How To Clean Makeup Brush

  1. Use warm water to saturate the brush hairs only. Be sure not to soak your brush as this will ruin it.
  2. Place a pea-sized amount of any mild shampoo, into the palm of your hand and massage the cleanser into the hair. Do this until the cleanser has been completely dispersed among the brush hairs.
  3. Rinse the brush thoroughly until the water runs clear.
  4. Repeat as necessary.
  5. Create a ring with your index finger and thumb and pull the brush through the fingers while applying gentle pressure to remove excess water and maintain the brushes shape.
  6. Place on a towel and lay flat to dry. Never dry your brush in an upright position as this will loosen the glue that binds the brushes and lead to hair loss.

Never place your brushes in a sterilizer because it will permanently damage them.
