Cleanup your makeup tools

1) It is important to wash your brushes every two weeks or so. Anything that is moist (let’s say a lip brush) should be washed a little more regularly.

2) Use a gentle shampoo (baby shampoo is good) with a glug of dettol for your first wash, in warm water. I don’t like to use the original dettol because I find the smell awful, but they come in a variety of scents now. Allow to stand for 15 minutes.

 3) Rinse and wash again but this time without the dettol. Gently massage the brushes with your fingers and work them on your plams. Don’t be rough but do make sure to get to the bases of the brush and get out product trapped there. Rinse again with warm water.
4) Make a conditioner and warm water mixture and submerge the brushes for 5 minutes.
5) Rinse with warm water but end with a cold water rinse.


6) Squeeze out the excess moisture from the brushes with your fingers and through this bring the burshes in to the shape you would like them to be once they dry.

7) Rest your brushes on a towel but make sure the brush heads are touching nothing so that they dry from all directions, otherwise your brushes will grow fungus. So rest them on a table covered with a towel, for example, with the handles on the surface but the brush heads off the edge of the table.


8) Wash your brushes in the day so that they can dry in natural sunlight.

9) Or you can even use a Brush Cleaner Sprays that are easily available in markets. So make sure that you cleaning, sanitizing and properly drying them regularly.


10) Once dry, go for it!
