Pretty Quick: Clean Your Makeup Brushes

7 Mar

Makeup Brushes

Oh, makeup brushes. I use you everyday, but often neglect you when it comes to the washing department.

I’ll be the first to admit I’m a little lax in keeping my brushes as clean as I should. But unclean brushes can be a breeding ground for bacteria, and can spread that bacteria to your face.


Here’s how to show them some love:

  • Run each brush under warm water, gently loosening any leftover makeup from the bristles.
  • Squeeze a little shampoo in your hand and swirl the brush around in it, making sure you get in-between all the bristles.
  • Thoroughly rinse the brush out until the water runs clear.
  • Fluff the bristles and lay to dry on a clean towel overnight.
  • In the morning, fluff the bristles out a bit and you’re done!

You really will feel a difference after washing your brushes – it’s like having new tools. Repeat the process about once a week to keep your makeup brushes in tip-top shape.
