Cleaning Makeup Brushes Methods

How-to: Care for and Clean Makeup Brushes

 Oils from skin and dust adhere to brushes and can cause breakouts. It is important to clean your personal brushes regularly and your demo brushes between clients.
Quick Dry Method:
Dampen a section of a paper towel with Fast Drying Brush Cleaner and wipe brush form side to side. (You can also use Rubbing Alcohol but this may be drying and harsh on the brushes over time).  As the towel gets dirty, dampen another section and repeat. Not only will this clean the brushes, but the Brush Cleaner / Alcohol evaporates quickly for a clean brush that’s ready to go.
Shampoo and Conditioner:
You can use a mild baby shampoo or an anti-bacterial soap. Rinse brush head gently under lukewarm water, with the brushes at a 45 degree angle pointing down, using fingers to massage shampoo/Soap to hair. Apply in the direction of the hair from ferrule towards top. (Ferrule: The metal part of the brush between the hair and handle). Rinse gently under running water, thoroughly. If desired, follow as above with conditioner. Gently reshape the head of the brush and lay flat over the edge of a table or counter so that the bristles are open to the air on all sides. Allow to completely dry for a few hours and then simply hand fluff back to shape.
Be careful not to let any cleaner or water run inside the ferrule (the metal part of the brush between the hair and handle). This can weaken the glue used to hold the hair and cause shedding problems or even loosen handles. Always lay brushes flat to dry. Do not blow dry – this will cause the hair to frizz.
With proper care, your brushes will be enjoyed for years
