How to Clean Your Makeup Brushes

High quality makeup brushes are a super important tool to have in your beauty kit as they're necessary for a flawless, sleek finish. These should be considered important investments and like with any investment, you need to take care of them.

Brushes should be cleaned at least monthly, but preferably weekly to prevent a buildup of bacteria.

Fast, easy cleaning method:

You will need:
-2 tsp Baby Shampoo
-1 cup warm water

1. Fill your bowl with water and add the baby shampoo (if your brushes need a deeper initial clean add a bit more shampoo)
2. Place your brushes in the water and let them steep for about 1 minute.
3. Use your hands and gently massage the makeup out of the bristles then rinse each brush under the tap
4. Pour out the water from the bowl and refill with 1 cup warm water and 1 tsp baby shampoo
5. Soak your brushes again and massage
6. Run under lukewarm water and gently rub the brushes, when the water runs clear you are done
7. Using your towel pat and gently press the brushes to relieve most of the moisture
8. Gently reshape the bristles and lay them flat to dry

Younique's brushes are high-quality brushes that have an inner high-quality copper ferrule - which means it won't rust when you use them wet or dry. They are made to last a lifetime, and are cruelty-free.
