VIDEO: How to Clean Makeup Brushes

When is the last time you cleaned your makeup brushes? Don’t worry, we won’t judge! Ideally, you should be cleaning your makeup brushes at least once a month or when you notice any visible makeup residue.

Makeup brushes can be a breeding ground for bacteria if they are not cleaned regularly because they trap dead skin cells, dirt, and oil from your face as well as residual makeup. Additionally, be sure you are replacing your powder makeup once a year to avoid using expired products that can cause skin irritation.

You may have the most perfectly organized makeup and makeup tools, but if your brushes are not clean, it’s time to follow these steps to maintain your makeup brushes.

How To Clean Your Makeup Brushes:

Step One: Pour warm water into two small bowls.

Step Two: Squeeze a generous amount of baby shampoo into one of the bowls.

Step Three: Swirl the makeup brush in the bowl with baby shampoo, and then the one with just water to rinse. Repeat a few times until you no longer see makeup residue coming off the brush.

Step Four: Place on a clean towel to dry.
