If you aren’t in the habit of cleaning your brushes on the regular now is a good time to start. Think of brush cleaning as an essential part of your beauty routine. Dermatologists recommend cleaning makeup brushes every 7-10 days and eye brushes every two weeks.
When it comes to cleaning, regularity + technique are key. Here’s how to properly clean your brushes...
Saturate the brush head under the tap.
Gently swirl bristles into soap to create a lather. You should see color coming off your brush.
Rinse with water by working the soapy bristles in circular motions into the palm of your hand or a silicone brush cleaning mat. These mats are amazingly efficient because their surface is covered in tiny nubs that work their way into the bristles.
Repeat until water runs clear.
