Brush Care Routine, Tips & Tricks

Brush Care Routine, Tips & Tricks

Several times while having girl chats about makeup, I find that so many of my friends don't actually know that they need to clean their brushes, and if they do, many don't know that they have to deep clean them. Especially if using on a daily basis! 

In this blog post, I'll be taking you through my deep cleanse brush regime, with tips and tricks to help you through! Deep cleaning your brushes isn't as hard as it sounds - think of it as washing your hair. It should not be done every single day, but it is still a vital step.

For a rough guide, if you use your brushes heavily on a daily basis, you should wash them once a week/fortnightly. On the other hand, if you use your brushes lightly on a daily basis, you can stick to washing them once a month. 

I find myself washing my brushes fortnightly, when I can really feel the gunk that has collected in my brushes.

Before we start I'd like to leave you with a small tip - always wash your brushes before going to bed. This way, your brushes will be all nice and dry by the morning! Never wash your brushes before you do your makeup - it will never dry on time.

I hope you enjoy this easy peasy 5-step deep cleanse brush routine!

Now all you gotta do is let them towel dry overnight and voila! You're done.

My brush deep cleansing routine is that simple. All it takes is less than half an hour (depending on the amount of brushes you have - I have 15) so I strongly urge you to do it! Unclean brushes may cause acne outbreaks, which I'm sure you would want to avoid.

I hope this post has been useful to you! If you'd like to see more posts like this, feel free to drop me an email or tweet with suggestions on what I should do next! I would love to hear your ideas.
