Lynnette Joselly: How To Clean Your Makeup Brushes

How To Clean Your Makeup Brushes

A lot of you refuse to use your fingers to apply makeup (including me), just because it can add bacteria and clog your pores when your hands aren't super clean. However, when was the last time you cleaned your makeup brushes? Using dirty brushes is worse than using your fingers because the brushes have collected up so much bacteria from coming in contact with your skin and the different oils and shadows. Especially, for makeup artists who use these brushes on different clients, meaning you are transferring germs... ewww!!!

Lucky for you, LJ is here to help you clean your makeup brushes and maintain their softness. The buildup has your brushes hard and scratchy most likely leaving streak marks on your face. No bueno! This is why is cleaning your brushes on a regular basis is very important. Oh and the best time to wash them is before you go to sleep, that way you can let them air dry over night and have them ready to use the next day.

To begin with you are going to need:
    Olive Oil
    Rubbing Alcohol
Use the soap and sponge to lather the brushes up nicely and then rinse them with lukewarm water. Avoid getting the handle wet because you don't want to damage that material. You can use a paper towel and rubbing alcohol to clean the handles. For the brushes that have a lot of build up, such as your concealer brush, use the olive oil to help break down the makeup. Make sure you rinse the brushes completely, if not, they will dry hard. Lay your clean brushes flat on a towel and allow to dry. And there you have it, say hello to germ free brushes!
