, there will not be such a need to "deep clean" them because there will not be so much product on your brushes.


REMEMBER: When you are cleaning and drying your brushes, it is very important to tilt your brushes BRUSH SIDE DOWN-NEVER UP. You do not want water to get into the ferrule (metal part) because it will eventually ruin your brushes. Keep that in mind if you are going to soak your brushes in a cleanser-do not let the liquid go past the ferrule.

Brushes are not cheap, again they are an investment. You want to keep and take care of your brushes for a very long time. Makeup is not cheap either, so why ruin it with poor sanitary conditions?

So the lesson learned today is:
Clean your brushes and keep them sanitary, keep your makeup happy and your skin beautiful!

Your Welcome!
