Once And For All, This Is How To Enure Your Makeup Brushes Are Clean & Germ Free #SHEfindsSolutions

Makeup brushes can be a breeding ground for  germs, oils and bacteria. Not only is this just totally unsanitary, but it can cause nasty breakout. Who wants that?!

If you want to ensure your makeup brushes are truly clean and germ free, follow these steps:

1. Wash them regularly. Get into the habit of cleaning your makeup brushes with shampoo (like SigMagic Brushampoo) at least 2-3 times a month. This will help remove old makeup and dirt. Just soap up the brush with some shampoo and rinse in warm water. If you want to be really thorough, invest in a Brush Cleaning Mat, which is gentle on your brushes, but will rid them of leftover makeup residue. Once your brushes are clean, let them dry laying fully flat before using them.

2. Use an anti-bacterial spray. In between washes, the best way to prevent germs from building up on your brushes is by utilizing an anti-bacterial spray or wipes to quickly cleanse your brushes every so often. This isn’t a deep clean like with shampoo, but it will prevent bacteria from forming until you get a chance to wash them.

3. Store them properly. Finally, make sure you store your brushes in a way that they won’t collect dust or dirt. Having them shoved at the bottom of your purse or makeup bag is a total no-no. Even keeping them out in the open will have your brushes prone to attracting dirt. Try to keep them in a covered case or sealed bag, especially when traveling!
