If you want your skin to look flawless you gotta do this! DIRTY brushes = A dirty looking unpolished face.
How-to Care for & Clean Makeup Brushes Oils from skin and dust adhere to brushes and can cause much dreaded breakouts. It is important to clean your brushes regularly.
Quick Dry Method: Dampen a section of a paper towel with a Fast Drying Brush Cleaner and wipe brush from side to side. As the towel gets dirty, dampen another section and repeat. Not only will this clean the brushes, but the Brush Cleaner evaporates quickly for a clean brush that’s ready to go!
Shampoo & Conditioner: You can use a mild baby shampoo or an liquid soap. Rinse brush head gently under lukewarm water, with the brushes at a 45 degree angle pointing down, using fingers to massage Shampoo/Soap to hair. Apply in the direction of the hair from ferrule towards top. (Ferrule: The metal part of the brush between the hair and handle). Rinse gently under running water, thoroughly.
If you’d like, follow as above with conditioner. Gently reshape the head of the brush and lay flat over the edge of a table or counter so that the bristles are open to the air on all sides. Allow to completely dry for a few hours and then simply hand fluff back to shape.
****Be careful not to let any cleaner or water run inside the ferrule (the metal part of the brush between the hair and handle). This can weaken the glue used to hold the hair and cause shedding problems or even loosen the handles.
Always lay brushes flat to dry. Do not use a blow dryer – this will cause the hair to frizz!
With proper care, a quality (Not dollar store) brushes can be enjoyed for years.
But remember that synthetic brushes don’t last as long as sable and other hairs.
