The Right Way to Clean Your Makeup Brushes

Streaky makeup. Breakouts. Skin irritation. There are plenty of reasons to wash your makeup brushes regularly, but that doesn't make it any less tedious. Still, after each use, brushes accumulate more and more makeup, oil and bacteria, all of which can lead to many skin issues such as clogged pores, inflammation, and irritation. What's more, dirty brushes hinder a smooth and flawless application. Another piece of motivation: Taking good care of your makeup brushes with regular cleaning also extends their lifespan.

The question then is: how do you actually clean your makeup brushes? The process is simpler than you may think. Ahead, learn how to clean makeup brushes properly and best practices to follow.
