Autumn Whewell | Makeup Brushes – How To Take Care of Them + How To Use Them

Why Is Cleaning Makeup Brushes Important?

Keeping our makeup brushes clean provides a better quality application, creating a smoother, more even look. Consequently, when my makeup isn’t applying evenly, especially with my eyeliner brush, I know it’s time to clean the brush! Additionally, using clean brushes will also decrease the risk of infection, and decrease spreading bacteria. As a result, this helps with keeping skin clear and fresh. Furthermore, it should reduce black heads and acne. Using dirty makeup brushes will spread bacteria and grime, increasing break outs, and nobody wants that. Just like it’s important to wash our face at the end of the day, it’s equally important to use hygienic tools. Therefore, I have been attempting to clean my brushes more often, about once a month, at night so that they have time to dry properly.

How To Take Care of Makeup Brushes

1. Rinse with warm water in the sink, let them soak a bit
2. Add a drop of face wash (or makeup brush cleanser) on the brushes
3. Wash them in an upward motion, as to not bend the bristles backwards
4. Rinse thoroughly in warm water to remove all soap and makeup
5. Place brushes in correct form and let dry on a clean towel
