Do-it-yourself brush cleaning

Posted by Margarita Potts on February 9, 2010 at 9:50 AM

Today's installment: Do-it-yourself brush cleaning.





If you're making an investment in high-quality tools, then it's important that you know the correct way to maintain them. Though people don't often think to wash their make-up brushes, it's very important that you keep them clean, because they harbor lots of dirt and bacteria, which can cause breakouts and make your make-up go on clumpy. Ewe YUCK :roll:


Ideally, you should wash any brush that you use for liquid make-up (including concealer, foundation, lip products, cream shadows, and so on) after each use!


For brushes used with powder, clean them every two weeks.

Gently run your make-up brushes under lukewarm water. Swish them around in the sink until the water runs clear. Hold the brush under the water with the handle pointing up so that you don't irreparably damage the brush.

Add a small amount of mild shampoo or GENTLE handwashing detergent like Wool Light (I LUV Victoria's secret Lavish Laundry mmmmm) to the palm of your hard and swish your brush around in your hand and then under the water.

*Keep in mind that natural bristle brushes need gentler soaps.



Rinse your hand and the brush thoroughly, then wring out the water from the brush. To retain the shape of the brush hair, gently squeeze to remove all traces of soap and water and place them so they can dry flat on a clean dry towel.



When working on movie sets and shows I sanitize using 91% alcohol (from a spray or pump type bottle) in between each client - to kill any bacteria before working on next actor or model. Simply spray or pump sanitizer onto brush and lint free paper towel. Then use quick back-n-forth-paint-like-strokes on paper towel to disenfect and dry your brushes quickly.
