Clean Your Makeup Brushes

Why You Need To Clean Your Makeup Brushes NOW!

Makeup is designed to bind with your skin and if you’re not washing your brushes every day, you’re only allowing layer after  layer of makeup to glue to your bristles. Keep them clean. If not and you’re slathering it all over your face and not getting the true color you want to apply that day. And also if you do not clean then you will clog your pores.

Ever wondered why your skin always looks dry and dull and never dewy? Dirty makeup tools only mean dirty, splotchy, spotty, muddy makeup applications.

Ever wake up and wonder why your skin looks puffy and bloated? Again, another reason why you should grab your makeup brushes STAT and clean them. I like using baby shampoo and warm water. Apply some shampoo to your warm water and work the makeup out using downward strokes when cleaning blush, contour and foundation brushes. Towel dry and spray some alcohol on the brushes to sanitize them.

This will give you a truly clean makeup application and a lovely scent to your brushes. Also you brushes will be very soft also.  Most women are spending a significant amount on cosmetic brushes in order to achieve desired makeup looks, but they’re not protecting their investment or their skin by properly caring for these tools. Allowing dirt and oils to build up on your brushes only shortens their lifespan. And cause you to have infections especially lip brushes.

Why brush cleaner is important to Makeup Artists!

Orlandomakeup.comAs a professional hair dresser and makeup artist you tools are very important. And they are not cheap. So when you are using top of the line makeup brush’s it is important to use the brush cleaner the manufacturer recommends and also makes. If they make the brush’s, I will use the cleaner made for the brush’s. Nearly all of my makeup brush’s are from MAC, and they are very expensive and they have also lasted me along time. This one product will clean, disinfect and condition the brush fibers so that brushes will last longer. It is convenient to use and is specifically designed to extend the life of high quality brushes. Brush cleanser leaves your brushes smelling fresh and clean, and helps shorten their drying time. Take my recommendation USE IT!!!!

Here are some great recommendations for this product!

“If you own MAC brushes or really just any brushes you must get this brush cleanser. I use it once a week and mix a little with some warm water in a glass and let my brushes soak for about 5 minutes and then rinse them off and lay flat to dry. It keeps my brushes in great shape and looking brand new!

“I used to wash my brushes with baby shampoo or natural hand soap. I’m so glad I gave this brush cleanser a shot. This brush cleanser is so light and lathers really well. It says it helps shorten drying time, and I have experienced it!”

“My routine is rinsing my brush under warm water, squeeze a few drops of this pink cleanser and start sweeping my brush. I couldn’t believe how soapy it got. It cleanse my brushes really well and it dries very quickly. My brushes seems to last longer, so soft and ready for application.”
“I was washing my brushes with some baby shampoo, but that was not cutting it. Left too much residue and just did not rinse my MAC ,  Sigma, Be, and sheer cover brushes clean. So once my local MAC restocked this (after being out of stock), I made the splurge. It is definitely worth it. It does clean the brushes to nearly new, and disinfects them. I only use my brushes on myself, but I am acne prone, so it is good to know that my brushes are washed clean. Two ways I use this: deep clean (once weekly) and spot cleaning (after each use).  To deep clean I dampen my brushes, always tilting so the brush head is facing down (never letting water seep into the ferrule). Then I take a small amount of cleaner and swirl my brush into it and work up a lather. Lastly, I rinse the brush clean and gently squeeze out the excess water. Spot cleaning: dampen a small portion (a couple drops will do) of a paper towel or Kleenex, and swirl the recently used (not dampened) brush gently into the towel.  Good buy, will be repurchasing for life.”
