How Often Should you Wash your Makeup Brushes?

Probably not often enough, but we’re not judging, we are in the same boat. It seems to be such a difficult task, we mean it’s not hard washing brushes but it’s more about finding the right time. If it’s done in the morning then we are rushing after putting our makeup on and trying to get the day going. After work? Heck no, the couch and TV (or the kids) are calling our name. On the weekend? Well, if it’s done in the morning then what do we do when we need a touch up before dinner?! We can’t do our makeup with wet brushes!

Sounds so complicated but in all reality – it needs to be done. It is so important to remove dirt, clumps of makeup and whatever else might be between those tiny bristles. Remember that these babies are going on our faces every day! And though our faces are probably clean majority of the time we are use them, there are definitely times when we do a touch up and the dirt from that day just went from our face to our makeup brush and back to our clean face the next morning…Gross!

Strive (longshot) but strive to clean them once a week. This will help keep the brushes clean and free of makeup clumps too. And it doesn’t need to be complicated either! We use our daily face wash to rinse off the brushes since our skin is already used to using this product. Lay them out on a towel to dry and voila! Clean brushes, clean skin!
