How to clean the brush, I think this is a problem that everyone is very concerned about, especially for people who are not familiar with makeup. Therefore, we will provide you with some suggestions and tips on cleaning and maintaining makeup brushes. I hope to help you.
We mainly answer three questions to clean the makeup brush.
1. When do you clean makeup brushes?
Since the makeup brush is in direct contact with our face, we must ensure its cleanliness. A makeup brush that has not been cleaned will carry many bacteria, which will cause clogging of our pores and cause a series of skin problems. Therefore, it is essential to clean the makeup brush in time.
The newly purchased makeup brush can be washed directly with pure water or natural water. If there is a slight smell, you can use detergent or shampoo to clean it, which has a disinfecting and sterilizing effect. Generally, newly purchased makeup brushes may contain dust and other small substances. Therefore, it is best to rinse with water before use.（Maybe you can try our vegan fibre makeup brush; we use high-tech fibre manufacturing technology, not only the bristles are completely free of animals and vegans, but also their surfaces are specially designed to be sterile, which can effectively prevent the landing of bacteria. It also avoids the smell of the new set of brushes, which is an excellent choice for your makeup.）
The material of each brush is different, so the cleaning frequency is also different. But no matter what kind of makeup brush is used, please try to clean it with cold water when washing for the first time. If you use hot water for cleaning, due to the principles of thermal expansion and severe contraction, hot water will deform and remove hair from the makeup brush, thus affecting the quality of the makeup brush.
For the fibre material makeup brush, there are no hair scales, the powder grasping power is weak, and the product will not be absorbed too much. It is more suitable for wet products such as liquid foundation, lip gloss, blush cream, and concealer, so it is best to clean it once a week Because the fibre makeup brush is suitable for wet cosmetics, it is easy to leave impurities. If it is not cleaned for a long time, it is easy to damage the skin. Besides, the makeup brush made of fibre has excellent elasticity and is not easy to damage. Even if it is washed frequently, it will not harm the makeup brush. So cleaning the fibre makeup brush once a week is a good cleaning cycle.
Natural hair makeup brushes are best for dry cleaning. If it is washed with water, cleaning cycle should not be too high, about once a month. The makeup brush made of Natural hair is relatively soft and has a durable powder catching ability. It is suitable for dry powder products such as loose powder, eye shadow, blush, etc., so there will not be many residues, So you can use fresh powder to apply directly to makeup brush for dry cleaning，because washing with water too often will cause the bristles of the makeup brush to deform or even fall, so the best cleaning cycle for Natural hair makeup brushes is once a month.
2. How to wash makeup brushes at home
The quality of the makeup brush will affect the delicateness and durability of the makeup. Therefore, cleaning and maintaining makeup brushes is as important as choosing a brush.
First of all, this is our daily makeup brush maintenance.
After each use, prepare a clean paper towel and brush the makeup brush back and forth on the paper towel until the brush has no makeup colour, which can reduce makeup residue.
A: Wash with warm water
Prepare clean, warm water, 10 cents of olive oil and mild soap, sanitary towels or paper towels. Before cleaning, you can gently smooth the bristles with your hands.
Step 1: Place the bristles of the brush face down so that the hairs are closest to the warm flowing water.
Step 2: Gently pinch the bristles' wet fibers and then gently squeeze the remaining lotion or excess water.
Step 3: Put a dime-sized olive oil and neutral soap on the palm of your hand.
Step 4: Massage the mane of the brush onto the soap solution on the palm, while letting water flow through the hair. Move the bristles in a gentle, gentle circular motion.
Step 5: Once the water flowing through the bristles becomes clear, stop the water flow. Make sure that the water flow does not flood the brush head.
Step 6: Use a towel to squeeze out the excess water remaining in the brush gently.
Step 7: Dry the bristles with free-flowing air.
B. Dry cleaning with powder
Prepare loose powder, clean and soft paper towels.
Step 1: Apply powder to the makeup brush.
Step 2: Wipe the powder brush back and forth on a soft paper towel until the dirt is removed.
Step 3: Repeat the operation until there are no extra colors in the brush.
Daily care and proper cleaning can make your brush last longer.
3. How to disinfect makeup brushes
There are ways of getting around purchasing a commercial makeup brush cleaner/disinfectant, and many products that are already in your home are less expensive to use. However, for natural makeup brushes, forget baby shampoo or Dawn and use Coconut Oil.
Coconut oil is also extremely effective at breaking down grime and dirt on your natural brushes, plus it has potent anti-bacterial properties.Step 1: Mix one tablespoon of raw, unrefined organic coconut oil and one tablespoon of baby shampoo with a little water to make a thick lathery paste.
Step 2: Swirl the brush in the paste to make sure all bristles are covered.
Step 3: Rinse under a warm running tap (make sure the water is warm enough to get the oil out).
Though not the way to sanitize natural brushes, you can use alcohol to disinfect your synthetic brushes.
Step 1: Mix one part water to one part alcohol and throw in a drop of dish soap or shampoo.
Step 2: Swirl the brush in the solution.
Step 3: Rinse in warm water, squeeze, reshape and dry.
The above are some small suggestions for cleaning and maintaining makeup brushes, and we hope to help you.
