It may seem like a no brainer to wash your makeup brushes, but I don’t think the importance of regularly washing your brushes is understood. Even if you don’t use your brushes every day, weekly cleaning will not only make for better use but your brushes will last longer. There are daily cleansers available that you simply spritz onto your brush after every use. At least once a week you should give them a deeper clean to wash out residual make up, oils and even bacteria. You will not only notice a huge difference in your brushes the next time you use them, you will be happy you did it!


To begin you will need a gentle shampoo or brush cleaner and a glass of water along with a cloth or paper towel.
