How often do you clean your makeup brushes?

It has been a golden rule to ALWAYS wash your brushes.

WHY? FOR WHAT?

Simply because your make-up’s best friend collect dust, dirt and bacteria.

AND YOU DON’T WANT ANY OF THESE TRANSFERRED ON YOUR FACE RIGHT?

So if you neglect these babies some serious bath.. you know what happens next. Hello, BREAKOUT!

If you don’t know how to clean yours, follow these uber simple steps!

Dirty brushes here and there.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

>Baby shampoo (I use Johnson and Johnson’s, I’m in love with the smell of it.)

>Tissue/Towel

>Olive oil ( This should only be used for brushes that are heavily deposited with make-up!)

>And of course, WATER!!!

I’ll demonstrate with the help of  my Samantha Chapman’s tapered blush brush! OH LOVE!

First Step:

Run the bristles of your brush under warm water.

Remember, the temperature of the water only has to be 40 degrees to kill germs.

(Make sure not to wet the ferrule and the long handle!)

Second Step:

Pour a generous amount of the baby shampoo on the bristles

Third Step:

Using the palm of your hand, gently swirl it. (You don’t want to alter the shape of your brush.)


Check out how much product are embedded in my brush. (EWWW, I KNOW!)

Fourth Step:

Splash and rinse out with water.

You want to make sure to remove all the excess shampoo out of the brush.

Feel it! HAHAHAHAHAHA

Fifth Step:

Don’t squeeze out the brushes dry, instead blot it using a tissue or a towel!

YAHOO!

DRYING TIME! 🙂

So fast and easy riiiiight!?

If you are in a hurry or something, you can also use brush cleaners available in the market!

I bought mine from Sephora Sg.

However, I don’t recommend it  because  it is quite pricey in the long run.

Plus it doesn’t thoroughly remove all the make-up in there.

So yeah, grab your brushes and bathe them today!
