I felt the previous “How to | Clean brushes” post needed to be redone.The first one was all over the place and not pwetty enough for me.
Now to the steps…………………………….
Its very important to clean your makeup brushes regularly because it reduces the risk of infections and breakouts. The way I see it if you cannot wear dirty cloths why would you want to put dirty brushes on your face #simples.
STEP #1 Pour a small amount of antibacterial washing liquid & surgical spirit into a disposable cup. Dilute with warm water from the tap.
STEP #2 Soak the brushes in the solution for about a minute. After a couple of seconds swirl the brushes in the cup (this helps the soap get in between the bristles).
STEP #3 Almost immediately you will notice the solution turn brown. After soaking check to see if the brushes are clean enough. With white bristle brushes, you might need to soak them for slightly longer or massage them gently using the tips of your fingers.
STEP #4 Repeat step #1/2 if your OTT (over the top) like me.
STEP#5 Rinse properly with warm water. Point the brush bristles downwards, this way water will not get into the brush funnel and destroy it.
STEP #6 To maintain the original shape of the brushes, I wrap them in tissue. This makes dry time longer but its worth it.
STEP#7 Dry the brushes over night (I usually wash my brushes at night) but do what makes you happy.
That’s all folks
