Brush Cleaning 101

Your cosmetic brushes move from your makeup bag, into your beauty products, onto your face and sometimes even onto your bathroom vanity, each and every day! They come into contact with so many different surfaces (or people) that they’re bound to encounter some bacteria too.

It is therefore essential that washing your makeup brushes should be a regular part of your beauty routine. In fact we suggest that brushes used daily should be cleaned once a week.
