So you can definitely prolong the life of your beloved makeup brushes if you can take good care of your brushes. Today we will introduce you some tips how to take care of your brushes.
Tip 1: Use your makeup brushes correctly
You should not use too much pressure when using your makeup brushes, because too much pressure may cause damage to the brushes and shorten the life of the brushes. Also just avoid to use one or two makeup brushes for everything. Each makeup brush has its own individual design, you can’t use the eye shadow brush to draw your eyeliner or eyebrow. Furthermore, before you use your makeup brushes, you need to shake your makeup brush several times and try to shake out the excess powder in the brush.

Clean brushes means clear skin. Absolutely you can imagine that they have carried germs and bacteria if you never or little wash the brushes which will cause terrible skin problems. So it’s necessary to clean your brushes regularly. In addition, the material of each brush is different, so the cleaning frequency is also different. As for the natural hair brushes that used for the dry products like powder, eyeshadow and blush can be cleaned just once a month. Because the natural hair brushes, such as squirrel hair, are not only expensive but delicate.The most delicate hairs should be washed as little as possible to reduce the damage to the brush hairs. For the fibre material makeup brush that used for the liquid/cream products like lipstick, gel liner, gloss, cream blush, foundation, and concealer should be cleaned once a week. Because the fibre makeup brush is suitable for wet cosmetics, it is easy to breed germs which can cause breakouts, styes, or even herpes outbreaks.
