Obviously brushes are important because without them you wouldn’t be able to do your makeup! Keeping your brushes clean and safely putting them away makes a major difference in the health and longevity of your brushes. But are you doing it properly?
The best way to store your makeup brushes is within an area that is dustproof. You’re probably thinking that doing something as such is nearly impossible because dust is pretty much everywhere. Wrong! Believe it or not a simple apothecary jar with a lid will allow for you to have a dust free environment for your brushes!
Cleaning your brushes is no fun but the best way to do so is by purchasing a cleaning solution specifically made for makeup brushes. I currently use the KQD Brush Cleaning Solution (coming soon) and a silicone makeup brush scrubber. I pour some of the KQD brush cleaning solution within small plastic container and I lightly dip my brush in the solutions (not fully submerging it into the liquid) and gently run the brush back and forth along the silicone makeup brush scrubber. I then let the brushes dry for 5 – 10 minutes before using.
