When it comes to wearing makeup, it's imperative to make sure that you occasionally wash your makeup brushes. Washing your brushes at least twice a month, not only prevents breakouts and build up, but it allows for your makeup to look effortlessly flawless. The great thing about washing your brushes is it's not a tedious job, you don't have to go out and purchase any products and it isn't time consuming. All you'll need is a gentle anti-bacterial soap or makeup cleanser, olive oil, a cup or bowl and water.
Steps: Take one brush at a time and add add soap. Lather the soap on the brush and do gentle motions back and forth on the inside of your hand. Gentle dip the brush into the oil and sit to the side until you're last brush. Rinse brushes under water until all residue is completely eliminated. Allow brushes to dry for a couple hours sitting face up. Use as new.
Follow these simple steps and you'll never have to worry about clogged pores or an annoying pimple again.
