Makeup brushes are probably the most used tools that women use on a daily basis, so it makes sense that they get a lot of love in the cleaning department. After all, we use them to apply makeup on our faces each and every day and consequently this can harbour quite a bit of bacteria from the oils on our face as well as old makeup build up. It's imperative to keep your makeup brushes sanitized; here is a quick and easy guide on how to clean your makeup brushes.


What you will need:

  • A mild shampoo/hand soap
  • A sink
  • A drying cloth

Things to remember:

  • Many makeup brushes are expensive and made with hair, as such, you'll want to prolong their lifespan by cleaning them as gently as possible, and using the mildest cleanser you have.
  • Do not submerge your makeup brush under water. If water gets into the metal stem of the brush this could potentially cause the glue that is holding the wand and your bristles to break down.

How to wash:

While there really isn't any absolute correct way of washing your makeup brushes, it's important to do everything with precision and care.

  1. Hold your brush under running water
  2. Pour your mild shampoo into the palm of your hand and work the wet brush into the palm of your hands; spiralling it around to make sure the mild shampoo is being distributed evenly
  3. Wash off the mild shampoo by placing the brush under running water again. Do this until the water starts to run clear.
  4. Gently blot the water off using a dry cloth and leave it on the edge of your sink to dry.
