Cleaning Make Up Brushes

One major part of your make up routine which can easily be forgotten is having clean make up brushes. The amount of bacteria, muck and the remainder of powders and foundations that build up in the bristles is ridiculous, and just think that you will be putting that all on your face every day.

It is important that you put some time aside one part of your day a week to wash your brushes, I have to admit that I do not do it as often as I should and I have begun to notice a huge difference in the way my base applies, it looks quite greasy and doesn't last as long throughout the day as it should.

The whole routine is very easy, all you need is some warm water, gohnson's baby shampoo as it is very delicate and not perfumes so you don't ruin the bristles. First you put some warm water on your hand and then in a circular motion wet the bristles in the palm of your hand, that way it does not get ridiculously wet but enough to clean them. Then take a little blob of the shampoo and I place it onto a sponge, but that is entirely up to you, quite briskly move it in circular motions so that the bristles do not become damaged. Wash out all of your shampoo and if it looks clean to you then place it on a towel and leave to dry. I usually clean mine on a night so they can dry the whole night and then you can reapply your make up the next morning.

Hope this was useful, I'd love to hear if you have any tips or tricks on cleaning your brushes.
