Makeup is more than a way to cover up flaws and imperfections. It’s also a form of artistic expression, and your arsenal of makeup brushes are your tools to complete your look.
With that in mind, regular cleaning of your makeup brushes is crucial to keep them intact. It also helps you maintain healthy and attractive skin, which is more difficult when soiled brushes are used again and again. This handy guide explains what happens when you don’t clean your brushes, as well as offering tips on how to do so.
After a long day, you certainly don’t want to add to your list of personal chores and duties. However, neglecting proper maintenance of your makeup tools may cause the following effects:
The process for cleaning your makeup brushes is surprisingly easy. About once a week, use warm water and a mild soap to clean off all brushes that have touched your face. There are also specially made cleansers you can use, which are designed to be gentle enough to keep bristles intact.
After wetting the brush, apply soap or cleanser and gently massage the bristles with your fingers. Rinse the brush and thoroughly squeeze out all excess water before leaving the brushes to air dry. Be careful about letting water get into the part of the brush where the bristles and handle meets, as this can degrade the adhesive holding the brush together. Allow brushes to dry by laying them on a counter with the bristles hanging over the edge.
Along with maintaining the essential tools in your makeup arsenal, you should also choose beauty products that make you feel wonderful inside and out.
