When was the last time you cleaned your makeup brushes? This is a common question that we ask our clients at Authentic Beauty and unfortunately, it has a very common answer, “Never.”
Most clients are unaware that their makeup brushes could be the secret culprit behind those occasional acne breakouts that seem to come out of nowhere. It’s true, your makeup brushes collect dead skin and oils that your skin produces every time you touch them to your face. Over time, these oils and dead skin can become a breeding ground for bad bacteria!
Here are the most common questions that we receive when the discussion of makeup brush cleaning starts. We’ve also provided simple answers along with services in our studio that can help!
How often should makeup brushes be cleaned?
Once a week for most brushes. Especially brushes that are used with creamy or liquid products like foundation or concealer.
How do you properly clean makeup brushes?
Gently wet only the hair of the brush and add a small amount of soap or shampoo to create a lather. Carefully rinse out the lather without getting the handle of the brush wet. Lay the brush to dry on a towel.
What type of soap should be used to clean brushes?
You can use your favorite shampoo or hand soap. You might have to break out the dish soap if you are using a lot of creamy foundation.
