How To REALLY Clean Your Makeup Brushes – This is a post that I’ve been meaning to write up for a while, for those of you who know me will know that I’m a little bit of a clean-freak! I like to keep everything tidy, organised and of course – clean!
It baffles me when I hear people say that they don’t wash their makeup brushes for weeks, for me it’s just as important as your cleansing your face and ideally we should be cleaning our make-up brushes daily too!
If we can’t manage to clean our brushes daily then PLEASE try and aim to clean your make-up brushes at least twice a week – it really is an important part of your ‘beauty regime’ and shouldn’t be overlooked.
The Benefits of Cleaning Your Make-Up Brushes
– Reduces Breakouts
– Stops Bacteria From Spreading
– Skin Becomes Less Oily
Sadly a lot of skin problems and breakouts tend to start when we don’t look after our make-up brushes correctly and by simply washing them more often can reduce breakouts and problems!
Think about it – when you don’t wash your makeup brushes, what happens?
All of the oil from your skin and make-up starts to collect onto the bristles of your make-up brushes and over time becomes bacteria. This is then transferred onto your face and makeup products.
Bacteria clogs your pores and starts to cause breakouts meaning you’ll need more make-up to conceal however what you’re actually doing is applying more bacteria to your skin.
It really is a horrible circle that can easily be avoided! 🙂
How To REALLY Clean Your Make-up Brushes
OK, so below I’ve also filmed a little video for you on how to REALLY clean your makeup brushes and one of the things you might notice is that I ‘pre-cleanse’ my make-up brushes before actually washing them hahaha!
The reason I pre-clean my make-up brushes is because all the oil, makeup and dirt starts to breakdown meaning that when you actually clean your brushes its a lot quicker than normal.
I normally use fairy washing liquid or a deep-cleansing shampoo for the pre-clean and then use a bit more when washing them in the sink, followed by a soak in warm water & conditioner and then another rinse to ensure everything has been removed!!
I told you I’m a clean-freak! 😉
Here is the little video I mentioned above! Enjoy 🙂
