Regularly washing out your makeup brushes should be an important part of your routine. You may not realize it, but makeup brushes tend to accumulate a lot of bacteria. Since these are tools you use on your face, it is important that they are clean and disinfected in order to avoid skin problems. Not washing out your brushes can also lead to color mixing when applying makeup due to old pigment and residue build-up on the brush. Even though it sounds like a lot of work, cleaning your makeup brushes doesn’t take a lot of time. You can always pick up a professional cleaner from any cosmetics store, but you will probably go through the product quickly and cleaning solutions tend to run a little pricey if you clean your brushes regularly. An easy technique you can use at home will only require some dish soap, a little olive oil, and some paper towel. Watch the helpful tutorial below to learn how you can use these items to easily wash your brushes at home!
