Cleaning Your Makeup Brushes - Ask the Experts: Sabrina

Why is it important to clean your makeup brushes?

Cleaning your brushes the proper way can prolong the life of your brushes and keep them and most importantly your face clean. Although we may not have time to clean them daily, cleaning them once a week can even be a huge success. Doing this can in rid them of:

*Old Makeup
*Dirt and Debris
*Dead Skin Cells

A huge benefit in regular cleaning is the softness of your bristles.
Also, if you can have more than one set of brushes, you can rotate them out during cleanings.

How to clean in 3 easy steps:
1) Pointing brushes hair bristles down, wet under lukewarm water.
2) Using a sulfate free shampoo or baby shampoo ( I prefer Burt's Bees)
gently rub shampoo through bristles on brushes still point down until your
water runs clear from the bristles.
3) Gently squeeze water out of bristles, rub on towel,reshape, and lay flat
on towel to dry.

Drying times will vary depending on the size of the brush and amount of bristles.

Be sure not to soak or get entire brush wet as this will loosen the glue holding the brush together.
