Tips on how to wash your brushes:
When wetting your brush be sure to hold it head down at an angle under LUKE WARM water. Why not hot water? If you use hot water it will break up the glue in the ferrule which will loosen the bristles and destroy your brush.
**Also, DO NOT submerge your brush and DO NOT run water into the ferrule. Doing this will also loosen the glue in the brushes.
Be sure to work a small amount of the cleanser into the hairs. Wash thoroughly but gently – DON’T scrub.
A big part of cleaning your brushes is how you dry them… DO NOT stand them up. This allows water to run into the ferrule which loosens the glue as well.
I always shake the water off and then lay them on their side over the counter. Make sure to shape the brushes don't leave them roughed up.
How often should you wash your brushes? Some you will need to wash more often than others, foundation and concealer brushes need to be washed weekly, while blush and powder brushes monthly.
I like to use a shampoo on my brushes, but dish soap works well also!
