So this is a job that can be a bit tedious but trust me it is truly worth it and hygienic! Dirty face brushes can contain oil buildup which can block your pores and cause breakouts and dirty eyeshadow brushes will cause your eyeshadow application to turn muddy especially if there is dark eyeshadow on them.
So cleaning your brushes is essential for flawless application. I would recommend cleaning your brushes at least once a month or twice if you have oily skin. In between these deep cleans you can wipe off your brushes on clean cloth after use.
Okay so on to what we will need:
- Johnson’s Baby Shampoo
- A sink
- A clean old towel to set out your clean brushes on
Pour a small amount of Johnson’s Baby Shampoo into the palm of your hand.
Swirl the brush around in the palm of your hand, you will notice the product starting to come off.
Rinse of your brush until the water runs clear and you have a lovely clean brush! (while rinsing hold the brush downwards and only wet the brush part do not let water go into the ferule i.e. the bit where the metal and wood meet)
Gently squeeze off the excess water with a clean dry towel, and reshape your brushes before finally setting them out on a clean dry folded towel with the brush end hanging off the edge of the towel.
Once they’re fully dry you can gently swirl the fluffy brushes on the palm of a clean hand to fan them back out a bit. I hope that was useful for you, happy cleaning.
Till next time,
