Makeup Wednesday: How To Clean Make-Up Brushes

Hey beauties hope your week is going great, here is our makeup tip for this week.

Makeup Brushes  are the perfect way to achieve that sought after professional finish to your beauty routine. Your make-up is only as good as the brushes you're using, and when it comes to choosing the perfect set of make-up  brushes. While they all do the same job, there's a lot of difference their bristles, their quality and ultimately the results they can give.

And as you have to use make-up  brushes every day, they are definitely worth investing in and also it is essential that one takes care of them too.

How often should you wash your make-up brushes?
It's important to wash your make-up brushes regularly as they harbour dirt and bacteria that can cause spots. I recommend washing them every week.

Cleaning make-up brushes can be done in two ways: you can use an instant brush cleanser for a quick cleanse, or if you want to give them a really thorough clean, wash them with shampoo and leave to dry overnight.

Make sure that you don't get any water on the handle or the ferrule of the brush (the ferrule is the part that holds the brush fibres to the handle) - this will damage the brush fibres and make your brush moult.

Pour some cleanser into a ramekin or petri dish and dip each brush gently into the solution.

Alternatively, put some mild shampoo or washing up liquid in the palm of your hand, and swirl the brush into it. Then rinse clean under running water. I like to give big powder brushes a quick condition after shampooing, to leave them really soft, but you don't need to do this for all your brushes.

Gently swirl the brush onto a clean tea towel or hand towel to wipe off excess water. Whilst the brush is damp, reshape it and place it to dry on the edge of a table.
