How do I care for my brushes?
Firstly, always transport them in the cotton drawstring bag you received when you bought your brush. This reduces the amount of bacteria, fuzz and other stuff they could collect when they are in a makeup bag. At home you can keep them head up in a glass.
Taking proper care of your brushes is super important! To make sure they remain soft and working wonderfully, they have to be washed regularly. Also, keep hygiene in mind! The cleaner the better, and there is no chance of getting an infection or maybe a pesky rash, your makeup will look better and there are less breakouts! So on that note, wash your brushes at least once a week.
Use a gentle baby shampoo, or brush cleaner. Get the brush wet, put a very small amount of shampoo in the palm of your hand and swirl the brush around in it so you work up a lather. You don’t have to be too gentle (but also not too rough), swirl, press the brush down and rub it against you fingers. After you have done that for a few minutes, rinse the brush (also here, swirling, pressing and rubbing against fingers) in tepid water until all the shampoo has all come out and the water runs clear. Press out the water still in the brush head and then do the same with the brush in a fresh towel. Bring the brush head back into it’s original shape and lay them down horizontally on a clean piece of kitchen roll to dry. Click here to take a look at a clip on our YouTube channel!
Remember: The cleaner your brushes and sponges are, the better they work and the cleaner they are to work with, and the better for your skin they are.
How do I clean my sponge correctly?
Cleaning the sponge is easy and takes not time at all! Your sponge should be washed every time you use it.
Take the sponge and run it under cold water, squeezing it so it soaks up water. Then put a tiny squirt of baby shampoo into the palm of your hand. Take the sponge and gently start working up a lather by swirling it in circles and pressing the sponge together, and into the palm of your hand. Once you have done this for a few minutes you can start to rinse out the sponge. Run it under cold water again and compress the sponge until the water runs clear again and all the soap has been washed out. It's totally normal if your sponge looses a bit of color. Take the sponge and wrap it in a clean towel and compress it so the last of the water comes out. Then place the sponge upright so it can dry completely.
