Importance of cleaning brushes

How and why should we clean our brushes?

Washing our makeup brushes should be a regular part of our beauty routine. According to dermatologists we should be cleaning our brushes on a weekly basis – this stops the build up of bacteria and by doing so we are reducing the risk of breakouts!

Brushes are constantly used on our faces, so it is important to make sure they are clean for hygienic issues as well as for the best makeup application. We also know brushes aren’t the most affordable, so it is important to learn how to wash brushes properly to make sure you’re protecting your investment.

Here are some tips and tricks on how to clean brushes!

  • Here’s a secret – good old fairy liquid works as a brush cleanser, mix it with lukewarm water to create your solution
  • Use our Silicone Brush pad for that extra deep clean! Ooh yeah! Begin swirling the brush on the pad.
  • Make sure not to get the ferrule (holds the bristles together) wet as it loosens the glue holding the bristles! So hold the brush downwards
  • Dry your brushes flat on a towel

Easy peasy!
