How to clean your Makeup Brushes

Cleaning makeup brushes can be quite a hassle, when was the last time you cleaned them? But it is necessary for them to remain in shape and also because they can harbor lots of dirt and bacteria. So frequent washing keeps them - and your face - clean and healthy. Below some tips and pointers on how to keep your makeup brushes clean.

1. Run the bristles of the makeup brush under warm running water.

2. Apply a small amount of dishwashing soap to bristles and work into a light lather.

3. Rinse bristles thoroughly under running water. You will notice that the water leaving the brush is tinted from old makeup.

4. Continue rinsing until no color leaves the brush.

5. Then just set the brushes on a table or counter and let the brush heads hang off the side and allow them to air dry.

Note: Use dishwashing soap because it's designed to pull grease from hair (or synthetic hair!!). Don't use shampoo or face wash because those kinds of products usually contain moisturizers that will coat the bristles.
