Wash Makeup Brushes

How often do you wash your makeup brushes? Once a week is recommended. I am lucky if I do every two weeks. Ok, make that once a month…

So this is a kick in our or my butt reminder to get in the habit of washing those makeup brushes. I think one of my excuses is the fact that I apply my makeup in my bedroom and not in the bathroom. Where do you apply your makeup? I am also working on a turning a desk into a vanity for spring cleaning too.

For Springtime lets start spring cleaning and getting into some nice organized healthy beauty habits…

Baby your Makeup Brushes with Baby Shampoo!

Cleaning your makeup brushes and sponges are an important step to a perfectly made up face!

You can buy a special makeup brush cleanser or just use shampoo! Shampoo works just as well as the special makeup brush cleansers. You can also use baby shampoo or those 2 in 1 baby shampoos to make your brushes a little softer. If shampoo works on your hair then it will work great on your makeup brushes too!

Buying every kind of different makup brush for every different little makeup application is really not necessary either! I think just a foundation/powder brush, blush brush, and a contour and angled eyeshadow brush is enough!

I use powder foundation and I use a foundation brush. A brush works way better than those sponges that come with the compact! Applying your powder foundation is so much easier and it goes on evenly. Using a soft brush feels so much nicer on your face too!

Try to wash your brushes once a week! Not cleaning your brushing will harbor bacteria and oils, which will cause breakouts. The oils on the brush that come from your skin will also oxidize your makeup making it turn orange… Clean brushes will grab a hold of makeup and deposit makeup on your face evenly.

Gently clean your brushes, don’t be rough or you may pull out hairs. Lay your brushes flat down without letting the wet bristles touch anything if possible. Laying the bristles over the sink works. If you stand them on end the handles or bristles may break. Washing your brushes weekly will save you money too, because they will last you for years and years!

Happy Weekend Everyone!
