Bonus Tip: Using a Makeup Brush Cleaner
If you want to make cleaning your makeup brushes even easier, you can use a makeup brush cleaner as your first step to clean brushes. They are specially formulated to breakdown and remove makeup and bacteria from brushes. Most cleaners are useful to 'spot' clean brushes that are not very dirty or as part of your cleaning routine.
Whilst they are useful, in my experience as with most things in life, they do have their limitations. They will not deep clean your brushes effectively enough to kill all bacteria everytime. It is more effective to have a number of steps to your cleaning process in order to ensure the best outcome.
Now you know the importantance of a cleaning routine for your makeup brushes and how to do it. Get cleaning and enjoy the benefits of clean brushes, like beautiful skin and flawless makeup application.
