So let's get started!

How to Clean Makeup Brushes in 5 Easy Steps

1) Rinse your makeup brushes with warm water.

Before you start cleaning your makeup brushes, the first step is to rinse them off with warm water. This will help loosen any debris and residue that is left on the brushes. To do this, simply hold the brush under running water and gently swirl the bristles around. Make sure that the water isn't too hot, as this could damage the bristles of your makeup brushes. By rinsing the brushes, you are helping to remove makeup, dirt, and oil which has accumulated over time. Not only will this improve the cleanliness of your beauty brushes, but it will also help prevent bacteria growth. Once you have finished rinsing your makeup brushes, you can move onto the next step of cleaning them. 

The best way to clean makeup brushes is by using a brush cleaner or makeup remover solution. There are several products available specifically designed for this purpose. Start by pouring a small amount of solution into a bowl or cup. Dip the makeup brush into the solution and use circular motions to work the cleaner into the bristles. Be sure to thoroughly cover all areas of the makeup brush so that all of the makeup is removed. After a few minutes, rinse the makeup brush with lukewarm water until all traces of the cleaner or remover are gone.

2) Pour some baby shampoo into a bowl.

When cleaning your makeup brushes, you want to use a gentle shampoo that won't irritate your skin. Baby shampoo is perfect for this job! It's a great cleanser that is gentle enough to use on the delicate bristles of your makeup brushes. To start, pour some baby shampoo into a bowl. Once you have the right amount of shampoo in the bowl, it's time to start cleaning your brushes. The shampoo should be enough to coat the bristles and break down any build-up of make-up, dirt, and oils. Swirl your brush around in the bowl until it's fully coated with shampoo, then leave it to soak for a few minutes before rinsing. 

With this simple step, you'll be well on your way to clean makeup brushes that are sure to last! Next, rinse your brush under lukewarm water, making sure to thoroughly rinse off all the remaining shampoo. Be careful not to submerge the handle of the makeup brush too far into the water – doing so could cause water damage to the handle of your makeup brush. After rinsing off the shampoo, squeeze out any excess water from the bristles and place the makeup brush onto a dry towel. Gently roll the makeup brush against the towel to help absorb the remaining water, reshaping the bristles as you go. Finally, lay your makeup brush flat onto the towel and allow it to dry overnight. Now that you know how to properly clean your makeup brushes, you can easily keep them looking and feeling like new!

3) swirl the brush around in the baby shampoo.

When cleaning your makeup brushes, the next step is to pour some baby shampoo into a bowl and swirl the brush around in it. This will help to break down the makeup and remove any dirt or oil that has built up on the brush. Swirling the brush around in the shampoo helps to evenly distribute the shampoo throughout the bristles, ensuring that the makeup brush is thoroughly cleaned. When swirling your makeup brush in the baby shampoo, make sure to go in circles and cover the entire surface of the bristles. This will help to effectively remove any remaining traces of make-up from the brush. Cleaning your makeup brushes on a regular basis is key to achieving a flawless look and maintaining healthy skin. With a little bit of time and effort, you can keep your makeup brushes clean and ready for use! 

After swirling the brush around in the baby shampoo, take a clean cloth and rinse off the makeup brush under warm running water. To ensure that all of the makeup and dirt is removed from the bristles, repeat this process until the water runs clear when rinsed off. Once you are satisfied that the makeup brush is completely free of makeup, lay it out flat on a towel to dry. Letting your makeup brushes air dry after each use can help extend their life and maintain their original shape. To further extend their life and make sure they remain as clean as possible, be sure to deep clean your makeup brushes at least once a month using the same steps outlined above. Following these steps will ensure that your makeup brushes are always free of makeup and bacteria, allowing you to create perfect makeup looks with ease!

4) Rinse the brush off with warm water.

Once you’ve gone through the steps of washing and cleansing your makeup brushes, it’s important to properly rinse them off. Using warm water, rinse the bristles thoroughly to ensure that all of the soap and dirt is washed away, leaving your brushes perfectly clean and free from any residue. This step is especially important in order to keep your makeup brushes free from bacteria and maintain their beauty, allowing them to last longer and continue creating beautiful looks with CLEAN MAKEUP. After rinsing off your MAKEUP BRUSHES, shake the excess water off and let them dry before using them again. It’s best to store them horizontally so they can air dry naturally while keeping the shape of the brush intact. To further prevent bacterial growth, use a brush cleaner spray every week or so on the bristles and wipe down any metal or wooden parts with an antibacterial cloth or paper towel. 

This will help keep your makeup brushes smelling fresh while maintaining a proper level of hygiene. Additionally, don’t forget to replace makeup sponges every month or two to make sure you are always applying CLEAN MAKEUP on your skin. Lastly, make sure to store your makeup brushes properly in a cool area away from direct sunlight as this can easily deteriorate the quality of your makeup tools. Taking these extra steps will help extend the life of your makeup brushes and allow for consistent use of CLEAN MAKEUP products for many years to come!

5) Repeat steps 2-4 until the water runs clear.

Once you’ve rinsed your makeup brushes with warm water, pour a few drops of baby shampoo into a bowl. Then swirl the brush around in the shampoo and rinse it off with warm water. Continue this process of swiping the brush in the shampoo and rinsing it off until the water runs clear. This means that all of the makeup residue has been washed off of the brush and it is now clean. Clean makeup brushes are essential for achieving a flawless makeup application, so make sure you’re cleaning your brushes regularly. Doing so not only extends the life of the makeup brushes but also helps prevent bacteria buildup that could potentially cause skin irritation or acne breakouts. To get started, set aside some time each week to deep-clean your makeup brushes. 

Make sure you have all the supplies you need: makeup brush cleanser (or baby shampoo if you don't have any on hand), a container filled with lukewarm water, and an absorbent towel or paper towel. Submerge each brush in lukewarm water mixed with cleanser or shampoo until completely saturated. Swirl each brush gently and massage the bristles thoroughly to remove any dirt or makeup product buildup. Rinse each brush thoroughly under lukewarm running water, making sure no makeup remains on the bristles. Finally, lay each brush flat on an absorbent towel to dry overnight before using them again!
