How to Clean Your Makeup Brushes

Skincare includes your makeup brushes.  They are one of the things you touch to your skin to make it look better.

A variety of good quality brushes makes getting good coverage and color easy.

The pink one in this photo is a child’s toothbrush.  It was my first ‘real’, non-baby toothbrush.  Even though I’m in my late forties, I continue to use it daily, just not for my teeth!  It’s the best brush or comb I’ve found to de-clump mascara and to shape my brows.

Keep your skin healthy and keep your makeup looking pretty by keeping your brushes clean.

Clean brushes as often as you can.  Aim for at least once every two weeks.  If time gets away on you, that’s okay.  We’re all super busy and there are a dozen things demanding our attention at any moment.  Just make a point of cleaning your brushes as often as possible.

If you don’t have a dedicated makeup brush cleanser, use your facial cleanser or your shampoo.  Wash, rinse, and repeat, until cold water runs clear.  This will mean that you’ve gotten all the makeup, skin oil, and dead skin cells off as well as the cleanser itself.

Squeeze water out with a clean towel and stand up brushes to air dry.  The whole process is pretty simple and only takes a few minutes.

So there you have it:  some “Therapie” for your makeup brushes.  ~Cherise
