How to Clean Your Makeup Brushes

We all know that quality makeup brushes can be quite an investment. Makeup brushes, to me, are just as important as the cosmetics themselves where overall results are concerned. Properly cleaning them not only keeps the brushes themselves nice and well-conditioned, but it can keep your skin cleaner and clearer as well. Keep your brushes performing their best by following a few easy cleaning tips and methods from my tutorial below so they'll stay perfect for years to come!

  4. Hi,Tiffany!
    Thank you for great advice... I am just wondering-do the brushes feel the same after cleening them?
    And-could you please tell me which colours you hav used on your eyes? It looks great :)

    (or maybe someone else here can help me?)

    Have a nice day!

  7. I am definitely going to buy the MAC brush cleanser, it certainly seems to clean the brushes well and quickly! I am guilty of putting my brushes up vertically and letting the water go downwards...oops, won't be doing that again!

    Your face looks flawless as well and I adore your jewellery, you always have the best!

  10. Linda-Kristen: If you use the MAC brush cleanser, or another similar one, it should keep it's original feel. The MAC one has a conditioner made into it as well, so that keeps it from drying out and causing the bristles to change texture. Also, make sure to cleanse them gently like I said and don't scrub them or be too rough with them.

    For those wondering about my eyeshadow colors, I used MAC Artifact paint pot and the Star Violet eye shadow by MAC as well. :)

  14. I'm using the Make Up Forever brush cleanser I think it should be similar to the Mac one but it comes in a spray bottle.

  17. I have a question about the skunk brushes, or black-bristled MAC brushes. Have you ever had the problem that after deep-cleaning/shampooing those particular brushes, and if you lay them on a paper towel or towel and come back the next morning when they're dry you find a peach-coloured ring around where the black bristles were laying? Like, even if you've never used the brush for foundation...

    It just concerns me about why mine do that :S
