Cleaning your face every day is important so cleaning your make up brushes should be just as important too. If you don’t, your technically just rubbing bacteria and dirt around your face which will only cause more spots. I tend to clean mine depending on how much I use them, I don’t wear make up every day, probably only about once or twice a week, so I tend to wash my brushes once a month. But if you use your brushes everyday, i’d definitely recommend cleaning them every two weeks.
I’ve seen some make up brush cleaner in drug stores which are qu ite expensive and when I used one a few months ago, it didn’t actually work. I had seen a few people online say they use moisturising hand wash so I thought i’d give it ago. I was actually so surprised, for only about £1 I picked up this Simple moisturising hand wash and it was brill, it worked so well and my brushes felt amazing and so soft. I would 100% recommend anyone to use moisturiser to clean their brushes, it works so well.
- Firstly, run each brush under warm water.
- Then pump a small bit of moisturiser (or whatever you choose to use) onto the end of your brush.
- Swirl your brush in your hand and let the moisturiser lather up. Keep running the brush under the water and you’ll be able to see all the make up coming off in the sink.
- Once looking clean, squeeze all the excess water still left in the brush.
- Leave your brushes on a towel over night to dry and wah laa, fresh new clean brushes.
Cleaning your brushes can be a boring task that we all sometimes forget to do, but it’s so easy, quick and important for you to do. Just think, clean brushes equals a clean face 🙂 xo.
