Cleaning your makeup brushes must be a regular habit. If you are the only one that is using your little magic tools you can wash them every 10-20 days. From the time that you apply your makeup with the brushes, you are sharing some bacteria with your brushes. The next time the bacteria will be multiplied, and so on… This will cause you in the best case irritation or breakouts or acne or even all of them. That’s why is mandatory for your skin to deep cleaning your brushes regularly. When you will clean your makeup brushes you are cleaning also the eye shadows etc from the previous uses so your products will work better; If you are suffering from breakouts and acne, please clean your brushes every 5 days (max).
Fill, in a medium bowl, 1/3 with lukewarm water, 1 – 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and 1 tablespoon of dishwasher liquid or shampoo. Soak your brushes for 2-3 minutes, then take one by one and start swirling them on a rough; area or on your palm under the running water (preferably lukewarm). If you have any stubborn dirt, repeat the whole method with a clean lukewarm mixture and then squeeze out excess product.
This method will leave your brushes amazingly soft and deep clean like brand new!
