Clean Your Makeup Brushes

Saturday, September 12, 2009

When you do clean your brushes and when you do lay them to rest?  

When your brushes are splayed (fanning out left to right), they are shedding consistently (meaning the crimp by the handle is loosing it’s grasp on the bristles).  Your brushes can last you a couple years if they are washed and sanitized at least monthly (preferably at the end of each week of use).  The cleaner the brush, the clearer your completion.  Simple fact and you are not messaging residual oil and bacteria back into the skin.  E.l.f.'s value-priced makeup brushes enable women to have multiple brush sets so one brush can be used while the other is being cleaned and air dried (for the same price of 1 to 2 high priced brushes of the same quality).  Finally, our professional make-up wedges allows for easy blending and instant disposal so you always start of with a clean applicator.  What could be better than that!

I always hate how a brush looks clean when you know its really not. the idea of makeup wedges are awesome. I will start using those instead.

I clean my brushes once a week. I once saw a magnified photo of a blush brush that hadn't been cleaned in over a month... there were 'things' crawling around on it... ewwww.
