Cleaning your makeup brushes is known to be such a tedious task and I know a lot of you would avoid doing it and putting it of as long as you can!
There are so many reasons why you need to wash your makeup brushes regularly:
- Dirty brushes compromise your makeup application.
- They contain bacteria, oils and dead skin cells that when transferred on our face can cause us breakouts- Eww!
- Not looking after your brushes will shorten their life span!
You should deep clean your brushes at least once every 2 weeks and spot clean them regularly.
I wash my brushes with;
- Warm water
- Unscented bar of soap
- Sigma Spa Express Brush Cleaning Glove
If you have any brushes which are difficult to clean as there is a lot of build up use a little bit of olive oil to break down the product first.
I rinse all my brushes under warm water, I very gently rub them on the bar of soap and then on the Sigma cleaning glove until it lathers. I rinse with water and continue a second time if needed. I then squeeze a little shampoo on the Sigma glove and swirl my brush into the product – I do this to make the brushes soft and to clean off anything missed from the soap. I rinse my brushes with warm water again and then leave them to dry overnight.
The SIGMA SPA EXPRESS BRUSH CLEANING GLOVE is new to my brush cleaning routine but I am so happy its in my life! It makes cleaning my brushes a lot quicker and easier. You are able to clean both eyes and face brushes with the glove as it has different textures and its also travel friendly so perfect for mobile MUA’s.
When I just want to do a quick spot clean of my brushes I use Models Prefer brush cleaner – This stuff is amazing to spot clean! I just spray some on to my Sigma Cleaning glove or a cotton pad and swirl my brush in the product. The brushes are cleaned perfectly and dry within minutes ready to use again. The only downside of the product is it does have quite an overwhelming scent. Costing only $12.99 its is very affordable, I picked mine up from Priceline.
