Let’s face it. There are a million and one things you would prefer to do with your weekend than wash your make-up brushes. Fact. It’s time consuming, messy and a little bit boring. However, it is also incredibly important for one very good reason. Every time you use a brush, you’re picking up bacteria and oils present on your skin which, over time, build up on the brush. The idea of spreading and re-spreading bacteria on your face isn’t too appealing.
For this reason, I use an anti-bacterial spray on all my brushes between clients and have a wide range of make-up brushes available to ensure excellent hygiene standards are maintained. Then, after every wedding or occasion, my brushes will be thoroughly cleaned.
Whilst it is unrealistic to suggest you clean your brushes after every make-up application, I’ve put together some advice for keeping your brushes in tip top condition whilst making it as painless as possible.
