How to Properly Clean Makeup Brushes & Blenders
Your beauty blenders and makeup brushes are perhaps one of the most intricate parts of your beauty regime, right? But how often do you end up in a soup while trying to clean them? Frequently right? Or does the trouble of cleaning your blenders and brushes make you dread the task? Here is the perfect solution to your problem. So go ahead and read this piece, and by the end of it, you will know precisely how to complete this troublesome task with ease.
Basic steps for cleaning your blenders & brushes
What you should do first is properly rinse your blenders and brushes. For this, you should use warm water and keep massaging your blenders and brushes gently. This will remove some of the stubborn oils and makeup from them.
After you have rinsed your brushes and blenders, now you can add some soap. Make a handful of lather out of the soap with water and apply that to your products. You must keep an eye on that the lather doesn’t reach the brush’s bristles. This is because the glue that keeps the bristles attached is quite sensitive to soaps.
Now it’s time to scrub your beauty blender and brushes. If you want, you can use your hands to scrub them properly or have the other option of silicone gloves or scrubbing pads. Just move along the brushes and blenders in a repetitive motion, and this will clean them perfectly.
After you are done cleaning and scrubbing these products, now it is time to rinse them again. This rinsing makes sure that there is no residual makeup left on them. Furthermore, you can opt for lukewarm water for rinsing as you did initially, but don’t warm the water too much. After rinsing, you need to remove the excess water, so gently squeeze the blenders and brushes.
The final step is to dry out the brushes and blenders. This will remove the excess water which stays in the brushes. After you have removed the excess water, now gently nudge your brushes and blenders to reverse them back to their original shapes. One more thing that you must make sure of while drying the products is drying them with bristles facing down. If you do the reverse, then water might seep into the glue, and there goes your blender!
Now that you have learned how to keep your beauty blenders and brushes clean properly, you can clean them once every week. This method is super easy, and you can do it in an instant!
