Though this is one area of our beauty routines that most of us girls tend to overlook, cleaning makeup brushes is on of the most important things we can do. Brushes are an investment and if you want them to last a very long time, you have to take care of them. Brushes also tend to be a breeding ground for bacteria which means if you aren’t cleaning them, you are essentially rubbing bacteria all over your face. And nobody wants that, right?
An added benefit of clean brushes is that they will be super soft. Makeup buildup can make your brushes feel stiff and scratchy so regular cleanings will help keep them soft and supple.
We found this short video by our friends over at PureWow that shows you the best way to clean your brushes. We like this method because the olive oil conditions the brushes while the soap cleans them.
