November 05, 2020 4 min read

If you wear makeup, you need to know how to clean makeup brushes. If you don't clean your make up brushes, you'll either wind up spoiling them and throwing them away, or they will mess up your clean, fresh look by changing the colours of your makeup. If you're not sure how to clean makeup brushes, don't worry; it's simple. The main thing is using the right type of cleaner for the kind of cosmetic brush you have. It's also most important to clean your makeup brushes frequently, so that there's very little build up on them.

Applying your make up correctly is at least as important as the quality of the makeup itself. Professional makeup artists take a lot of time smoothing, blending and brushing creams and powders into their clients' soon flawless faces. Great brushes help make perfect makeup possible.

The Importance of Properly Cleaning Your Makeup Brushes

Properly cleaning your makeup brushes will save you time, money and even your face! You will save time because clean makeup brushes make application easier, so that loose powder goes where you want it instead of clinging to an oily brush. You won't have to makeup as often because your makeup will be fresh - not contaminated with skin oils and old, oxidized colours. You'll save money by cleaning your makeup brushes because they will last longer, so you won't have to buy new ones. And you can save your face from breakouts associated with bacterial and oil build up on grimy old brushes. Five minutes a week, a little sudsy water, and your makeup brushes will stay fresh and new much longer. See a selection of inexpensive brush cleaner that will renew dirty cosmetics brushes.

Properly Cleaning Your Cosmetic Brushes Will Make Them Last Longer
Besides letting your brushes last longer (very important if you're going to buy more expensive, smoother brushes), if you know how to clean your make up brushes, you can minimize skin problems such as breakouts from accumulated oils or eye infections from mascara brushes. Hygiene is one reason that experts say never to share your makeup with a friend: you can transmit bacteria on the applicators. Cold sores, acne, rashes and staph germs can move easily from one makeup brush to another, so never borrow someone else's brush or powder puff. In fact, for people who apply makeup using their fingers, it's not even a good idea to wipe your fingers across someone else's blusher or eye shadow, because you're picking up bacteria from their fingers and skin.

But When it comes to beauty, most of us obsess about the software-the powders, the gels, and the shades we need to look fabulous. But investing in the hardware-from styling irons to nail files-is just as important to achieving the perfect look. After all, that hot summer eye shadow won't sizzle if you don't apply it with the right brush.

For flawless looks, beauty professionals take care to ensure that they have the highest-quality tools at their disposal-and so should you. Here are the six tools you need to get the job done right:

  • Flat iron.

You don't need to be a pro to get expert results with a Flat Iron. This versatile option gives you the curls, flips, or straight locks you want, without frizz or static. Its Nano Silver technology also zaps bacteria, leaving both the flat iron and your hair sterilized and shiny-clean.

  • Hair dryer.

The best haircut of your life will still fall flat without the right blow dryer. Get the volume you need with a regular Hair Dryer, which works twice as fast as normal dryers thanks to negative ions and far infrared technology.

Or if you want you can use eyelash extension applicators to make the eyelash luck more luscious and defined. Another way to enhance the look of your eyelash would be to use mascara obviously, although it is recommended that you use disposable mascara wands to pamper it up.
