A common question I am frequently asked is... How does one clean makeup brushes?
drum roll... Brush Cleaner! [or a gentle shampoo]
There are so many kinds out there. Simply using a mild shampoo works perfectly fine but for that extreme clean, brush cleaner is available from many cosmetic lines.
Some of the more 'quick dry' professional ones use a dry cleaner fluid so you need to be aware of what you are using. The pro-brands that dry quickly can also dry out your brushes causing them to wear quicker.
- Using tepid water get the bristles a wet.
- Swipe bristles gently back and forth in shampoo
- Rinse with the water flowing down off the tip of the bristles so as not to trap water into the base of the bristles
- Leave to dry hanging over a sink or counter edge

Labeling your brushes is a great idea for those who work with teams or if you have a house full of girls!
