How to wash your make-up brushes


Follow these easy steps to wash your brushes:

·       Dip the bristles in lukewarm water.

·       Put liquid soap or make-up brush cleanser onto the palm of your hand.

·       Swirl the damp bristles around the soap until fully coated.  

·       Rinse the brushes under running lukewarm water until they are free of all make-up residue and the water runs clear.

·       Gently squeeze excess water using a clean towel or kitchen paper towels.

·       Allow the brushes to dry on a flat surface, preferably with the bristles hanging over the edge.

Tips to keep your brushes cleaner for longer:

.  Keep water away from the area where the bristle meets the stem of the brush to avoid wearing off the glue.

. A quicker way to get clean make-up brushes is to use alcohol solution. You can find this at all good beauty stores and pharmacies.
