Many of us probably ignore the importance of thoroughly cleaning makeup brushes regularly.
Unclean makeup brushes can be really infectious and can cause much more harm that you thing. Its really advisable to clean your makeup brushes at regular intervals. I choose to do it once in every 45 days.
Here are the steps to follow:
Step – 1
Take a bowl, fill it with water at room temperature and Put 2 – 3 drops of mild shampoo in it.
Step – 2
For, Lipstick, eyeliner, concealer/ foundation brushes or any other brushes that contain water proof/ highly pigmented makeup on it, use a Makeup remover (I use maybelline makeup remover) to clean it first before proceeding to next step. For the eye-shadow, blush, powder brushes, you can skip this step.
Step – 3
Put all the brushes in the bowl with shampoo+water and let it stay for 5-6 hours. you can repeat this step if you feel that the brushes need more cleaning.
Step – 4
Wash the brushes in plain water.
Step – 5
Place them on a clean hand towel and leave it to dry for a day.
Your brushes are now fresh and clean 🙂
