Cleaning Makeup Brushes

When it comes to applying makeup, using clean brushes is very important. Dead skin cells and oils from your skin clinging to the bristles, along with makeup build-up, can shorten the life of your brushes. Dirty brushes can also harbor bacteria.

You can easily and inexpensively clean your brushes.
  1. Dampen the bristles with warm water.
  2. Add 1-2 drops of baby shampoo or a gentle facial cleanser. Work into a later.
  3. Rinse the bristles thoroughly with warm water.
  4. Blot with a towel and shape the bristles into their original shape.
  5. Lay flat on towel and allow to air-dry.

Please remember to keep your brushes flat when cleaning them. Never point the handle down. Doing so can cause the water to loosen the glue on the handle.
