I know a lot of you know about this, but I find this topic so important that I decided to make a post about it.
Everything you put on your face should be clean, this includes your makeup brushes. The last thing you want is to use a dirty brush (that looks clean) to apply makeup to your freshly cleaned face. This can lead to acne.
I don't know about you but I find cleaning makeup brushes fun. :) For those of you who don't really like cleaning, cleaning brushed are quick and easy.
Here is how I do it:
- Run brushes under water
- Use a hand soap or baby shampoo and work it through the bristles
- Rub the brush on the back of your hand, as if you were painting (now you should see all of the makeup coming off).
- Rinse the brush until the water that comes out of it is completely clear
- Store with the brush up and handle down.
