How to Clean Makeup Brushes

Properly cleaning and caring for your makeup brushes and sponges is one of the best ways to ensure a flawless application, extend the life of your tools, and prevent the buildup of bacteria, oil, and product residue that can lead to skin irritation and breakouts. How often you should clean your makeup brushes and sponges will ultimately depend on how often you use them, but here are a few simple guidelines to keep in mind:

● Clean makeup brushes that are used to apply liquid and cream foundation at least once a week.
● Clean makeup brushes that are used to apply powder makeup every other week.
● Clean makeup sponges that are used to apply liquid and cream foundation after every use.

Pay attention to signs of buildup or changes in the texture or performance of your brushes and sponges, as these can indicate that they need cleaning.

What to use to clean brushes and sponges

Chances are good, you already have a few things at home that you can use to wash your makeup brushes and sponges. Many people find that the mild soap or shampoo they use in their self-care routine effectively removes residue and bacteria while being gentle on bristles. Others swear by a combination of dish soap diluted with water and a drop of oil to banish buildup and nourish bristles. When in doubt, opt for a brush cleaner product formulated to clean and extend the life of your makeup tools.

How to properly dry brushes and sponges

Ensuring your tools are completely dry before storing them will help keep mold, mildew, and bacteria at bay.

After washing your makeup brushes, gently reshape the bristles to their original form and lay them flat to dry on a clean surface or towel. Avoid standing brushes upright to dry, as water can seep into the ferrule (the metal part that holds the bristles), loosening them over time.

After washing your sponges, gently wring out as much excess water as possible and place them on a clean surface or towel to dry. Avoid storing damp makeup brushes and sponges in airtight containers or makeup bags, as this can create a breeding ground for bacteria.

Much like drying your hair, properly drying your makeup brushes and sponges requires patience. It may take 30 minutes to a few hours for your tools to dry 100%. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time.

How to store brushes and sponges

Properly storing your makeup brushes and sponges is almost as important as how you care for them. Your meticulous washing and drying routine will be for naught if you toss your freshly cleansed tools into the depths of your makeup bag. Below are some of our top tips for storing your tools.

● Store brushes upright in a brush holder or cup to help prevent damage to the bristles and maintain their shape.
● Opt for a makeup case with individual compartments for each brush so they don’t become misshapen during your travels.
● Store sponges in a clean, dry area with plenty of ventilation.
● If you prefer to keep your makeup sponge contained, opt for a mesh pouch for air circulation.

Overall, the key is to store brushes and sponges in a clean, dry environment where they can air out and stay clean between uses.
