Look, none of us are perfect. And sometimes when I look at the state of my makeup brushes I am acutely reminded of this.
However, finding the time to actually clean your makeup brushes at home is pretty important if you’re spending a lot of money on skin care, or even if you just want your makeup to perform properly.
With the right products cleaning synthetic makeup brushes can be a quick and relatively painless experience.
So, if you want to know what you can use to clean makeup brushes and how often you should wash your foundation brush, keep reading this easy to follow guide to washing your makeup brushes (the right way).
How often should I clean my makeup brushes?
From my perspective, that’s really down to how often you use your brushes, and what you are using them for.
For instance, if you use the same brush for different products you might need to clean your brushes quickly in between uses.
If you’re using a wet product that stays on your brush you might want to clean that fairly regularly to avoid buildup.
However, if it's a brush that’s going into the same powder over and over again you can probably get away with cleaning it weekly.
And remember there is a difference between cleaning your brushes (with a brush sanitiser) and actually washing your brushes (we recommend doing this monthly).
