That's right, a cleanser specifically designed for your makeup brushes, not your face. Definitely not for your face. Now that Spring is officially here, it's time to give your makeup and the tools you use everyday a good once over. Ideally, you should clean your makeup brushes once a week (I like to do mine on a Sunday morning all fresh for Monday) to remove all the dirt and leftover product from the previous seven days. This will ensure you don't transfer any nasty bacteria onto your face and cause a breakout. Just think, every time you use your brushes — especially during a touch up — you're picking up the dirt and sweat on your face and leaving it to fester on your brushes. Charming, no? Cleaning brushes doesn't have to be a chore, it is actually really quick and easy. Wet the brush under warm water, spray or dunk in some brush cleanser and then rinse until clean. Just be sure to reshape the hairs before leaving out to dry. Click through to see our top five brush cleansers — happy cleaning!
Working toward clearer-looking skin means taking the proper precautions: washing your face every night, not wearing makeup while working out, and cleaning your makeup brushes regularly. These three cleansers are your best bet when it comes to disinfecting, and one is probably in your shower right now. Plus, they won't break down the glue that holds your brushes together.
