Brew Beauty: Cleaning Your Brushes

The new year, new you quest continues... in your makeup bag.  If you can't remember the last time you cleaned your makeup brushes, you nasssy.  But, we won't judge.  We'll just tell you how to clean 'em.

First off, you really should be giving your brushes a good wash at least once a week, more if you have acne or breakout prone skin.

Use a mild shampoo (or a makeup brush cleanser, most major cosmetic lines sell them) on each brush. Rinse and lather them up, rinse again, squeeze out the excess water, then let them air dry.  Do not let your brushes soak in soapy water for too long or they won't get truly clean.

If you find you're losing a lot of bristles from your makeup brushes, it could be time to replace them and upgrade to a better set.  High quality brushes can stand a lot of wear and tear.

Here's to keeping you beautiful in 2010!
