Wow. It has been an incredibly long time since I've posted. I decided that this year I'm going to make more of an effort to post tutorials, both in video and photo form. I'll throw in other random posts too, but as I'm working towards understanding hair and makeup techniques better, I'll share my experiences.
If there is anything in particular that you'd like to see this year, please let me know. Now on to the tutorial.
I clean my makeup brushes using two different techniques. The deep clean technique, using shampoo and water, is done on a bi-weekly basis. I clean my brushes after each use with the Mary Kay Brush Cleaner to extend the life of my brushes. A bonus is that I minimize breakouts and muddying my cosmetics by keeping the brushes clean and dry.
We'll go over the shampooing method first. I should say that this process can be a bit time consuming, depending on how dirty your brushes are and how many you have. But if you spot clean the brushes after each use, you can minimize the time that this will take. It is also important to understand that using this method, brushes will need to dry for at least a few hours before the next use.
|Rinse well with lukewarm until the water runs clear. Spread the bristles with your thumb and forefinger to ensure that all makeup and shampoo has been rinsed.|
|Take a paper towel and lightly squeeze the bristles until all excess water has been removed.|
|Lay brush over edge of table so that the brush can dry without flattening the bristles. And you are all done! Yay!|
|For this you will need a paper towel and a brush cleaning spray. I use Mary Kay brush cleanser.|
|Spray three or four pumps of cleanser onto the brush until the bristles are sufficiently damp. The goal here is to get the bristles wet, not sopping.|
