As we all know the fact that effectve tools always help in creating a master peice, especially in art work. If proper tools are used while cooking then we get the perfect texture & consistency of the food. Same goes with makeup, If proper tools are used they can help us creating what we always dreamed for. But if they are poorly cared?
- They shed
- Fibres lock the pigments colours in them, Does not wash off easily
- Spore formation, Which can damage our skin.
So, Today ill show you guys how i wash my makeup brushes, I dont use any makeup brush remover, I belive in washing them off and leting them drying through out the whole night. Lets get started.
1- Rinse the brush in running water
2- Take any liquid body soap, Small amount
3-Run your brush back & forth in that soap, You will notice all the makeup is coming out.
4- After you notice all the left over of makeup coming out, Rinse it in water again.
5- Take out a small amount of liquid soap again
6- Run your brush again, Untill it makes lather,So that the brush is free from all impurities & bacteria
7- Rinse throughly, In cold water, Warm water can help in melting the adhesive present inside the brush bristtle which can end up in shedding of bristles.
8- Dry the brushes with clean & sanitized towel
9- Let those brushes dries in upside down position, so that moisture doesnot get absorbed in brush bristle, Trust me this trick is effective.
*I recommend deep washing those brushes by which we apply liquid & cream based products like Liquid foundation & creme blushes etc. Other wise repeat this process only one time if powder products are used.
HOW TO DO SPOT CLEANING OF BRUSH:
You can spot clean the makeup brushes by using brush cleaner available. It hard to find over here in Pakistan. Home made brush cleaner is also not that effective as i have heard they leave the brushes with greasiness. If you have brush cleaner liquid then well & good, If not you can have an alternative as i do have and that is alcohol pads isopropyl 70%. They are basically for medical purpose. You can find them in good drug store or pharmacy.
1- Take out the alcohol pad like this
2- Run the brush back & forth, You will notice the bristles are leaving all the makeup left over on the pad. This way you can spot clean & sanitize the brush When you dont have time to wash & wait for the brush to dry so thats a smart alternative.
*I hope this description will help many of you. Save your skin & makeup brushes.
