Its a good practice to wash your makeup brushes frequently (ahem) and there is also a lot to learn out there from  makeup artists who make a living out of using them. in as much as there are several how-to’s when it comes to cleaning and caring for brushes, below is a list to how to clean your makeup brushes, some of these methods are used by experts as well.

For daily cleaning try out.

Bobbi Brown Brush Cleaning Spray, £16. | Clinique Makeup Brush Cleanser (£14). | BareMinerals Quick Change Brush Cleaner (£10)

Estée Lauder Makeup Brush Cleanser (£12)

For a  deep clean every 1–2 weeks  which will depend on the number of times the brushes are used.   try out


Fairy Platinum Washing Up Liquid (£2)  | Bobbi Brown Conditioning Brush Cleanser (£12). | Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Gel (£8)

Brush Cleansing Palette (£13) | BareMinerals Well-Cared for Brush Conditioning Shampoo (£10)

Brushes should be left to soak for about 5 minutes after which use a dark towel to clean brushes in-between second soak. the towel is a good idea, because it buffs out any dirt. alternately use an exfoliating mitt or a textured flannel, as they lather up the cleanser and help scrub brushes properly.

-Rinse brushes and lay flat  with the bristle facing down to dry, alternatively, use a brush rack.

Sigma Dry N Shape Brush Tower Eyes (£30)

In as much as people use  different techniques when cleaning makeup brushes, one major key to maintaining makeup brushes is how you dry your brushes, preferably lay it flat or  bristles facing upside down, as letting water get to the ferrule(the bit where the bristles are bonded together), will ruin the brushes as water dissolves the glue and fibre becomes unstuck.
