Makeup brushes are an important investment for every woman and rightly so. Gone are the days when applying foundation meant blending it with your fingers until it matched your correct skin tone. Now there is a plethora of brushes available in the markets which do the exact same job in a much better and hygienic fashion. However, like any other priced possession (yes, they are expensive), owning makeup brushes comes with its own set of responsibilities. Here’s why?
Why is it important to clean makeup brushes?
We are not saying that you are dirty but makeup brushes have build-ups of product, bacteria, dead skin cells, oil and residue. It’s important that you clean them on a regular basis before using them on your skin to avoid breakouts and infections. Besides, you don’t want to transfer all the bacteria every time you dip your brush into your favourite pot of concealer.
How often should one clean makeup brushes?
If you use makeup brushes on a regular basis then we suggest cleaning them twice every week. If you use them less often then it’s suggested you clean them once every two weeks. Please note that the list of brushes to be cleaned includes your gel eyeliner and lip liner brushes too.
