To ensure the quality and longevity of your makeup brushes, it is important to clean and store ￼them properly. Firstly, it is important to know the anatomy of your brushes. The brush is ￼composed of 3 parts: the handle, the ferrule (connecting the bristles and the handle), and the ￼bristles. Any makeup brush, regardless of its make, size, type, material, quality, or cost is still in ￼its simplest form composed of the basic parts. As such, you should not let water run in the ￼center middle part of the bristles - where water will seep through the ferrule and cause ￼separation between the 2 parts. Instead, follow these simple instructions:
Step 1: With the ￼brush angled horizontally and parallel to the ground, run the bristles under warm running ￼water from the middle of the ferrule up to the bristles.
Step 2: Apply a small amount of baby ￼shampoo to the bristles and work into a light lather
Step 3: Rinse bristles thoroughly under ￼running water until no color leaves the brush
Step 4: Allow the brush to air-dry, remember to ￼lay flat. For a quick fix or for lightly used brushes, simply dab a small amount of brush cleaner ￼on a tissue and gently sweep the bristles back and forth until no color remains. Brushes are made to last for years if taken care of the correct and proper way.
